The Hampton Inn Manhattan-Times Square North raises the bar for midrange chain hotels. We were impressed right off the bat by the two-star hotel’s contemporary lobby, and we found the general room design, comfortable size, various perks and friendly management equally impressive. Add a convenient location in Midtown Manhattan and you’ve got yourself a solid Cheapo hotel pick.

Quick read

Pros: Central location. Breakfast included. Spacious rooms. Good value.

Cons: Slow elevators. Crowded breakfast room.

Rooms

The 300 guest rooms at the Hampton Inn Times Square North clock in at an ample 300 square feet per room. With their restrained palette of browns, whites and oranges, they aren’t the most stylish, but they are well appointed with wooden furnishings, thick duvets and heavy blackout curtains.

With their ergonomic desk chairs and laptop tables, these rooms would make an especially convenient base for the business traveler (bonus:Wi-Fi is free at the Hampton Inn, which is not the case at most business-class hotels).

Each room is equipped with air conditioning, a phone, flat-panel television, coffeemaker and soundproof windows (the latter a necessity here).

Bathrooms

Bathrooms are wallpapered, with granite countertops, massive mirrors and framed artwork. They are equipped with a hair dryer and basic toiletries. Most have a bathtub.

Hotel

The Hampton Inn chain has a general reputation for being rather basic, and perhaps a little boring. The Hampton Inn Manhattan-Times Square North breaks that mold. It’s stylish, with clean modern lines and a few colorful touches.

The breakfast room, with its muted tones and square-back chairs, is pleasant, and the buffet breakfast (included in the room rate) is plentiful and varied. (Guests suggest going early, though, as it can get crowded). Additional welcoming touches include complimentary coffee, tea and hot chocolate, available all day, and freshly baked cookies each weekday afternoon.

Wi-Fi is free throughout, and there are free Internet kiosks with complimentary printing. The hotel also offers a fitness center.

Location

Situated just one avenue west from the Times Square, the Hampton Inn Times Square North is an ideal base for walking to Midtown attractions, including the Broadway theaters, Radio City Music Hall, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Central Park.

One block over on Ninth Avenue, a number of quality local eateries offer a welcome alternative to the overpriced fare in Times Square. The hotel is convenient to public transportation, Penn Station and the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

Transportation

Subways: Local C and E trains stop a just block away (50th Street and Eighth Avenue). The local 1 train is also nearby at 50th Street and Broadway.

JFK: Take the Air Train to Sutphin Boulevard-Archer Avenue Station and transfer to a Manhattan-bound E subway train to 50th Street. The hotel is one short block from the station.

LaGuardia: We recommend an airport bus service to Penn Station. From there take an Uptown C or E train from 34th Street-Penn Station to 50th Street.

Newark: Take the Air Train to the NJ Transit station, and then any NJ Transit train into New York Penn Station. Transfer to an Uptown C or E subway train at 34th Street-Penn Station and take it two stops to 50th Street.

About the Hampton Inn Manhattan - Times Square North neighborhood

Midtown West is packed with tourists sights... and tourist-class hotels. Working west from Fifth Avenue to Eighth Avenue, the Theater District is home not only to all the Broadway babies, but to Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, and the Museum of Modern Art. Not to mention Times Square—an entity within itself. Although most New Yorkers steer clear of this congested (and now pedestrianized) area, the neon lights, larger-than-life billboards, and wise-talking street vendors keep the visitors coming. And coming. And coming.
