“Average Hotel in Danbury”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

We stayed for one night at this hotel as a base for leaf-peeping in the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut. It appears as though the building was originally in some other chain of hotels and retrofitted to be a Hampton Inn. It just was not typical of most of the chain's hotels-- breakfast room was in the basement area-- down a flight of steps or via elevator and not off the lobby, the lobby itself was laid-out totally differently from other Hampton's. The elevators were in an odd place as well. It was also apparent from the elevators that the building was rather old. However, they did a reasonably good job at updating all the rest of the hotel so age wasn't that apparent elsewhere. The hotel is located in the back of a parking lot and faces a couple of restaurants and a major highway. There are no "grounds" to the hotel at all, just a large parking lot that reminded me of the lot in a strip shopping center. Parking was also somewhat difficult. We had to wait a fairly long time to get checked in including putting up with someone who decided to butt in front of me. The desk clerk didn't pick up on that and ended up apologizing to me for the wait. That was annoying. The room we were given was satisfactory. However, even though I am a Hilton Honors member with a lot of stays, we were not given the normal AAA discount we have always received at every other Hampton Inn. We were told that "the computer" was not allowing the discount. The clerk said he would continue to try getting me the rate but that never happened. He said it was probably because the hotel was full. That bothered me because it was clear at breakfast the next morning that there were several kids' soccer teams staying at the hotel for a tournament and they normally get a group discount even though they may never stay at a Hampton Inn again. The breakfast was okay; space to sit was at a premium. It was an acceptable stay, but I think next time we are in the area, we will probably look for a hotel with a nicer location.

Room Tip: Higher floors would be better. Eat breakfast early to make sure you have a place to sit.

We spent the last night of our week vacation in Vermont area at this Hampton in Danbury. While we usually stay at Hamptons, this one was extra special. The room was immaculate and the staff at the front desk was exceptional. When we asked for restaurant suggestions, we were given a complete list of closeby restaurants which included explicit directions from the hotel and also gave a brief comment about each place. As a result, we had one of our best dinners and didnt have to hunt around all night looking for a place. The breakfast in the morning was also good. Also received perfect instructions of how to find our highway when we left. Kudos to the front desk people. We would definitely stop here again.

Being considered special is a badge of honor that our team will cherish. The Hampton Inn team knows that it is the basic conveniences that make an enjoyable stay. We attempt to make convenience as important as cleanliness! Thank you again.

We had a lovely, clean, king-size room with a chaise lounge, desk, tv and other amenities. While we didn't have time to use the pool or fitness center, both looked great. Hot breakfasts were awesome and lasted until 10 am allowing my husband to play hockey at 8, win the tournament and come back to a hot meal!

Gretchen B,

Thank you for choosing our Hampton Inn Danbury. We hope that we can say that our breakfast was a portion of the reason that your husband won his hockey game! Please feel free to invite the other team members for next year's games. Thank you again.

Stayed one night here on our way to Boston and we had been driving for about 12 hours. What a welcome relief after being on the road for so long. Staff very friendly and accommodating. The food for breakfast was very good. Thank you for such a nice stay.

We stayed there as a family of four. Staff was extremely friendly and supportive, especially at the front desk. Room was clean and tidy. So more space would be appreciated for breakfast. Specifically on weekends it got too busy. The manager mentioned that some reconstruction was under way.

we stay at this hotel on a regular basis. it is always clean and the indoor pool area is very nice (that's our favorite part) We stayed in the King, extra large room and it was a beautiful room. And we love the free hot cookies they serve in the evening!

This hotel is located close to the highway. It is easy access for people coming from the north or south. The rooms are adequate and the accommodated our group quite nicely. The food and beverage service was great and the guest rooms are quite comfortable.
