“Great hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2011

I've stayed here twice with my wife, and both visits were highly satisfying. Our room was spacious, clean, and comfortable, and everything worked. The staff cheerfully accomodated a special request on our most recent visit. If you're looking for a downtown hotel location in Charleston, try staying here. I don't think you'll be sorry.

I was a little apprehensive when I booked because this Hampton has received mixed reviews. But....I was very pleased once I saw my room. It is not a new hotel, but the room was decorated nicely and had a large flat-screen TV. The bed was super comfy. There was a little noise from the highway, but not overbearing. The hotel also offers a free shuttle to the nearby mall and restaurants, so once you park at the hotel...you can go to dinner and unwind with a couple of drinks without worrying about getting a taxi or driving. Overall....a nice Hampton Inn.

The Hampton Inn Charleston Downtown is, as the name says, it is right in downtown Charleston WV. Free parking is provided for guests at the muti-storied hotel with an indoor pool and whirpool and lobby breakfast area, decorated to Hampton Inn standards with local photographs. The pool was undergoing repairs at the time of the stay.

This was my first HiltonHHonors stay and the check in process was more over the top than I've experienced at competing hotel operators and strange as extras were guaranteed to a HiltonHHonors credit card. The clerk later called to apologize as she was new on the job.

The room was tastefully furnished in Hampton quality furniture and had been renovated within a recent time period. The king bed was exceptionally comfortable to Hilton standards and there were several pillow types to choose from. Standard Hampton toiletries were available and the towels were soft. This hotel room had a full wall that contained a roll around desk and armoire and while the mobile desk could be a convenience, the choice of ottoman or upholstered chair for seating at the desk might be a problem for one needing to do a business day's work in the room as opposed to a standard office chair.

The room was quiet although close to the freeway and in the downtown area. Everything was clean and no other problems were encountered. Breakfast was Hampton standard with two hot items as well as cereal, yogurt and fruit items.

This hotel is jsut like every Hampton. Made my resverations over phone when finding out my flight had been cancelled. By the time I arrived, they had added my Hilton number to my name without me asking.
Very friendly and helpful once arrived.

I would ALWAYS stay at a Hampton when given a choice, and I would definitely would at this location!

We only stayed one night in this hotel, but from our arrival to departure the staff was friendly and accomodating. It is conveniently located within walking distance to a shopping mall and restuarants. The room, as well as the bed, was comfortable. The breakfast buffet was satisfying.

We note the previous reviewer ranked this as the worst Hampton ever. We stayed there a couple of days after him, and the hotel and staff must have undergone a miraculous transformation because we found it absolutely fine. We like Hamptons and in terms of comfort, breakfast and welcome from the staff, this hotel is well up to standard.
Despite being by the interstate, it wasn't noisy. We stayed a Saturday night, when downtown was deserted, and it was a bit creepy. It wasn't too far however to the shopping mall, which had a number of restaurants, including the Tidewater Grill - recommended
