I just love this place. To me, it felt luxurious. Examples? Clean, clean, clean. Real down pillows. Real down comforter. Beautiful expensive looking duvet and here's the kicker. They wash the whole thing, every time according to a little note to that effect. It looked fresh, and when I questioned housekeeping specifically, they said yep -- that duvet is washed fresh for every guest. Oh, my - such a comfortable bed, too. A dream of a bed. The bathroom was sparkling. I noticed that immediately. The room was large -- large enough to accommodate our king bed, bed tables on each side, a queen size sofa fold out, a desk and office chair -- without feeling cramped. The bathroom was also unusually large with a separate sink area. There was a fridge and microwave and the television had a really, really sharp picture. There is a balcony with a table and two chairs. We had a riverside room and felt perched right over the Columbia River with views to the far distant side. This property is right on the Howard Amon Park and a walking path stretches for miles in each direction. This feels like such a luxurious, park side location among the trees, privacy, water views, lovely large clean room. Wow! The lobby is nice with couches and fireplace to sit and read. An adjoining area has coffee and tea -- lots of varieties, and always filled, and in the evening, a cookie jar with fresh homemade cookies. Breakfast is included and involves several hot dishes: sausage patties, egg omelets, oatmeal (with brown sugar, raisins and sliced almonds on the side), as well as fresh fruit, cereals (the healthy ones), yogurt, pastries, and items to toast. Best of all, you can carry it out to the tables on the lovely patio right outside the dining area. The dining area has an atrium roof and feels full of light and air, with views of the river and park. There is a pool and hot tub, neither of which I had time to use, but I did go in and check to find that the water was clean and the hot tub was really hot. Plenty of fresh towels were neatly stacked on tables by the pool lounges. Again, atrium ceiling and glass walls. Housekeeping allowed me to check out the "mini-suite" -- it is larger and arranged on a bias -- that is, it is a corner room with the point "cut off" to make a large and interesting space. There was a mini bar sink along with the fridge and microwave. Couch and tables as in the king unit, but, be advised, the mini-suites do not have balconies. For me, one of the pleasures of this visit, was sitting out above the patio and enjoying the evening breezes, the morning sunshine, the trees and grass in the park. Richland is a terrific little city anyway, with it's warm and sunny weather, river proximity and long views, so a stay at this Hampton Inn from time to time is way up there on my must do list each spring or fall. The check in deserves a quick mention for the warm and efficient handling by Brandon Burdett and the subsequent phone call to our room to check if everything was to our satisfaction. Yes, Brandon, it sure was!
