This was my first time in NYC. My 24 year old soon and I were in town for a Yankees game and a Mets game. I had no idea where to book a hotel and I did not want to spend $400/night. After a lot of research on Tripadvisor, I settled on this Hampton Inn. I mad my choice based on hotel price as well as parking fees. As you can imagine, everything in NYC is expensive. We lucked out that the parking was "only" $20/day. It may have been where it was located. The hotel is located on the east side near the river between 2nd and 3rd street. However, we walked everywhere. We went to Rockefeller Center...to the Empire State building...Broadway...Madison Square garden...walked! It was a lot of walking but not bad. The best thing is that Grand Central Station was just 3 blocks away. We took the subway to the games and Coney Island for the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating contest.
The check in was fine. The guys at the desk were nice but not overly helpful. There were approx 8 rooms on each floor. The rooms were a decent size based on the reviews I read about small rooms in NYC. There was plenty of room for the 2 of us as we had 2 queen beds in the room. The bathroom was small but not too bad. Beds were comfortable.
Wi-Fi was fine. Not the fastest but it was acceptable
The continental breakfast was not too good. The pastries were dry. There was the standard stuff like yogurt and cereal. There was a couple of hot items that were just ok. I would give this hotel 5 stars but the breakfast was not good.
Overall, this was a good choice. Price was good, parking fees acceptable. I would stay here again
