“Loved It - Perfect Choice!”
Reviewed 30 March 2008

I chose this hotel based on the favorable reviews here, and am so glad I did. The location downtown couldn't be better. It was on the end of Main Street where most of the action seemed to be; shopping, dining and the park were right outside the door. We were only staying in town for one night, and since we were arriving mid-afternoon wanted to be able to spend some time in town. It was very convenient to park our car in their parking garage ($6) and walk everywhere. As far as the hotel, it was just wonderful ... the staff was friendly and efficient, our room was above-average (widescreen HDTV, large bathroom with long vanity and plush towels, comfortable beds and great pillows), we heard no noise at all from other rooms, and everything was very clean. Just top-notch, really. We will definitely stay here the next time we visit this delightful city.

This is overall an excellent hotel. It is very upscale. It is spotlessly clean. The breakfast is far above average. They
had cookies every afternoon and mints available all the time.

The only problem with this hotel occurs when Larkin's (a restaurant directly across the river) has a wedding or other musical event going on. The bands are so loud that the room shakes and you not only could not possibly sleep in the room, but you cannot even have a conversation with anyone. So, if you don't want a lot of noise --- don't book a suite directly on the river.

I think they should warn everyone of this when they make a reservation. The only warning we had was a tiny note near the
elevator that said they would move your room if noise was a problem. However, the night we were they were sold out and had no room to move us to.

I was very happy with this hotel. My husband and I stayed here for four nights for business. The hotel is fairly new and looks great along the Reedy River.

The front desk staff was great upon arrival. We were offered an upgrade to a suite and when I mentioned concerns about being too close to the elevator - they gave me a key to check the room out. We were directly behind the elevator and never heard it once in our room. They were very eager to make sure we were comfortable. The lobby is small, but nice. The elevators were always fast. The business center had two available printers and computers and were very useful to look up area information.

The room was great! We had a microwave/fridge. The bed and pillows are amazing. Housekeeping did an outstanding job cleaning every day.

I never went to breakfast but my husband said it was fine - typical Hampton breakfast. My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is there was not a restaurant on site and we did not find a pool.

The location is great! It sits right in front of the Riverwalk - which is beautiful! It provided for great walks along the river and it is a very short walk to downtown dining and shopping.

I had some problems with being overcharged at checkout - but it was all worked out and overall we had a great stay.

My husband and I stayed at the Hampton Inn for one night last week and wished we had had more time to spend there. The hotel is perfectly located to explore this up and coming neighborhood and city. This is not your regular road side Hampton. It reminds me more of a boutique hotel - the design is lovely! We ate dinner at the newly opened High Cotton restaurant, which is next door to the hotel, and had a most excellent dinner. Would most certainly recommend this hotel to business and leisure travelers.

This hotel is not like the typical Hampton Inn. This hotel is far more like a "real" downtown business class hotel. Very nice modern lobby with an excellent location right on the river. It seems more like a Hilton, Sheraton or Weston than a typical Hampton Inn. It also has pretty reasonable rates. The only hassle is parking - they are next to a parking garage and there is a fee. However, that is typical of downtown hotels.

My husband and I recently spent two nights at the Hampton Inn Downtown in Greenville. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay! The room was tastefully furnished, immaculately clean and the location was very convenient to downtown shops, restaurants and performing arts centers. This facility is also located across the street from Falls Park on the Reedy River, which was a wonderful little park to see. The staff were very accomodating and welcoming, seeing to our every need. A parking deck ($6 daily) is located beneath the hotel, so we always had covered parking in a safe location. If you decide to stay at this location in the near future, be advised that there is a new building construction going on next door to the hotel, but we were never bothered by the noise of construction.

A little tip when visiting Greenville - be sure to check out Soby's on the Side Cafe, which is just two blocks from the hotel. The soups and sandwiches there are EXCELLENT!

what a nice hotel. i basically went for a weekend getaway to greenville to see the downtown area and enjoy the arts in the area. i must say this hotel exceeded in every detail. from the comfy beds to the welll supplied toilteries it has it all! the hotel sits at the base of reedy falls river park. it is a great little hideaway from the everday hussle and buslle of city life. the view from my room was great of the waterfalls and river area although i was not in an riverfront room. they are more expensive and most do not have a balcony on the river so they did find me a balco0ny room on the side with still a great view and little balcony complete with nice chairs to sit and watch the river life come alive! it is definetley a good hotel and will keep it in mind if i ever go back to greenville for a visit.
