“Great value, great location, great everything”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This was our first time in New York and we thought that this was a great hotel. It is not on an man streets so the noise level is not that bad. It is supper close to Grande Central Station which we used for most of our travel around NY, but still close enough that you could walk to Times Square. One night we walked back to the hotel from Central Park stopping in all the stores along the way. The free morning breakfast was fantastic.
I would say that this is a family hotel lots of families. We asked for a room with a view when we booked and got the 18th floor. It was a corner room so it was huge. I know for sure we will be staying here when we come back.

I stayed one night at this hotel in July 2014. I enjoyed 9 nights in NYC almost all of them in Hampton Inns and I stay at Hampton Inn most of the time I travel. I found this particular location to be small to the point of claustrophobic.

We had a king room on a high floor at the end of the hall. The room was the size of a postage stamp. Of all Hampton Inns I've stayed at this was by far the smallest room.

The location was not to my liking either. Not much going on around there. Thankfully I stayed one night.

The room was clean and comfortable, the service was fine. If you have to stay in this area, this hotel is a fine choice, just know that the rooms and the lobby are teeny tiny.

I went on a Business trip to NY and stayed here for more than a week. The hotel is really nice and they provide free breakfast also. They got good recreation center. I like the location of this hotel as its main good point. It is located near Grand central and even very near to Times Square. But I think they should have more variety in Breakfast options. There were very repetitive in that.

Room Tip: I was on the top floor. So less noise and view was great...

I chose this hotel for a few reasons- its reviews, its location and its price. I also wanted a two bedded room as I was travelling with my sister.
It didn't disappoint. The hotel was easy to find and the room was clean, spacious enough for a four night stay and the beds comfortable.
On check in we were allocated a room without a city view, which was disappointing, as I had booked a city view room. I also phoned to confirm my booking two days before we arrived so I am not sure why there was any confusion. Unfortunately, as we arrived later in the day we did not get the room I booked but we were moved rooms the next day. The new room had a bit of a view but certainly not worth the money and I don't really thick you could call it a city view.
That aside our stay went well. The room was cleaned everyday and we found the air conditioning worked well.
Breakfast was enough for us. You can make fresh waffles and tea/coffee. Other usual breakfast foods and drinks were available and it was a convenient way to start the day. It could be busy from 8.30am but we could always get a table.
The staff on reception were polite and helpful. Our bags were stored securely after we checked out so we could still sight see on our last day.
As others have mentioned the hotel is located within walking distance to many attractions and very near Grand Central Station.
I would definitely consider staying here again.

Room Tip: Don't pay extra for a city view unless its the top floors and facing front. (floor 20/21)

The hotel is located on the east end of Manhattan far enough away from the tourist locations to make food affordable. The room was clean, the staff friendly and the noise level was low inside and outside the hotel. My only complaint is the bathroom doors. The doors are sliding doors that are not inside the wall. This means there's a gap between the door and the wall and you can see into the bathroom from the outside. The gap in my room faced the mirror which reflected into the shower. There are no restrooms in the lobby so if you're going to eat there and need to wash your hands or do any other restroom related activity then do it before you go downstairs.

There is a complimentary 24 hour wifi service but you would have to pay if you wanted longer use.

Overall, it was a decent place to stay with reasonably priced restaurants and shops near by.

Really enjoyed my brief stay at this property. It's the usual, consistent fare from Hampton and I appreciate that-especially when traveling to NYC. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Great restaurant recommendations. Room was clean with great decor and a nice size for NY. The location is also fantastic. Close to Grand Central Station, good shopping and the UN. Would definitely stay here again.
