This is a terrific and friendly hotel with nice music-themed lobby decor. Perfect for visiting UT. The rooms, beds, breakfast and overall experience were better than expected for a mid-level chain hotel.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 25 September 2016

I stayed at the Hampton Inn University/Capitol for 3 nights in September 2016. I loved this hotel. Not only is this hotel nicer than any Hampton Inn I've ever stayed in, but it's nicer than most luxury hotels I've stayed in. And, I've stayed in luxury hotels in Miami Beach, Las Vegas, etc. For perspective, I used to work in...

Staff was friendly and helpful. Location was close to capital and a short drive to Saint David's Hospital. The hotel is nice but the price seemed high. They also charged for parking.... which seemed over priced too. Other than over priced... the hotel was nice. One morning my shower had no hot water... only warm.

I like this hotel. Second time I've stayed here this year. It's clean, comfortable and conveniently located next to the UT campus. When visiting the university I prefer this location over the busier, more touristy place close to the river. Walking distance to campus and good places to eat. And it's quiet. Good breakfast and friendly staff. And, if you...

This newer hotel has convenient parking, spacious lobby, high ceilings in halls and rooms, making them feel open and airy. Good selections for breakfast, making a quick departure easy, or a leisurely stay enjoyable.

Stayed at this property week of Feb 13. I had an 8th floor suite that was outstanding. The check-in staff were friendly and professional. The room had was well laid-out with a small fridge, microwave and sink. What was really great was the large open area and over-sized desk which really made working in the evening easy and comfortable. There...

Hampton University was the best Hotel experience ever. The outside of the building doesn't appear to be that nice But don't let it fool you. The beds and comforters were the most comfortable I had ever slept in. It was my daughter's wedding weekend and they gave the honeymooners a complimentary upgrade. Perfect location, just blocks from the Capitol and...

I unexpectedly needed to get a room and luckily, there were rooms available. The staff were extremely friendly and warm. I got upgraded to a suite overlooking the pool. Walking to the room, I noticed the hallways were well lit and clean. The room and the television were huge. The room was clean and I didn't hear any noise outside...
