“A recommended place for a wedding.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

When we travel to Greenville, SC we always try to stay downtown. So, when we were making plans for our son’s wedding, in Greenville we recommended to the guests they stay at the Hampton Inn and Suites mainly because of the location. The rehearsal dinner and reception were within walking distance of the Hampton. Looking back we could not have asked for a friendlier place to stay. Our stay was as expected clean, prompt and helpful. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and would recommend the Hampton to everyone.

Room Tip: Certainly ask for a room overlooking the river.

Steven T, I am so glad to hear that your son's wedding weekend was so successful. During the height of wedding season it seems that we have three or four wedding parties with us each weekend due to our prime location within walking distance to so many of the top downtown venues. We certainly try our best to make what can be such a stressful time, relaxing and enjoyable through our friendly and hospitable service. We hope you will get the opportunity to visit us again in the near future!

For five years I have traveled to Downtown Greenville for various reasons from business to pleasure, and each time I choose to stay at the Hampton Inn & Suites on Riverplace. There is no other hotel more convenient to everything you may want to visit and see downtown. You walk out the front door and find yourself immediately on a sidewalk portion of the greenway connecting downtown to Traveler's Rest to the North or choose to walk south across the icon Falls bridge toward the Greenville Zoo or state park. The Greenville Drive baseball stadium is a short 5 minute walk past numerous restaurants, and the outdoor amphitheater (currently undergoing renovation) and the Pease Performing Arts center is a short three minute walk across the river.

The room are always clean and comfortable. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The warm and healthy breakfast is awesome: Eggs, waffles, bacon, oatmeal, freash fruit, yogurt, cereal...if you're still hungry after breakfast it's your own fault. The Hampton Inn & Suites downtown is a great experience. Parking is convenient in the lower level parking deck on site for a great price of $6/day.

Room Tip: If you like to "people watch" of enjoy all the activity along the river, request a riverfr...

Our daughter's wedding reception was at Wyche Pavilion and a block of rooms was reserved at the Hampton Inn Downtown/Riverplace for out of town wedding guests. The location, which directly overlooks the River and Wyche Pavilion, cannot be beat! Our guests loved the opportunity to walk to the reception, along the river, to the falls and to all of the downtown restaurants and attractions. The free breakfast was excellent and exceeded our guests' expectations with a wide variety of fresh food choices. The rooms were clean & very nice, especially the King suites with balconies overlooking the river. The staff was very good and I especially would like to commend Shelby Goold Dodgens, the Sales Manager who handled our wedding block. From beginning to end, she made sure everything went smoothly. I personally booked 11 rooms for family members and Shelby double-checked all the reservations for me, promptly answered any questions or concerns I had, made sure that check-in for the guests was handled properly, and followed up afterwards to make sure we were satisfied with everything. The Hampton Inn Downtown/Riverplace is a great place to host guests attending a Greenville wedding!

The staff was very helpful and the location was terrific -- on the river and an easy walk downtown and also to the local minor league baseball park. Parking was additional, but only $6. The breakfast was the best we've ever had included in an American hotel, including lots of very fresh fruits and berries. Several very good restaurants within easy walking distance. The free computers for guest use in the lobby were convenient, so we never even used the in-room wi-fi. We would certainly stay there again. The workout room was small, with well-maintained equipment, but not many machines.

Room Tip: We did not request a river view, but would next time.

The hotel has a great location and good rooms. Our story was we booked four nights through Expedia and paid extra for a king suite with balcony and river view (we were told). We did not get it, they were booked up and none were available, and we were stuck because we had prepaid through a third party, Expedia. Nikki worked on it, arranged a river view room with a balcony, and brought in a portable refer and microwave to make up for the lost kitchenette that came with the king suite. While it was not exactly what we thought we were getting, the overall experience may have been better because the great customer service made the minor adjustments we had to make seem inconsequential.

Room Tip: Get a river view room with a balcony and use it.

The view from the 5th floor corner room was spectacular, even with the construction going on at the Peace Center.
