I chose this hotel as it is in the Hilton family as a function of rewards, and that it is directly across the street from the civil courthouse. Free breakfast that is better than most hamptons, very helpful staff.

To experience the essence and culture of the city this location is perfect. Shopping, restaurants, nightlife, plays are within walking distance. It's appropriate for any age with great amenities like the workout room, business center and salt water pool. I always feel safe with a security guard on duty. Great staff and well run facility.

We travel extensively and rarely have stayed at a Hampton so were not sure what to expect. This property was a pleasant surprise; clean, spacious, quiet and well situated right in the heart of town and opposite a good restaurant - Harry's (with a very attractive waiter - Joshua, who really looked after us!:) It was a great change to...

Spent a night at the beginning of a road trip with my daughter. The theme for the stay started at the front desk when the receptionist who checked us in was either management or fresh of the training scheme. He managed to compare seeming sincere, friendly, welcoming and efficient in one effortless piece of work. The room was unremarkable but... More

We stayed at this hotel while our daughter attended soccer camp at UF. I was a bit skeptical but we didn't have many options that were close to the campus. I was surprised when we arrived to the hotel. It was clean and the staff was very extremely friendly. The room and bath were impeccable. Breakfast is included. The hotel... More

I had a very nice stay at this hotel the beginning of July. Breakfast was great, staff was friendly, room was very clean. Proximity of restaurants and bars was very nice and it is close to everthing. Typical downtown setting is not for everyone but we didn't have any issues.

We normally like to stay at Hampton Inns, I was skeptical about staying here due to the mixed reviews that we saw, wished that I had gone with my gut and stayed else where. The valet was not there when we came, so we had to wait, the clerk was not at the desk so more waiting. I was tired... More

We stayed here at the recommendation of someone and were skeptical that the hotel would be as nice as they said. They were right! Clean, large suite rooms and great breakfast. Valet parking is the easiest because of the location, which is the only part that was a little annoying. Overall very pleased and would definitely stay here again.

I am not big into chains, so likely my review is somewhat tinted by that. I find them boring. The location of the hotel is great. In the thick of everything, restaurants and shops. Also, they have free access to computer and printer at the lobby, which is nice. Free fast food/cheap type breakfast. Happy hour at the lobby in... More
