DOBSON — The Hampton Inn & Suites at Shelton Vineyards was recently recognized with a ranking of third among all Hampton Inn & Suites in Hilton Hotel Corp.
“This ranking recognizes the hotel for its loyalty and quality assurance,” the hotel said in a written statement.
The inn features seven Jacuzzi suites among its 102 rooms, a heated pool, modern gym and the chain’s only wine bar.
What began as a dream of brothers Ed and Charlie Shelton has become a reality. “We built this hotel and winery in the hopes of providing guests with a unique experience that keeps them coming back for more,” says Charlie Shelton, co-owner. “We are honored to have our complete commitment to total customer satisfaction recognized with this ranking of third in the world among Hampton Inn and Suites.”
The inn is “a short scenic bike ride, on a hotel-provided bicycle, or a quick shuttle trip,” the hotel said. “The hotel and winery exist seamlessly among the beautiful landscape, providing a complete experience without leaving the area.”
At the winery, guests get an inside tour of Shelton Vineyards giving an overview of how the wine is produced, with the tour culminating with a tasting of the fruits of winemaker Gill Giese’s labor in the Shelton tasting room.
Next door, among the grapevines, is the Harvest Grill, where guests can relax on the patio overlooking the kitchen garden while Chef Paul Lange crafts seasonal specialties made with a Southern twist.
