“Hotel Fine. Location? Not so fine.”
Reviewed 19 August 2009

I don't want this to be an unfair review so please read in its entirety. The hotel itself was good. I had a NS room with a king. Room was fine, small but that's typical of NYC rooms. Bed was very comfortable and the entire room was very clean. There was free hi-speed internet in the room which was helpful. Furnishings were new and very nice. There was a large flat screen TV in the room that was a nice touch. They offered a free breakfast each morning that was great. A variety of cereals, fruit, danish, bagels, eggs, waffles and breakfast meats were available each morning and the eating area was clean and big enough to accomodate lots of guests. Now to my main concern - the location. The hotel is in Chelsea and I really liked Chelsea. It's a nice change from the hustle and bustle of the Times Square part of the city but really only a 15 block walk from those sites. The hotel is on a pretty dark street between 6th and 7th Avenues. It's pretty much the only thing there with the exception of an antique store and some sort of garage which is right across the street (and the not so appearling view from my room window). One morning, I had to leave pretty early to get to my appointment and found to my horror, 3 rats playing in the trash across the street, darting in and out of this garage. I've stayed in NYC 3 or 4 times and have never seen this although we all know they are there. The location of this hotel is just unfortunate. If you don't mind that sort of thing, by all means stay here. However, if you suffer from the same rat/mice phobia as I do, you will probably want to stay in a much more brighter hotel on a more populated street.

We stayed two nights at the Hampton Inn.

We made the reservation for a two Queen bed room but none were available when we checked in around 7PM. They offered us two rooms instead for the same amount, one with a Queen bed and the other with a King size bed. So that was fine with us.

Expect to pay $45 for their valet parking or around $25 for a nearby parking. We were able to park free on the street right in front of the hotel on Sunday but it runs only on weekends days and probably just during certain period.

The breakfast was great and the staff were very helpfull. I would definitly go at the Hampton Inn again.

This hotel is wonderfully located between Central Park and the Financial District. Many subway lines are on both sides of the block.

The staff was extremely helpful and accomodated all our requests. As expected the rooms are quite small but nothing unexpected. They were clean and well organized. There was never a long wait at the elevators. The typical Hampton Inn buffet breakfast was also as expected, nothing fancy but plenty of options were available.

There are many good restaurants nearby, both inexpensive and expensive. There is also a Whole Foods grocery store on the same block for those with more particular tastes.

All in all this is a great hotel with a great staff in a great location.

The Hampton Inn was just perfect for our stay in New York. We travelled with our toddler, and needed a little more than just the very basic. We had requested a crip when we booked the hotel three months prior, and is was sitting in our room upon arrival. And the room was clean and comfy, WiFi, Cable TV, a nice bathroom with a tub and more. We enjoyed the breakfast which was far better than expected, and served from 6 to 10 am. which is great if you're travelling with a toddler that might wake at any hour and be hungry at any hour. We found the staff friendly and helpful. . And with a rate under $ 200 for a double room it seems very hard to beat. It's a no-nonsense hotel that I would recommend to everybody - younger people, older people and families. There's no particular "New York" feeling about the hotel, but The Hampton Inn is situated within waking distance of almost everything - The Flat Iron, The Village, SoHo and Meatpacking, so why would you want to experience New York from your hotel? We will definitely stay there again.

My husband and I stayed at the Hampton Inn Chelsea for four nights in the beginning of June. We had a fabulous time in NYC. The hotel was great! It is located on a quiet street, around the corner from the subway station and just a block from some great restaurants and eateries. We always felt safe, despite coming back late a number of nights. The staff was very helpful with directions and any questions. The only drawback was that our room was a bit small. However, when in NYC, you don't spend very much time in your room anyway so it didn't bother us. Overall we had a fabulous time at the Hampton Inn Chelsea!

As another reviewer has remarked, not the prettiest of streets, but it certainly was quiet, no major through traffic. We were on the 14th floor. Room had two double beds so there was not a great deal of walk around space. My major beef is that three weeks before I sent a fax requesting a refrigerator, which it said you must do. Not once did I receive anything to say that would not be guaranteed. On check in it was noted we had asked for a fridge, so we were expecting to get one. We stayed there 7 nights and after the 3RD REQUEST on the 3rd day we gave up and realised we were not ever going to have one. On check out we informed the receptionist that we were not happy about that and she said to make amends we could have a voucher for a free night in any Hampton Inn. Breakfast was good value. If you didn't wish to eat the hot food, which consisted of either sausage patty/pieces of sausage, egg patty, corn fritter, there was fresh fruit salad, cereals, toast/breads, pastries, juices, soft drink, teas and coffee. It was located close to subway and within walking distance of several sightseeing
