I visited the Hampton Inn during the pandemic. The lobby was unavailable but beautiful. There were very few guests so it seemed like my fiance and I had the whole place to ourselves. We didn't use the gym or pool, and we missed breakfast, but the front desk staff was incredibly helpful and patient.
