When in Raleigh I generally stay at either the Hampton Inn or Courtyard both of which are on Wake Towne Drive in North Raleigh, a convenient but not a visible location. This past weekend it was the hampton's turn. This place has some time on it but is generally being kept up to Hampton's standards. I have two complaints that I think are really more chain mandated problems and not individual property problems. The current linen package at the last two Hampton Inns I have stayed at would have been fine in 1980 but are really passe today. The comforter is not incased in a sepaarate sheet and the overall quality and thread count of the linens is not up to the competition. The same crummy non workable water squeezing showerhead was in both facilities and once again, it is just not up to standards. Management personnel were great and noticeably much better than say three years agao at this same facility--so I think a change in mangement or ownership might have occurred and that was a good thing. Come on ownership, ignore the chain minimum standards and kick it up a notch.
