My business travels took me to Boca last week, and, when possible, I have my travel arranger book me into a hampton. Although hidden a bit back from Yamato road, the hotel's name is displayed on a sign on the roadside that lists several other businesses in that turn-in. It is possible to miss the sign if you're looking for the typical Hampton Inn signage.
Check in (about 6:30pm on a Monday) was efficient; the person at the desk gave me thee basics and said he had upgraded my room. He also gave me at my request a bottle of water. Don't know if the upgrade was a result of my Hilton Gold status or something else... The lobby area like most Hamptons is pleasant with the breakfast area immediately ahead of the front door.
My ungraded roon was actually fairly small but had two windows due to the architecture of the building. It had the usual features of bed, desk, sitting chair, bureau and small fridge and microwave. bathroom was typical HI style (not a bad thing).
The room was quiet during the week I stayed and the amenities were again the usual HI amenities. Internet access was good but not particularly fast. Housekeeping did its job - no complaints.
The fact that there was no exercise room on site was a definite disadvantage; the pool was also rather small.
The hotel had a manager's reception week nights. The one time I tried it, they had chips and salsa, red and white wine in carafes (not bottles to figure out the source or type. The hot entries were minimalist - small chicken pieces in a wings-style sauce and pigs-in-a-blanket. The gesture was a plus, but I've encountered much more robust options at other Hamptons.
The breakfast was again what one expects at a Hampton. One real plus to my way of thinking was the availability of hardboiled eggs. They're often left off the menu in these types of breakfasts, and I find them more "real" thgan the prepackaged scrambled effs of omlettes.
All in all, a solid business and leisure destination at a reasonable price. I'm just not sure that I'll have any distinct impressions of this particular Hampton Inn in six weeks...
