Where We Stayed: Hampton Inn BWI

My last hotel review from my Thanksgiving trip is below, finally!

We first stayed at this hotel back in 2009 during DC's big blizzard (I hope to tell that story in another post). Our experience there was positive--well, as much as one could expect given the circumstances. When we realized that we needed to stay near BWI for our recent Mexico trip, this was the first place we thought of. We checked ratings and rates at other nearby hotels, and this one gave us the best combination of features and parking for the price.

We stayed at the Hampton for 2 nights: 1 before our flight and 1 after. Each time we were in a different type of room. We had a room with 2 double beds the night before our flight. Upon our return, we had a room with a king bed and a pull-out sofa. Both were about the same size and had equally nice furnishings. However, things got a bit tricky once we pulled out the sofabed in the second room because then was no good place to put the ottoman that had been in front of the sofa. We ended up pushing the ottoman all the way down to the other end of the room, up against the door to the hallway.

I always worry about planes waking me up at airport hotels. Luckily, this was not an issue any of the nights we stayed at this Hampton Inn. Their shuttle to and from BWI was reliable as well. Another great thing about this hotel was that the staff was always gracious with us, even though my daughter was in full-tantrum mode both evenings we checked in.

Breakfast: Typical Hampton Inn complimentary breakfast with continental plus hot items.
Bathroom: shower-tub combination
Blow dryer: yes
Elevator: yes
Internet: free in-room wifi. We didn't have any problems with it.
Nearest playground: Not sure
Recommend for families with young kids: definitely, at least for a short stay.
Recommend for people without kids: definitely.
