    Sheraton Roanoke Hotel & Conference Center - Starwood Category 2
    2801 Hershberger Road, Roanoke,Virginia 24017
    Award Redemption: 4,000 pts OR 2,000 pts +$35
    Normal rate: $139 avg, ranging from $119 – $154
    Average Starpoints return: 5.2 cents/point (cash & points) – EXCELLENT

    Check-in/lobby:

    1st Stay: Booked Traditional, 2 Queens and “upgraded” to Club Floor, 2 Queens which is really only an upgrade by name only. Other than free bottled water, it means nothing at all.

    2nd Stay: Booked Traditional King and asked for a Suite at check-in and was initially told that they didn”t have any, but was then told that it was being cleaned and that I could try back around 4pm if I wanted to wait. I was in no hurry so I said that was fine. Received an”Accessible suite: King Bed, Non-smoking, 714 sq ft / 66 m².”

    Room: Both rooms I’ve stayed in, one in older, main tower, and the other in the secondary tower, have been newly remodeled Sheraton rooms.

    1st Stay: Traditional, 2 Queens: Room was in great shape, no complaints at all.

    2nd Stay: Accessible Suite: The suite was huge, beds comfortable and all around a better than the average Sheraton experience. Large living room with wet bar, sofa bed, 2 balconies and view overlooking airport.

    Bathroom: Bathrooms, like the rooms, were in great shape. Just like any newly constructed or newly renovated Sheraton.

    Gym: Gym is very big and nice, it was clean & fresh feeling with lots of natural light from the floor-to-ceiling windows.

    Property: Indoor and outdoor pools. Sprawling campus. Really can’t say enough how nice it is. Seems to be older Mountain Lodge/Conference center recently turned into a Starwood property.

    Restaurant: Shula’s 347 Grill is new, too — built about 2 years ago. Great food, I had the Salmon Special and ordered it medium. It arrived perfectly cooked and seasoned. I chose asparagus as the side, and it came with a great balsamic glaze drizzle. Simply steamed veggies. The craft beer list is nothing short of phenomenal. VERY well done for a hotel lobby restaurant.
