Heralded for its Beaux Arts design, Roman columns, marble lobby, balustrade roof and gilded ceiling trim, Roanoke’s Liberty Trust Hotel occupies a circa-1909 bank building that’s listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

The boutique hotel opened in March 2022 with 54 guest rooms, each appointed with a tufted leatherette headboard, built-in desk and a walk-in shower with striking geometric tile work. Deluxe king and corner double queen rooms offer gorgeous city and mountain views.
