The Taos Hampton is not a resort hotel; it is fine example of what you hope to find when you book a room at a hotel chain. The hotel is filled with art and the nice Taos ambience.
The staff at the Taos Hampton is gracious and accomodating. Their mission truly seems to be to make you welcome and comfortable. From our very late night arrival to our very early departure 4 days later, every request or need was met with a can-do and will-do response. Extra towels - fine, late room straightening - fine. A glass of juice after break hour - fine. And with a smile.
We needed to add an unexpected night to our trip. Because we stay at Hilton Hotels frequently enough on business, this visit was paid for with points. Adding a night is not necessarily a simple process. When we contacted the Hilton department responsible for arranging these things, we found that the local staff had taken care of every possible detail in advance.
The areas that are not 5's: The location of the Hampton is not close enough to the downtown art district to walk there. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated but a bit tight with smaller windows. We have traveled a lot over the years, and experienced many "free breakfasts". Overall, the quality of most these breakfasts has declined. The breakfast at the Hampton is not an exception to the downward quality trend. The big diffence this time was the inclusion of a pre-cooked rubber-like "fried" egg, and pre-cooked petrified waffles.
However, a special treat was the presence of an accomplished flute player during the early breakfast hour. That was enjoyable and set the tone for the day.
The daily cookies in the lobby were delicious and when we left, we were given snack bags for the long drive home.
