Hampton Inn Times Square Central

New York, USA

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 visited this hotel in June 2021.

I visited this hotel in June 2021.

You can always ask for extra bottles of water at the lobby. There is not mini fridge on the room. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast has a lot of options, good enough to start your day. Depending on the hour the elevators may be a little bit delayed, nothing to be worried about. I would book this hotel on my next trip to New York, the location is priceless! Read less

The hotel was very clean. The complimentary breakfast buffet was very good - we weren’t sure if it was going to be a buffet or just a grab and go.… Read more

A quick but very pleasant visit. The location is so very convenient to everything in the Theater district and that is a big plus. I always appreciate that the staff is so friendly. This was a COVID-era visit and I was pleased with the cleanliness of my room and of the general spaces.

Our room was just right at the price point. Why 4 stars instead of 5: breakfast service, an important part of the Hampton value proposition, was far too cramped to be COVID-aware and food was too processed. Read less
