This was my first reintroduction to the Hampton Inn chain in quite a while. THe new look includes the use of shower stalls rather than bathtubs. I don't much care for their breakfast which includes the cereal dispensed by pulling a lever--I always feel like a lab rat getting these. However, what put this location at a very higher rating was:
--the TV channel selection was very good. Usually you get just a few but I was able to watch the Tour de France.Awesome
-checkin ladies were very helpful
-Goodies including available popcorn, trail mix, etc in the lobby in the evening won me over. Yes, you can buy my vote with popcorn and cookies and cold water. And fresh fruit. Didn't like breakfast but it goes with the chain.
