We stayed here ironically during the same weekend the Antique Roadshow was in town, so the hotel was packed with attendees for that event. The rooms have been nicely upgraded, except for the bathrooms. There is no fan in the bathroom to avoid fogging up the mirror, and the hairdryers are some of the smallest, least powerful I have encountered. The hotel is motorcycle friendly - they let us park our bikes under the covered entryway instead of in an uncovered parking spot. The front desk staff at night is friendly, as well as the morning breakfast crew. The breakfast is standard Hampton Inn (waffle maker, eggs, cereal, bagels, etc.) and there is no evening happy hour. The location is central to the major highways and the river. There aren't any nearby restaurants (within walking distance) that are open past 10pm so if you arrive late your only option is pizza delivery (which was not very good). Be sure to ask for a room that isn't facing the highway since you hear highway noise all night long no matter where you are, but at least if you're facing away from it the sound will be somewhat minimized.
