Just a few miles north of the Bronx, the city of Yonkers is the first of worthwhile stops for visitors traveling north along the Hudson River. This hotel is one of the newest family-friendly properties in the area, and the closest to the Hudson River Museum, the LEGOLAND Discovery Center, and Lenoir Preserve. It’s also 10 to 15 miles from Bronx attractions like the Bronx Zoo and Yankee Stadium. You can get to the stadium — or even NYC — via train, and the hotel provides a complimentary shuttle to the station.
There are 150 rooms, both standard and suites, with either two queens or one king bed. All rooms include free Wi-Fi, mini-fridges, microwaves and flat-screen televisions. Suites have sofa beds.
The Hampton Inn is known for its free hot breakfast and to-go breakfast bags. You can have dinner at the trendy Zuppa restaurant and lounge, located off the lobby. There’s also an indoor pool, a gym and free parking.

I was extremely pleased with how accessible the staff here was. They were all courteous and pleasant. The appearance of the hotel was clean and orderly. The shuttle service was an amazing feature that made our trip more enjoyable.
We have often stayed at this very popular hotel, although not for a couple of years. During this time it has become very tired, in fact quite shabby, notably in the breakfast area where the chairs are truly disgusting.
Reception bordered on rude. Person on duty barely acknowledged me and certainly didn’t ever look me in the eye.
Breakfast was good, beds comfortable and room quiet. We were pleased about that but this property should be - and was - better.
