I can only echo the previous reviewers comments. Perfect attention to detail. Not sure if all Hamptons are like this, but finally an airport hotel managed to score full marks on my list. Everything the airport / transfer traveller needs: close to airport, free 24h shuttle, free wifi, free 24h coffee station with 4 types of brewed coffee, free breakfast, free international phone calls to ANY country, nice pool with neat garden to relax after travel.
It is located opposite the car rental depot, so ideal to leave the family at the pool while the car is rented or returned. Plane noise in rooms marginal. Airport not very busy, so even next to pool was not a problem.
I loved the fact that all my pet hotel-hates were absent: the pool fence has a proper child-safe latch; resident tour operator in the lobby made efficient arrangements to get us to Montezuma by ferry and minibus; Denny's and Casino next door; ice machine on each floor; 24h convenience shop in lobby selling beer, cold drinks, snacks and even a few frozen meals to heat in the room's microwave; each room has bar fridge, microwave, minisafe, iron and ironing board, proper detachable hangers WITH hooks, A/C is not operated by room key, so can be left running while out, portable base for laptop use in the bed, soap holders at both bath AND shower height, outward curved shower curtain to increase curtain distance while showering, 4 towels and extra toilet tissue without having to ask, - 10 out of 10!! Well done Hampton. We had to leave too early for breakfast, but they had breakfast packs ready to take along.
Can't remember seeing any plates or cutlery, so this could be the only negative, but I'm sure they will lend you from the kitchen.
