Hampton Inn Times Square Central

Midtown, New York

Virgin rating

The hotel

With Manhattan’s all-singing, all-dancing Theater District literally on its doorstep, Hampton Inn Times Square Central is perfectly placed for bright lights and city sights. Shops, dining, shows, iconic buildings: it’s all on hand, with the two block stretch of eateries known as Restaurant Row just six minutes’ stroll away. If you’d rather eat back at base, the hotel’s convenience store has snacks, drinks and pre-packed meals. There’s no unnecessary fuss or frills here, but there are plenty of freebies: there’s the free hot breakfasts each morning, with classics like waffles; there’s the free WiFi; there’s the free tea and coffee on tap, day and night, in the lobby; and there’s the free in-room movie channel, for any nights you can’t get Broadway tickets.

I've been going to that hotel on a regular basis since 2018. So I can judge it accordingly. Pros: - Rooms: well maintained, clean, TV with a lot of channels, nice view. The 2 Queen size rooms are way better than the King size rooms that are way too small. - Bathrooms: always spotless - Staff: nice. The staff in the breakfast room is just amazing.… Read more

Check in was easy and they had early check in. Bonus since our flight arrived at 8:30 a.m. Room on the 31st floor. Quiet. No rooms are large in NYC but for the price the room had king size bed, nice bathroom and a small frig. Breakfast was a plus. You just have to time when you want to eat, they are rushes. Food is basic but good. Very… Read more
Check in was easy and they had early check in. Bonus since our flight arrived at 8:30 a.m. Room on the 31st floor. Quiet. No rooms are large in NYC but for the price the room had king size bed, nice bathroom and a small frig. Breakfast was a plus. You just have to time when you want to eat, they are rushes. Food is basic but good. Very close to subway and times square. Shout out to Joseph who helped with some bookings, luggage storage and car to get to airport. Staff very attentive and great to work with. Some other reviews have complained about elevators being slow. We only noticed when it was check out time and everyone was trying to us elevators with luggage, so they filled up. Otherwise, we had no problem with elevators and wait time very minimal. Definitely would stay here again. Read less

We were visiting New York City to attend a few shows and see the sites. I looked for a property that was centrally located and affordably priced. This property was rated highly partially for the free hot breakfast offered as part of the room rate.

Perfect location for going to shows. The breakfast food is just ok but the breakfast staff is absolutely fabulous. They had gluten-free bread in the kitchen that they toasted special for her. The cleaning staff was also super friendly and helpful. The only complaint is there was no bar. I would totally stay there again.
