Travelers tip on shoppingWhole neighbourhood is good for lots of shop pleasureRating:4
Good Value for Good RoomsThe hotel seems fairly new and the rooms are very clean, decent sized, beds very comfortable, and room well appointed. This isnt a luxury hotel but I was reasonably impressed with the room and overall condition. I had read some other reviews which complained about noise. Our experience was the opposite. Other than hearing a door close in the hall, the room was very quiet and comfortable. No doormen, bellhops, or concierges - but we never use them anyhow. Location is good and bad. On the good side, the SoHo/Tribeca neighborhood was very convenient. Seems a very safe area. On the bad side, this block of Watts street is the entrance to the Holland Tunnel. If you arrive at rush hour by car (like we did), expect a major challenge. The hotel has a small driveway loop to pull into which makes it even feasible to arrive by car. No valet parking but the validated parking at nearby garages was convenient and reasonably priced. The only negative was the breakfast area, and this wasnt all that bad. It gets very crowded and the staff does not keep up with re-stocking the food well. We never did see the promised scrambled eggs the whole time we were there. For a quick coffee, pastry, yogurt, or cereal - it is fine. The staff is thin, but they seemed polite and helpful. Overall, our experience was very good. I definitely would stay there again. Convenient location (aside from the tunnel traffic), good rooms, reasonably priced - thats all I need when we go to New YorkRating:5
Enjoyable stayWe stayed for three nights in August. Hotel staff was very accommodating. Service was good. Location was convenient. However, there was not much to do in the immediate vicinity. Had to take the bus or subway or walk a distance, to really go where the action was. But, overall, the hotel was very good. Comment from the hotels management Posted: 15-Sep-09 Thanks for the great note about our hotel. We always love to see that and know were doing our part in making a guests stay. I read your comment about not much to do in the immediate vicinity too. Ill tell you what, next time you plan on staying in NYC contact me first (The General Manager) at the hotel and well give you a huge list of things to do and see right in the Soho area. Wed like to make sure your next stay is even better. Thanks again! Hotel Management, General ManagerRating:5
Great Hotel, Bad LocationThis Hotel was pleasantly consistant with the other Hampton Inns Ive stayed in. But unfortunatley its closeness to a tunnel makes for unbearable traffic in front of the hotel. Driving to it was nerve rattling but once we got there it was a pleasure.Rating:4
Nice location, beware tunnel trafficRoom not available on check in. Was upgraded to larger room.Rating:5
Great Location, Great StaffA friend referred this hotel to us and we were very pleased. Close to subway, resturants and shopping. The hotel staff was extremely helpful and even made some recommendations that helped us out a lot. The hotel is in the process of getting a bar that would be very helpful when having to wait for the rest of your party or for your room to be ready because you arrived before check-in time. Rooms are small, but very comforable. Breakfast is decent with quite a few choices and a nice atrium area to sit in and relax. The subway system is amazing and you can get any where you want to be very quickly.Rating:4
pleasantly surprisedWe found the hotel to be very clean, very conveniently located for driving and walking (close to the holland tunnel, and soho, village, tribeca). Room was small but spotless! Helful, cheerful staff. Handy (free) breakfast in a large restaurant area. Would definitely stay there again. The only complaint we had is the AC unit was rather loud.Rating:5
A good find in NYCWhen I was looking for a hotel in NYC I knew I wouldnt be spending much time in the room so I wanted somewhere clean and reasonably priced to leave my belongings while I walked the City. The Hampton ticks both of these boxes with ease. The staff were extremely friendly and polite and couldnt do more to help. The hotel is located downtown in Soho, a very short walk from Canal St Subway and right on the fringe of the bustling Soho district. Walking to Central park only took around an hour and the subway was under 20 minutes. All in all a great clean and safe place to stay, recommended!Rating:5
Excellent HotelGreat Hotel. One block from Canal St. All subway lines within one block.Lots of restaurants within walking didstnce.Hotel is 1 yr. old.Large room with 2 double beds. Breakfst included every morning.Hot food, plus yorgurt, buns, fruit, tera biscuits,orange juice, everything you could think of.The Hotel could give you derections for any where you wanted to go. Free local calls. Free internet and printer. Loved it.Rating:5
Stayed overnightThe hotel has a very good location in SoHo, very close to bars, restaurants, comedy clubs, etc. It is reasonably priced because it is not a full scale hotel. I believe it has no restaurant but there is a nice bar in the lobby. They serve breakfast from 6 to 10. And although the room was smaller than some other hotels it is quite enough and has everything you need.
Travelers tip on nightlifeCheck out Comedy Cellar and the beer garden at 7 RivingtonRating:5
Great place to stayWe had a wonderful time in NYC and would definitely stay at this hotel again. Even though its right near the entrance to the Holland Tunnel, noise was never a problem. Its also convenient to shopping, dining and subway stops to anywhere we wanted to go. The staff was friendly and very attentive.Rating:5
A great access to subwayThis hotel was really convenient for a traveller with no car like myself, located within a walking distance to three different subway lines. (One of them was a direct line from JFK). The location would be also perfect for shoppers. The hotel staffs were all very nice and professional. I also appreciated the quality of their breakfast. Id defintely like to choose this hotel again when I visit the city in the future.
