Although in the past when visiting Fargo/Moorhead I've stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn, this time I stayed at the new Hampton on the west end of Fargo on the south side of the interstate. I am glad I did. Whether you are a business traveler or looking to put your family up for a night or two, this is a great lodging option.
The hotel is just off a major interchange and located in a new area of offices and apartments. Finding the hotel was easy and there is plenty of free parking. This Hampton is new, and is closer to an HGI than one of the old-style Hamptons. I was greeted by a very pleasant person and my check-in could not have taken more than a minute or so. Adjacent to the front desk was a well-stocked pantry (you cannot buy beer or wine...you have to go to a liquor store). The hotel has a nice indoor pool and small fitness center just down the hall from the lobby.
I had a studio king room, sort of an over-size room with a large work area in the middle and a sofa at one end. The room was spotless, from the bath to the carpeting to the duvet and bedding. The room was well-equipped with a mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee pot (my only gripe is that they don't have real half-and-half in the room, just that powdered stuff).
The wireless Internet was fast enough for my needs. In the lobby breakfast area the hotel has a couple of iPads set up for guest use, apparently in lieu of a desktop PC (I couldn't find a business center, or a PC or printer).
I had a quiet and comfortable night's sleep and although I did not have breakfast at the hotel, be aware that this Hampton offers a very nice (and free) breakfast buffet with a few hot items and what I'd call a deluxe continental breakfast selection. And really, really good coffee.
On any basis you care to rate this property - whether location, facilities, upkeep, or value - this Hampton property was first rate in all regards. And the staff were particularly friendly and helpful. I am a picky, long-time Hilton Diamond HHonors member, and I can honestly say that this is one of the better/best Hilton-branded properties I've stayed at. I highly recommend it to you!
