I first went to the Hampton and found them to be way over priced for the market that they are in. I drove by the Crowne Plaza on the way to the Hampton, it the Crowne Plaza was so large and I know Crowne Plaza's to be many steps above business economy hotels like the Hampton. The Hampton was 159.00 which is above what my Company will pay. For kicks and giggles after I left the Hampton I drove to the Crowne Plaza to see what their rate was. They were 2/3 the price of the Hampton and their free breakfast was light years above anything the Hampton offers. When I checked in Allen was very helpful in telling me all the aminities that the hotel offered. He was so helpful that I would feel guilty if I ate anywhere other than the hotel. I enjoyed my dinner very much as well as the on site bar. This Hotel is by far the best deal in the Hickory area. Ask for Allen, tell him Ray sent you. I am sure he won't remember me however I will remember where to stay every month when I come to Hickory on business. With Respect - Ray
