I travel 45 weeks out of the year and I only stay in Hilton products, so you might say I am a Hampton expert. The Hampton Inn and Suites at Valley Forge is my number one Hampton in the country.
As with most all Hampton's, the prIces are good, the breakfasts are more than acceptable, the AC units work great, the TV's clear and sharp and my favorite, the bedding is very comfy and clean. This inn does not have the in room movies that many hotels do, but that is ok with me as I don't want all the adult XXX junk at my fingertips. So what sets this particular Hampton apart? The staff. They go out of their way to meet my needs and they are warm and friendly. When you travel by yourself every week, warm and friendly is a big deal.
I have stayed in most of the rooms at this Inn and they are in good repair, clean and more than acceptable. A ten minute walk takes you to Max and Ermas, Kamita Asian (ask for May) and there is a great pizza place in two minutes and a Bob Evans across the parking lot.
A short drive away is the adorable village of Phoenixville, and Iron Hill Brewery (a favorite) and Sly Fox Brewing. One more hint. As you might guess, I am a beer geek. Pennsylvania is a miserable state to buy beer because of it's archaic liquor laws. Just travel one exit west on 422 and visit the outdoor mall right across the street from the exit. Wegman's grocery has a killer beer selection in their restaurant area.
One more hint. This inn is right on Pa 422 and it is a parking lot going east toward Philly in the morning and equally slow heading toward Pottstown in the evening rush. Just plan around that and you will find this location very convenient to Valley Forge, the casino, King of Prussia Mall and lots of other cool stuff.
