We are normally Hampton snobs - but we had to book this trip partially on expiring travel points - and I'm happy to say that this hotel surpassed them. This new hotel just felt luxurious. Beautifully decorated, big room with sitting/work area - even in our 2 Q room. Big bathroom. Comfy beds with nice linens. I can not tell you the thrill I felt when I smelled FABRIC SOFTENER and found that the sheets and towels were so soft and so nice smelling! (I have resigned myself to the fact that most linens get rinsed out in hot water because the 2% of the population who have allergies can't simply ask for special arrangements so ALL of us have to sleep in sheets that smell like B.O.!) My husband - an insomniac - even slept pretty well! A small but very pleasant indoor pool gave us a chance to soak away the 7 hour drive (towels are over in the fitness room.) The flat screen TV was visible all over the room. My husband was able to connect to the free wifi in no time- but we also noted that if we had needed to print anything, there were two computers right in the lobby. The frig (no freezer -which is usually useless on mini-frig's anyway) had plenty of room for all the picnic groceries we had brought for the following day. The hot breakfast was limited but very yummy and even though we guests stampeded it like pigs to a trough, the staff kept up the replenishments at a reasonable pace! The location is 9 miles northeast of Greensboro straight up 220 or I-85 and was very convenient for the multiple trips we made for the GGHS reunion. A shopping center and several restaurants on the exit makes errands and muchie trips easy. I was also childishly delighted to find cherry Klondike bars available at the concierge center (for only a marginally inflated price) and availed myself of the free coffee in the lobby, too. The only catch: They have those "green" AC units that apparently save energy by hesitating to turn on and by being off as much as possible, allowing your room to hit 80 or more, if you're not careful (i.e. if you set it to "Auto Cool.") The night desk clerk we called said, "They're all like that. I didn't buy them." (?!?) We changed rooms, and found that he was rude and unhelpful, but he was right. However, the weekend clerk - whose friendly attitude was more in keeping with the rest of the staff - told us the trick was to switch to heat for just a second, THEN turn to cool/high or low - but not auto. We did so and it ran like a champ. This hotel is head and shoulders above any of its class that we've ever used - especially other Comfort Inns/Suites. If this is the direction Choice Hotels is going in the future, I'll be firing up my membership card more often.
