Don't stay here. Staff really good at damage control, but the hotel obviously has uninterested management who doesn't make sure that the housekeeping staff keeps up with standard housekeeping. Housekeeping left dirty towels, a pillow case with a blood stain and no soap. While we were checking in another customer demanded a room change for similar reasons.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn Philadelphia International Airport
Great choice for Park and Fly
We stayed here the night of Sept 6. Nice clean room, and good bathroom. Breakfast bags were convienent, and the hot breakfast (ready 30 minutes earlier than advertised) looked really good too! Shuttle service to and from the airport was convienent, and the driver was very helpful. They even invited us to stop back at the hotel when we returned from our trip for some coffee before we got on the road home!
Park and Fly is the way to go...
If you are flying out of Philadelphia, the cost of a night at the Hampton Inn will get you up to two weeks of free parking and convenient shuttle service to and from the airport. A previous flight from Philadelphia taught us that the airport's long-term parking lots can be full, with the expensive short-term parking garage being the only available alternative. Staying at the Hampton Inn the night before helped us to start our vacation without the stress of driving to the airport, searching for parking and worrying about the time. The icing on the cake is the fact that the Inn is clean and comfortable with a staff that is courteous, efficient and helpful. Using the complimentary internet connected computer in the lobby allowed us to check our flight status and print our boarding passes while relaxing after our drive to the Inn. Considering the insufficient airport parking space and the absence of ground transportation from outside the city to Philadelphia International Airport, The Hampton Inn offers a valuable public service with their park and fly package.
We just got back from a weekend in Philly. We chose to stay at this Hampton b/c we have stayed in Hamptons before in other locations and have always been very satisfied. This Hampton is no exception. The lobby is nicely decorated, the staff is very helpful, the rooms were very clean. The beds are sooo comfortable and the sheets are crisp and fresh. The bathroom was spic and span. This hotel is near a commuter train, about 1/2 mile away. We took this train right into Philly a few times. We traveled with a few kids, so it got a little expensive. The trip is 3 dollars a person and takes about 20 minutes. The Hampton provides a free shuttle bus that takes you right to the train stop also.
The Ruby Tuesday that is located right by this hotel was also very nice. Great waitress and good food.
This is a busy hotel because it is so close to the airport. There were alot of people coming and going, but it did not seem to effect the cleaniness of the building or the effeciency of the staff.
A Great Place to Stay While Attending Sports Events
We, a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 children, needed a reasonable priced hotel near Citizens Bank Park. Because of graduation weekend, all hotels in downtown Phila that were affordable to us, were booked. A friend suggested to stay near the airport. What a great idea! The Hampton Inn is very close to Citizens Bank Park. First night cost $130 and second night cost $89 which included free parking and continental breakfast. We had a king suite which included a king sized bed and a pull out sofabed. Very clean, very customer service oriented! The kids loved the sofabed and we loved the king sized bed which we don't usually find at a hotel. The breakfast was fine. Lots of cold choices. Only 2 hot choices. Ruby Tuesday next door was opened late and very busy. In the future, we would definately stay here - an excellent value and good location to the sports arenas.
Very pleased with this facility
We opted for the affordably priced Park & Fly package that let us keep our car at the PNC Bank parking lot across the street (rather than pay to park at the airport) while we were gone for the week. The free shuttle service to and from the airport was first rate. The room was immaculate and contained all we needed for our overnight stay. The morning continental breakfast contained a few hot choices along with plenty of fruits, juices, cereals, pastries, etc. We highly recommend this Hampton.
Nice hotel for the money
I am staying in Philadelphia for 8-10 weeks on business and have spent time at the Hampton Philadelphia Airport and its Hilton cousin the Embassy Suites down the street.
The Hampton is a nice hotel, but if you are staying for a more than a week get the king study room: it has a couch and a work table. You can relax and watch TV or do work.
They provide high speed internet and it almost always works very reliably. The king study room has an internet cable that can reach accross the room.
