I just got home from a week's stay at the Hampton. I traveled with my 85 year old mother. Both my mother and I loved the hotel. Our room was facing the stadium. At first I was concerned after reading some of the reviews on staying on the stadium side. On our last night there was a big game and a street party which began around 4 pm. We actually enjoyed the music and did not find the game or crowd leaving at 10 pm to be noisy. We had a very pleasant experience facing the stadium. The stadium lighted up pink and purple at night which was a nice view - although the last two nights the stadium was lighted white.
The hotel is so central, the hop on hop off bus is only two blocks again and we did a two day ticket which allowed us to see the city in comfort. We walked to the places we wanted to revisit. We usually went down for breakfast around 8 am and did not have problems getting a table. It can get very crowded around 9. The breakfast was always good with choices of waffles (they now have 2 waffle machines), yogurt, fruit, eggs (must admit that the scrambled eggs weren't that great, but egg omelets tasted so much better (offered one morning), oatmeal, bagels, muffins, cereal, and pastries. It was great to have the daily free coffee and tea in the breakfast room and we took advantage of grabbing a cup of coffee when we came in after exploring the city.
The hotel offers a free shuttle (you need to be in lobby at 7 am to book with driver for that day) that takes you anywhere in the city, but does not do return trips. The Canada line is so close to the hotel (about 6 blocks) and was so easy (and cheap - although airport charges a $5 surcharge on top of the price to leave the airport). Return fare is $2.50 for Adults and $1.50 for Seniors. It was raining the day we were leaving and the shuttle took us to the train station which was so handy.
The rooms have a fridge, coffeemaker, and microwave. 2 bottles of water are provided in room each day. There is a coin operated laundry room on the 16th floor ($2 to wash and $2 to dry). The exercise room had table tennis (which was great for the kids staying at the hotel). The in room safe is located on the floor inside the closet and you need to bend down or kneel on the floor to use which was annoying the first time but I got over that very quickly.
Just a warning, there was major construction next door (we did not hear any noise) which might put you off when you arrive but once inside the hotel it was not a problem. My mother and I really enjoyed staying at the Hampton Inn and I would recommend this hotel to visitors to Vancouver.
