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.

Very nice! We travel a great deal and this was a refreshing change! We will be back to enjoy this property. Property was well cared for. The staff was very gracious. Breakfast staff was excellent but the food offered was the only disappointment.

The lobby is a beautiful historic property but the rooms have all modern conveniences. Fitness center is small but adequate for 1 or 2 people at a time. Breakfast was the typical Hampton breakfast-good variety and friendly staff on hand. Only down side to the whole

I agree, start at the Center. They are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I think they would enjoy the Jackson house which is quite close to the VC. If they are boys, they would likely enjoy the museum at VIM as it has weapons. Don't forget the local chocolate shoppe!

Hello! There are refrigerators in every one of our 76 Hampton Rooms. If you book a "Historic" Manor House room, there are not refrigerators in those. Thank you, Jessica McCullough
