My family is usually a loyal Hampton Inn customer but when I saw a Groupon for this hotel and saw the reviews I figured we would give it a try. And we were not disappointed! The hotel is renovated and modern and up to date. The check in was easy and the front desk ladies were friendly and engaging. Everything about the hotel was clean and fresh. Our room was great - all the amenities you'd expect. Fridge and microwave and a little kitchenette area. Clean, clean, clean. Kids loved the indoor pool and I went in as well. Usually pools tend to skeeve me out but this one did not as it was clean and there was nothing gross about it. Water was warm and the kids had a blast. The complimentary breakfast rivaled the hotel's competitors, for sure! The dining area is on the third floor (maybe avoid rooms on that end of the 3rd floor as I bet it can get noisy in the mornings!) with a nice view. All the usual options one would expect and even more! For example, there were 2 waffle makers which is great to cut down on waiting time as everyone always seems to want waffles. In addition to regular waffle batter there was blueberry waffle batter. And there was an automatic pancake maker - never seen that before! All the usual breakfast amenities and I was happy they had flavored coffee creamer. The breakfast room attendants were friendly and personable. There is a little snack area you can purchase things from next to the front desk and they have the battlefield tour book and CD too. The water fountain near the lobby also has the option to fill a water bottle which I always love to find. Coffee and tea in the lobby, a computer station area, and lots of brochures. Checkout was fast and again, friendly. I can see why this hotel is top ranked...they care about the customer experience and it shows! Kids are already asking to go back.Another plus was that you can walk to a lot of attractions, shops and restaurants which was great after spending time in the car to get there and not wanting to get back in it after checking in. less

Thank you for trying our hotel and the great review! We have our 3 year anniversary coming up this May. Having the view we do we thought breakfast on the third floor would be something different for a guest than the standard lobby. The pancake machine is very cool to use. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Look us up next time you are in town.
