I was blown away by this hotel. I stayed there for the night so my wife and kids and I could see the lights at Oglebay. I used HHonor points and expected this to be a typical Hampton... a nice and clean hotel, but nothing really special. I was very surprised and have already made plans to go back for a weekend with friends and their kids. The rooms were typical, but perhaps a bit bigger, the staff was over the top helpful - even offering us hockey tickets to a game that night. While the hotel is not as refined as a Conrad, the drive is there...
What made this hotel so great, and really a destination is the pool area. The pool has all sorts of great 'things' for kids from a rain "shower" coming from ceiling to water spouts, and on and on. It has a swim spa built in to the main pool, a hot tub, steam roomS. During the summer there is also an outdoor water area for the kids.
This is wheeling, so it is not a huge destination, but if you are within a couple hours of it, it is a great weekend with the kids. Good family restaraunts nearby, Cabellas - which is fun whether you are a hunter/outdoorsman or not just to see all animals, and of course Oglebay and its golf courses.
As you can tell, i was blown away by the quality of this Hampton and their attention to detail and customer services.
There are two Hamptons in Wheeling, make sure you get the right one... this is close to Oglebay and Cabellas.
