First impressions count, from the lovely historic house that houses reception to the tree-lined drive with easy parking near rooms. The room layout was especially nice, with lots of little conveniences (plenty of plugs for devices, places to lay down your things, Neutrogena products in the bathroom, good cable channels, decent free wifi, a sink in the mini-kitchen area). We...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We've stayed at this hotel numerous times because of its excellent quality. Granted, we're always just passing through and don't spend much time in the room, but we always meet nice people working there and get a good night's sleep. There is a short walk to some very good restaurants and bars, and the breakfasts at the hotel are usually...

Beautiful hotel, immaculate building and grounds, so full of history! Guest services were great, staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome! Right by historic district of Lexington. Buffet breakfast was delish! Would absolutely stay here again!

Room was clean, fitness center, though small, was well-equipped and had a working TV, and front desk staff was polite. Just a few-minutes' walk to the downtown scene. Fresh cookies upon check-in, and front desk helped us identify a dinner spot.

I've stayed in Lexington many times and always forgot to check on the Hampton Inn. What was wrong with me. This hotel far passes all the others in town. I usually have to carry Lysol and cleaners to use before unpacking. This hotel was spotless and the staff was excellent.

Very nice, clean and charming hotel that's close to everything. My wife, son and I have stayed here multiple times and always enjoy the experience. There are multiple hotel options in Lexington, VA, and we prefer this hotel over all of the others.

I loved the historical character of this location and the beautiful setting. Perfect location for easy access to both the downtown area and shopping. The beds in my room weren't the most comfortable, but the facilities were nice.

Spent an overnight at Hampton Inn - Historic Lexington. We always stay at Hampton Inns because of their continued quality service and accommodations and their unbeatable hot breakfast. This place is probably the nicest we've ever stayed at. The historic setting and walking distance to downtown historic Lexington was great.

This is my second stay here. Unfortunately, I never stay for long, as it is a convenient place to stop on our drive down south. I so appreciate the careful restoration of the Manor House while also providing modern and comfortable accommodations. I am at this moment sitting on the porch of the preserved log cabin (used as a meeting...

This location allowed us to walk to/from Main Street attractions, for dinner and the birthday celebration after. Not having to worry about a car was the reason for staying here. Plenty of room for the two of us. The standards of Hilton are well kept here.

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
