I travel to Brookfield for work about once every other month--typically I stay in the Doubletree down the road but this past week it was booked full so I tried the Hampton Inn this time. I know that on the "Hilton scale" the Hampton Inn ranks lower than the Doubletree so I had my expectations set a little bit lower, however upon my arrival I realized that having lower standards would not be necessary.
The check in staff was friendly, informative, and very pleasant to speak with. Despite arriving a few hours before check in, my room was ready and they were able to accommodate my request for an early check in. When I got to the room, I was very happy to find that it was spacious, well appointed, and very very clean. The bathroom is a little smaller than a standard Doubletree bathroom, but I thought the hotel did a great job conserving space and making the bathroom seem larger than it was. The beds were a little too soft for my taste so I did not get a great sleep--I prefer a firmer mattress and I just sunk right into this one. Since I was there for work, it was nice to have the desk area that I could set up shop and get some work done, and of course the wifi was complimentary so that was very nice as well.
One of my favorite features of this hotel was how easily accessed it was. It sits directly on Bluemound Rd but its main entrance is off on a side street that had much less traffic. It was in walking distance to several dining options, but if you are willing to drive just a few minutes you can easily get to just about any type of restaurant you could want. It is just a stone's throw from lots of retail options as well if that is the purpose of your trip, or if you want to head to downtown Milwaukee it is very easy to get on the highway and make the short trip (20-25 mins depending on traffic).
I still prefer the Doubletree as it has in house dining options and marginally nicer furnishings, however this Hampton will remain a nice option in the future.
