Most of what I experienced has already been written about in other reviews, but I'll add my perspective as a counselor on a youth group trip. When we arrived, the staff had all of our keys organized according to the pre-sent rooming lists, and they had made a huge batch of chocolate chocolate chip and peanut butter fudge cookies along with a tankard of lemonade for our kids. Since it was raining, we didn't take advantage of the small, but usable pool. Our kids are great to begin with, but the room soundproofing in this hotel is above average and the air conditioners are quiet.
Breakfast is handled by "the Three Sisters:" three "seasoned" women who remind me of the hostesses that Grandy's used to employ... asking if we found everything okay and if we needed anything else.
A couple of room notes - ours was outfitted with both microwave and mid-sized mini-fridge. The furniture in the room and most of the bathroom fixtures look like they've been redone sometime post 2000. The iron and board are stored in the free-standing wardrobe - something that eats a hair at room space, but will be flexible for the hotel in future remodels. The shower curtain is on one of the new "bowed out" curtain rods, preventing the claustrophobic shower experience.
The Hampton Inn of today has taken the convenience category of hotel to a new level with its e.e. cummings-inspired branding of everything from "juice." to "shampoo." to the "smile." sign in the elevator. They've managed to provide a taste of the high-end Hilton experience in their everyday properties. This hotel in Abingdon exceeds expectations in every category and deserves the five-dot ratings all around.
