Great friendly staff, wonderful "free" breakfast and very good internet access. The hotel is very close to the Space Needle complex; can be accessed from airport using the light rail plus monorail and a short walk.

I'm a big fan of this brand but the construction of this hotel seemed to be done "on the cheap".

The bathtub made noises when you stood in it for a shower like it was going to crack, and the soundproofing wasn't up to the standard of other hotels in chain. I don't know if it was because we had a hotel full of very noisy, inconsiderate people but the noise from the hallway (we were on the 4th floor) was very disturbing and didn't allow for peaceful sleep. Also the noise from the room above and either side was a problem.

Apart from the noise issues though our experience wasn't too bad here. We stayed 3 nights, the reception staff was helpful and friendly and the location was very good for our first trip to Seattle. There are some very nice local restaurants withing walking distance and buses right past the front door.

I would stay here again but would request a room on the top floor at the very end of the corridor.

Room Tip: Don't accept a room on the 1st floor between reception and the elevators because everyone has to...

Okay, so maybe the Hampton isn't swank. But the staff are always welcoming and the rooms are always clean and comfy (at least mine are).

And it's nice to have a large and talented grocery store a block or so away.

But the real selling point is proximity to the EMP and Science Fiction Museum.
That's why I always choose the Hampton over the Tyrell Corporation penthouse.

Besides, at the Hampton I never worry who's using the elevator at night.

Paid about $300 for a king suite. It was on the ground floor, a long long walk down many winding halls and an elevator ride from the lobby. Don't open the curtains, they look right onto the parking lot and garage door and dumpster bay. The dumpster truck came before 8 am on Saturday morning, and came back later and noisily dumped about a half dozen dumpster loads, off and on up to about 10 am. This would be heard at all the rooms facing the middle. The room above me had noisy people who stomped around which was very audible in my room, so there is poor sound insulation. The only AC is in the bedroom so the large living room and kitchen area was hot and stuffy in the evening, and the AC in the bedroom was struggling to cool down after a hot day. The hotel was packed for multiple events and the narrow hallways were full of people going back and forth. And the stomping noise upstairs continues nonstop, very audible.

The Pros: close to the Space Needle, Chihuly Glass Garden, and monorail. Grocery store and several good restaurants rights across the streets. Roomy enough to sleep a family in one suite.

The Cons: Only one bathroom in our suite, and the tub was dirty. The AC unit is so loud that it kept us awake at night, and one bedroom didn't have AC at all and was hot as an oven. The breakfast was OK -- the eggs were powdered (ew!) and seating was limited.

Beautiful and clean. Greatest mattress. Great free breakfast and snacks. within walking distance of space needle and wharf.Friendly staff. It's all you could ask for. I will look for Hampton inns where ever I go. Couldn't have been better. I always take good reviews with a grain of salt but truly could not find anything wrong with this hotel at all.

A party of ten had a two night stay at the Hampton Inn. It was all you could ask for. A short walk to the Space Needle and monorail. Several restaurants and a grocery nearby. The continental breakfast was good and the afternoon cookies fantastic. Most importantly, the staff was as friendly and accommodating as possible. I would not hesitate to stay again. A+ service.
