I've found Hampton Inns predictably good over the years, and this one was no exception. It's one of the moderately priced options under the Hilton brand, a step down from the Embassy Suites and two steps down from an actual HIlton. But it lives up to the Hilton brand in comfort, cleanliness and staff training.
The king-bed room was larger than expected, with a desk, sofa, side chair, coffee table and bureau. There was a small kitchenette area in the entryway with a sink, refrigerator, microwave (popcorn provided by the hotel) and coffeemaker. The bathroom sink was separated from the toilet/shower by a door, always a convenience when two people are traveling together.
The free breakfast was more expansive than usual, and changed daily, which is nice when you are staying for three or four days. Make-your-own waffles, cold cereals, hot oatmeal, danish, toast and fruit were available every day. But there also were a daily egg dish (scrambled, various omelets), meats and potatoes that changed daily. Coffee and tea were available all day.
The dining area was bigger than normal, so there always seemed to be a table available. The dining area staff were exceptionally friendly and on top of cleanup and replenishing the food.
Front desk was cheerful and helpful, even at 1 a.m. when we arrived. Small, functional business center.
The things that make it short of a five-star rating are few and mostly trivial:
--the free-wifi was spotty, so my connection kept dropping.
--there is a big-screen TV at one end of the dining area. The first two days of our stay the picture was on but the sound was off (thumbs up!) which made breakfast more enjoyable. But the second two mornings the sound was on, and at a level that couldn't be ignored (thumbs down). This is probably a personal quirk, and you may like TV with your breakfast, so consider this criticism in light of your own preferences.
--as is the case in many hotel business centers, the software on the computer hadn't been upgraded in awhile, so I had to jump through some hoops to access a pdf that had been emailed to me.
