I always like to stay at Hilton properties when I travel. If a town doesn????????t have one, it makes for a long night (in my book.) While in Richland, I stayed at the Hampton Inn Richland/Tri Cities. The Hampton Inns are usually clean and service is what you would expect. However, I was pleasantly surprised with this visit.
This Hampton Inn may be the nicest that I have ever stayed at. It is located along the Columbia River with a pathway for a leisurely walk. Every room had a balcony with a view. And to welcome you in the lobby, there was a wonderful sitting area with a large fireplace. Winter evenings in Washington State can be fairly cool.
Within walking distance, there were also two excellent restaurants. Service was prompt and friendly which made the stay comfortable.
Everything seemed to be a step up from other Hampton Inns from the gift shop to the hotel gym, I was glad that I stayed for a couple of days.
The Hampton Inn Richland is located at 486 Bradley Boulevard, Richland, Washington, (509) 943-4400. ( www.hamptoninns.com)
