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

This hotel is a shining example of the Hilton Garden Inn brand. In addition to being in an excellent location in downtown Athens and adjacent to the UGA campus, it is a lovely hotel. The front desk staff are very nice and welcoming, and the lobby and restaurant areas are clean and attractive. I was able to select my room... More

The staff was fantastic with our crazy groups. Super helpful and amazing service. The only complaints I have is the lack of parking for our van and not having breakfast included for our group. But everything else was amazing!

This Hotel was right across from the classic center. We could walk to resturants as well as classic center. It was very nice but not as updated as I thought Hilton should be. Smelled fine, and was clean other then my tub. Breakfast was very good at good price. Staff was very nice. You could tell customer service was most... More

This is a very lovely hotel in a great location. We could walk to all the shops, restaurants and a Starbucks 2 blocks away. Easy walk to the Univ. of GA campus which is beautiful. Pool small but nice. Service good. Nice buffet breakfast (price not included).

We have stayed at this and other Hilton Gardens in other states and find this to be one of the better ones. More like a Hotel, less transit. We will stay here again the future as our travels may require. We have family in the town and come on a regular basis to visit them

Nice location, but room in horrible condition. Not what you would expect out of a Hilton hotel and probably one of the worst Hilton Garden Inn hotels I have seen. Clean but wallpaper peeling, shower tiles missing, leak stains on ceiling....
