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.

Amazing staff and perfect location. The staff goes out of their way to make your stay incredible. NADIRA exceeded my expectations and was accommodating, courteous and professional. She made our staff fabulous - she treats you as if you were family (the family you actually like)! I will ALWAYS stay here when I am in Philly!

My stay here was good, comfy beds, nice bathroom. But dissatisfied with front desk operations. Hotel constantly taking money out my account after checking out on time, constantly being told my money will be placed back on my account, meanwhile my account is going over my limit

I wish I could remember the concierge name but he was an older gentleman that was very very helpful in finding my way around the city. Breakfast wad good and normal fair for Hampton. The staff attending breakfast were excellent as well. I only had one morning that had cold coffee and that's because I get up and get coffee about 4am every morning. I would happily bring my family to stay. Read less

My spouse and I stayed at the Hampton Inn Philadelphia Center City-Convention Center on a Monday evening in late December 2018 (New Year’s Eve). We booked our stay online using the Hilton HHonors website. We checked in online the day prior to our stay and selected Room 1118, and that was the room that we received upon arrival, along with Diamond member benefits of two bottles of water and a packaged snack of our choice (we chose Tastykake Krimpets for the local factor). This Hampton Inn is located across the street from the Pennsylvania Convention Center; however, the hotel is located on the back side, so depending on the size of the event that you are attending, you may still need to walk around the wide block to access the correct entry doors. (We attended the New Year’s Day Mummers Fancy Brigades show, and we had to enter the Convention Center around the block from the hotel.) The hotel is within walking distance of attractions, shopping, bars, restaurants (particularly Chinatown), and the Reading Terminal Market. Both valet ($39) and self-parking ($30) are available; the surface parking lot is located across the street and down the block. A food market/sundry shop is located on the corner opposite the hotel; however, it does not sell alcoholic beverages (which we were looking for to extend our NY’s celebration). The Hampton Inn offers 250 rooms and suites, most recently renovated in April 2018, and it was evident in our guestroom’s modernity. The hotel offers an on-site bar/restaurant/lounge (called Pub 1301) where complimentary breakfast is served each morning. Although we didn’t try the breakfast (instead, we walked two blocks to Chinatown for some dim sum), we did enjoy drinks there the evening before. (Our nearby New Year’s dinner was over before midnight, but after the normal closing hours of the Pub, so we were appreciative that it remained open past midnight on that special night so that guests could celebrate there.) Private event/meeting space, a fitness center, and a small pantry shop are also available. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel, and there is a complimentary coffee station and cold water station in the lobby. The only difficulty we encountered was trying to use the public restrooms on the lobby level; our room keycards wouldn’t permit us entrance, nor would the first two bathroom keycards that we were given by the front desk agents. We booked a 1-bedroom suite that faced the rear of the convention center and allowed us a view of the William Penn statue atop City Hall and other notable downtown buildings. As we entered the suite, the bathroom on the immediate left was large, with an oversized modern shower (no bathtub), toilet, and long vanity with single sink. Plenty of storage space and toiletries (Neutrogena shampoo, conditioner, lotion) were provided. A small hanging closet was next to the bathroom in the short hallway that led to the living room area. The high ceilings in our suite made the rooms feel spacious than they probably were. The living area offered a sofa, comfortable chair, and coffee table (which had two pull out stools stored beneath it for additional seating), as well as two pieces of furniture (one that held the TV, and the other that held the microwave, mini-refrigerator, and coffee maker). In the bedroom (which could be closed off with a door) was a king-size bed abutted by two nightstands, a piece of furniture that held the TV, and a small closet. Each room had its own heating/air-conditioning units. Initially, it seemed strange to have to leave the bedroom area to use the bathroom, but we quickly adjusted. We enjoyed our stay at the Hampton Inn Philadelphia Center City-Convention Center so much that we already re-booked the same room category for next New Year’s Eve 2019 (Philly is our tradition because NYC is too crazy).

This was a great hotel, in a great location. You are within walking distance to many restaurants and bars, as well as Reading Terminal. There are plenty of pay to park lots, close by. We were on the 9th floor and it was so quiet, probably the quietest hotel we have stayed in. We would definitely stay here again.
