“Nice people, great location”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Spent four days in the city this past week. In the past, we would stay at a more opulent property, but realized when in NY, you need a good bed and a clean room.

Here we got that and more. Although our room was quite small, it was clean, comfortable and updated. Free breakfast was a plus (probably saved $30/day) and the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. A special thanks to Jon who went out of his way.

Had to find a hotel at midnight and everything near La Guardia was booked. Found this number online and got a room for a reasonable rate. Room was small but comfortable, good breakfast, great proximity to Grand Central Station and airport shuttle. Not a bad walk to Central Park either.

Hampton Inn doesn't disappoint, especially this one by UN. It's clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. Free wifi and breakfast. And it's only a block and a half to the Grand Central station. For anyone who's looking for great value hotel in NYC, I highly recommend this one for both leisure and business travel.

Stayed here for 4 nights, a 25th wedding anniversary trip away for me and hubby travelled from near Liverpool, UK.
Found very easily, a short walk from Grand Central Station, and the Chrysler building, which was our focal point to return at night!

Check in staff very friendly and helpful on arrival, surprised no-one took our bags and showed us to our room, not that we needed it, as the lift was 2 footsteps away and only 5-6 rooms on each floor, just thought it's the norm in US?

We on top floor so no noise from traffic or surrounding buildings.

Room excellent, large bed, very comfy, clean duvet covers and soft pillows. wardrobe with free safe inside, chest drawers, TV, iron board and iron and plenty plug and USB sockets to charge phones/camera etc.
bathroom - roomy shower, shampoo, conditioner, soap provided. towels changed daily.
hair dryer and coffee machine in bathroom although did not use.
brilliant idea of a night light in bathroom to save switching on large light and waking other person up, as bathroom door opened facing bedroom.

Breakfast was great, cereals, porridge, toast, bagels, muffins/pastries. Make your own waffles, we loved these! Yogurts and fruit pots, fresh apple and bananas too.
hot options of cheesy topped bagels and sautéed potatoes and scrambled eggs/bacon on alternate days. Plenty juices and tea/coffee, although did ask for English breakfast tea, as most were Earl Grey or herbal sachets, they went and fetched some from kitchen no problem.
Tea and Coffee available throughout day/evening in the breakfast room, and if items run out, gladly stock them up.

Free WiFi great, as was free use of two computers in the breakfast room and free printer too, great for online check-in for our journey home!

Had a gym in basement, didn't need or use did enough exercise sightseeing. they were doing work in basement and got a bit noisy at times from drilling but wasn't a problem for us.

Would thoroughly recommend this hotel for service, inc breakfast and great location to Grand Central station for subway to travel.
Times Square, United Nations HQ, Trump Tower, NY Library, Bryant park next to library was lovely, all in walking distance. We used a free map from reception to find our way around and had all attractions marked on.

Would visit again.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor to avoid traffic noise and a king size bedroom, although hotel on a quiet str...

This hotel was better than expected - very clean, quiet, and with friendly staff. We had a room with two double beds and there was enough space for a family of four. This hotel is a good choice in Manhattan. Good location, free breakfast, nice rooms, and the parking was reasonabble.

I stayed 8 nights in May for my first trip to NYC. The room was seemed small but that was because it had a huge king size bed. The bed was the most comfortable I have had in a hotel. Though the pillows are not great. It's a great location for grand central station and I was able to check in late at night. Service was good, check in staff friendly and I was always treated warmly on my return to the hotel. The room was cleaned daily and got breakfast is included. I would recommend this hotel to any one.

Moved to the Hampton Inn having spent a few nights at the Grand Hyatt - don't waste money on GH, go to HI. At check in we were warmly welcomed by Joshua who provided us a room, even though we were there before check in time - I know this can be dependant on room availability but the fact he looked was great. The rooms have everything you need - free wi-fi, toiletries, hair-dryer, ironing board and coffee machine (quite rare in NY hotels). Erica was also very helpful checking on the car service reservation I had made to take me to the airport. Highly recommend staying both for business and pleasure.
