Historical Traveller Reviews of Hampton Inn Convention Center Hotel
Disappointingfrom A TripAdvisor Member
OK but you could do better in Philly for the pricefrom dreamvac
Good value, good locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel is in a very good location for walking to the main attractions of Philly, and in particular the Convention Center. We had a large, warm comfortable and quiet room. We appreciated the good free breakfast and free highspeed internet access in our room. The downside for us, staying for a long time, was that we had no fridge or microwave in the room. There is an indoor pool/spa, which is a bonus although we didn't get time to us it.
The majority of the staff were very pleasant, with the exception of the Reservations Manager who checked us in - we complained about her unfriendly and unhelpful attitude to the Assistant Manager, who took our comments on board and reduced our nightly rate and gave us one free night's stay as compensation, which we were quite happy with.
Postive Experience!from A TripAdvisor Member
South Street and the Electric Factory (on North 7th) were a $4 cab ride away, or a healthy walk. Chinatown, convention center, reading market, and the Gallery were all very close. We had dinner at Maggiano's and noticed the Marriott which was our 2nd (and $80 more) choice. It was so crowded there, cars couldn't even get in the front entrance.
We were very pleased with our choice.
A nice hotelfrom Lonelycompanion
I don't really have any complaints about Hampton Inn. The location was good, the complimentary breakfast was nice and the staff did their jobs well.
And the price wasn't too high either.
Very goodfrom MD_MD
= the free high speed internet access.
- Breakfast was very nice.
= the terrible pillows - thin, lumpy & very uncomfortable (we've had much better pillows in much cheaper hotels)
Nice, friendly hotel but further than we thought!from flycatcher06
ll like it!from A TripAdvisor Member
I faced balancing a non profit budget and a volunteer crew of business management consultants accustomed to corporate executive travel. I feel I could not have made a better choice.
Juggling three cars in and out, valet parking was the only bump with some apparent disconnect between the front desk and valet--the walkie talkie system may be the culprit--regardless go to the valet don't call.
ve had for a whilefrom pxlbarrel
The room was very clean and didn't smell but the best surprise was the complementary high speed internet access. We had brought a laptop but weren't expecting the internet access so that was a BIG bonus. Twas nice not to have to find an internet cafe anywhere.
The breakfast in the morning was slightly better than standard continental breakfasts (it had a surprise hot dish or two every morning but nothing too special...still...most hotels give only danishes and bagels). The dining area was nice and bright and the staff were always there to clean up the spills and refill empty containers. Very friendly...just like the front lobby staff were.
The only thing that I wish they had would have been a parking lot on site. We did valet parking (the front lobby staff told us we could do self-parking but it would be in the same lot as the valet and we would have no in and out previledges). We used valet anyway since we didn't feel like driving around Philly. Taxis are pretty cheap so...not a big deal with the parking.
Checkout took seconds and our car was delivered to us within minutes.
We'd stay there again...in a flash.
I thought it was fabulous?from A TripAdvisor Member
The staff were very helpful and extremely friendly and were able to help us with any problems. Our rooms were lovely and the bathroom was so clean and spacious. The rooms were cleaned everyday and although the linens were not changed (WHY do you need new linens every day? What a waste of time and water) the beds were made (except for one time when my daughter's belongings were left on her bed - housekeeping left a friendly note explaining why the bed was not made).
We loved the facilities downstairs (pool, gym, vending machines) and all were functioning as normal. The free breakfasts were fantastic and there is even an internet station in the lobby. Wow!
The area seemed reasonably safe and has a lovely friendly diner across the road. It is a few blocks from the convention center, markets and shopping. Yes, there is an adult book store like 2 blocks away but the Marriott is closer to it than the Hampton and it doesn't seem to reflect badly on that!
In all, either they've got new staff or I stayed at the wrong hotel because I could not fault it and will certainly be returning if I'm lucky enough to return to Philly.
Top Local Tips for Philadelphia
use the subway We drove into Philly to attend a concert, planning to drive to the arena. As there also was a baseball game going on that night, we were told that traffic would be terrible and were advised to take the subway. The line ran right to the arena area and was quite easy to use, even with small children.
Yellow Bus Company Yellow Bus Company - excellent value, passionate Philly locals with so much to share.
Best bar If you like your bars a little rough around the edges but with spirit and atmosphere go to Dirty Franks. I think it is straight down the 'road' on 13th Street. Not for posh people unless you like to get back to earthy roots
