“Charm!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

This is a charming hotel. You can stay in the old, original home (for a higher room rate), or in the newer portion of the hotel, which has lovely rooms as well. I had stayed in another Lexington hotel the night before and switched to the Hampton Inn for a change, and immediately noticed the obvious cleanliness and newness of the rooms and baths. Really comfortable in every way. I had access through a side door and was able to come and go without going through the front entrance - very convenient. The breakfast room was a short walk under an outdoor covered walkway which connects the old to the new building and protects from rain, etc. Very nice - I saw a lovely pool area, not yet open for the season. This hotel is by far the closest to the Washington and Lee, and VMI campuses, and right down the street from the downtown area. Very convenient! Also fills up first when there are events at the schools so book early!

Room Tip: If you want quaint and historic, book in the older portion of the manor. These rooms are a little m...

We visited Lexington for one of our children to look at a prospective college there. Booking through Hilton Honors I found this hotel located in walking distance to town and not far from where our tour would begin. Upon arrival, I knew we were onto something special. The grounds are manicured to perfection. The welcome was warm and happy. I was treated as if they had been waiting just for me. Information about the town, food options, etc. was great as were individual descriptions of different restaurants. The room was immaculate, as were the hallways, parking lots and public areas. Breakfast the next morning was beyond the normal Hampton free offering, and was served in the historic home that is also the lobby. Plenty of friendly staff asking if everything was OK or if we wanted more of something. This hotel is about 2 miles off Interstate 81, but we heard no auto noise at all. If we have the opportunity we will return again and again! Thank you for showing what hospitality is all about!

Room Tip: Can't see that there is a bad room in the place!

The Hampton Inn in Lexington, VA is a fantastic place to stay. Character that you have to see for your self. Downtown is within walking distance. Friendly staff and the summer night on the porch are amazing.

This hotel was a delightful find on the 64 corridor. After a long drive, it provided an elegant retreat in an absolutely sublime setting. Room was large, quiet, clean & in working order. Good restaurants are nearby & Lexington is a must see authentic, antique town. Wonderful experience!

This is a very unique Hampton Inn, centered around an historic home. The service and accommodations are typical for Hampton Inn. Here, however, you have a beautiful historic home as part of the Inn. Very convenient to the Lexington downtown.

The Lexington Col Alto is a wonderful and tasteful blend of modern accomodation with a Historical landmark - which is greatly appreciated. In an age where good manners and respect for customers is nearly lost in a culture where disrespect and ridiculous behavior are seemingly an endorsed norm - IT WAS GREAT to stay at a place where all the employees were kind and engaging during the execution of their tasks. regards, David E. Bryan

Thank you for such a wonderful review! I agree with you. Sometimes it seems people forget the "Golden Rule"; "treat others as you would have them treat you". I love that we are a family owned and operated business and that we strive to treat our staff and guests to a family atmosphere of mutual respect.

Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again real soon!

Sincerely,

The grounds and lobby area were beautiful. Room was clean and we had no issues. Would definitely recommend this hotel to others and would stay here again. We visited VMI and Boxerwood Gardens while in town.
