Hotel Roanoke, Roanoke, Virginia
Three central elements contribute to the success of a restaurant; the ambiance, the food and the service. This interior renovation focused on the first two, with special attention given to the transformation of the spaces that welcome guests, and display of the culinary gifts of the restaurant’s kitchen staff. Immediately upon entering the space, guests are greeted with a beautiful, custom-designed mahogany, curved front hostess stand and breakfront cabinet, displaying pieces of the Hotel Roanoke’s Regency Room’s iconic dogwood china pattern. To create a sense of arrival, one of the original chandeliers was reintroduced to the main entry where a custom designed Axminster carpet is inset into a walnut floor.

New, built-in cabinetry and flooring in the buffet entry and serving space create an elegant backdrop for the main attraction – the generous spread of carefully crafted food.

In the world of hospitality, appearances are everything. The before and after pictures of this exhibit hall speak volumes about just how important that element is when deciding on a venue for an event.

The light wall and carpet colors, dressed up columns, and floating ceiling clouds all help lend warmth to a space that had previously appeared more like a forgotten basement than a desirable event location. All of this leads to a now beautiful space that coincides with the southern hospitality people expect from Pinehurst Resort.
