Sunny skies illuminate the lobby of the award winning Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Front Royal Blue Ridge Shadows . The premier full service, conference center hotel in the Northern Shenandoah Valley. Travelers have plenty to see during their stay in the Front Royal, VA area. We are located adjacent to the rolling fairways of nationally recognized Blue Ridge Shadows Golf Club . If youre looking to explore, check out the natural wonders exhibited at Skyline Caverns and Luray Caverns or take a leisurely drive on Skyline Drive. We also highly recommend a visit to one of the many local vineyards. Our hotels location is convenient to Interstate 66 & Interstate 81 and local schools; Randolph-Macon Academy & Christendom College. Connect using the free high-speed wireless Internet. Take time to enjoy the heated indoor pool and whirlpool or relax on the spacious sundeck. You can enjoy delicious made-from-scratch meals at Houlihans Restaurant + Bar , located on the lobby level, which is why it is a true local favorite. Our hotel is ideally located for business and government travelers. Were a short drive from the U.S. Customs & Border Protection Canine Center Front Royal , FBI and ATF National Canine Training and Operation Center .

trip to the mountains

Very friendly staff. Nice to have indoor pool, spa, and restaurant on location. Nearby shopping and dining. Only thing not great about the stay was seeing a dog walking out the front door when this is supposed to be a 100 pet and smoke free hotel. Even the girl at the front desk was surprised.

Good Night's Rest

Our room was large and beds are nicely arranged. My wife uses a CPAP machine and there are plugin sites within easy reach of both beds, a real plus. Most hotels we have visited have electrical plugins located behind the headboard and are difficult to get to! Often these plugins are already being used to support bedside lights and a clock. Appears that an architect who had previously spent a night, or two in a hotel might have been on the hotel design team!!! The view of the mountains was wonderful.

Great stay for golfing

Stayed there to go hiking in Shenandoah and then golf at Blue Ridge Shadows Golf Club. It's a little far from much of the good hiking in Shenandoah (took us an hour to get to the trails we wanted to hike), but was a nicer hotel then the ones that were available near the trails. Luckily, it's right on a golf course which was very nice and allowed us to get a early start without waking up ridiculously early. Made for a very nice weekend and would gladly stay there again. Only thing I did not like was breakfast was not included in the price considering how much the room rate was.

Very Nice Hotel for the Money

I was in town to visit family but there were too many of us to stay together. I really appreciated the beautiful accommodations, comfortable bed, great shower and nice extras. I was very happy with the value I got for a really nice, upscale hotel experience.

Nice and overpriced

The hotel is nice and clean. We reserved a king room but got 2 queens, so I was not happy with that. With tax the room was 187 which I think is way too much, especially when you don't get the room you reserved. They gave a 20 dollar voucher for breakfast and we couldn't use it since we got to the restaurant near 11am. Another rip off in my opinion. The setting was pretty but isolated. Probably would not stay again if there are other rooms available in nearby areas.

Starting point for Shenandoah NP

Very satisfied with room - cleanliness and comfort. Linens and towels fresh and clean. Bathroom nicely sized with good counter space. Nice location for us to begin our visit to Shenandoah NP. Front Desk staff was the weak link - not rude but not particularly interested in being overly hospitable. Overall a very pleasant place to stay.

convenient location for reunion members to gather

The hotel and staff were very accommodating for our meetings and our needs. Houlihan's was an excellent, also accomodating place for our group.

Clean and convenient

We were on the last night of a week-long trip through Virginia and wanted to stay near Skyline Drive and convenient to Route 81 for our return trip. The hotel seemed brand new, though the helpful front desk person told us it's over 4 years old. If you want to be near town, it's a few miles out, but for our purposes, it was perfect: near gas stations and the highway (without any highway noise). My elderly relatives especially appreciated the firm beds. I liked the toiletries, an upgrade from the usual fare. Breakfast is not included, if that's important to you.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

If you are on the northern part of Skyline Drive, stop by for a meal or drink at Big Meadows Lodge. Relaxing, old-time lodge with good views and interesting food. It's about 1 to 1 1/2 hours to Front Royal, depending on whether you stay in the park or take the highway.
