I think this Hampton is nicer than many of them (and I think most of them are quite good). The area where this one shines is in the lobby. The breakfast area is very large and open and almost a bit modern leaning toward having a sense of design. Usually, Hampton's are nice, but not leaning toward a swanky lobby!
Staff at the Front Desk were all very friendly and made check-in a piece of cake. Nicole was very funny and bubbly within the confines of appropriate.
The rooms are pretty nice as well. I would say that some of it felt a bit "plasticky" but overall it was a winner! The shower was exceptionally nice- much nicer than most @ bigger flagship type hotels like Hilton or Marriott. Overall, the bathroom was exceptionally roomy. The bed was comfortable and there was a very good TV. Hampton is about providing functional yet modestly nice hotels, and this property exceeds that.
The pool seemed quite nice as well and the gym was adequate.
Breakfast was fine. Nothing out of the limited service hotel ordinary (except the dried out, pre-made omelets), but it was presented very nicely.
I look forward to coming back here!
