Hampton Inn Philadelphia City Center

Philadelphia, USA

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.

Very disappointed with service, cleanliness, and quality of room. Hotel appeared understaffed and all areas suffered as a result. Breakfast was average to poor. My impressions of the Hampton Brand have been steadily decreasing as of late.

Nadira Spriggs was amazingly helpful and kind. She made me feel very comfortable and welcomed. The hotel was nice and clean, as well as spacious. The area was a bit interesting. The hotel had parking across the street and was relatively close to all attractions. See you next time. Thank you!

Peeling paint, dust, messy lobby but friendly and helpful staff. I wouldn’t stay again but for some people this may be an OK trade for price and location. I made a special trip to buy new towels at Target. The towels were dingy and didn’t look clean.

Had a great 4 day stay in July 2019. The place was neat and clean, close to the convention center and Reading Terminal Market. Close to city hall and chinatown. I didn't have time for much sightseeing though. I arrived an hour or two early and thought that I'd have to check my bag and come back. Heather at the front desk was very helpful and… Read more
Had a great 4 day stay in July 2019. The place was neat and clean, close to the convention center and Reading Terminal Market. Close to city hall and chinatown. I didn't have time for much sightseeing though. I arrived an hour or two early and thought that I'd have to check my bag and come back. Heather at the front desk was very helpful and told me that she could give me a room that was ready right away rather than my waiting for the one that I'd picked online. Since I used the "let the system pick a room for you" I was ok with that. Robert, one of the doormen was very friendly and helpful and recommended that I go to the Reading Terminal Market if I had time. I did. I had 3 lunches there and some delicious banana pudding from Sweet Nina's. My room came with free breakfast in a room off the lobby. I ate there every morning of my stay and enjoyed it. They had eggs, bacon, toast pastries, bread, cereals, fruit etc. available. Tamara and Stephanie at breakfast were both on the ball. Cleared my dirty dishes right away and asked if they could get me anything. I was fine, but really appreciated the attention. I would definitely go back to this property. Read less

The A/C unit was loud and the fan was rubbing on something. A technician was requested and checked out the unit and said that was just the way the fan sounded. He didn't even attempt to open the unit to try to make it quieter. Also the toilet, in another room that was part of our booking, stopped up 4 times over the course of our 5 day stay. The… Read more
The A/C unit was loud and the fan was rubbing on something. A technician was requested and checked out the unit and said that was just the way the fan sounded. He didn't even attempt to open the unit to try to make it quieter. Also the toilet, in another room that was part of our booking, stopped up 4 times over the course of our 5 day stay. The final time the service request to unclog the toilet was called in, the tech did not arrive until after a follow up phone call and me going to the front desk to inquire. 4 hours after the first call the tech came to the room . One room also had a strange underlying distinctive odor - like cheap perfume. Read less
