An “open kitchen” experience, a new lobby bar in the Palm Court and outdoor seating that will add 55 seats to the Pine Room Pub are all slated for completion by September at Hotel Roanoke. Part of the motivation for the multi-million dollar renovation by the Hilton property is keeping current and fresh in the face of stiff competition for the major conference business that is expected to pick up again in the Fall. General manager Brian Wells:
