This is literally the first time I have ever written a review for anything, but I was so impressed with the way the staff (Charlene and Pat) handled a very difficult situation that I just had to write and give them the very high marks they deserved. Their hotel amenities are very good, but their service was excellent. We had... More

I have never stayed at a Hampton Inn before. By a stroke of luck we were able to book a reservation for this hotel online, in a rush & sight unseen. Initially I thought it was a little too expensive, but had no other choice or option. It was the only hotel we could find while trying to evacuate for... More

Was upgraded to a King Suite which was nice using my Hilton Honors Card but felt a little uneasy walking around downtown after dark. Many Homeless Panhandlers walking around. Apparently the city allows them to sleep in the allyways around the hotel.

I forgot my charger and hotel did not keep such basics. I have stayed in some international locations where this is provided and put on your bill... More

Thank you for sharing your feedback. We take matters such as this very seriously. I would be remiss, however, if I did not mention that our investigation into the events are slightly different than your account of the facts. For example, our records show that we did perform a full investigation. We would like to discuss the matter directly so... More

The hotel was clean and accommodating. Although I did not personally eat there many of my colleagues did and loved it. The staff were all helpful and very friendly. Lost my receipt upon check out and I called and quickly got an email with my receipt. Great location !

Our hotel room was fairly clean except for the carpets, stained and looked a bit dated. The room was quiet, breakfast was good and staff was nice. I would stay there again. Great downtown location to the restaurants and bars.
