“Best Hotel in Marquette”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

This is a brand new Hilton Hotel. So everything was pristine and spotless.
The rooms are large and airy , with a lovely fitted out bathroom.
We had a room with a view over the lake..

But you should know that the position of this hotel is not in the most scenic of spots.
On one side you have this factory and on the other side is this very large and no longer in operation, very large docks that could be regarded as an interesting sculpture or an eyesore !

The service is very friendly and the reception staff always had a smile on their face.

The only thing that lets this hotel down, is that the breakfast is served on cheap disposable plates.
Its a real pity, as the breakfast is fine, with a nice choice, in a very comfortable setting and you can even sit outside.

Thats the only reason I am not giving this Hotel 5 stars is the paper plates that really does not fit in with the total excellence of this hotel

Room Tip: Try and get a Lake View Room,

Ive stayed in many hotels and lots of Hampton inns, and this is the best. I have no complaints about this place. Awesome location on the waterfront and short walk to all the bars and restaraunts downtown. The staff was extremely friendly and very accomadating. Best of all the hotel is only a month old so everything is very fresh and clean. This is the third hotel I've stayed in Marquette an it blows all of them out of the water.

We decided last minute to stop for the night in Marquette while taking a trip through the UP. We showed up without a reservation and were given a great rate. The woman checking us in was kind and offered up some restaurant options for dinner.

This hotel was perfect for our family. We had a room that connected to the pool, which was great with a toddler and baby to not have to worry about elevators and hassel. The views were great and we were able to walk to dinner and a large playground. The room had a mini fridge and microwave.

Free breakfast with a view, free parking, and a brand new building. If we are ever back in Marquette we will stay at the Hampton Inn again.

My husband and I stayed at the New Hampton Inn on the Marquette Waterfront just for a night, and to see what we thought of it. Tracy was fantastic when we met her at the desk, and dropped everything to give us an awesome tour of the high points of this beautiful new hotel. The pool is advertised as "salt water", but it isn't really salty to taste and is much easier on the skin than the pools in most hotels that use clorine. The rooms were beautiful and bright - and we had an awesome view of the lake that we saw the first thing when we woke in the morning. When we went to breakfast the coffee was delicious (can't say that about most hotels!), and there were freshly made waffles, fruit, cereal, sausage - in all a wonderful breakfast! Again, Tracy was there to greet us (how nice to have someone recognize you!) and we can't wait to stay there when we go to Marquette next Memorial day weekend for our son's wedding!
Thanks again Tracy!

Room Tip: Ask for one looking out on the water.

The Hampton Inn in Maraquette just opened in July so, if you're stay in Hampton Inn's often, it's fun to see how they are building their latest properties.

Everything was new and the staff was already up to speed. We recommend it highly.

Also, don't miss the Lagniappe Cajun Creole Eatery. It's wonderful restaurant about a quarter of a mile up the road. Our waitress was friendly and helpful and the food was superb.

I am a frequent business traveler and often stay at Hampton Inns. This property has great potential but needs to iron out a few kinks. The property was probably 1/3 full the night I was there but the clerk did not even consider my request for a lake view room. She said she would have to charge me $50 more even though there were plenty of rooms available that night. There are plenty of nice hotels in the area so that's not someone who's trying to win the loyalty of my business colleagues and me. I asked for quiet room and she sent me down the hall to a room right next to the parking lot from which I could hear the sounds of people slamming car doors and talking as if on loud speaker. She moved me to top floor. Those rooms currently overlook a large dirt pit which is part of a construction site but that will improve in time. Was not pleasant to be awakened early the next morning to the sound of garbage truck and construction vehicles. The rooms are average size for Hampton Inns but do have some nice upgrades, especially the bath/shower. Breakfast was usual Hampton Inn fare which is reliable and good. The breakfast room setting is just spectacular with huge glass walls overlooking the lake. The property smartly has two elevators so that makes getting in and out much quicker. An ad on one elevator door boasts the fact that sheets and duvet covers are washed freshly for each guest. Isn't that akin to boasting that a property has electricity and running water?

This is a brand new hotel - and we enjoyed it.
Good things - new, clean, different from other Hampton's. Key scan entry is very cool. Cool shore artwork is perfect. Location is perfect (wish the weather was better).
Things to work on - our shower had toothpaste (or something else green) on the curtain and walls that wasn't ours. Other than that I loved our room.
Things to be aware of if your book - there are rooms in the lower level that lead out to the pool. The noise from the pool echos into the rooms. It booms and sounds like someone is on a loud speaker. We have kids, so are used to noise. However, if you want a quiet stay - don't go for a lower level room. It's also kind of weird having your patio door open and the whole pool area can see into your room.
The view is amazing. The breakfast area is situated perfectly. Sheets were crisp and clean. I love the hotel!

Room Tip: Depending on your level of quiet - choose floor 1 or 2.
