I wish I could keep it a secret! ;) However.., we just got back from a mini vacation in OC MD, Day at the office was slow so I looked at my partner let go to OC now, called my kids to pack, we are going in an hour. It was not so easy to get a room since Kayak and other sites have listed it as sold out, my intuition guided me to call the hotel, Mary a lovely and kind lady helped us and booked the room. All we knew - that the hotel is new, how can we go wrong with a week old hotel we thought? and Hampton Inn? We got to the hotel, great fast check in! lovely, smiling people checked us in (sorry for not remembering all names but the one who stood out was Taylor and I believe her name was Angie.
The Hotel: is beautiful! Everything is clean and NEW!!!!! they were still working on installing some thing and running things smoothly. We asked for recomendation for healthy dinner with young teenagers and one of the staff told us about a good a sushi place as we spoke to the staff member the lady behind the desk got on the restaurant site and printed the address, the menu AND.... a 10% coupon! (I was so happy about the way she helped us! and was very grateful!).
Room: is BEAUTIFUL! CLEAN! NEW!!!
The only thing that was not so great was the smell of a fresh painted room!! I think we are the first ones who stayed in the room and two of us are sensetive to fresh paint smell which caused a bit of a headache, (we stayed most of the time out and came back to sleep because we were busy)
Staff: is soooo FRIENDLY and HELPFUL!!!! they really go out of their way to help and please.
Pool area is mostly done and you will see worker touching up.
Pool and Hot Tub - BEAUtiFUL!
Breakfast was a bonus! we are vegetarians, eggs were made with bacon, and when we were asked if everything is ok by the breakfast staff we recommended to make eggs w/out meat so others can enjoy it, the staff member immediatley offered to make the eggs for us!!
Karen the manager (I believe) was willing to make the eggs for our satisfaction and said that they are not really supposed to do it, we told her we are on the way to bike riding and we will be back, Karen advice us where to get bikes and how to get the coupon to recieve $2 off each bike, we followed her advice and saved on the rental.
When we came back Karen asked if we are ready to eat and brought us the eggs w/out meat!!
THANK YOU KAREN ! My kids were happy!
Later that day we asked the concierge Zack if he knows a place to rent Jet Ski and he recommended a place, as I'm saying , "...oops I forgot something in the room I will be back", when I got back Zack already printed the Jet Ski's address and handed it to us!!!
Once again I was so happy with their service and care. Thanks Zack we had fun!
We have asked for a late check out and they allowed us to stay longer.
Check out was a bit long, as the computer sys. did not work so well, but we entertained our selves with hot chocolate and coffee.
We Will Come Back!
Thank You for making our mini vacation so much fun!
