The hotel

Stayed at this hotel a couple times most recently I’ve noticed the bed sheets have not been fresh and cleaned nor the remotes, a/c etc. in the current situation to COVID19 I’m even more concerned. I’d suggest you also check a recent Inside Edition expose on the property - definitely will not be returning here

I found this place to be relaxing, quiet, and in a great location by Time Square. The rooms were clean and the service was great. The amenities were a bit limited but that’s to be expected in the area. I will stay here again.

We spent a week at the Hampton Inn in a family room. Room was clean, beds were comfortable and the room size was good for NYC. Breakfast was ok with a good selection of options, however be sure to avoid between 8-10 as it does get busy. When it is busy, it is painful and we did a couple of times go out and buy breakfast, which is a little bit of false economy as we had paid for it in the hotel price, but the area was too small to be comfortable eating. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. Free coffee and hot chocolate in the room and hotel lobby. The location is right in the middle of midtown so really handy for first time visitors to NYC. We picked this hotel because it's close to major subways and Port Authority. Would definitely visit again. Recommended. I wanted to give it a full 5 stars, but for 2 of the days we were there, one lift was out of service and when you are on the 8th floor, that is a little grinding on how long it takes to get a lift fixed....

Great location ! Easy to get around ! Rooms are very small so not good for family of 4 with luggage. Ended up getting 2 rooms since we were staying for a week ! Felt safe during the virus ! Breakfast was great each morning and whole staff very friendly! Self serve laundry service ! And great having a concierge and bell man !

Rooms were clean, concierge was extremely helpful in booking tours and shuttle to airport. Great location, was in easy walking distance to the subways and lots of restaurants. Pretty quiet considering it is located right off Times Square. Will stay here again!
