My hotel for the week while in NYC for BEA
Before starting this post I want to mention that I was in no way compensated for this review.
I was so happy when Kimberly said that we would be staying at the Hampton Inns during our week in NYC for BEA.
I was first introduced to Hampton Inns when I went to NYC in 2010. I loved it and since then when ever I travel I always make it a point to stay at Hampton Inns. (Meadville, PA) I am always recommending the Hampton Inns when I hear friends traveling.
I personally always find the atmosphere at Hampton Inns to be very warm and welcoming. It feels like you are at home. I have to say though that this room (Manhattan/Time's Square) was much bigger then the room I had in 2010 (Madison Square Gardens).
When I arrived at the hotel on Sunday night, my roomies weren't there and the staff quickly said that they would hold my bags for me while I went to meet them. From that point on I have to say that everyone went above and beyond what I expected.
Sadly, I didn't get to know the day staff as well at the night staff. The night staff (Britney and Luis) were fantastic and always smiling and laughing with us. They were extremely helpful (providing me directions to the M&M store) and willing to take a few minutes to chat with us. I was a little bummed that I didn't get to say bye to Luis since he didn't work the Friday night. So if by chance you are reading this Luis, thank you so much it was a pleasure to meet you. Waves hi to Britney, you were awesome and I am happy to have met you.
The only down side was that we always seemed to miss the fresh cookies but could smell them hours later. I have to say that luckily I did manage to nab an oatmeal raisin cookie one afternoon on my way out.
I love how the Hampton Inn provides a breakfast to eat there and on the go. I was lucky enough to partake in both. The mornings I was able to sit and eat there was always a great selection of stuff to pick from. I feel in love with the biscuits they were so good.
The breakfast on the go bags were great as well. You got a muffin, an apple, mints and water. Perfect for a quick bit on the go.
The entire staff was friendly and very approachable any time of the day and the place was super clean and you could see they took pride in the building because after the room was cleaned someone would come to see if it was clean and someone was always cleaning something.
I loved how close I actually was to the Javitis and Time's Sqaure and everything else.
I know the next time I go to NYC I will definitely stay here again.
