With many events slated in the beautiful Roanoke Valley during October, history has taught us that hotel rooms can become extremely scarce well in advance, and we urge you to secure your arrangements without delay.

We have arranged for a block of rooms to be made available at Cambria Suites and will have a shuttle running from there to the event. However, there are many other lodging opportunities available in the area.

This year we have decided to focus on providing “radical hospitality”. With this in mind, we will also work with anyone interested to find them a host family to stay with during their time at the conference. Just let us know of your interest in the registration process!

The Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center today features 330 luxuriously appointed guestrooms and a 63,000- square-foot, high-tech conference center. It is a joint project of Hotel Roanoke LLC, the City of Roanoke and Virginia Tech. In the beginning, Roanoke was a little town named Big Lick when enterprising railroad magnate Frederick J. Kimball chose it as the site of a railroad juncture and a major city. After Kimball combined two of his railroads into the Norfolk and Western Railroad, he built his vision of a comprehensive community with the Hotel Roanoke as its grand centerpiece. Travelers coming to the city or breaking a tiring rail journey made the Hotel Roanoke their haven.
