Out of the Ordinary Hampton Inn
Posted Nov 12, 2012
We selected this hotel after a spur of the moment decision to go to Lexington for a weekend getaway. We had no desire to stay out on the highway, and no time to research bed and breakfasts. Since its location is close to downtown we selected this one. Beautiful restoration and renovation of a historic mansion, with the check-in area, lobby, and breakfast area in the historic home itself, and the modern hotel rooms in a wing constructed to match the original historic home. The hotel is located about 6 blocks to the charming downtown area and historic sites such as Stonewall Jackson house; it's a nice walk. From downtown, you can explore the historic campuses of Washington & Lee University and Virginia Military Institute. The staff is courteous, rooms are modern and clean, a bit above the ordinary. The grounds are beautiful, and as you stroll through the hotel, you have the feeling you're staying at a bed and breakfast instead of a standard hotel.
