We were with a group of people who were staying downtown near the Convention Center. My family opted to stay at the Hampton. We were wonderfully surprised at how chic, clean and overall awesome the facility and the staff was! Have already recommended!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 December 2016

I loved this hotel. I had a room with a king-sized bed and the layout was different than what I had expected in a very charming way. The room did not look institutional at all but almost home-like. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in at a hotel or elsewhere. The place was immaculately...

This is our 4th or 5th stay here since they opened. It is so convenient to OSU and other areas of Columbus! The rooms that we have had are always large and spacious. The staff at the breakfast is just wonderful. I used the fitness room for the first time this trip, very impressed!

Hotel is very fresh and clean. The lobby is nice for groups to gather and the pool was very nice also. The rooms seem newly remodeled. The beds are comfy, charging stations are numerous and there was even an anti-bacterial phone. The bathrooms were very new and clean.

This was probably the friendliest staff I've come across while staying at Hamptons. Paris was extremely helpful and courteous. I was in town to visit my dad at Baptist and the staff asked about him every time I walked past the front. Remembered my name, came up to me every time they saw me and asked if there was anything...

My husband and I stayed at the Hampton Inn for 15 nights as we were in town for the birth of our grandson. The Hotel is clean, the rooms were quiet and comfortable, the internet was free, and the breakfast was substantial and delicious. We were only a mile or so from our son's home so the location was perfect!...

I found this hotel to be above average compared to other Hampton Inns I've stayed in. The price was also somewhat higher than other Hamptons. I'd be willing to sacrifice a little bit of the luxury for a lower price.

Overall excellent service and staff. Will recommend hotel. No internet issues. Clean room. Kids had a blast in the pool. Best stay by far. That was with me booking late in the game. Breakfast was great too.

We stayed here over MLK Weekend on a Sunday night. Our room was a king bed, really comfortable. Plenty of towels, and very clean. The staff was friendly and helped us with any questions we had. This is very near to the campus, so I could see this fill fast if it was a weekend anything was going on near...
