“GREAT!!!!”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

I stayed here instead of the convention hdqtrs hotel. What a good decision. The staff of this hotel is fantastically nice: courteous, helpful, patient with the three changes of cab pick-up times we needed due to airport delays that were being texted to us. We ended up hanging out in the lobby for several hours which was a lot better than sitting at the airport. This hotel has 24 hour coffee, tea, hot chocolate that is a great convenience. The fitness center is 24 hour. I didn't use the pool but it looked well-maintained. The complimentary breakfast is very good with choices beyond the usual stale carb loaded junk. Hot oatmeal with nuts and dried fruit was a daily staple, as were whole wheat bagels (fat-free cream cheese available), and a choice of four hot items including one breakfast meet. The eggs were dehydrated and unappetizing to me, but lots of people seemed to like them. There were four of the commercial-type waffle makers and sugar-free syrup and margarine as well as regular syrup and butter were available. The juice was not watery and there were pastries and bread for the less health conscious. Skim milk and whole fresh fruit were also available. The atmosphere was incredible for a big city center hotel: guests actually made eye contact and were nice to one another. There is a lobby bar that is open supposedly to 11:00 but it appeared to be open as long as there were customers. Reasonably priced bar food including a sandwich and salad were available as well as chips, pita and hummus, etc. The is a small grocery section with snacks, soda, ice cream (in cartons) and microwavable food. The house cola is Pepsi but no one complained about guests walking around with Coke cans purchased outside, which may seem very trivial but not to those who dislike the "P" product. There is free wi-fi everywhere and open access computers in both a partitioned section of the very nice lobby and on the lower level. Printing is available and complimentary. The room was nice, beds comfortable, linens changed according to guest preference and the flat screen TV channels plentiful. I stayed for a week and couldn't have been happier.

Excellent location, reasonable pricing and very helpful staff. The complimentary pretzels available all day were great! Front desk provided great suggestion for Chinese food nearby. The breakfast was better than the typical Hampton Inn fare. Only minor drawback was size of dining area available, but we were there during car show so probably larger than normal breakfast crowd.

Thank you for being OUR guest and writing a great story about the Hampton Inn Philadelphia. The Philly pretzels have become very popular and are really enjoyed by most guests. The location for this hotel is great because we are within walking distance of so many attractions and restaurants. Our bar is now open and we continue to get better. The associates really enjoy these type of comments because they see the hard work pays off.
Again, thank you.

Pleasant staff at check in, lovely spacious room, comfortable bed, hot breakfast (with fresh fruit) included all at a great price. Convenient location near Convention Center, Reading Market, Greyhound Terminal, what's not to like.

I have stayed at this Hampton In before and it did not disappoint this time either. I got a King bed room this time, and the bed was comfortable as expected. The bathroom was clean, the water was hot and of sufficient pressure.The breakfast did not have as extensive a selection as before, but had 4 waffle makers, pastries, fruit, yogurt, breads, coffee, and juice.

The exercise room is open 24 hours, but I was too tired to use it. The pool is open 8am - 10pm each day, so I missed that as well, but it looked like it was clean and maintained.

The staff is friendly and helpful - they even helped me once when another hotel had bumped me. The Hampton Inn staff did a better job of finding me a room and giving me directions than the other hotel that bumped me did.

The hotel is a short walk under the convention center from the Hard Rock Cafe and other attractions along Market Street, especially the Reading Terminal Market.

Rooms for my colleagues and I were clean and comfortable. Relatively low cost ($150) for the middle of downtown area. However parking was expensive ($35 per night!!). It was close to some great restaurants and across the street from the convention center. I would stay there again.
