“Great hotel”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

This hotel is in a perfect location for going to a meeting in the convention center. I used pool and fitness center and they were both very clean. Everything very typical for Hampton...nothing stood out to me. I would stay there again.

We slept relatively well, except for other guests that speak loudly in the corridors. Wifi was free. It has to be reconnected a few times during the weekend. Very good breakfast, excellent coffee and tea all day long in the entrance. Nice pool, but no adjacent change rooms. Well located to walk easily to most attractions in downtown Philadelphia. Concierge service not always accurate and not very helpful for a few things. Some free snacks in the entrance at certain times. We would stay there again because of the great value for money with the rate we got.

I stayed at the hotel 4/1 and 4/2 with my son and 2 grandchildren. I chose it because of the proximity to Independence Hall, the indoor pool, and the breakfast. We called en route to find out where the parking was located and after getting directions to park, we found out our room was ready at 10 AM on a Monday! That was wonderful news, so we took our bags to the room, and headed out for a day seeing the sights at Independence mall.
The children went to the pool both evenings; they liked that the best! They liked the cookies in the afternoon too!
Breakfast was very nice; it was crowded Tuesday, so we went a little later Weds. And, both children spilled their drinks and the staff was very helpful. CJ and Miss Pat were on duty that day.
The desk staff was also helpful, although we know Philadelphia well.
I stay in Hampton Inns often; you know what you're getting, the breakfast is a bonus when you want to feed children without trekking out to find something in the neighborhood and I think it's good value.
This Hampton seemed especially well run.

This is a great hotel if you are staying in Philly. The location is really great next to the convention center and near the museums. The rooms were clean, comfortable and updated. The facility had a nice gym and pool. Free breakfast! The staff were all super friendly. They even had a guy making coffee at breakfast, who also walked around and folded napkins and put napkins over food from the guests who stepped away from their tables! Who does that? Awesome staff, that's who! (This guy was working the morning of April 7th to give him credit)

Dear other Hilton properties...learn from this hotel and the Hampton Inn chain in general.

The front desk staff were extremely helpful and went out of their way to help us. The room was clean, although not the cleanest. We stayed on the eastern side of the building, but would choose the west side in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for the skyline view, otherwise you get roofs

The room was very clean and the hotel is conveniently located to the market and center city. We did not take advantage of the complimentary breakfast but indulged in the cheese and crackers left out in the afternoon. The staff and valet service were unimpressive and we were charged and extra $5 because we picked our car up at 3:05; the cutoff was 3:00.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I'm pleased the cleanliness and location worked well for you. The parking is handled by a 3rd party and I will pass along your comments to them. Their policy is 3PM-6PM is a $5.00 surcharge but they should have waived the $5.00 being so close to 3PM. I apologize for this.

My husband and I stayed at the Hampton Inn in Center City Philadelphia in March 2013.

Location – the hotel is centrally located and within a walkable distance to the heart of Center City where all the bars and restaurants are located. It is about a 15 min walk to Rittenhouse Square. However, a word of caution, if you are returning to your hotel later in the night, it would be better to take a cab. The cab ride would cost approx. $6 to $7. You are a few blocks away from China town and also Reading Market, make sure to check out both if you get a chance.

The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The person who checked us in was really nice and so were the rest of the staff.

They have both valet parking and self-parking in a lot close by. The self-parking is $10 lower and you might as well do it yourself after unloading your vehicle.

The breakfast was standard. The hotel was particularly busy that weekend with an event happening close by, resulting in the breakfast being really crowded, however, they did a great job keeping up.

A great place to stay to explore Philly.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the elevators.