There is no room service and the only restaurants near by are Ruby Tuesdays, the Embassy grill (at the Embassy Suites Hotel) and a small restaurant at the nearby Courtyard by Marriot.
I got a refrigurator for my room ($10.00 extra for the entire stay) and kept cold drinks and cold cuts in there. If I could get a Microwave in the room, it would be perfect. They do have a microwave down stairs that guests can use, but there is often a queue and I feel it is a little unsanitary to use the same microwave everyone else uses.
very nice staff!
I paid over 150 for this hotel and that was with AAA. The hotel was Clean Staff was helpful. I think it was nice and what you would expect from a Hampton, but was it worth 150 dollars? NO I don't think it was I would say 90 MAX. I would not stay here again simply because I think for that kind of money I should be geting an excellent rated hotel not average.
Good staff and breakfast, but room problems.
This hotel was okay, but not great. In the bedside lamp, there was a short and one side did not work at all throughout our stay. There was also no light bulb in another lamp. Lighting would be my main complaint with this hotel. The cable tv was decent, but did not offer many good stations for children. Our daughter particularly missed the Disney Channel. We did sleep well and the room was quiet. The bathroom was nice. Lobby was busy and noisy at times. Not a total disaster, but not too highly recommeded either. Just ah-ight.
Park and Fly
We enjoyed our night in this hotel. It is clean and nicely decorated. They have a nice free buffet breakfast that included 2 hot items along with all the usual. You park your car in the bank lot across the street. You can park free for up to 2 weeks. Many hotels in the area will charge you after one week. Next door there is a Ruby Tuesdays. They will deliver to the hotel. The employees were very nice and the shuttle departed and picked up in a timely fashion. We were very happy with this hotel and will use it again.
Clean room, close to airport, busy lobby
The room was neat and clean, the bathroom was a nice size, parking is great...but the "hanging out" by what appear to be locals in the lobby is a bit brow raising. Close to restaurants, freeways, and center city. Decent stay overall, no complaints. EXCELLENT high speed internet access and free breakfast is a great touch. Lots of options for the business traveler.

So we made it to Philly late in the evening, with promise in the air. The plane ride was FANTASTIC, with gorgeous views of the square plotted historic city.
Then we decided to rent a car (bad idea just ask a cab to drive you around downtown, and then back to your hotel).
1. If you've never driven there, don't attempt your first …
After dropping off the rental car off we got a taxi to where we were staying in Philidelphia.
One of the first things we had to do was go to the famous 'Rocky Steps' where Rocky Balboa runs up the steps in the film 'Rocky' whilst training to the song 'Gonna Fly Now'. It was ridiculously hot so we took more of a casual stroll up the steps and ran the last few in respect to the film.
We explored the city and its sights during the days and ...
... We talked a lot about America vs Australia in terms of benefits, health, schools, pay rates and loads of other things. Definitely an eye opener. We live in an amazing country. We went back to Cheyenne's house and met her lovely lovely parents. They were so kind and so interested in Australia.
We also gave them some vegemite, chocolate and lollies to try from Australia. Cheyenne liked the vegemite! She was also extremely kind to drive us all the way to the Wells ...
... a few hours to walk round the ones on the route with one missing as the building had been renovated. After stopping in Macy's department store to use the loo, we walked through the french second empire style building of City Hall. It's an amazing looking building that has a huge tower on one side. Then we walked across to JFK Plaza that had a purple coloured water fountain that was normally clear but today was Lupos Awareness Day and they had somehow turned the water purple. After ...
... through. As I could’ve guessed, Jadin and Aria had to play a round (plus I needed some putting practice for my upcoming golf game in Hershey!). But first, the kids played on the adjacent playground working up a sweat. While they played I snuck and ordered a quick burger from a joint in the park called Square Burger as I didn’t have a lunch meal (BTW, they weren’t square but they were good).
When we got on the mini-golf course Jadin and Aria had a ...
