I arrived to a smile from Peg who immediately offered me a nice warm snack of salsa and chips yum. She chatted to me and upgraded me immediately as she acknowledged my diamond member ship. Lovely job Peg. The room is beautiful I had a long soak in the tub last night to ease my stress from driving and to warm through. Had a great nights sleep in a very comfortable bed. It was nice to be in a Diamond parking spot near the door too. Being a Diamond member is not about privilege. It is about being away from your family many nights a year. Stays with people like Peg at hotels like the Hampton in Utica ease some of the inconvenience of being away from home. I will definitely be back.

While the rooms may need a bit of updating, the location of the hotel is key for Utica. Easy access to the thruway and plenty of places to eat nearby. We stayed in late Fall, when there was a youth football team with families also staying at the hotel for the weekend. While the place was a bit loud and the team had taken over the lounge area, the hotel clerk apologized ahead of time and made it a point to let her know if we had any issues with the noise. She also offered us waters and asked her to let us know if we needed anything else. She was handling check-in and a few other functions at a very busy time, yet she was very pleasant and made us feel welcomed. Will stay again!

Stayed 1 night and it was great. Receieved free bottles of water at desk, small lay out of Hors d'oeuvre's in lobby, swam in the in-door pool with daughter, free internet in room, quiet night, comfortable bed and pillow, and hot breakfast the next day. That is exactly what I was looking for at a reasonable price.

Checked in after midnight. Clerk was very attentive, desert pastries to eat. Rooms were very nice, upscale for a Hampton. In the morning, went to breakfast and there was a woman in front of us in the hall wearing a tight fitting dress that she had to keep pulling down to not expose her private parts. She went to breakfast, clearly dressed for other action. No one would wear that outfit that wasn't engaged in that business...

Breakfast was normal for a Hampton, disappointed in fruit - I like the assorted fruit medley that most hotels had - this was a clump of grapes, some blueberries, and then apples and bananas in a holder.

The hotel is situated behind a Denny's which detracts from the appearance. Rate of $140 a night is too high.

Great hotel! Location was perfect. The rooms were very clean and tidy. The front desk clerk was very friendly and helpful . One of the best breakfast buffets I has seen in a long time. A lot of variety.

We took our two young kids here and it was fabulous. I would stay there again. The staff was great and we loved our stay! We went on Valentines night as we were passing through and it was super clean and the breakfast in the morning was perfect. Anything you could imagine and very kid friendly.
