“More than 5 circles, an excellent value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

My husband and I stayed here for 6 days, while moving our daughter in to her college apartment. This is our second stay here, and I can tell you that it's a great value. Everything is very clean, and the room was comfortable and quiet. The free breakfast is very enjoyable, and is frequently restocked (nice fruit salad). The convention center location is very convenient, and you are a short walk from the Reading Terminal and all of its food delights.

Most of all, the staff at this hotel make it a terrific experience. Every employee is friendly and helpful - and I do mean every employee! Special tip of the hat to the breakfast room workers, who start your day with a helpful smile. Although Hampton Inn is our "price point", I would not bother staying elsewhere in Philly; you are just throwing your money away. I have no criticisms for this property, only approval. We would not stay anywhere else in Center City!

Green Features: Guest rooms have a subdivided waste basket, so that you can sort your recyclable trash. This is only the second time we have seen this in any hotel, and Hampton Inn gets our approval for including this in their rooms.

This is the second Hampton Inn I have stayed at in the last few months. You cannot beat the value especially for the price. Parking was available for valet or parking the car myself across the street. It was reasonable and safe and I had easy access to my car during the entire stay. I liked having the breakfast available- the food was good, staff very friendly and helpful and a great start to the day. If running late a bagged breakfast was available which was a nice option if you were short on time. Having hot tea, coffee, and hot chocolate 24/7 was also a pleasant addition. All in all a great stay in a super hotel. Thank you!!!!!

This hotel is a very good value--great location (just steps to the convention center), recently renovated (including its pool), good service, and good breakfast. In arrived at 7am and my room was ready. I can't tell you how nice it was to be able to get into my room early after arriving on a red-eye flight! My friend stayed at a nearby five-star hotel and wasn't able to check in until nearly 5pm.
During my convention, I was too busy for breakfast so I just grabbed a pre-made bagged breakfast or made my own from the breakfast buffet. In the afternoon, there are freshly baked cookies.
The people at the hotel were very helpful with directions and answering any questions I had. Thanks for making my stay welcoming.

This hotel is conveniently located near the airport with free shuttle service and nice variety of food for breakfast. Staff is very courteous and went above and beyond to accommodate my family. Our vehicle was parked safely at the hotel which enabled us to enjoy our vacation on the island of enchantment without a worry...

This Hampton was consistent with my expectations of other Hampton Inns. The lobby was very nice and they offered ample breakfast seating. The staff working breakfast was extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel also had a small bar that served drinks and snacks in the evenings--a bit unusual compared to other Hamptons. Overall, it was clean and well-kept except from some dislodged grout in the bathroom floor. It was easy to get cabs and the hotel was in walking distance of quite a few restaurants, etc. It is adjacent to China town and we noticed what appeared to be homeless people nearby, but we did not feel unsafe walking to/from the hotel in the evenings.

Stayed at Hampton Inn for Penn Relays (last weekend of April) and quite convenient location. Friendly staff, clean room, reasonable price for stay. Would definitely stay here again. Breakfast the usual but good choices. Pool a little small but clean.

A venor was supposed to have made a reservation. It did not. Elaine of the front desk honored the rate and got me a room. Glad to have that kind of service after flying from Detroit to Chicago to Philadephia arriving at the hotel at 8:00p.m.
