Expect some serious Southern charm at this Tudor-style property in the heart of downtown Roanoke. A variety of rooms – including a wellness-themed category – feature antique-style furnishings, and many have a holiday-feel bright red. After exploring downtown, via a covered walkway, sip prohibition-era cocktails in the 1882 bar – named for the year the hotel first opened – under a starry sky from the restored hand-painted mural above. Try the mountain mule with a hint of apricot before dinner at the French-inspired restaurant.

Snag an apple from a bowl in the trendy lobby of this Hyatt Place near the airport and relax.
