Location & Lodging

VIDA will be held at The Hotel Roanoke and Conference Center. Enjoy a memorable stay at The Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center, Curio Collection by Hilton. Built in 1882, this historic hotel is rich in tradition and charm, from the rocking chairs at the entrance to the murals on the walls. Along with a full restoration, the hotel gained a conference center in 1995 and an enclosed pedestrian path that connects the hotel to downtown Roanoke.

Each guest room has complimentary WiFi, a 46-inch HDTV, and ergonomic work area. Executive rooms offer a dedicated concierge and access to the Executive Lounge for light breakfast and evening snacks. Choose a suite for a living room with sofa bed - some suites also have a kitchenette, dining area and fireplace. Our spectacular 1,680 sq. ft. Penthouse Suite features two bedrooms, a rooftop terrace and private elevator. PURE Allergy Friendly Rooms are also available.

You'll find warm service and thoughtful extras at our Roanoke, VA hotel. The 24-hour business center has work needs covered, and our fully equipped fitness center is always open. Satisfy cravings with daily room service or a treat from the snack shop. Ask our staff about community partnership discounts for biking, kayaking and paddle boarding.
