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.

I booked to stay in this hotel as a surprise for my other half’s 30th birthday. The hotel is in a great location and just a short stroll to Times Square. The room we had was a decent size for the 2 of us, and we didn’t notice any noise at night. The hotel is clean and the staff were really helpful. We arrived early so our room wasn’t ready, but we were able to safely store our bags and use the toilets to change in as we wanted to freshen up after our flight, which meant we could start exploring and check in later. After booking online I got in touch with the hotel to let them know it was a birthday surprise, and they kindly offered suggestions of where I could order a cake and balloons to be put in the room. I didn’t end up organising anything but the hotel staff put a card and some snacks in the room which was a lovely surprise! Would definitely recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again!

From the moment you enter the the hotel just a step or two from Times Square you’re greeted with a wonderful smile and a welcome. The lobby, not fancy is clean and inviting. My room , a standard NYC size was clean and bright. Bed is no a soft, bathroom and shower a little small - but understandable for the price I paid. I really enjoy my stay at… Read more

Anytime I’m traveling with my kids, I always try to find best and cleanest Hampton Inn Hotel around. And when visiting New York City, this was it. The location placed us in the middle of Times Square which was walking distance from the main stores and restaurants and/or perhaps a short UBer drive away. More importantly, the manager Hicham was awesome in his professionalism and accommodations as we needed an additional room once we checked-in. We are forever grateful for his assistance. Therefore, I highly recommend Hampton Inn/Manhattan Times Square. Read less

We stayed at this property for our son's wedding in NYC. The location of the hotel is great, however the exceptional service of the Front Desk agents Kris and Rachelle made our stay absolutely comfortable and made us feel home away from home. We would definitely stay there again the next time we are in NYC.

Stayed here for a week with my parents. The hotel is in a perfect location, and right by 42nd Street Subway Station. We walked to many attractions from the hotel and also used the subway a lot. The hotel was clean, staff very friendly and helpful. The breakfast that was included was of a good standard and helpful not to have to worry about eating out every morning. There was a lovely lady that worked most mornings, who would always go out of her way to get me gluten free toast or bagels. Breakfast gets really busy and we most often went down for 6am to avoid the masses. I would stay at the Hampton again and recommend. Read less
