First I want to thank the staff and front desk crew at this Hampton. When I arrived Air Canada had lost my bag so Lin gave me some toothpaste, toothbrush and deodorant to get me through the next morning. Everyone was sincere and sympathetic to my plight, so thanks to you all. I wish I had gotten everyone's names, they were all nice. The room was on the corner of the 15th FL with views of the stadium across the street. Very nice. There is parking for a fee but worth it. The only real downside was there was only one elevator working which was inconvenient but I've dealt with worse. This is a Hampton and a very nice one but it is not the Waldorf. So if you know that going in you'll be impressed. Thanks again.
The hotel was clean. The front desk was friendly. However, the beds were way too soft and the bedding did not stay in place. Very uncomfortable.
Also, only one elevator was in service so we spent a lot of time waiting for it.
But the location is very good and the view from the 16th floor terrace is great.
