Came up here for a week-end swim meet with our 9-year-old, and we'll be back. Quiet (despite most of the swim team staying here), a very comfortable room, and extremely practical.
The best thing about this hotel, as far as the team was concerned, was not the nice, warm pool, but the large lobby/breakfast area, which served as an informal meeting area/dining area and rumpus room. It was large, comfortable and perfect for just hanging out.
Also good, from our point of view, was the hot breakfast. We had to be at the meet at 6:15 am (!), and the breakfast started, supposedly, at 6:00 am, so we thought it would be a tight scrape. But the management was practical and customer-friendly, and the food was out and ready before 6:00 am.
The objections? Well, it's a Hampton Inn, not one of the more upscale brands in the Hilton lineup. So the in-room coffee was pretty thin, the fittings not quite sumptuous, etc., etc. It was a cold day in June, and we could NOT manage the heat properly, so I woke up in the middle of the night dreaming of global warning, I kid you not. But it's a minor complaint; you know the drill already if you do a lot of chain hotels.
All in all, though, a pretty good experience at a fair price. This is apparently the default hotel for our Boston-based swim club, and I can see why.
