My daughter (a paraplegic) and I stayed here for 3 nights in a wheelchair accessible room with roll in shower. Bathroom very big and room very easy to maneuver. Appreiciated having the fridge in the room since she needs to keep some medication cold. Had a microwave as well, but did not use it. I did find it odd and not very ideal (or sanitary) to have the coffee maker with its coffee & condiments on one side of the bathroom vanity sink and the ice bucket with cups on the other side. This left little to no room for what you really needed on the vanity. Perhaps putting these on the large desk area in the room makes much more sense, to me at least. Maybe this setup is just in this type or room...not sure.
The handheld shower handle was good placement to the side close to the pull down shower bench, but the faucet cannot be reached from the bench by someone who can't get up to reach it on the opposite end.
The breakfast is always a welcomed perk, but I didn't find the perfectly shaped (frozen?) egg omelets good at all. Everything else was great.
As far as the price of the stay, I thought it was high even for AARP. Why so much higher on a Monday night? Stayed 3 nights and each night was a different rate. Nearly $500 for 3 nights (Aug 2, 3 & 4). We stayed here because of the accessiblilty of the room and only 1 other lower class hotel choice in this same Enfield area that we wanted to be; and because of being familar with Hampton Inns decided on this one. It's a very nice place. Did not use any of the facilities other than the business area for boarding passes.
For a wheelchair accessible room, the door to the room is extremely heavy...almost impossible for that solo person in a wheelchair to enter without help.
Overall, everything was really quite nice, but my suggestion to hotels building new accessible rooms is to think of the people who are wheelchair bound and can't walk at all versus those who are somewhat mobile. Those wheelchair bound may not be the majority but they are the ones in most need of having the most/best room accessibility.
Also, one glitch was with the side entrance...key card would not work..desk clerk said it sometimes has to do with the cooler weather. Really??
