“Hotel great...parking not.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

The overall experience of the hotel was wonderful; great room, great bed, good breakfast...but the parking lot was very full and it was very difficult to get in to the hotel due to construction (paving) of the lot at the entrance (the construction company had NO flaggers to warn people or direct them!). My car ended up getting hit/damaged in the parking lot, as someone parked illegally on a corner space in the middle (I was the last "legally" parked car in the middle isle). I didn't realize this until a mile or so down the road after I checked out. Hampton should have someone there at night to monitor the parking lot! and this probably wouldn't have happened.

We chose the Hampton Inn in Schenectady as our hotel for our wedding night stay based first on the location - it is located literally less than 60 paces from the location of our wedding, which took place at Key Hall at Proctor's. Every step of the way, the staff at the Hampton was on top of things - from responding almost instantly to questions we had via e-mail to making sure our stay was both enjoyable and memorable. I cannot say enough about the staff at the Hampton - they are phenomenal! We had a fantastic stay, and I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the area.

This Hampton Inn is fairly new and located right in the heart of downtown Sch'dy so you can walk to restaurants, drug store etc. In fact, 2 new restaurants opened in the past few months - an Italian and an Asian Bistro. We had dinner at the Asian Bistro, which was very good. Great value at this hotel!

The comfort and cleanliness of the hotel, in addition to the excellent staff, made this the best Hampton Inn we've ever stayed in. In addition, even though the hotel is downtown, the rooms are incredibly quiet. This will always be our hotel of choice when visiting Schenectady.

Frankly, I wasn't expecting anything more than bare-bones accommodations, but I was in for a delightful surprise.

The Hampton Inn, Schenectady, is located right in the middle of town and has a large parking lot for guests, making it extremely convenient. It is a new hotel, so it is very clean and attractive. There are numerous restaurants within walking distance.

We were greeted by friendly desk staff and check-in was easy. The biggest surprise was the lovely room itself. Spacious, bright, nicely decorated and very, very clean. I happen to detest those dreadful dark, printed bedspreads found in so many of the less expensive hotels, so I was thrilled to see fresh, clean white duvet covers on the two queen-size beds. (While fresh bed linens were available every day, I simply made my bed and told the maid I only needed fresh towels.)

The bathroom was, likewise, spacious and clean. Even the shower curtain was very fresh and clean (not a hint of mildew). The towels were thick, and the sink counter had lots of space to accommodate the toiletries of two people. Excellent lighting and a large mirror. A little coffee-maker was there, too, although we never used it.

We requested a small refrigerator be placed in our room, which they promptly did.

So, you've gotten the message that this hotel is new, clean, spacious, and we were very happy there. Now let me tell you about the free breakfast.

Usually, free breakfasts are fairly grim. Not at this Hampton Inn. It is served in a large, high-ceilinged, bright, well-appointed room. The chairs are upholstered (no stiff plastic chairs), and the room has a spacious, gracious feel to it.

The coffee/tea area offers a lovely selection of hot beverages, and the regular coffee was hot and very good. The juice/fruit area had a variety of juices (orange and cranberry...probably apple, too), as well as fresh chopped fruit mix and a bowl of whole apples and bananas. (Side note: I am usually a stickler for drinking only bottled water, but Schenectady water is really, really good.)

They had hot oatmeal (somedays a little too congealed for my taste), hot eggs (sometimes scrambled, sometimes an omelet) and breakfast sausage or bacon. You could make your own waffle, too, although I never did. There were little boxes of various cold cereals, peeled hard-boiled eggs, and a large assortment of pastries.

There was always an attendant in the room making sure tables were clean and the serving areas were well supplied and tidy. We enjoyed our breakfasts there very much.

Apparently, the Hampton Inn has the tradition of serving fresh, warm chocolate chip cookies late in the day. In this particular hotel, they were served around 7pm. I am not much of a chocolate chip cookie fan, but these were delicious, and it was such a pleasant way to end the day (actually, we'd take them up to our room for consumption later in the evening).

The entire staff...at the front desk, in the breakfast room, as well as the maids...were all very helpful and pleasant.

There is an indoor pool and hot tub, although we never used it.

One word of warning: it is difficult to see the hotel's driveway entrance, and you can only enter from one side of the street (you cannot make a left-turn into it). Otherwise, everything is a breeze and a delight. One of the nicest hotel stays I've had in a very, very long time.

The property is on the average side of the Hamptons. But its location, downtown and next to the Proctor, is its most attractive feature. The rooms are clean, no special features. The morning breakfast features both hot and cold items. I think the hot items are packaged and heat as needed variety. Main entry gate to parking lot left open the whole time we were there, only the side street gate required key card swipe for entry.

Had a wonderful stay at this Hampton , right on the main strip by little shops and small restaurants. a CVS a few doors down. The hotel is clean and quiet. My only down was the parking. They do have a small lot but you better not leave and come back late because you will park in a different lot down the street. We came down to go to SPAC and the trip was really quick maybe 20 minutes at the most! Thank you for everything Keep up the great work!
