I was pleased with the friendliness and helpfulness of the check-in staff. This was an average Hampton Inn -- you can tell it's been rennovated in the past few years, which is always preferrable. It was clean and the beds/amentities comfortable (what you typically expect). Towels were softer than most other chains though. The Breakfast was below par though, most mornings they didn't have bagels or ripe fresh fruit (which isn't really atypical). They had off-brand sugar packets, so if you prefer Sweet and Low, Spenda or Equal, you'll need to bring some. They have an average workout facility. Two treadmills, a bike (which was missing foot straps) and an elliptical machine. Nice big TV's if you like to watch TV while getting exercise. A small weight rack with dumbells was available with medicine balls as well. There isn't a whole lot to do in the area -- mostly strip malls with chain restaurants. Not much sight-seeing in this area. However, it's only about 10-15 minutes from downtown so it's not a hassle to drive down there if you want to see some more of Fort Wayne or some more local restaurants or shops (though most shops seemed to close around 5:30-6 during the week) Overall, if you need to stay in this area, this would be a nice place to stay. If you're in this area for business, I would reccomend it -- typical Hampton Inn accomidations, close to several strip areas if you want to eat something close and close enough to downtown if you want to make the trip.
