Took a weekend shopping trip with my daughter, and made reservations through tripadvisor on the way. As far as the hotel, it was all you are used to expecting in a Hampton Inn. Clean, comfortable, and convenient. My daughter said her sleeping was interrupted by children running up & down the halls, knocking on different doors. I was exhausted from shopping in Richmond all day, so didn't hear the same.
This particular location is about 4-5 minutes from Potomac Mills. There was still a good amount of ice on the roads, and the temperature dropped to below freezing, making driving difficult and dangerous. The hotel is kind of on a hill, near a winding road. But, we didn't have any issues making it back to the hotel after staying out late shopping
I'm already planning my next trip, and would definitely stay at this location again. Very nice with attentive staff. The outlets/ IKEA is outstanding. More
