Downtown Roanoke

Roanoke has earned the nickname "Star City of the South" by being the recreational, cultural and business hub of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains. The nickname is also attributed to the iconic Roanoke Star, which sits atop Mill Mountain and overlooks the entire region.

The region boasts a unique railroad heritage, serving as home to the Virginia Museum of Transportation and its incredible collection of locomotives.The surrounding cities and counties that make up the Roanoke Valley host more festivals and cultural events than any place west of Richmond, and there's a vibrant nightlife scene that continues to grow.

With an outstanding offering of cultural activities and outdoor opportunities, the only difficult decision will be figuring out which things you won't have time to enjoy during your visit - from a relaxing time at the spa to the excitement of live sporting events or a shopping spree, it's all part of the fun in Virginia's Blue Ridge!

An 8-story tower was constructed, adjoining the 6-story section that withstood the fire, and and the new hotel was named the Ponce de Leon. Designed with lavish interior and geometric architecture patterns, this structure exemplified art deco motifs that were popular in America at the time.


The original structure at the corner of 2nd street and Campbell Avenue was built and named the Trout House, a 5-story hotel. It capitalized on its construction directly above the underground spring of Lick Run. Allegedly, owners stocked the spring with trout and served them in the hotel restaurant. In the 1920’s, owners expanded with a 6-story addition along Campbell Avenue. Ultimately, a fire destroyed the original 5-story segment in 1930.


During the 1970’s, the Ponce de Leon transformed from a hotel into an office building under new ownership. Growing demands of what had become Downtown Roanoke’s business district necessitated the operational shift. At this point, much of its characteristic design was covered or repurposed, in favor of simpler commercial features.


The Ponce de Leon is now revived as a mixed-use property offering apartments and commercial space. Historic elements from the 1930’s building have been recovered and restored.
