Located on the banks of the Susquehanna River the three story Hampton Inn contains 66 rooms. The first floor level of the building is located four feet above grade to be above the flood plane. The half of the building width facing the river is raised on stilts to allow free flow of the flood waters while a high retaining wall supports the circular driveway under the porte-cochere. The lobby and breakfast area, meeting room, swimming pool, exercise room and laundry are all located on the first floor. Structurally the pool is suspended from the framing at the first floor level and thus will have no impact due to flooding.
