An old college friend and I met up in Lexington to catch up (being busy with work and families we rarely get to do that these days). The hotel was perfect! I felt it was a little pricey for a Hampton Inn, but it was worth it. It's in a great location - easy to walk to downtown shops and restaurants, and is very charming. We stayed in one of the non-historic double queen rooms with a balcony. The room was average size with a little fridge and really cute little balcony that over looked the courtyard and pool. The grounds are beautiful, and the hotel was modern and clean. The staff was really friendly and helpful, and the complementary breakfast was better than average. We sat out on the patio and enjoyed it on the morning we checked out. No complaints at all, in fact, I highly recommend!
