“Excellent in every respect!!! Book now!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

I grew up visiting family and friends in the UP and return to Marquette often. I was thrilled to learn the Hampton Inn opened just a week before Art On The Rocks and I booked a lakeview room for my family immediately. There are so many wonderful things to say about this hotel...I don't even know where to start! Let me just list them for you and I promise by the end my of review you will have your phone in hand and ready to book!

- Very friendly and knowledgable staff!
- Clean and well decorated, modern rooms (the lakeview rooms are breathtaking, I wouldn't book any other room!)
- Free Wi-Fi
- Free hot breakfast and a 24/7 coffee/tea/hot chocolate bar! As a coffee lover, nothing made me happier than making a cup of coffee to enjoy on the lake front balcony!
- The balcony!! The Hampton Inn offers a beautiful balcony overlooking magnificent Lake Superior. We ate breakfast every morning on the balcony and sat together every night to watch the sunset. This balcony sets the hotel apart from any other hotel in the city.
- The hotel is literally steps away from the lakeshore bike/running trail along Lake Superior.
- The hotel is just blocks away from downtown Marquette. It only took me 5 minutes to walk to downtown restaurants.

My family and I had an amazing weekend. The staff went above and beyond to make the Hampton Inn a home away from home! Book now!!!

Room Tip: Get a lakeview room! The little extra money is well beyond worth it!

We booked rooms here for our families for a wedding, and everyone was impressed with the service and the rooms. The staff was attentive and friendly, the building was brand new, the common areas were very nicely laid out and clean. They even gave the bride and groom a complimentary upgrade to a waterfront suite!

Marquette's first and only waterfront hotel opened for business on Tuesday July 10, 2012 and we stayed there the following Saturday, July 14, 2012. This is an absolutely gorgeous new property, beautifully designed and executed both inside and out; spaceous breakfast area; saltwater pool and hot-tub; well equipped exercise room. The hotel is part of a redeveloped lakeshore brown-field site now called Founder's Landing and very expensive condos are going up a short distance away to the south. The basement for what will be a mixed use commercial/residential complex is under construction right next door to the north. The hotel actually overlooks NOT the open waters of Lake Superior, but Marquette's still commercially active lower harbor, the entirety of which is enclosed by a concrete breakwall seen off in the distance. The view to the south is of the Shiras coal-fired electricity generating power plant and to the north is an abandoned ore dock. The only glitch during our stay was the WiFi signal, which provided access only to the Hampton reservation website.
Now for the expensive part: $231 including taxes for one night facing the water, in the middle of summer, on a Saturday night. That was with an AARP discount. It was a nice treat to stay at this new property, but as frequent visitors to Marquette, we can tell you there are many, many other good rooms in Marquette for well under $100.

This is a brand new hotel so I was apprehensive. No worries. We stayed here two nights, two days after it opened. The staff was very attentive but not overbearing, keep it up. Made sure that you had any information you needed about the area. Breakfast area, was great very modern, good selection and large windows offering a view of Lake Superior with outside seating too. We used the patio in the afternoon during our visit for cocktails. Our room had a lake view. The beds are firm, which I liked, with flat screen TV, refrigerator (a plus for medical supplies). Bathroom was spacious and décor very nice. I enjoyed the shower head location as I am tall. We did not use the work out room, which had free weights which impressed my son. The equipment all had TV monitors which the girls thought was great. A salt water pool with hot tub is different and unique. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and although the price was a little high for the area, the amenities of this new hotel are great. Look forward to staying here again.
