The lexington Hampton is in a great location and the staff is great. The rooms are average for the price. We requested for a room away from the elevators and got a room next to the stairs and the utility room. The Hampton rented a room or rooms to a work crew who went to work every morning at 6...

Second time staying here. It's nice, like the location, being close to downtown Lexinton. Have family in Lexington and this location is convenient. Had to wait for the price to come down a bit. Holiday Inn Express has nicer rooms, however, has worse breakfast offerings.

Always comfy and welcoming, and the complimentary breakfast is a big plus. Close to the center of Lexington, within walking distance, and close to the highway into town. The only thing missing here would be a hotel bar.

We decided to stop in this hotel, not just once but twice. We were driving down south and our little one was getting tired. The hotel is clean and decent. The continental breakfast isn't bad either. This place is a lot better than I expected. I will use this hotel from now on when we travel. The bathrooms and beds...

Great place to stay - beautiful grounds and original mansion - entrance is beautiful and we rested very well - we were in town for two days and enjoyed our stay very much.The chocolate chip cookies when we walked in the door were a wonderful surprise! Lexington is a beautiful place.

Great room, great location. I have stayed here multiple times and continue to stay at this great historic hotel. The staff is helpful, the internet was reliable. Local places will deliver food directly to the room-which was a nice touch.

Lovely place! Historic hotel. Close to W&L campus and downtown shops and restaurants. Complimentary breakfast was one of the best we've ever had! Look forward to staying again soon! Rooms were clean and spacious.

This is an usually nice Hampton Inn. The property is gorgeous, and the hotel itself is attached to an historic house. I had a small issue with a dusty room, but it wasn't serious enough to report--just shared it with housekeeping. If you come to Lexington, VA, this is the place to stay.

What a delightful building to greet us late at night. The room was "up the ramp" which was easy to manage. very comfortable and the CUBS WON. Know that Hazleton, PA where we stopped on our way south was celebrating for the manager! Oh I digress - the breakfast was great for the starving husband and my cereal needs. I...

This is a very unique property. The main building is an historic mansion that has been converted into a Hampton Inn. The rooms are in a separate building with a covered path to the main building where the breakfast is.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In June of 1997 the tradition of Col Alto was reborn as it opened its doors once again to welcome visitors to the City of Lexington. Step onto the beautiful grounds of the Hampton Inn Lexington-Historic District hotel and be mesmerized. You'll find our breathtaking historic manor house-the Col Alto Mansion-nestled on seven acres. Stay in one of the 76 rooms featuring contemporary touches or one of the 10 restored manor rooms offering a glimpse into the past. Take a short walk and you'll discover Washington and Lee University. While there, be sure to see the historic landmark Lee Chapel and Museum. Pay respects at the cemetery named for 'Stonewall' Jackson, a Confederate general during the Civil War. Visit Virginia Military Institute, one of six senior military colleges in the United States. Hungry or in need of some retail therapy? Take a stroll down to Main Street to find lots of wonderful, locally-owned restaurants and unique shops. Or if you prefer, take a scenic drive down the road and you'll discover the beauty of nature at Natural Bridge, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Enjoy your stay in our Historic Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, VMI or the Washington and Lee Rooms featuring period décor within the Manor House with wine and hors d'oeuvres served upon arrival, breakfast served in-room, evening turndown service, and terrycloth robes or relax in our contemporary guest rooms and accessible rooms featuring a refrigerator and microwave. All rooms feature a 37-inch LCD HDTV with cable channels, lap desk and free Wi-Fi, and many rooms offer a wet or dry bar. Enjoy complementary hot breakfast in the manor house overlooking the grounds or perhaps a dip in the outdoor pool or whirlpool spa on a beautiful day. Get lost in time when you stay at the Historic Hampton Inn Col Alto. Located 8 miles off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Within walking distance to Historic Downtown Lexington, Washington & Lee University, Virginia Military Institute and minutes from Natural Bridge, Goshen Pass and McCormick Farm. ... more   less
