Although HGI and Hampton Inn are both managed by Hilton, this hotel has been upgraded considerably. It is in a very convenient location. Clean, modern well-equipped, and quiet. All new fitness center. Richard at breakfast a very helpful staff person. Highly recommend.

We really like Hampton Inns, and this is the best one we've stayed in yet. Set back from the road, which is nice, except the sign on Western Avenue is small and easy to miss if you don't know it's coming. Well maintained, super clean, very comfortable rooms and great breakfast. Very helpful and friendly staff; Matt at the front... More

We stayed here early August. The hotel is very nice and the finishing touches were being added which didn't impact on our stay. My only gripe was with the payment. I originally paid by credit card when this hotel was previously a Holiday Inn Express and though the hotel is now a Hampton my booking and payment would be honoured.... More

This was previously a Holiday Inn Express that has been remodeled and re-branded as a Hampton Inn. It is a great property. I enjoyed it as an HIE, but the remodeling has brought it to a higher level. The staff is wonderful, the rooms are spectacular! I had some intense business to handle while in Albany and the Hampton provided... More

This hotel had the most wonderful bed I have ever slept in, which includes my comfy bed at home. The coverlet was the proper weight, the mattress was supportive and the pillows were just right. The room had been recently updated to a contemporary style with clean lines and ample space. I was there for only one night, but I... More

This Hampton sits back off the beaten path which makes for a very quiet, restful place. Different architectural design to this one too which visually and aesthetically was interesting. Great big rooms all recently redecorated and bravo to the designer used here! What great setups, us of colors, appointments, furniture, great LED lighting and charging stations everywhere for all your... More

The hotel was redone since it was a Holiday Inn Express. Very nicely refurbished. Mattresses were hard. Air Conditioning was too cold for the bed nearest window, too hot for the bed nearest the bathroom. Otherwise, very nice hotel. I'd stay there again.

As a diamond member, I've stayed at a fair share on Hampton Inns. This one is by far the best and deserving of a stellar review. The hotel is recently remodeled with rooms featuring a cool modern vibe. Kudos to the manager for the Tuesday night reception, a feature that truly sets your hotel apart from other Hamptons. Given the... More

This is the Hampton Inn where the cool kids hang out. After a long day on the road it was a pleasant jolt to walk into a room with modern--dare we say hip--decor. The walls are more of an eggshell white, a bright contrast to the typical Hampton beige. The furniture is knockoff Scandinavian, but still a welcome contrast. A... More

My family and I stayed at this newly re-modeled Hampton Inn for one night while doing college visits with our son. The Inn was easy to findwith easy access to I90. The room was clean. Beds were comfy. Staff was so nice and helpful. Breakfast was awesome! The pool was small but refreshing. We had a perfect stay!
