Good location

Check in was quick. We checked in and took the subway to and from the phillies game. In the morning we walked to the Reading terminal market. We had a very pleasant stay and would do it again.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Go to the Reading terminal market for some good eats. Shop or dine in at one of the many eateries in the market. We went to Pearls and had two different kinds of oysters on the half shell. Both were delicious.

Good hotel

The hotel was good. We were only there one night. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only downside was the parking. The lot that is associated with the hotel cost the same as any other lot and it was very crowded.

great hotel

Great hotel, especially for the price! Only a few blocks from restaurants, bars, shopping, and several public transportation options. The hotel was nice and clean and the staff was friendly - they even let us check-in 3 hours early! Will definitely stay here again.

Nice hotel.

My husband and I recently traveled to this hotel. The rates are great for quick travelling. Breakfast was good. The location is convenient if you need to get to the Convention center. Parking was a bit difficult, but overall is was a nice hotel and served its' purpose.

Great Hotel

I loved this hotel! I previously stayed in a different hotel during my last stay in Philly and was very disappointed. This hotel had a friendly staff, 24 hour coffee bar, comfy beds, a nice swimming pool and was a close walk to Market Street and Convention Hall. Not only that, it was a fantastic deal compared to other hotels in the area. I think I may have found my new place to stay in central Philly!

Convenient and Comfortable

We enjoyed our stay very much. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Great location and easy to find. Wish parking was included - that added another $25 to the cost.

hampton inn philadelphia convention center

It was a great hotel in a great location with a great staff. The breakfast is really nice but on saturdays and sundays it is crowed between 9 and 10AM and you can't find a seat. But everything is good. Rooms are perfect. bathroom also. Staff is really nice. Location is perfect: 5 min walk from the city hall, the main shopping street (walnut street).
