“Grand Restoration of Old Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Hampton Inn has done a wonderful job restoring an old downtown hotel in Bradenton FL. For years, the coral eyesore made people wish someone would come along and do something about it. Well, Hampton did and they did it beautifully. The old small rooms have been consolidated into larger rooms and suites. There is something for everyone. We upgraded to a junior suite and had an absolutely wonderful room The only drawbacks were too little light and too heavy a duvet. This is a problem we seem to be encountering more and more. The duvets are so heavy they are uncomfortable even if you wanted more warmth. Fortunately there was a blanket in the closet and the housekeepers left the duvet on a chair instead of returning it to the bed every day. There is a hot breakfast and a newspaper every morning. They have the USA Today during the week, but had the Bradenton Herald on Saturdays and Sundays -- a nice touch. The breakfast was generous and good with different egg entrees each day.

Room Tip: Many King rooms have balconies. You can request one.

The staff were not only polite, friendly and accommodating, but they actually helped us with our business objectives [photo shoot] and made our jobs much easier. The location is close to some decent restaurants and conveniently located near a marina. The downtown main street area is quaint and looks like anytown USA.

Our first stay in Brandeton and as noted by many, this property is quite different from the cookie cutter Hampton. This is a renovated classic hotel with a beautiful marble floored lobby and a huge three-sided windowed breakfast room so full of sunshine, it makes everyone say hello and good morning! Be sure to pick up one of the cards located in the public areas to make special recognition of employees who have impressed you in some way. They are certainly trying and that's super management and training!

We stayed in a suite (515) and the river view was distant but we enjoyed seeing the lightning reflections bouncing off the glass walled bank building on the other side of the street. We had no problems parking in the lot in front and saw other clearly marked lots around the block. The room was fine, bedding excellent and extra soft pillows delivered as requested. Thanks!

Old Main Street restaurants and pier are easily reach with a short walk from the hotel. No need to drive. I felt quite safe walking in that area at night. Hotel is about 20 minutes straight down the road from the north entry to Anna Maria Island, our target for five days of winter rental research.
St. Pete is about 30 minutes away over the sky bridge. Tampa appeared to be another 30 minutes up the road.

I'd stay here again no question. We found the house keeping inconsistent, although bed made and fresh towels every day. I requested a refill on the note pad and the ice bucket wasn't refreshed two of our five days. All petty stuff.

Room Tip: We would have liked to have seen the corner room suites. On check in, the front desk found our reque...

This new Hampton Inn, in a historic building, gets everything right. Quaint outdoor seating, fun lobby decor, friendly staff all make it an extremely comfortable stay. Rooms are brand new with lush and comfortable bedding and towels. The only thing missing is a fridge & microwave. I'm sure that's because of the age of the building and wiring. We are within a very easy walk of the Riverwalk, South Florida Museum, bars, Manatee Performing Hall and a short drive to the Anna Maria Island beaches. We love the location and the excellent staff.

This is probably the nicest hotel in the downtown area. Not much to do in the area on the weekends...you will definitely need to have a car to get any place interesting. The staff was friendly and the free breakfast was satisfying. Everything was very clean and upgraded. If you are not staying in the beach area of Bradenton than this is the best option for you.

Well located, close to nice restaurants, very clean and historic building renovated last two years. Reminds of old southern hotel, parking right in front and back. Staff very pleasant and well trained. Pool outside, work out facilities clean, 7 floors, two elevators, everything worked.
