“Love the Smell of a New (Accessible) Hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

This is a brand spanking new Hampton Inn. Just opened in November 2012, it boasts modern styling, spacious rooms, and a top-notch hotel staff.

The location is perfectly quiet. Although it's near Interstate 95, traffic noise is imperceptible. There's plenty of on-site parking and twice as many accessible spaces as an average hotel.

Lots of room in the lobby/lounge space where breakfast is served. It even has a huge big screen TV, perfect for catching ESPN Top 10! There's even a meeting where private parties can be held.

Our accessible room was exceptionally comfortable. The bathroom had a large roll in shower with a comfortable fold down seat attached to the wall. Loved the synthetic tiling on the floor. Not slippery at all!

Highly recommend!

Room Tip: If you're in a wheelchair, request and accessible room on the second floor. Plenty of space and...

This is by far the nicest Hampton I have been in . They have done a great job with this property.
The decor is like you are in a boutique hotel in new york. The location is great if you need to get anywhere in Columbia.

My wife and I stayed at this recently opened Hampton Inn over Christmas week, 2012. This hotel excels in every category. The staff was friendly and helpful, the breakfast was good, and the hotel provides a very upscale feeling for a three star hotel. My only quibble about the room is that the fan unit for the room heating and cooling system is not far from the foot of the bed, and we had to put up a chair to block the fan from causing an uncomfortable draft. The same room layout and draft problem happened in a recently built Hampton Inn at the Indianapolis airport location. We look forward to our next stay at this Hampton.

We just enjoyed a Thanksgiving weekend stay @ Hampton Inn , Minstrel Way, Columbia, MD for an annual Silver Sticks Youth Ice Hockey tournament. The property is BRAND NEW & exceptional in every way !!! The decor is beautiful, the rooms immaculate, the pool is large enough to accommodate lots of frolicking kids & the workout room is outstanding!!

The best part of our stay however was the Hampton Inn STAFF!!

Curtis & Nick welcomed our 50++ teenage boys/girls & families with enthusiasm & warmth!! Our Travel Hockey teams have often been treated with trepidation & recriminations right at check-in (which is understandable in light of the behavior of some youth sports teams). This staff treated our players like the NHL'ers they all wish they were!!! Cory, manager, set the tone for his entire team as they attended to every request/need. The staff over-seeing breakfast was on alert for restocking each item, assuring the cleanliness of the entire area, & accommodating all their guests!!

I truly cannot offer enough words of commendation for our stay here!! Our Greensboro Stars Travel Hockey team hopes to make this Hampton Inn our permanent host hotel for future tournaments in the DC/MD area!!!!

Room Tip: The sunset on the back of the building was glorious !!!!!!!
