“Great hotel and central”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

I stayed here recently for a convention and it was perfect. Attentive friendly staff, clean rooms and safe. It was easy walking distance to the convention centre and many other attractions. Definitely recommended.

Staff was helpful from valet to front desk. Walking distance (for my son and I) to a lot of things. We were able to check in earlier than thought which was very helpful. Didn't take advantage of the pool but breakfast area was clean and stocked. Room was clean and big enough for he and I, and he is 14 and almost 6 feet tall!! Besides other visitors letting their kids run around at all hours of the night, which staff can't really control, would stay again and would recommend.

I stayed at the Hampton Inn for 5 nights for a conference. The hotel has recently been renovated and it shows. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The business center is not the biggest but it is adequate for sending emails and printing what I needed. The breakfast was great. Yes the food was not the greatest, but they had fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, pastries and juice, coffee, tea and hot chocolate as well as waffles you make. There is coffee and tea available all day as well as pretzels and cookies. I had to buy asprin in their little store and a drink and it wasn't that badly priced, I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were comfortable and the suite came with a refrigerator and microwave. Loved the stay and would stay again!

Stayed for 4 nights, was able to check-in a few hours early and leave a little later than usual. They were always accommodating. The rooms are spacious, the bed comfortable, a good sized bathroom and shower, all clean. I was next to the elevator lobby and it was never an issue. The front desk and floor staff are friendly, helpful and visible. Breakfast was perfect for me, maybe a little sparse if you're there with the family. It's several Belgian Waffle makers, some cereals, fresh fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, sausage and different type of egg each morning. I stuck with the waffles and fruit because the egg and sausages are buffet style and kind of rubbery. There's also the usual English muffins, toasting bread and bagels.

There's always coffee available, and soft pretzels/cookies in the afternoons.

If it's important, the rooms don't have a mini-bar, and the TV is a standard cable package and not movies on demand or anything.

I'd easily stay here again.

Helpful customer service throughout our five night stay. Clean room. Comfy bed. Fluffy towels. Reliable free wi-fi. Reasonably good free breakfast (not just waffles, pastries and cereal -- included fresh fruit, sausage patties, eggs). Reliable A/C, iron, and blow dryer. Sadly, didn't try the pool or exercise room. Enjoyed complimentary WSJ & USA Today, water bottles, yummy afternoon cookies. They tracked down a lint-roller just for me. Next door to convention center, Reading Market, mile to Independence Hall, tour busses, and Constitution Center. Only criticism: Need to invest in higher quality toilet paper.

The Hampton Inn's address is 1301 Race St., but the entrance is on 13th street. Other than a sign many stories high, there is no indication of the hotel on Race St. There is no door, no sign, nothing. Very frustrating, especially when your GPS says, you have reached your destination. Finally we found it, and the welcome was warm. Parking is available one block away. The rooms are newly renovated and very comfortable.
