We planned a trip to Hampton last minute to visit a family member right before Christmas. We actually booked the hotel on our way to Hampton. In the area, the hotel price ranges were $100+ a night, and in Hampton, that is a very bad deal!
I called Crowne Plaza about 4 hours before our arrival and they said they were having a special, $85 for two nights, with breakfast. Can we say amazing deal??? When we arrived, noticed that the hotel sat on the marina in town next to the Air & Space Center. Walked into the lobby and was just amazed at how nice it was. The occurring theme throughout the hotel is nautical. I just loved it, everything was very nice. Would be a great venue for a wedding or party!
At check in we were met by a very friendly hotel attendant, gave us our keys and sent us on our way. We found out that we were upgraded to the largest suite they have overlooking the main street and the marina..it was amazing and huge! The linens were plush, not to mention the bed was a sleep number. On the bed they had left us a night mask and linen spray. It was like Christmas, I have never stayed in such a nice room...especially for $85 for two nights!!
The next morning we found out that they were not doing the continental breakfast due to the low numbers, but instead we ordered off menus. The food was amazing, and would have cost us about $30.
The morning we left, we were in a rush, so I called down to see if we could get our breakfast to go. When I went to pick it up the gals was super nice, she had gone above and beyond her job to package our breakfast up, she even buttered the toast for us. I believe her name was Deborah.
If you are looking for a beautiful hotel, in a great location, with great staff and food...the Crowne Plaza is your pick. I had never stayed at a Crowne Plaza before, but now I look for them every where I go!!
