This Hampton Inn is located in Glen Allen, Virginia, a nice suburb of Richmond. The location worked out very well for us in visiting the historical sites of the Virginia capitol and the outlying region. Traffic was not bad at all and we had the benefit of being near a large mall with the typical secondary strip malls. A supermarket named Ukrops was basically across the street. Although the lobby, breakfast area, and our room were quite attractive, the hotel appears to be having some extensive expansion work done and the swimming pool is currently closed. The property does face the back of one of the strip malls. Our room had a microwave and small refrigerator. This proved to be very useful when we ate one evening at the nearby Texas Roadhouse. The portions were so large that we both took some back to the room. The next evening we bought some items at Ukrops to go with the leftovers and had a great in-room meal. The standard lodging rates appeared somewhat high but we took advantage of the "On to Richmond" 150th Civil War Package. It included a two night stay at a reduced room rate, a packet of information about the area's War Between the States sites, two free admissions to the Museum and White House of the Confederacy, and a coupon for a complimentary item from the museum's gift shop. That museum offers free parking but be sure to visit their web site for directions [www.moc.org]. It proved to be the highlight of our vacation. Don't miss it! If you enjoy historical sites, be sure to swing by the JEB Stuart Monument in Glen Allen. It is close to the hotel, but some of the street signs were difficult to see, especially for those unfamiliar with the surrounding residential areas. Probably would be best to get directions from the front desk. Overall, an enjoyable stay.