Travelers tip on saving a few bucksIf you stay for a week and use subway as main transportation, get an one-week unlimited ride pass for $25 at Howard Beach station.Rating:5
SOHOthis hotel was very convienient to subways, buses, and taxis service. soho is a very laid back part of town thriving with different shops and eateries. little italy was just down the street about 7 blocks. there were many places to eat within walking distance. The hotel offered a continental breakfast everymorning with a wide variety of things to eat hot and cold. the menu even changed daily.the staff was extremely helpful and friendly and very knowledgable about trains and busses. there was complementary coffee all day. on the 19th floor is an open terrance with a nice view of the city.
Travelers tip on diningwhen leaving the hotel take a left on watts, at the end of the block is a fast food joint called cool blue, they have the best burgers and they are open 24 hours with and extensive menu.to find a bit more cross the street to find a mexican resturaunt by the name of lupes they have the best mex hot chocolate and many mexican plates. there is also a pizza shop next door that sells fresh pizza. next to that is a drug store where you can buy just about anything.Rating:4
Excellent valueExcellent value and good location, together with a first-class service from the front-desk team.
Travelers tip on saving a few bucksGreat value small restaurants nearby ("mooncake foods" and "lupé"Rating:4
THE GATEAWAY IN MANHATTANWe arrived too early at the hotel, but they did their best to get us a room. Their breakfast buffet is amazing and unexpected. The buddha lounge is fabulous, cant wait til they get their liquor license. The only bad thing is its by the holland tunnel entrance, you will have to walk up two blocks to get a cab and about 4-5 to get on the subway. Otherwise its very nice, clean and the staff is amazing. Housekeeping is really nice and overly helpful, that alone was great. Thanks to the front desk for always helping us out with questions!!! A+
Travelers tip on getting the most out of your stayYou can walk up to SOHO where all the shops are at! NO need for subway or taxis, you save $50-80 a week.Rating:5
We Loved It!The staff was always helpful when asked. The room and bed clean and comfortable. The breakfest was good too and when things ran out attendent got more. Location great very close to Metro stations on Canal Street. Good places to eat near by and good shopping too. A nice Modern Decor. Their Bar is still not operational however when we Visited May 09.
Travelers tip on diningI recommened Moon Cakes, excellent food and price just a half block away from Hotel. I also recommened the Half Pint, a nice bar & grill located a block north from Bleeker on Thomas St... (I think.) Its a few blocks walk from hotel,but worth it.Rating:5
great hotel. worth the doughAfter a late dinner, I arrived at the hotel at about midnight. The man at the front desk was extremely friendly and efficient. I got into the room within 10 minutes, and the room itself was spectacular. It has a good location (not exceptional) and is very cozy. Id definitely stay there again if I be around. Continental breakfast is average, but the overall stay was well worth the priceRating:3
Poor locationI have stayed at 100+/- NYC hotels and this was by far the worst location. The front door is on a main arterial to the Holland Tunnel. Traffic is a nightmare around the hotel from 3:30 - 6:30pm, which is generally check in time. It took me 45mn to get close for check in. Never again.Rating:4
Best deal in SOHOEasily walkable from the subway, this hotel is an excellent choice for a getaway near the shopping and restaurants of SOHO, Little Italy, and Chinatown. We booked a room with two beds, but got one queen; not a problem for us but others may need to be more specific. Hotel opened in Sept. 2008. No bar yet, but liquor stores are nearby. Breakfast included. Comfortable; not deluxe.
Travelers tip on diningTry restaurants Boom and City Girl Cafe.Rating:4
great hotel, shame about the small rooms.great hotel to stay in, soho, right next to all shops, although i would say the bath rooms are nearly as bog as the bedrooms! which makes it look quit small, especially when there are 2 of you in ther! god hotel overall
Travelers tip on shoppinggreat place to hit all the designer shops.Rating:5
This is great findInitially when my colleague recommended this hotel for my "girls weekend" I was turning my nose up to "Hampton Inn"... But in NYC to find an economically-priced hotel in a great neighborhood is a coup in itself. This hotel is a total gem - because it is totally brand new so everything is clean. The only problem was that it is so new there is no liquor license. So the meet at the lounge for drinks plan was foiled, but other than that & our room not getting cleaned while we were out all day on Saturday were the only problems - which were minor. We brought our own wine & drank it in the lounge. And there were more than enough towels so no problemo!
Travelers tip on getting the most out of your stayMake sure you make it down in time for the complimenary breakfast - The Cupping Rooms omelets were $15-$20!Rating:4
Hidden GemThis hotel is like a little taste of South Beach. The decor is contemporary and very artsy. The rooms are smaller than your Marriott or Hilton but, you get extras like flat screens that some big name hotels in NYC dont have. The bfast was awesome. The only thing was I paid for city views but was put on the 6th floor in the back..basically the back of a building was my view...the site promised a view of the statue of liberty. So, Id say they didnt deliver on that promise.
Travelers tip on shoppingGreat deals in the area...youre moments away from Canal street (Chinatown) so all the vendors are right out your window and West BWay has excellent little boutiques for shopping.Rating:5
Good value at last minuteNicer, new hotel on the edge of Soho. Close to subway, shopping and restaurants. Was available on short notice (24 hours) and affordable. Would definitely choose again.
