Stayed here in August 2012; this is a newer Hampton and is located basically at I-5 and s. 320th st in Federal Way (exit 143).
First off the location of this hotel is great if you want do anything in the Seattle or Tacoma area. It's closer to Tacoma of course but not that far to Seattle too. The hotel itself is very close to I-5 and as other reviewers had mentioned, we requested a room on the side of the hotel away from the I-5 side. It was perfectly quiet. I can't comment on how noisy the highway traffic is on the other side as we didn't stay on that side, but I can say there are endless amounts of cars passing by.
The room was great, and the breakfast area is nice and large, lots of tables and room to find a place to sit. Breakfast (included) food was like most other Hamptons I have stayed in - and that means very good to excellent. Beds were very comfy and our family of 4 slept great. Kids loved the indoor pool but wished it was a bit warmer (really, the pool temp was just fine, but they always like it a bit warmer if possible).
What is really nice about this hotel is that it is located in a spot in Federal Way that gives you great highway access, lots of restaurants close by (tons really) and you can walk to all of them if you like. Also walk able is the commons mall with many shops as well.
While we stayed here we went to Point Defiance zoo in Tacoma, and we also went to Steel Lake park which is 5 mins away and has a great playground for kids and a nice lake. Both were great.
We fully intend to return to this hotel in the future as it is a great spot to be near Seattle or Tacoma without being IN those cities (and paying the premium for it). For what you get, quality accommodations, newer hotel, great location, and the great prices, this can't be beat.
