Its right across the street from the Classic Center which is why I chose this hotel but as a Hilton its just ok. The rooms are very noisy and the water went cold in the shower. There were also 5 police out near the parking garage one evening when we were walking back from dinner. There was a person on... More

This was a great hotel in the heart of Athens, Ga. We literally could walk anywhere we needed to go-to eat, to tour UGA, and to listen to live music. I would recommend staying in a corner room in this quaint hotel. We will definitely be back again

The restaurant menu was very limited. I expect hotel restaurants to be more expensive but the quality of the food should be good. I ordered the three colored tortellini with roasted vegetables. The vegetables were NOT roasted, maybe steamed or microwaved. No bread was served with the meal. The heater in the room was VERY noisy. Several others attending the... More

We found the staff and accommodations to be great. Staff was helpful with questions about area. Room was clean top to bottom. Everything met expectations---no problems whatsoever with room. Only gripe is it's a little pricy for the area with a $10 per day parking charge on top of that. Parking area was a deck with key entrance and appeared... More

The hotel is in a great location, but the place is in dire need of some freshening up. Carpet is worn, curtains are old and dusty, shower has mold in it. Decor is dated also...would love it if they served Starbucks or local brand Jittery Joes coffee.

We were in town for one night with our gymnastics team for a meet at the center across the street. The location was great (no need to drive for anything) but I didn't feel like there was anything special about the hotel. The indoor pool is small and kinky 4 ft deep. The spa was broken. We had lots of... More

Great hotel just by the University of Georgia campus. Clean, efficient, and friendly. On the pricey side, though. Small and cozy bar downstairs, and very good buffet breakfast in the morning. The vibrant downtown Athens is right outside the front door.

Hot water should NOT take 5-10 minutes to reach the top (8th) floor! The "complimentary" Internet connection is spotty and frequently cuts out. Don't bother with the room service button on the phone - I pressed it my first night and no one answered. Pressed it the second night and reached a very unpleasant person as the front desk that...

This is a great place to stay in the heart of Athens, GA. It is within walking distance of shops, restaurants, Georgia University, and many other attractions. I stayed here for a business conference and the facilities were top notch. The restaurant has a great breakfast and the servers really attend to you. I even saw a manager taking time... More

Having stayed at this hotel several times in the past we thought we would try it again. I really liked the "concept" of no smoking in the entire hotel (silly me) since I have a very adverse reaction to smoke. To get around the "no smoking" in the rooms, one cunning visitor to the hotel decided to smoke in the... More
