Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center
The Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center is Curio's first hotel in Virginia.

The Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center, with history dating back more than 130 years, joined Curio - A Collection by Hilton as the brand's first hotel in Virginia. The hotel is managed by Benchmark Resorts & Hotels and owned by Virginia Tech Real Estate Foundation.

Richmond, Virginia-based Glave & Holmes Architecture is renovating the property.

Originally built in 1882, the Tudor-style Hotel Roanoke retains aspects of the 1939 reconstruction, including marble floors and walnut paneling. Other hotel features include decorative murals of historical Virginia events and artwork from local and regional artists.  Designated as a National Historic Landmark, the hotel is also part of Historic Hotels of America.
