Quality of Sleep
Pillows (All Hampton Inns have this problem)
I stayed here for 3 nights in June of 2013.
Check-in: I was greeted by two very friendly desk clerks. They handed me bottles of water, and a stick of deodorant because mine melted in the car. They sincerely apologized for being out of warm cookies but this was due to my late check-in.
Room: The room was smaller than a normal hotel room. However, for a single business traveler, it was more than adequate. The desk along the far wall was very comfortable and convenient. It was very nice to have solid glass doors in the shower as opposed to a curtain. The room was kept very clean. The linens were in great shape. The air conditioner was very quiet and kept the room very comfortable.
The pillows are square and are very, very soft. Additionally, they are filled with synthetic material and the pillow cases are predominantly synthetic. The pillows don't breathe well and this causes heat/humidity to build up. This is a minor complaint, and is an issue I see at all Hampton Inns.
Food: The food cooked on-site was less-than-stellar. I won't complain too much because a warm breakfast is always appreciated, but the quality was below average.
Location: The location was great. I was able to walk to several meals. I heard the train, but it was never disrupting during the evening.
Overall: I'd stay here again in a heartbeat; I'd just bring my own pillow.
