This was a nice experience in a handsome classic mansion. We will definitely plan to stay here on our next trip to the Lexington VA area and have told others about our experience at this Hampton Inn facility.

Nice quaint hotel close to downtown Lexington. Rooms are spacious an nice. Breakfast is good and served in a cozy room. The whole hotel has kept its feeling of a old colonial house but still modern with good technological features.

A great gem of a hotel! We would definitely stay here again. Not your average Hsmpton Inn. Beautiful grounds, within walks distance to town. Helpful staff, and winderful rooms. We come to Lexington often, and thus is now our #1 spot!

Interesting Hampton Inn: An historical manor house with authentic rooms and a modern hotel situated on a beautiful site. No problems at all. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The town center with many shops and some dining is one half mile down the hill.

The old mansion where you have breakfast is very nice. Rooms are the regular modern type. Comfortable bed and sitting room area was pleasant for having take out dinner. Walking to breakfast, which is partially outside, might be a problem in winter months.

When we saw Hampton Inn on the highway sign, we had no idea what awaited us. The Col Alto property is charming & peaceful. Pulling up & seeing the Horse Carriage Parking sign blew us away to begin with. It was late in the evening, the girls that registered us were friendly & helpful. There were also chocolate chip cookies... More

Enjoyed staying at the Col Alto property for the second time. A peaceful location in the lovely town of Lexington. We are going to make it a regular stop in future road trips on our way south. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They recommended a downtown hotel in Lexington where we enjoyed a sunset dinner on a balcony... More

Great place to stay that meets all expectations. This is the second time I have stayed here separated by 12 years and both times a fantastic experience. Staff is friendly, rooms spacious and CLEAN and the breakfast is AWESOME. Best selection I have seen at any comparable hotel chain. Walking distance to downtown Lexington and plenty of great dinner spots... More

Super clean, friendly professional staff!! Definitely a go to destination when we are back in the area. 20min to Safari Park. Location is perfect, close to the interstate and historic downtown Lexington/VMI. Truly top notch Hampton Inn & Suites property. A step or two above the rest.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In June of 1997 the tradition of Col Alto was reborn as it opened its doors once again to welcome visitors to the City of Lexington. Step onto the beautiful grounds of the Hampton Inn Lexington-Historic District hotel and be mesmerized. You'll find our breathtaking historic manor house-the Col Alto Mansion-nestled on seven acres. Stay in one of the 76 rooms featuring contemporary touches or one of the 10 restored manor rooms offering a glimpse into the past. Take a short walk and you'll discover Washington and Lee University. While there, be sure to see the historic landmark Lee Chapel and Museum. Pay respects at the cemetery named for 'Stonewall' Jackson, a Confederate general during the Civil War. Visit Virginia Military Institute, one of six senior military colleges in the United States. Hungry or in need of some retail therapy? Take a stroll down to Main Street to find lots of wonderful, locally-owned restaurants and unique shops. Or if you prefer, take a scenic drive down the road and you'll discover the beauty of nature at Natural Bridge, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Enjoy your stay in our Historic Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, VMI or the Washington and Lee Rooms featuring period décor within the Manor House with wine and hors d'oeuvres served upon arrival, breakfast served in-room, evening turndown service, and terrycloth robes or relax in our contemporary guest rooms and accessible rooms featuring a refrigerator and microwave. All rooms feature a 37-inch LCD HDTV with cable channels, lap desk and free Wi-Fi, and many rooms offer a wet or dry bar. Enjoy complementary hot breakfast in the manor house overlooking the grounds or perhaps a dip in the outdoor pool or whirlpool spa on a beautiful day. Get lost in time when you stay at the Historic Hampton Inn Col Alto. Located 8 miles off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Within walking distance to Historic Downtown Lexington, Washington & Lee University, Virginia Military Institute and minutes from Natural Bridge, Goshen Pass and McCormick Farm. ... more   less
