“Comfortable stay in Midtown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

This hotel is a home away from home and an excellent value for a family or friends traveling together who don't mind sharing a bed. The hotel is right in the middle of the Theatre District, one block from the subway, one block from Broadway and one block from Hell's Kitchen and it's many restaurants. Rockefeller Centre and Central Park are an easy walk. My two sisters, my daughter and I shared a large, immaculate room with two very comfortable queen beds and great pillows. The friendly and helpful staff, comfortable lobby and all the usual Hampton amenities combined to make Hampton Times Square North stand out in this class of hotel in this location.

We were in NYC last week for a family vacation, and were very pleased with our stay at the hotel. The hotel dealt with a noise issue quickly and efficiently. Overall, the staff was very accommodating, the breakfasts were great, and the location cannot be beat.

The staff here offered outstanding service, compared to anyplace in the world, let along NYC a city not known for 'service with a smile'. I was amazed when I inquired upon checkin about when I should leave for my early morning flight to then arrive in the lobby to a waiting cab and greeted with, "I have the cab waiting for." Wow, above and beyond. The rooms are very large by NYC standards and were very clean and comfortable. Super stay!

My wife and I, along with our three grown daughters, stayed at the Hampton Inn/Times Square North in for two nights, part of a short east coast visit over a long July 4 holiday weekend. I should point out that my review ("Average") is price independent. In terms of the price paid, I would have rated it "Very Good."

First the good:

1. Price: Typically when my wife and I travel (alone) to New York, our stays are at slightly more upscale hotels, i.e., Hilton New York, W, Waldorf, etc. Because we were going to have two rooms, the budget just wouldn't allow us to stay in that strata of hotel. So Hampton Inn fit the bill; it wasn't a rock-bottom bargain, but its price point was appealing, especially considering the reviews here on TripAdvisor.

2. Fantastic location, 8th Avenue between 51st and 52nd. Extremely convenient to Rockefeller Center, MOMA, Central Park...even the Metropolitan Museum is a walk (albeit a little longer). Just as importantly, subways are nearby, both the 8th Avenue line, which can take you anywhere in the city, or a short walk to the 6th Avenue line. As in all of New York City, cabs are easy to find.

3. Staff Service: Extremely nice staff that aims to please...problems (see below) solved quickly, without excuses. No phony airs about these folks, just attention to prompt service. Very much appreciated.

4. Rooms: For Manhattan, VERY spacious. Efficient. Not luxurious by any means, but good beds, and good shower heads! (See Challenges below, for one concern).

Now the challenges:
1. Be aware...this is a hotel designed for families. So lots of kids...lots of kids...lots of kids. Nothing wrong with kids, but the lobby is busy...all the time.

2. The breakfast: One of our daughters is still in college; the town in which her college is located houses a Hampton Inn, which serves a great breakfast. Here at The Hampton Inn Times Square North, it's a challenge of numbers. The hotel is much bigger than the typical Hampton Inn, so the breakfast includes long lines if you're not there by 7:30, and the prepared food -- as you might expect when preparing budget food for hundreds of people -- leaves something to be desired. Breakfast reminded us of eating at an airport cafe on a busy morning...loud, bustling, and not much to write home about regarding the food itself. My suggestion is that if you want more than coffee, yogurt and granola, there are a number of delis and breakfast spots nearby. That's what we did the second morning.

3. Physical Condition: In need of a refurbishing of public spaces, i.e., decor, carpet looks a bit worn.

4. Rooms: Loud A/C in the room. It was about 95 degrees in NYC when we were there with high humidity. The air conditioning needs to account for worst case scenarios, i.e. the weather I described, and I'm afraid it didn't. Our first night, the A/C barely worked -- hardly cooled the room and actually ADDED humidity -- to the extent that the carpet felt damp and papers left out were damp, too. I do want to point out -- MUCH TO THE STAFF'S CREDIT -- they immediately removed the charge for the night and moved us. But even in our second room, and our daughters' room, the A/C was loud.

I consider the Hampton Inn a good value, and an ideal choice for a family, especially one with small kids!

Room Tip: I would suggest a room facing west; probably quieter, and a room above 8th floor.

I usually stay in Hampton Inn wherever I go and was surprised to find one in Timed Square. NYC requires a lot of walking so I really appreciated the free breakfast in the hotel lobby. The view was nice and the service was great. This is an amazing value compared to other hotels.

You can not go wrong with this hotel. I traveled with my mother and daughter and we were all very satisfied. The hotel is clean, the staff is wonderful and very helpful with any questions. Breakfast included hot and cold options which is a great way to start a sightseeing day. The location is close to attractions and subway options, which makes it easy for first time travelers. I will definitely return!

We stayed here for a week on a recent visit to NYC. This hotel is in the perfect location for anyone going to NY for the theatre scene. The staff were amazing - very friendly and accommodating. I was even sick one day and they went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable. It is a very clean hotel, and has coffee and other hot beverages available in the lobby throughout the day. We would definitely stay here again.
