I was in Boca Raton for a family event and needed a dependable hotel in a central location. The Hampton Inn seemed to fit the bill. But it was so much more than "dependable." The front desk staff could not do enough -- and they did everything with a smile. They provided excellent suggestions and made me feel 100 percent welcome and at home -- from the moment I arrived till the moment I left. The room was immaculate and spacious, the complimentary breakfast exceptionally good. (My departure was at 5 am -- and there was even a breakfast bag.) Despite being part of a chain, the hotel provided old-fashioned, thoughtful hospitality. The best of both worlds.
