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.

This is a beautiful hotel with a rich history. The mansion was stunning and I felt the history around me. The staff is friendly and courteous. The rooms are clean and the complimentary breakfast was a nice touch.

We always stay one night in Lexington on our way to FL each year. Our usual place had gone downhill in the past couple of years. Since we trust Hampton, we searched for one relatively close to the highway. Luckily we found this lovely hotel. Everything was great from the moment

I stay at Hampton Inns regularly, coast to coast (mainly for business), and has to be the most unique - and possibly the best - one I've been to. The setting is an old historical mansion, which looks nothing like a standard Hampton Inn from the outside. The rooms are updated and

Definitely a nice place to stay when you're tired from eating all the slices over at Frank's. Waddle on down after you've stuffed yourself with large pies and cold brews. I slept like a baby on my king-sized bed! Would do again.

I agree, start at the Center. They are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I think they would enjoy the Jackson house which is quite close to the VC. If they are boys, they would likely enjoy the museum at VIM as it has weapons. Don't forget the local chocolate shoppe!
