I travel a lot on business and stay in Hampton Inn's most of the time, but stay in better hotels when on pleasure travel. This Hampton Inn seems newer than most, clean, dependable hotel. There are plenty of options nearby for travelers, restaurants, stores -- not like Rodeo Drive, but certainly easy to find stores a business or leisure traveler might need. Was a bit surprised not to find the normal mini-fridge that most Hampton Inn's have. Stayed at this Hampton because it has better ratings than the other one in town....while I didn't go see the other one, pleased with this one.
