Great hotel and staff

"My wife, daughter and I have just returned from our first trip to New York and absolutely loved it!
The Hampton Inn was perfect. The room was great, location ideal and all the staff helpful and very friendly. A special mention for Carlos who worked so hard but always had time for a friendly chat.
This hotel will be our first choice when we return to the city."

This Is A Brand New Hotel

"Yes, the hotel is brand new! The rooms are small which is to be expected in the city. The beds are wonderful! Especially the goose down pillows!! The location is great! We were there for a week on business but because we were in walking distance of Macy's and other attractions we were able to see some sights as well. The staff was friendly and helpful. Please note: When booking be sure to get a double instead of a single with a King Size bed. The rooms with double beds are larger."

Perfect location, terrific service, but problems with plumbing

"Perfectly located for sight seeing and shopping. I go to NYC every December to shop the sample sales in the garment district. I like to go uptown to Rockefeller Center to see the tree and swanky department stores, but I don't want to pay the high prices at the uptown hotels.

This hotel is very reasonably priced and perfectly located for my needs. The subway station is immediately outside the front door and adjacent to Herald Square. Macy's is right across the street. Many reasonable priced restaurants are nearby. It is literally around the corner from the Empire State building and just one subway stop away from Times Square! I stay in this area every year and have stayed at other nearby hotels (La Quinta on 32nd and Comfort Inn across the street) and this is the best!

Property is brand new - apparently it used to be a parking garage, but now a hotel. Rooms are small, but no smaller than typical midtown hotel rooms. Furniture, bedding, and amenities were all brand new. The staff is courteous and attentive. Very, very friendly and nice. Room rate also includes a hot breakfast every morning. Beverage station is open 24 hours - coffee, tea, and assorted juices.

Only problem was the plumbing. Water pressure is very low - hot showers, but very little pressure. Our toilet couldn't flush more than toilet paper. We called every day of our stay to complain. They kept using a plunger, but there was definitely something more seriously wrong. Toilet only worked on our last day there. We complained to manager and they gave us a credit for 3 of our 5 night stay. I thought it was really strange that they didn't move us to another room.

If you're on a budget and don't want to spend $500 a night, this is the place to stay - just make sure the plumbing works. I went with my mom and two aunts and we had adjacent rooms. They had no problems with the plumbing at all.

We felt safe and comfortable during our entire stay. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to see the sights in NYC, but doesn't want to spend a lot of money."

"I stayed at the Hampton Inn from 12/7-12/12, and was promptly checked-in without a wait. Our room was on the sixth floor, and while we faced another building, we couldn't hear any street noise at all. The two double beds were comfortable and we loved the three different pillow choices on each bed. The shower in the bathroom had a Waterpik showerhead, which was a nice amenity. Each morning we were impressed by the numerous items available at the complimentary continental breakfast, and appreciated the 24hr coffee, tea and juice bar. The hotel was less than 150 feet from a subway entrance, and was very close to the Empire State Building and Macy's. We didn't use the fitness room or business center, but both looked very nice. All in all, we were very impressed by the quality of service at this hotel and the convenience to all of the major attractions, at a price of less than $250 per night.

One word of advice: keep your hotel key away from other credit cards, Metrocards and your cell phone, as they will demagnetize very easily. (My aunt did not heed this advice, and was visiting the front desk for a new key every single day we were there, even though the desk clerk warned us about this upon check-in.)"

"Stayed in room 1401 the night of 12/11/08. Great view of the huge Christmas tree decoration in front of Macy's Herald Square. The room has 2 double beds, flat screen TV, small but adequate bathroom and was clean, clean, clean. The staff was so friendly. Free breakfast, with coffee, tea and hot chocolate available at all times. I was on a business trip, so I was not paying for the room, but $329 a night for midtown at Christmas time was a great deal."

Good Value!

"Excellent value - Hampton Inn has great weekend rates. The location is half a block from a subway station, one block to Macy's, and three blocks to Madision Square Garden. The room -we had two double beds - is small, as is the bathroom, but perfectly fine for New York city where space is at a premium. The male staff are very friendly. Rooms come with breakfast. There is coffee, tea, hot chocolate available all day. Nice - when coming in from the cold. I love Hampton's white duvet covers and extra pillows."

Reasonably priced alternative in Manhattan

"Hampton Inns generally provide a good value, wherever they are located, but this Hampton offers a reasonably-priced room, in a very expensive city. Like all Hampton Inns, the services are limited, and the rooms are simple, but the staff are very friendly, and the rooms are clean, as are the common areas of the hotel. The location is also very good, as it is easily walkable to Times Square and Broadway (10 - 15 minutes). All-in-all, if you simply need a place to stay while you explore the city, and you don't plan to spend a lot of time in the hotel (so you don't need all the amenities of a full-service hotel), this may be your best option, and it is priced right."

Not your typical Hampton Inn!

"This sure does not feel like a Hampton Inn! In fact, it feels more like a Hilton Garden Inn – a lot more modern and better furnished than a typical Hampton! A top notch Hampton Inn in the heart of Manhattan’s midtown and the rooms were a lot larger than other Hampton Inns that I’ve stayed at in NYC. Nothing can be faulted at this hotel and I’m pretty sure this was one of the newest Hampton in the city."

"Just back from the best trip. Hampton Inn fantastic, brand new hotel, situated in the middle of everything, fabulous pubs, restaurants outside the door, Macys and Empire State could be seen from our room window, and only a minute stroll away. Brian gave us a fabulous welcome and all the staff from the breakfast (which was a fabulous and free addition) staff through to the bell hops and concierge couldn't have done enough for us. The beds are so comfy, nice sized room, fabulous shower no shortage of hot water,flat screen t.v. with all channells and free Internet access. Fitness and business centre and local calls free. Who could ask for anything more. Thanks to the Hampton, We'l be back.
