When we saw this Hampton Inn we just couldn't believe it. It's constructed in keeping with the historical nature of Lexington. But then we heard the price and we were thrilled! It less than most hotels of its type....way less. The grounds are fantastic, with pool, jacuzzi, workout room and beautiful common rooms for breakfast--all decorated in historic style. The...

The staff was pure "southern charm". Registration and breakfast are located in a nicely restored manor house. Rooms are located in adjacent buildings. Rooms were clean and comfortable. We were located on the first floor and were surprised how quite it was. Buffet breakfast was typical Hampton Inn. It was "edible."

I took my 3 children (11, 9, 7) to the Lexington Hampton Inn this week. We had a lovely stay at the Col Alto Hampton Inn. It's a renovated southern mansion, located on a main thoroughfare through Lexington (East Nelson), but set back from the street to provide a very quiet atmosphere. The registration, lobby and eating areas are in...

This Hampton Inn is located in historic building in a beautiful setting in Lexington Va. It is located in the old section of town and is in easy walking distance to VMI, Washington & Lee, the Jackson sites and the old downtown area with restaurants and shops. We had a very comfortable stay.

We stayed here for one night to visit VMI. I had high hopes as I love all things historic, as the hotel bills itself. The exterior is just that; it's lovely on the outside and has the facade of a historic building. However, the interior rooms are simply outdated. Fixtures are old. The electrical outlets were so old that they...

Visited my son at W&L for Easter. Great location but my room was next to elevator, across from fitness center, and next to door toward lobby so very noisy and the room floor was all sticky and discusting in the carpet.

We loved our stay at this hotel. It is beautiful and historical. The staff was friendly and anxious to help us. We needed a roll-away later in the evening and it was brought to us very quickly. Will definitely stay here again when in town!

Made advanced reservations and prepaid room rate. Day after I checked out, I noticed that I had 2 additional pending charges for the hotel room rate. Apparently the hotel charged me the room rate at check-in and at check-out even though I had paid for the room when I made the reservation. Called the hotel to speak with someone twice...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In June of 1997 the tradition of Col Alto was reborn as it opened its doors once again to welcome visitors to the City of Lexington. Step onto the beautiful grounds of the Hampton Inn Lexington-Historic District hotel and be mesmerized. You'll find our breathtaking historic manor house-the Col Alto Mansion-nestled on seven acres. Stay in one of the 76 rooms featuring contemporary touches or one of the 10 restored manor rooms offering a glimpse into the past. Take a short walk and you'll discover Washington and Lee University. While there, be sure to see the historic landmark Lee Chapel and Museum. Pay respects at the cemetery named for 'Stonewall' Jackson, a Confederate general during the Civil War. Visit Virginia Military Institute, one of six senior military colleges in the United States. Hungry or in need of some retail therapy? Take a stroll down to Main Street to find lots of wonderful, locally-owned restaurants and unique shops. Or if you prefer, take a scenic drive down the road and you'll discover the beauty of nature at Natural Bridge, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Enjoy your stay in our Historic Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, VMI or the Washington and Lee Rooms featuring period décor within the Manor House with wine and hors d'oeuvres served upon arrival, breakfast served in-room, evening turndown service, and terrycloth robes or relax in our contemporary guest rooms and accessible rooms featuring a refrigerator and microwave. All rooms feature a 37-inch LCD HDTV with cable channels, lap desk and free Wi-Fi, and many rooms offer a wet or dry bar. Enjoy complementary hot breakfast in the manor house overlooking the grounds or perhaps a dip in the outdoor pool or whirlpool spa on a beautiful day. Get lost in time when you stay at the Historic Hampton Inn Col Alto. Located 8 miles off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Within walking distance to Historic Downtown Lexington, Washington & Lee University, Virginia Military Institute and minutes from Natural Bridge, Goshen Pass and McCormick Farm. ... more   less
