“Lovely rooms, awesome breakfast.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Spent two nights enjoying this centrally located hotel that has a wonderful staff. The complimentary breakfast offered something to please everyone. My favorite thing was the luxurious bedding. I felt like I was stepping on a fluffy white cloud. All bedding, including the duvet and duvet cover were washed and replaced daily. I loved that extra clean aspect.

This was a last minute reservation for us, and we were so pleasantly surprised. We were trying not to break the bank for this trip and the Hampton Inn fit the bill. The front desk was helpful and nice. The rooms were small (it is Manhattan) but very clean and new. It was quiet and comfortable. We would definitely stay again.

Great location; close to Grand Central Station. Very friendly staff. Great breakfast; clean rooms. Overall a great experience. We were upgraded to the top floor, which was very nice. Quiet room. We really enjoyed our stay and were pleased it was within walking distance of Grand Central Station.

It seems that over the past 5-6 years more Hampton Inns are popping up around Manhattan, and I couldn't be happier. Compared to the Hampton Inn Times Square South, the location of this hotel is much better. Not only is it in a more residential neighborhood (and therefore quieter with nicer non-chain restaurants), it is also a new property and very close to Grand Central and the green subway line. The rooms themselves are just as nice as the Grand Hyatt! Sure, less amenities/full service hotel, but a block away and for the price, it can't be beat. I loved the modern bathroom and lighting in the room, as well as the plush bedding. The water pressure in the shower was strong and my room had cold but nice A/C. Was able to watch HGTV but could not at Hampton Inn TS South...less channel selection there, perhaps? I needed a room ASAP due to a mishap at a hostel and experienced great customer service from the front desk manager. He was very good at following up with me. The only complaint I had was I could definitely hear the people in the room next to me, as the walls are relatively thin. However, I would definitely stay there again.

Nice location in Midtown. We are big walkers, so walked everywhere from here. Very close to Grand Central Station and the first stop on the La Guardia shuttle. Same great Hampton room (didn't think the beds and linens were comparable to some of their other properties)but smaller because you're in Manhattan; good service, but not quite as "relaxed" friendly, because you're in Manhattan; same breakfast, but get there early, because you're in Manhattan ( and standing in line is not fun and they try to keep it stocked). Great value in a town where the rooms are small and it's hard to get a single room with two beds for less than $500 per night. That's a huge plus. In room safe. No problems with wi-fi access. Again, by virtue of where you are, overnight parking is not cheap but, there is the ability to self park within the same block for a reduced rate of $28/day (regular rate of $60)or you can valet at the hotel for a slightly higher charge. It's not actually a "self park" as an attendant takes your car but they have their own way of doing things in NYC.
The hotel is located close to Pizza Rustica ( around the corner) for a pizza to go and not far from the indigenous corner stores and local liquor stores where you can get fruit, snacks and drinks, etc. Fitness room was not huge, but functional. My only real problem was the fact that, since the rooms are small and it was very hot and humid in NY while we where there, the A/C was constantly on and blowing on you if you wanted a room temp of 74 degrees. There wasn't enough space in the room to diffuse it.

Dear Bcmufam,

Thank you for the thorough response! I agree, New York is a great place to walk! The subway is only one block away, but there are so many shops and neighborhoods in NYC that its more enjoyable to walk if you have the time. Hopefully we see you again for your next trip to New York!

My flight cancelled while I was travelling back into NYC from CT. A quick look online and I found a new Hampton Inn just a few blocks from Grand Central. As I said, new, clean and comfortable. The rooms are smaller than the other Hilton properties, but the room and bathroom layout allow you to spread out for work or play. A hot day in NY and the air conditioning was perfect. I was surprised how comfortable the bed was. Internet is fast and free. Great location for Grand Central (get the subway to anywhere), Chrysler building. Plenty of great restaurants in the area and outside the noise and crowds of Times Square, but a 10 minute walk if you want to go. Easy escape out the midtown tunnel for the airports.
This was peak family visit time to NY so the hotel was crowded with children which backs up the elevator and crowds the breakfast area.
Overall, very nice, Ill be back.

Good location on the east side near GCS Newer facility and rooms. But...On some of the hotest days of the year A/C was either too hot or freezing cold. Over holiday housekeeping had not serviced the room all day. Hallway noise and between room noise worse than most.
