“This is a Hampton Inn?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

Our room was so lovely, spacious, and well-appointed that it seemed more like a five star hotel. This Hampton Inn is brand new, and it is far more luxurious than any Hampton Inn I have stayed in before. Great location,immaculate, large room with a very nice kitchen area with sink, refrigerator/freezer, microwave and coffee maker. Deluxe bed/linens, well-designed elegant bathroom. Free Internet. Very friendly and welcoming staff. $18 for parking turned out to be a wise decision as Portsmouth has little available parking. The valet parking lot is steps from the lobby door which makes retrieving articles from your car very convenient, and the valets were cheerful about our doing so. We left our car with the valets for the duration of our stay as everything in Portsmouth was within walking distance, but you can take your car out as much as you want. Even though we checked out of the hotel in the am, we were told that we could leave our car until 8 pm if we wanted. Good deal! The Portsmouth Hampton Inn is a great place to stay.

We stayed here over a Saturday night as a quick getaway from home. I found most downtown hotels were booked or close to it, and jumped on a one room suite for less than many other hotels regular rooms. Yes staying downtown is more expensive than just outside of the city, but the hotel is in the perfect location to walk the great streets of Portsmouth. Walk to all the restaurants, bars, and shops, and the walk to the coffee shops and waterfront in the morning.
The hotel was only 2 weeks old so we expected clean, and it was indeed immaculate. There was also no unfinished areas or final touches we saw - everything was perfect. The room was exceptional and laid out in design that has become my favorite with bed at the end of the room, center separation desk, and couch and tables. The center TV can be angled for either the bed or the couch.
Bathroom was excellent with good lighting, nice glass door shower.

The parking is only valet currently at $18/night easily charged to room. The valets were exceptionally friendly which I feel was both by good hiring, and good management. They specifically say feel free to come and go as much as you want as they don't want you to feel your car is trapped. It was very easy to pull into the covered hotel entrance, grab our belongings which they are also eager to help with only if needed, and head inside. Unusual setup for a Hampton but this is a downtown location with minimal space so the valet was a necessity and quite nice.

There really isn't anything bad to say about this hotel. If I had to get picky, I wish they had been able to find room to make the indoor pool about 6 feet longer. Although my kids weren't with us, the 2 kids in the pool seemed plenty content though. The pool does have an aqua chair for the disabled.

This was my first trip to Portsmouth and when we return, there is no point in looking anywhere else. The Hampton was excellent. Although it is pricey for a Hampton Inn, the hotel felt much more upscale. Combined with an excellent location and better price than others in the area, I also give it a high rating for value. I do hope they keep it that way.

My trip to Portsmouth for my bachelor party was great! The new hotel, amazing location and great customer service helped make the event. From managements help with booking errors (hotels.com fault) to great places to eat and attractions to see the staff is excellent. Highly recommended

Open just a few weeks, this hotel is quite different from most Hampton Inns. Large open lobby with a small bar. Everything sparkles. Great free breakfast with hot as well as cold items. Rooms are large and the beds were comfortable. Hotel is well located within walking distance to all of the restaurants, shops and sites.

This Hampton in was one of the nicest ones that we have stayed at. It is conveniently located just far enough from the city center that there is hardly any noise.
The room was very spacious and clean. Employees and Manager were very accommodating and helped us out with any concerns or questions that we could have.
The valet is currently $18 a night but you can come and go as you please. Average wait for valet was about 1-3 min or less. Well worth the money, while we were there the car was taken out maybe 2 to 3 times considering that the down town area is a 5 min walk from hotel. We would definitely stay here again!

We had a great stay! My boyfriend and I came up for the night and didn't book a hotel in advance. We wanted something close to everything and that was reasonably priced. This was all of that! And it is brand new! The rooms are immaculate and big. The general manager who checked us in was very accommodating. He gave us some great suggestions on bars to hop around too. We'll definitely come back and stay at the Hampton Inn.

Stayed here last week with family for an overnight trip. Saw the other good reviews on TripAdvisor. They were only opened for about 3 weeks at that point. I was very surprised how nice this place is. It's brand new of course so that helps. Staff was very friendly and accommodating as we checked in early to take the ferry trip to the Isles of Shoals. Great little saltwater pool that was very fun for my younger boys. Room was very nice and had some really "boutique design" especially in the lobby. Decent free breakfast too.
