“This was the best Hotel we have stayed in in the USA.”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

Not only was the location perfect for walking everywhere in the central Philadelphia area, but the service was the BEST EVER. Everyone who worked there was friendly, helpful, efficient and competent. From the valet parkers to the housekeepers to the front desk, everyone was fabulous.The rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent, different each day! We will stay there again and we are suggesting this particular hotel to everyone.

The Hampton Inn is conveniently located across from the new section of the Convention Center but it is also close to Reading Terminal, Drexel Medical College (Hahnemann) and shopping. The rooms were clean. Breakfast was good. My only problem is parking. Both valet and self parking are expensive and not included in the room rate. Wireless internet connection is free. There are also several computers in the lobby to access the internet for free. However, compared to other Philadelphia hotels, this place was a bargain!

Made a last minute reservation and was very happy with the Hampton Inn. The location was central to many places in Philly. The staff was very helpful, rooms very clean, and the breakfast was good.

Our family stayed at the Hampton inn, downtown, over the recent April break. From the minute we pulled up and had to park almost to the end of the block, we were greeted by staff who bent over backwards to help us a welcome us. The first indication that we would be cared for was the doorman/parking attendant who walked all the way down to meet our car and welcome us. Front desk staff was knowledgeable and always helpful, breakfast staff was friendly and accommodating. We were most impressed by the kindness of our housekeeper, Leslie. Unfortunately, on the 2nd day of our vacation, our daughter hurt her ankle and had a cast put on at Philadelphia Children's Hospital. When Leslie heard about what happened she offered her help if it was needed. The next day, slipped under our door, was a handwritten note from Leslie along with a DunkinDonuts gift card, for our daughter. We were so moved by her thoughtfulness and generosity!

We found the people in Philly, and in particular, our hotel staff, to be welcoming and considerate. We would most definitely return to this hotel, no question. A room that is clean and comfortable is only part of what we loved about this Hampton Inn. The staff really make the hotel great.

Only one small suggestion though. The hotel is hard to identify when you are driving down the street looking for it. How about a Hampton Inn sign nearer to street level?

Room Tip: Choose a room on a higher floor if you don't enjoy "city sounds".

I've stayed at this location twice in the last two years for both trips I made to the area. The rooms are clean, the location is quiet, and the front desk staff is friendly and helpful. They redid the breakfast area between my two trips and put in a small bar. I think I preferred the old, larger breakfast area. This hotel is an easy walk to the convention center, Reading Terminal market, and the hospitals on Broad street are just a bit further. Some evenings they put out the locally made soft pretzels by the elevators, and they're pretty tasty. The only downside to this location is the parking. The first night of the initial trip we tried the valet and the next morning was not good. From then on, we just go ahead and park down the block where the valet put us and walk back and forth to the hotel.
