We stayed at the Hampton for Red, White, and Boom. Valet parking is expensive at $21 considering nearby hotels charge $12 but they do have their own parking garage and it did look secure. You are very close to the Short North, Arena District, and the North Market. There are a ton of restuaurants in the area. The hotel has 3 or 4 elevator banks making it a quick trip to your room even when the hotel is busy. Our room had a sitting area separate from the bedroom. I wondered how detailed the cleaning was considering I found a pill someone dropped on the floor under the desk area. We couldn't get the shower to give us hot water just warm. The beds were super comfortable and we slept well. The room had two LCD TV's one in the sitting area and one in the bedroom. The room had many windows to let in the natural light, we heard very little street noise due to the constant running of the airconditioning system. The hotel breakfast was above what you normally get as breakfast. The breakfast consisted of waffles, omlets, bacon, hashbrowns, fruit (fresh), etc.
