I spent 1 night at the Hampton last week. I usually stay at the Hampton by the Ellenton outlets but decided to give this one a try. As a business traveler, I try to stay near the airport or close to the account I’m visiting.
Very nice hotel. Seems a little harsh to the eye from the exterior based on the architectural design. But, don't let that stop you. The parking lot features several charging stations for electric cars, designated parking for eco-friendly cars, and HOV parking for cars with 2+ passengers – all very cool and not very common. I was excited to park in the HOV parking since I generally travel alone.
The interior is very modern and sleek – great colors! The lounge area is used for breakfast and the evening manager’s reception. You could use the manager’s reception as a light dinner – chicken tenders, chips & salsa, other finger foods, beer, wine, soda. This is a really nice plus. Some Hamptons do this but not all.
The breakfast was great – hot choices along with cereal, toast, fruit, yogurt, muffins, choice of juice, milk, coffee. Some say it’s “nothing to write home about” but I’ve always enjoyed their breakfast. Who really has a gourmet breakfast everyday anyways??
My room faced University Pkwy and I was on the 3rd floor. I heard absolutely no road noise, or airport noise for that matter. I had a standard, yet spacious, King room with all the usual amenities. My only complaint (as it is with every Hampton) is the toiletries but I’ve learned to travel with my own. The room was fairly clean; I could nit-pick the bathroom but…
Staff was very hospitable and lots of smiling faces. We got a recommendation for Barnacle Bill’s Seafood – which I would recommend for dinner.
