Located about 10 minutes from the Fort Wayne International Airport, this Hampton Inn is also situated near the children’s zoo and Science Central. Families can enjoy some quality time by the indoor pool after a day visiting Fort Wayne’s family-friendly attractions. Kids will love to play some volleyball outside on the grassy lawn or play a board game in the lobby on a rainy day.
The spacious guestrooms and suites feature a mini-fridge, microwave and complimentary Wi-Fi. Starting the day off right with the free hot breakfast buffet is also convenient for families who are visiting Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Great hotel and clean and comfortable room. The "choose your room" option with Hilton Honors was really nice, and the breakfast was excellent. The AAA rate made the price competitive. Bring your camera - there's a wildlife refuge right next door.
This is my absolute favorite hotel in Fort Wayne! The staff and overall experience at this hotel never disappoints. I have officially made Hampton Inn Ft. Wayne-Southwest my go to hotel whenever I'm staying in the area.
The indoor pool, open from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m., is a great spot for families to hang out and take a dip. The pool is surrounded by tables and chairs, and even more tables and chairs can be found on the outside patio, just off the pool. There's a grill on the patio, too. Pool towels are provided and there is a restroom located just off the pool.
The cozy and comfortable lobby area makes for a great place to gather and play a board game at one of the tables. The front desk has several board games to offer families.
A large grassy area just outside the pool offers a great place for the kids to run and play. During the warmer months, volleyball and badminton are often set up here.
Families will love starting each day with the free breakfast buffet. Both hot and cold items like eggs, waffles and cereal are available from 6 to 10 a.m. The kids will love making their own breakfast at the waffle machine. Highchairs are available. If your family is in a hurry in the morning, you can grab an "On the Run" breakfast bag Monday through Friday as you head out the door.
