It has the shell of a very nice hotel, but seems to fall short in many areas.
Recently stayed at another Hampton Inn and this one wasn't up to the other.
Start with the fact that self park is another lot down the street, less than friendly. $25 a day. Staying downtown so I get it. But the people at the lot were rude and didn't start me out feeling comfortable about leaving my car there.
Room has nice enough beds and room were clean. But didn't have a frig - those were only guaranteed for suites. (Other Hamptons I've stayed at they were standard). Was able to get one brought up.
We are on a long road trip so laundry was necessary. The only machine (yes only one) had no soap for sale and front desk didn't either. (Despite a sign saying to ask front desk). And since there was only one machine in a minuscule room it made it very inconvenient.
Someone made a mess in the elevator and the hotel put out a barricade to point it out - but it was quite a while until it was actually cleaned. Not a pleasant ride up.
TV - yes. But kept flickering out on HBO and FX.
Free WiFi - with teens that's a must. But this Hampton only allows 3 devices to hook up. Well with a family or four that really doesn't work out. So I never allowed my phone to sync.
I liked that there was a safe , but question the wisdom of it being unmounted. Just lying in closet.
Ice machine didn't work. When I mentioned it to staff they just shrugged and said go to another floor.
Breakfast was nice. It was a full breakfast. (Eggs, waffles, cereal, toast, oatmeal)
15 minute walk to historic district and 5 minutes from Reading market.
