I travelled to NYC with two young children to see the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. We arrived well before our check-in time and although our room was not yet ready, the front desk staff made us feel welcome by allowing us to check our bags free of charge, help ourselves to beverages, use restrooms, etc.
Parking was offered at a discounted rate ($35) a few blocks away, just be sure to have the front desk stamp the ticket given to you at the garage. They did not charge the usual extra fee for a large vehicle (I drive a minivan).
The room itself was very clean. We were on the 17th floor with a "city view". I didn't necessarily find the view to be anything spectacular, although we were only in the room at night, so maybe it looked neater during the day.
We were up and out of the hotel by 6 am to go see the parade, so we missed the free breakfast, but we were able to grab a brown bag breakfast and some hot chocolate , yogurt, muffins, etc to take with us. We checked out before leaving for the parade, but again we checked our bags with the front desk... we spoke to several other families at the parade whose hotels charged $10+ per bag to hold them, so thanks again to the Hampton Inn for allowing you to do this for free. Another plus was that it was an easy walk to the Canal St subway stations on both the red and blue lines.
The only negative/warning I would give to other travelers is to be aware of heavy traffic in front of the hotel, as it is right by the entrance to the Holland Tunnel. We got our car from the garage and had a heck of a time trying to get into the right hand lane to pull up to the front of the hotel to pick up our bags. I wished that we had gotten our bags first and taken them to the garage and left from there. This might not be possible if you are traveling with a lot of luggage, just be aware that traffic can get quite heavy (and cut-throat!) when people are trying to get into the tunnel.,
