“A Must Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

When you are in the Bradenton area and need a hotel this is a must stay. My husband and I have been passing this building for 14 years on our way to my sons. We witnessed the building going into disrepair and finally boarded up. It is now the beautiful Hampton Inn & Suites Downtown Bradenton Historic District and has been fully restored. The restoration process left as much as possible as it was when build in 1925. It exceeded our expectations in both the staff and the new appearance. When we walked into the breakfast area on Christmas morning the TV’s picture was a blazing fire place and playing carols. Gary, the breakfast caretaker, visited all the tables and wished the guests a Merry Christmas and safe journey in their travels. As soon as you enter the hotel you feel welcomed. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. They welcomed any questions you had about the area or the new hotel. The history of the building is a walk back in time. Although the hotel does not have a restaurant there are many within walking distance. This will be our hotel for a good night stay when traveling to Bradenton for visits. We highly recommended this Hampton Inn.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms have great views

What a lovely review of the hotel, especially on Christmas morning. Our staff realized many guests travel over the holidays to perhaps visits sick friends or relatives. It is important that we make all of our guests feel "at home" when they stay at our historic downtown hotel. We will pass on your kinds words to Gary and the entire staff. We hope to see you soon, with many visits to your sons who live in the area!

Beautiful hotel with a superior staff. Situated close to a very charming section of downtown Bradenton yet within minutes of the airport. The nearby restaurants were very superior and I would love to return.

This historic 1925 hotel was recently redone by Hampton Inn. The lobby is beautiful. It has the original flooring and recreated, wood ceiling beams with hand-painted stenciling that replicates the original lobby. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and mine had a gorgeous view of the Manatee river.
The staff was very friendly, courteous, and helpful. The location is very convenient to downtown Bradenton and within walking distance of several good restaurants.
Breakfast is included, but I cannot give a first-hand review as I skipped it. My colleagues who also stayed there gave the breakfast a big thumbs-up.

The Hampton Inn in Bradenton is a remodeled Historic building. The craftsmanship of the wood work in the lobby gave that throw back in time feeling. The room was very clean and spacious with a nice view. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. I will be staying again on future trips.

And not meeting the ghost of Al Capone in the haunted elevator.

I'm sitting here with my hands suspended over the keyboard (the online reviewer's version of speechless) because no superlative feels adequate to describe this property and the staff.

So let's go with details: Planetarium and South Florida Museum, Manatee Art Center, the DaVinci exhibit at the Convention Center (or whatever it's called) and the Manatee River all within a block...
There's also a fearsome sign outside the Bradenton Police Department section of the Convention Center (or whatever it's called) warning that you're in a laser testing zone. (Since it's not the Sheriff's Department, that's laser with an 'L', not a 'T'.)

And your life will be forever changed if you order out for pizza and garlic rolls from Bella Mia Pizzeria. Especially if you have a dental appointment the next morning.

it's just too, too wonderful and I'd like to ask a favor.
Please let this be our little secret. We don't want Thundering Hordes ransacking something this good.

Room Tip: If I tell you that the corner rooms are really special, you have to promise not to book them in Febr...

We loved not only the location of the hotel, but the layout of the room! The coffee service was NOT in the bathroom, and the whole room was very very comfortable. Would stay here every time I come to the area! Just a short walk down the street and around the harbor we found Pier 22 - a great restaurant! The streets were decorated for the Holidays and families were walking around and enjoying it all. We did the same!

In the middle of downtown Bradenton sat a lovely old hotel which sat vacant for years, Hampton Inn refurbished it beautifully keeping the integrity of the Old Architecture and details and made everything look fresh and new, they did a great job. It is walking distance from downtown, with lots of stores and restaurants.
