I agree bringing a spouse does change things....that is why I dont travel with my spouse and she doesnt travel with me! If she doenst want to be on a cruise ship from San Diego to Ft Lauderdale, there is no point in dragging her along kicking and screaming. I certainly dont want to go to Switzerland for Agility Worlds to see my galpal get her butt kicked by the Europeans.....but I understand those couples who need to be together and that's fine.I would not say there is anything wrong with Hampton or any of the ones in the area. But i would label them more a hotel than a resort and different people have different priorities. I suspect most on GS are like you and i that want to spend almost all our time at the area and be close and easy. But others may have other ideas. Some may want to use this more as a vacation than just a skating trip. Others may have a spouse who want to spend less time at the area and may need to WFH at the hotel. In my case long ago promised the other half he will never have to be sober for a figure skating event, so yeah i am staying closer.
I would say this is a more of a "Im willing to settle for less than the Broadmore for half the price!" alterative than an alternative to walking distance. Still, an option that i rather enjoyed and that i just don't see as being well known so i thought i would bring up in case it work for anyone. I also noticed they seem to have a lot of accessibility showers in rooms, which could be something that is a factor to some people.
