Hampton Inn Times Square Central

Midtown, New York

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.

For vacationers it’s the perfect location, a block and a half away from Times Square. Check-in and check-our were easy; the room, though not very large, is pretty comfortable.

For vacationers it’s the perfect location, a block and a half away from Times Square. Check-in and check-our were easy; the room, though not very large, is pretty comfortable. The water pressure in the shower could be a little higher, for a better showering experience. The hotel provides a very good breakfast on a self- service basis (always crowded the breakfast room, which should be a little larger). Water, tea, coffee and a chocolate drink are always available at the reception and at 5 PM they also provide guests with delicious cookies. A gym for workout is located in the basement, next to the laundry. Wi-fi worked well everywhere in the hotel. All in all we had a very nice stay at this hotel. Read less

Check in was quick with friendly and helpful desk clerks. Very convenient to everything we wanted to do around Times Square and beyond. Clean room. Fast elevators. Appreciated the concierge who reserved a shuttle to Newark airport.

I just returned from four nights at this Hampton Inn, and it was a very good experience. While the traffic could sometimes get a little noisy, the hotel is just far enough away from two major intersections to provide a respite from much of the outside hustle and bustle. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and nicely updated, and there were no stains or signs of wear on the furniture and bedding. The employees stood out for their friendliness; every time a member of the maintenance department was on the elevator, they greeted the other passengers, and several times I witnessed the breakfast staff cheerfully helping fulfill an individual request in the midst of very crowded dining room. While I did not use the services of the concierge, it was good to know that this was an option. During my visit it was quite cold outside, but the complimentary coffee/tea/hot water station in the lobby was always amply stocked and free from litter. These fine points can make all the difference to a busy traveler, and I greatly appreciate how well this hotel treated its guests. Read less

The hotel is an older building which has been recently modernized and updated very nicely. I was quite happy with the service from the staff, quite happy with the room I was given. The breakfast area was a bit cramped with all the people, but the actual size of the room where breakfast was served was very large. I am sure its normal congestion… Read more

I am sure its normal congestion since Times Square is a popular visit location. Read less

The hotel was perfectly located in Times Square and we could walk everywhere. The lobby was spacious and the included breakfast was very good. A staff member showed us how to get to the 911 Museum on the subway map which as was appreciated. Each member we had contact with was pleasant & helpful. The coffee, tea & hot chocolate in the lobby was nice to have available anytime. Our room was comfortable and quiet except for the ice machine outside our door. I’d ask for a different room the next time! We’d definitely stay there if we’re in the area again. Read less
