Hampton Inn Gadsden

This Hampton Inn is located just a mile from downtown Gadsden and is also located close to the mall.

It is just like any other Hampton Inn with the same amenities and the same continental breakfast but aren't those miles and points wonderful.

The Alabama Princess Riverboat offers a variety of cruises on the Coosa River to give folks an opportunity to experience what it was like 'Riverboatin' on the Coosa' in the 19th century.

The riverboat is an exact replica of one of the boats that carried passengers and cargo up and down the Coosa.
