The hotel

An award-winning hotel, you’ll be assured of a comfortable stay at the Hampton Inn. Not only that, you’re in a great location too, possibly one of the best in Philly, with attractions galore on your doorstep as well as shops, bars and restaurants. Family-friendly, rooms are spacious and well-equipped, providing a welcome respite at the end of a busy day. A complimentary breakfast gets the day off to a great start, after perhaps a stint in the fitness room. Come sundown, there are plenty of eateries to choose from, offering up delights such as the world-famous Philly cheese steak sandwich! But don’t forget to pay a visit to the hotel’s very own Pub 1301 – serving cocktails and pints, it’s the ideal place to catch your breath before heading out the doors again.

Great location to a lot of exciting things to do in Phila. You get a good breakfast which is a plus.Friendly staff and very willing to help you get to the different sites you want to see. The only down side is that parking is $40 a night.

Cons parking. The lot is across & down the street outside with zero cover. Pouring rain you are soaking wet picking up car. Lot is extremely tight and small. Price going up to $50 a day it's currently $30. Room bed cover was not clean otherwise rooms are just lots of wear and tear but perfectly fine., nothing special. Air conditioning/heater super loud and ours didn't work. Read less

This was the best place I’ve stayed in a while. Breakfast was delicious and the staff was so friendly. We stayed there 3 nights total and was so pleased with how easy check in and out was. Fresh cookies during the day and lovely bar at night.

Booked last minute with Priceline. Check in service was perfect. Excellent front desk staff. Great personality. Parking is not cheap $39 for valet but their system is excellent with text notifications and car retrieval. Room was spacious and super clean.

Booked last minute with Priceline. Check in service was perfect. Excellent front desk staff. Great personality. Parking is not cheap $39 for valet but their system is excellent with text notifications and car retrieval. Room was spacious and super clean. Problem number 1: the a/c heating unit sounded exactly like a washing machine going all night. Decided to go down stairs to the restaurant for a snack. Ordered 2 bowls of soup problem number 2: it took about a half hour to get the soup as there was only one person who was taking orders, bussing tables, handling cash, preparing take out , etc. when i asked if it was going to be much longer she responded “yes.” Not a people friendly person at all. Not to mention the soup was basically a salt -lick. I received a text from the front desk asking how the room was. I said the room was fine but your restaurant is a disaster and gave my reasons. Her response. I’ll pass it on to my manager and “ how can we make this right.” Problem number 3: in the hotel business never ask your guest how to fix your problem. Looking for me to suggest some type of compensation undermines my concerns and makes it seem I was just out for a freebie of some sort. Better off telling the guest “I’m sorry for your trouble and we have done xyz.” Read less

Nadeira (sp?), front office manager, took care of a small situation I had at the the hotel, and handled it in a courteous and professional manner. I would definitely stay here again due to the fact that everyone here was so nice, and it's clean! Read less
