My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel while looking to relocate for his employment. As a Hilton Honors member I always try to stay in a Hampton Inn. This hotel has impeccable customer service. I was sent an email a few days prior to arrival welcoming us to the area and it contained all of the contact information... More

The main building and grounds were unlike any Hampton we've ever been in. Our room was very clean and had a balcony with a view of the pool. Room was quiet and bed comfortable. Continental breakfast was very good!

Excellent hotel with staff that goes above and beyond. They even left a gift in the room to congratulate us on our anniversary. Our room had a balcony overlooking the garden/pool area, which was great for unwinding after a long day of sightseeing. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Lexington.

We stopped in Lexington to break up a long road trip. We knew it was a pretty, Southern town with restaurants, shops, and history. We decided to stay at the Hampton Inn because we always have good luck with that chain, but the charm of this hotel was astounding! The registration desk and breakfast area are in (what was once)...

So after reading many of the reviews, I guess I had my expectations too high... Upon arriving, we noticed the grounds to be pretty and the main building was very lovely, but it stopped there. I had requested a quiet room upon making our reservations, but we were put in a room that overlooked the pool. It reminded me more... More

I stayed here overnight recently while in town for work and was very impressed. I stayed with a co-worker in a room with 2 queen beds and it was very spacious with more than enough room for both of us. The bathrooms were nicely updated. The small fridge and microwave in the room was great! It was all extremely clean.... More

This is a beautiful hotel with a friendly staff and a great location to downtown Lexington. My daughter and I truly enjoyed our stay. I am not giving the full excellent rating because I felt the bathroom could have been a little cleaner where the tile and grout were. Additionally, the air conditioner was a little weird and kept cutting... More

It was the 4th of July weekend wedding of Victoria's brother to be held at the chapel of Washington and Lee University. The brides family set up a block of rooms for the many out of town guests, they chose a wonderful hotel. Communication with this fine establishment was simply perfect, check-in easy.

This hotel was surprising in Lexington and totally consistent with the historic nature of the city. If you want to stay in a chain hotel and want the ambience of a bed and breakfast, then this is for you. Not right in downtown but very convenient and in a park like setting. Be sure to try it in Lexington

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
