This is probably the nicest Hampton Inn i've ever stayed in. Booked a king corner room which has a balcony with views of the river. Room was very large had a couch, wet bar area and large desk that separated the living room area from the bed area. Bathroom had a separate sink area and then another area with a toilet and a larger walk in shower.
Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to spend a night in the room because it had a major smell issue. It smelled like what can best be described as dead animal/cabbage/natural gas. The hotel tried to clear it up with some febreeze but that only worked for about 20 minutes then I asked to be moved to another room. Unfortunately they did not have any more king corner rooms and I ended up with a two queen room. Which while it was your typical hotel room was actually never nice and clean.
The staff there was very nice and went out of there way to help me out with the room move.
The only negative with this place is the parking situation which i had read about previously and thought I was prepared for but was not. I tried to park in the garage upon my arrival and you cannot get in without a room key so I ended up having to back out of the garage into traffic and go around the block to the Hotel. There is a parking lot at the hotel however you can not park in it. There are three spaces for arriving guests to check in and get your key then you have to move to the garage. Parking is $9 a night. The Garage is shared with a ymca and a government building. Depending on when you arrive there are almost no spaces at all. If you leave in the morning and come back before 5pm good luck finding a space. When the IBM building is finished its only going to get worse. Also the spaces are super small and make parking with anything over a compact car a challenge.
