If you are looking for a hotel with some interesting history, beautiful architecture and within walking distance to most of downtown Roanoke, this is a good place to stay. Our room, bedding and bathroom were nicely appointed and comfortable. The street traffic and proximity to the rail yard might bother you if you are sensitive to noise. But you can request a quieter location in the building before checking-in.

Property's Favourite Review
I'm not usually a fan of boutique hotels. They are often an excuse to charge high rates for an old and less than stellar hotel. However, this hotel is one of the exceptions. They did an excellent job when they renovated a bank building into the hotel it is today. Quality materials were used creating a truly high end experience. It's clear a lot of thought went into the guest experience at this hotel. The bed and pillows were incredibly comfortable. The linens were clean and smelled fresh. The bathroom towels are fluffy and large while the toiletries are nice. I enjoyed the in room electric kettle and black tea selection. It's rare, if not impossible, to find decent tea in a hotel room. The noise from surrounding guests wasn't noticeable if there was any. However, the street noise is about average for a city location. The hotel location is excellent. I took the train into town and simply had to walk across the street to the hotel. Plus, the hotel is in downtown Roanoke with many local stores and restaurants just outside the hotel's front doors. The hotel staff was friendly, helpful, and courteous. Additionally, I felt safe in this hotel with the key accessed front door in the evening and the key accessed elevator all day. I've stayed a lot of places in Roanoke and this is by far my favorite.

We stayed at the Liberty Trust for one night and had a room on the 7th (top) floor. Room was very large, bed could not have been any more comfortable, and the bathroom is large and beautiful. Love the windows that can look out over parts of Roanoke. We did have a leak under the bathroom sink during the night but since we did not notice until the morning and we were checking out, we just told them so they could have it fixed. They do have 24 hour maintenance people and had it been noticed earlier I would have let them know. They were very apologetic at checkout. And I have been in the travel business for years and I can say I have never had a nicer experience checking into the hotel. Parking is done at a garage a few doors away at a very reasonable overnight rate. You can pay for it at the hotel (same cost if you just drove into the parking garage) and they have a sticker you place on your ticket and you just insert your ticket when leaving the parking garage and go right out. The hotel is beautifully restored. And when the bar opens in October, it will be a wonderful place to have a drink. They have kept so many of the historical aspects of this hotel but modernized the rooms. Lots of places to eat and drink and shop within a 3-4 block area. This hotel and their employees (really only had interaction with the front desk and since with a follow up with the Interim General Manager) is without a doubt one of the best hotel stays I have had in my many years in the travel industry and I have stayed in a lot. Hats off to the hotel. Don't stay anywhere else in Roanoke!

This was a wonderful place to stay! The building is so beautiful and historic! It was very clean and the staff was very welcoming and helpful. I particularly loved the lobby. It seemed like the perfect place to relax, read a book, or even write a novel.

Wife and I live near Roanoke and wanted a quick getaway. We chose liberty trust for a night away. We were very pleased with the choice. A good experience all the way around. Friendly staff , lovely accommodations, the bed was very comfortable,and close to restaurants and bars downtown. Enjoyed the break and will do it again!

Unique property with exceptionally large rooms. Opened in March, the restoration and period touches make this a memorable stay. Large bank vault and marble floors in the lobby as well as original copper guest room doors add to the authenticity of the space. Street noise was bothersome but earplugs are provided if needed. Request a higher floor. Parking is available in a nearby garage for $8/night.

On a recent house-hunting trip to the Roanoke Valley in Virginia this week, my wife saw that a new hotel had opened in downtown - The Liberty Trust, a converted bank building. We like historic properties, found the price point very attractive and decided to give it a one-night try. Let me get the nice things out of the way - the room was well sized, the bathroom large, and the bed was comfortable. It was equipped with a small refrigerator and a European-style espresso maker (which I do not like). They did a nice job trying to retain the historic features. It has free wi-fi, so there's that. There are a couple of very good restaurants nearby and a top-rated place for breakfast (bring a mask). But here's what you need to know. There are practically no amenities. While I have no problem with handling bags myself (no help available), and even parking my own car (a block away in a public garage), there was no morning coffee available, no restaurant or food of any kind, no bar, no concession, no nothing other than I nice seating area. There is just one person at the desk. Period. And the rooms are not well insulated. We heard all kinds of notice throughout the nice, including people coming and going (in more ways than one). It is not a particularly quiet hotel, at least inside. If any of those amenities matter, I advise you not stay here. If you are looking for a truly minimalist experience in a historic building and don't mind noises, you might

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We wholeheartedly apologize for failing to meet expectations during your time with us, as it is our utmost importance to make sure our guests have a terrific experience during their stay. While guest rooms are equipped with a Nespresso machine, there are also hot water kettles accompanied with Tea Forte tea bags and instant coffee for those guests who do not prefer espresso. Additionally, we do offer daily complimentary coffee and tea in the morning located in our lobby area for all guests. We are regretful that our lobby bar was not open during your visit. However, we do want to let you know that we are in the process of finalizing our food & beverage concept and will be making an announcement soon. We greatly appreciate and value your feedback, and do hope that you will consider giving us another chance in the future.

I was ecstatic to see that I got a newly renovated, sparkling and gorgeous room with a view in the city center for the same price as the smelly and noisy one in Wake Forest NC and a mediocre one in Harrisonburg VA. The spacious bathroom had marble floors and designer shower bath. No unpleasant smells, no noises from the fridge or air conditioning. I would call it a luxury hotel if it had a breakfast room, which I am told is not yet finished. Also, it was really good to see the historic door to the old vault. It is a wonderful hotel in every way.

Great use of an old bank, beautiful building and room. Suggestions: Our room was huge but there are no chairs in the room, forcing us to sit uncomfortably on the bed. Also there are plans for a bar and to serve breakfast, but not till later. Disappointed with that. Why bother to open until everything is in place and ready. Coffee machines in the rooms are terrible.
