We chose this Hampton because of its location and bases on a prior stay here about 8 years ago. While nothing went terribly wrong, this was not a typical Hampton experience for us.
The hotel was under-staffed and the front desk clerk was clearly stressed - but thankfully not rude. We were upgraded to a suite, so that was an appreciated bonus. However, our request for extra pillows went unfilled.
The room had very worn furniture, including a chair that barely had any cover left. There were a variety of other nuisances - blinds that wouldn't fully close, stiff and loose bathroom fixtures, and un-vacuumed halls. There are renovations underway, so if you stay here request a renovated room.
In the future, we will probably seek other Hampton (or similar chain) options.
