Hampton Inn Philadelphia International Airport
Travel Blogs from Philadelphia
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 …
Going to blog about three days here in one blog trying not to bore you. Did absolutely nothing interesting on Tuesday morning, May 3 unless you call getting an oil change interesting. I've already traveled more than 2300 miles on this trip. Time for an oil change. Good thing too...found out my 3rd brake light was out and they fixed my rear …
Woke up about 9:00 and headed to the free breakfast at Hampton. Then headed to Valley Forge. Well, I thought I was heading that way, but you see, I also checked to see how far Gettysburg was, and I accidentally put Gettysburg into my Garmin in stead of Valley Forge. Chalk that one up to old age, I guess. By the time I discovered my error, I didn't …
... and watched some old man play the biggest organ I have ever seen, while us three sat under a giant eagle like little children and listened. We then took a walk to a place called reading terminal market, it was heaven on earth - everywhere you looked there was foods from all over the world, quite literally a feast for the eyes. I somehow managed to refrain from buying anything, and we moved on to our next place on the list which was antique row/south street. This ...
... It also has the inkstand used in the signing of The Declaration of Independence. A quote on the wall by Thomas Paine caught our eye. "We have in our power to begin the World over again." We found that to be a very powerful statement.
Our next stop was Old City Hall. This was the former home of the U.S. Supreme Court. Because Philadelphia was the United States Capital until 1800, this became the Supreme Courthouse from 1791 until 1800, ...

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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
