“Really enjoyed it”
Reviewed 8 September 2013 via mobile

This is a really nice choice. It is an exceptionally nice new Hampton right on the water.

I may be biased as they upgraded us to a really nice suite. I'm an Honors member, but my status has lapsed to the basic level. So I was shocked when they upgraded us to a beautiful two room suite, with patio.

Wifi-good
Bed-very comfortable
Breakfast--very good
Good tv channel choices
Very comfortable overall

A little pricey for the UP in September ($179)

Enjoyed our stay.Staff was extremely helpful and courteous.The view from our room[2136] was lovely. Parking was convienient. The breakfast was excellent, but limited for us as we do not eat pork. The complimentary cookies a very nice touch and we enjoyed the waterfront walk behind the hotel.

The Hampton in Marquette provides a unique location along with exceptionally friendly and competent staff and clean and well-kept rooms. This Hampton is within walking distance of most of what Marquette has to offer.

We booked here again after a positive experience the previous year. We reserved a room with a waterfront view and upon arrival were told they upgraded us to a two room suite. We were pleased...until early morning when the noise below from the breakfast area woke us up. We flew in and got to Marquette about 10pm. We were tired and were hoping to sleep in the following morning before heading on the rest of our trip by vehicle. Sadly, we did not get to sleep very late. The chairs were being moved on the floor directly below and it was as if they were in the same room. The noise was unbearable. We opened the windows while getting ready in the morning only to have breakfast diners from below look up to see what we were doing. That was just rude and I understand no control of the hotel. The service, beds, cleanliness and room were all superb and we will likely stay again, just in a different room.

Room Tip: Do not stay on the second floor just above the breakfast area if you intend to sleep in the morning.

This Hampton Inn is probably one of the best in the chain. The location is spectacular: on the lake and close to downtown's historic buildings and numerous restaurants. The property is brand new, clean and spacious. The sheets and towels do not have the thread bare "used 1000 times" before me" feel. I do not believe there is a comparable hotel in Marquette. However, this Hampton Inn is about 30% more expensive than older hotels in less desirable areas. The premium price is worth the location and ambiance. The people in the area and at this property are super nice! The breakfast is a typical Hampton product.

Beautiful new location right on the lake in downtown Marquette. The location made it very, very convenient for everything we wanted to do in the downtown area. Right on a paved bike trail and easy walking distance to shopping, restaurants and attractions. One complaint is that they need to have bigger wastebaskets in the rooms. Small complaint I know but an easy one to fix as well. Beds didnt seem to be as comfortable as they should be for a very new hotel but maybe that is just personal preference. Would certainly stay here again next time in Marquette.

As a frequent traveler through out the Mid West and a Hilton Diamond status member, I was shocked that my option to stay at a Hilton property was over $200.00 per night. Even more, when I was looking for something to drink such as a soft drink, I was directed to the vending machines. In other Hilton locations that I have stayed at for much less, they offered a kyosk that had various beverage and snack options. I will say the location was nice, but again as a Diamond member I did not get the chance to enjoy the view becuase when I checked in, I was given a room with the view of the parking lot (and the establishment was not even close to being full). In summation, this location is very clean and new and the staff is indeed pleasant, but I just cannot justify the cost of the stay. If and when I travel to the area in the future eventhough I am a Diamond status member, I may have to stay somewhere else. Sorry!
