Stayed at the Hampton Inn Coventry this weekend while visiting family. We've always known it's been there, but we've always been partial to the Comfort Suites in West Warwick, but this time around his price was a little too steep, but this place had an amazing offer of $88/night advanced purchase. Considering our past experiences at Hampton Inn's around the country have been overwhelmingly positive, we figured this couldn't possibly be bad, but in the off-chance it would be, then we didn't lose too much money on it.
Luckily for us, this hotel is a phenomenal place to stay. It's located in Coventry, in the middle of a large shopping and restaurant complex, that also has two Marriot properties, an Applebees, a Cracker Barrel and a Denny's, as well as various other small restaurants. A Super Wal-Mart is located in the same area as well. More shops and restaurants are just one exit away in West Warwick.
As for the hotel itself, it's wonderful. The decor is very classy, and the beds are comfortable. The pool and workout room are some of the best I've ever seen. I adored the hot tub, and getting my workout in was better than normal because they have more than the standard treadmill, elliptical and bike.
Breakfast is delicious, featuring coffee/tea/hot chocolate, eggs, sausage, oatmeal, baked pastries/muffins/toast, make-your-own waffles, fruits and yogurts. More than enough to choose from.
The staff is also great. Front-desk features very welcoming and wonderful personalities, and the cleaning staff can be seen throughout the day touching up areas of the hotel. The breakfast attendant is also very nice and polite, and even helped a family who had never used the waffle irons before make theirs.
They definitely know what they're doing here, because there were two young hockey teams staying in our hotel for some tournament and we never had a single problem with noise or anything related to them-- a rarity in most hotels.
The only two things that knocked it down from a 5-star to a 4 1/2 star review were so minor that I normally wouldn't mention them, but I get the impression that this hotel is generally geared more towards business travelers, and one of the things is something that might affect a business traveler's opinion about staying here.
On our first night staying, our heater made a very loud sound like a gunshot as it kicked in and woke us up (around 2 AM), which was a bit of an inconvenience, but not really a huge deal as we fell back asleep quickly. The thing that might affect business travelers is that at least during our stay, the wi-fi was a bit sluggish at times. I can understand that this could be a big problem for business travelers who need to access the wi-fi for their work.
Otherwise, this hotel comes with high recommendations, and anytime we come back to the area, we will definitely keep considering this property (we have a little bit of a long-standing loyalty to the Comfort Suites that's hard to break, so if his price is ever around the same as this place we'll probably go back there). But by ni means is this a second-rate property. It definitely stands as first-rate all on its own.
