I study the archeological sites and after many visits have used this hotel as my base. Consider disregarding some of the dated comments as the hotel updates individual rooms continually and that along with this area is going through a renaissance of sorts as a result of the opening of its integral underground Metro (Metropolitana di Napoli). As you can imagine it took decades as they continually hit archeological sites. This is a most convenient area to consider and has been for a century (unless you don't like crowded areas). Line 1 specifically begins outside at Pizza Garibaldi (where its ancient line 2 begins inside the station). Get the "Artecard" for the multi-day bus/train pass along with the discounts for the museums. Line 1 is transforming Italy's largest Piazza as it whisks you to the Archeological Museum, university area, Pizza Dante, the Toledo St. shopping district, etc. along with Lines 2 & 6.
As you know this is an American brand name and reflects this description that blends with well with this Italian hotel.
Clean, quiet hotel close to town and metro. In keeping with typical European hotels, the lobby, elevator, and rooms are small but clean and in good repair. Hotel staff were courteous and helpful. Close to metro so it's easy to get around from the hotel.
It was very close to the main train station. The place is not 'fancy' but it was quiet. In ten words or less the front desk could tell us how to use the bus and Metro (and a curios funicular to get us up a severe hill to a castle). Staying there enabled us to see a lot more than just Pompeii.

I thought the hotel was very good, more 3.5 stars than 4 but still very good. I found the rooms very comfortable and the selection at breakfast was very very good. The area surrounding the hotel is not the nicest around however we always felt safe and walked to and from the hotel every evening. Note than when taking taxi's in Naples please ensure you agree your price before you set off. Taxi's from the airport to central Naples should be around 16 euros.
We had an extremely good experience at this hotel on a long weekend in Naples and would recommend it to anyone. We found it clean and comfortable with surprising amenities that include a nice bar just off the lobby and a rooftop restaurant. The hotel is on a busy street, but we had no problems with noise or too much light since our room was equipped with windows with very thick panes (maybe not completely soundproof but almost) and blackout curtains that blocked all the light. This is a very convenient place to stay if you have limited time and want to visit Naples's famous Archaeological Museum since museum is just a medium-long walk or a very short bus ride away from the museum. The hotel staff also deserves special mention for their helpfulness. On our first evening in Naples, I hurt my knee and needed to apply ice to it twice a day. The hotel was kind enough to supply me with ice every day even though they had barely enough for their own needs and the staff provided it within seconds of being asked.
