Having worked in the hospitality industry for several years, Lisa and I have grown accustomed to staying in quality hotels. As we left the brand we worked for, we have had opportunities to stay at different brands. As we travel, we have found some brands to be a bit better than others. Hampton Inn and Suites rate at the high end of our experiences.
We stayed at the Hampton Inn and Suites in Kenosha during a 2016 trip. The hotel had been opened for less than a year at the time, but you wouldn’t have known that by the quality of customer service the staff provided. From the front desk to housekeeping, everyone was on their game and did an outstanding job.
Our visit was in conjunction with a hosted visit by the Kenosha Visitors Bureau. But, based on ratings of the hotel by various online services, we are not alone in our positive thoughts.
The hotel itself is centrally located to Kenosha attractions. We were probably no more than a 15-minute drive from any attraction we visited. You jump on the main streets around the hotel and you can quickly be at the Mars Cheese Castle or downtown Kenosha.
The hotel offers a daily hot breakfast among its amenities. Other amenities include a nice fitness facility and indoor swimming pool.
The Hampton Inn and Suites has a small market room, where you can pick up personal items and snacks for the room.
Our room was excellent. It was actually a small suite. The sofa was comfy to relax on and watch a little TV as we wound down nightly from our busy days. Though we didn’t use it, the suite had a kitchen area, including a fridge and microwave.
I judge hotel stays based on the work space, as I upload and edit photos nightly. It’s important to have enough space for a laptop, camera and (preferably) plenty of outlets to charge camera batteries, phones and other electronics. The Kenosha Hampton Inn and Suites passed with flying colors. In fact, the desk even had enough space for a large screen TV for easy viewing.
The bed was comfortable and provided a great night’s sleep after some hectic and long days visiting the Kenosha area.
We are fans of security cards that you scan for entry to your room. Imagine how far we’ve come as a traveling society – from one-time skeleton keys to open doors to scanning a card for entry. Ah, the conveniences of life.
We enjoyed our stay at the Hampton Inn and Suites. We recommend staying at this hotel when traveling to Kenosha.
