Hampton Inn Times Square Central

Midtown, New York

Virgin rating

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.

Great location right at Times Square. Smooth check in and check our process. Free breakfast! That saves a lot of money when traveling, especially with children. We've stayed here multiple times and will continue to do so. Excellent service especially from Joseph. Tip: request a low floor and you'll save several minutes waiting for an elevator, especially in the morning. And hit breakfast before the final hour of breakfast in order to beat the rush. Read less

We had a great stay and for the primo location the price was very reasonable. We were able to walk most places our entire stay. Large room for NYC hotels, very comfortable bed and huge shower. Staff was wonderful anytime we asked a question or recommendation and the amenities were great especially post COVID which included a decent breakfast in the morning with a variety of hot and cold options It was also extremely quiet which is unusual for a New York City stay -the street outside does not seem heavily traveled. Regardless of the employees we encountered or shift they were working-everyone had a smile on their face and said hello. We would definitely stay here again. Read less

Booked 2 rooms with city views and both were on the 28th floor - great views. The room was very clean and tidy and you had a choice if you wanted daily cleaning or not. Cleaning lady was very helpful and friendly. All the staff went out of their way to help. The breakfast room staff were polite and welcoming and the desk staff were very helpful… Read more
Booked 2 rooms with city views and both were on the 28th floor - great views. The room was very clean and tidy and you had a choice if you wanted daily cleaning or not. Cleaning lady was very helpful and friendly. All the staff went out of their way to help. The breakfast room staff were polite and welcoming and the desk staff were very helpful as well. The bell was very knowledgeable and looked after us. The hotel is minutes from Times square and quiet. A great base. We will be staying here again. Read less
