The Hampton Inn proved to be as convenient a location as any in the Phoenix downtown / midtown area. Located only two blocks west of the Thomas Rd. / Central Ave. Light Rail station, getting around the city of Phoenix including the airport could not be easier. St Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center dominates the area which includes a scattering of other hotels and good restaurants.
The hotel is fashionable, almost boutique in size and style. The small lounge area off the lobby acts as meeting space and dining room for the good continental breakfast and also provides access to the north-side, winter shaded outdoor pool. Coffee, filtered water and computer access is available in the lobby 24/7.
High ceilings and bright pastel colors are found in hallways and in guest rooms which are nicely furnished for the short visit. Our room was comfortable, clean and well provisioned including an extra blankets for the freezing Phoenix weather! A small refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave were included in the room. The hotel also includes free, password protected WiFi. If I were to find anything less than ideal I would suggest the wardrobe is perhaps a bit small and the bed a bit hard but overall we were more than satisfied during our stay.
As suggested, the Hampton Inn provides a very good continental breakfast. In addition to offering on-site breakfast, the Inn also has ‘breakfast bags’ available at the front desk for travelers on the go. The hotel’s fitness center includes a modern elliptical, bike and treadmill as well as exercise balls and a hand-full of free weights, all of which we used during our weekend stay.
Overall the Hampton Inn provides a solid value for a stay in Phoenix. For those feeling a bit more adventurous and wanting a true boutique experience I would also suggest the Clarendon and its attached restaurant, which we discovered while staying at the Hampton.
