Was in the middle of a very cold Pittsburgh winter so I suggested we burn some HHonors points and book a reasonably nearby hotel with an indoor pool.
I looked at what Hilton properties were within a 50 mile area and compared them with some tripadvisor’s reviews. After a bit of ciphering I pulled the trigger and spent the night at the Hampton Inn and Suites Blairsville and was pleased I did.
I booked a Studio Suite which required the same number of HHonors points as the other rooms. I have found in my travels that the word suite is used a lot lately. In this case the room was very clean and accommodating, but I would better characterize it as a very large room as opposed to a suite.
The whole property including the rooms were very well kept and the service some of the best I have received in any of my travels with staff more than accommodating. Our two year old was crying as they wanted milk at 3 am and we relented, but didn’t have to drive to a convenience store as the night desk went back to the pantry and brought us a cup.
This Hampton property had a small ‘store’ that offered quite a bit of items including snacks etc.. (oddly they did not have milk) but I was shocked and delighted to see how reasonable the prices were. Beers were 3.00 and a large glass of wine 6.00. Non alcoholic drinks and snacks were about what you’d pay at a convenience store.
As for the pool, the reason we stayed, it was fantastic because it was well kept and warm. While not huge but it served its purpose, plus we had the pool to ourselves as no other guests were swimming when we were there. I have noted that most indoor pools are a bit chilly leading to my kids shivering after swimming for just a bit, as I said above I am happy to say the heated indoor pool was actually pretty warm and it was nice to be swimming and looking out all of the windows at a golf course covered in snow. The hot tub was nice too, and was about average as hotel hot tubs go on temperature. I will note that the fitness center was being renovated; we didn’t come to use it but be aware if that is part of your needs.
All in all I would return, the kids are already asking when we are going swimming again. Will probably burn some more points in the near future.
Ask for a nice view of golf course.
