This is the third time I have stayed at this hotel and I am always pleased. It is very clean, aesthetically pleasing, quiet, conveniently located to the event center with easy access to downtown. Very war and welcoming, the staff is amazingly friendly and helpful.

The hotel was extremely awesome. A good place to spend the night for the hotel and scenery. Hot tub was not working when I stayed with family though the staff was very friendly and very clean rooms. Food was exceptional!

Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we are doing. I apologize for our hot tub situation, we got it back up and running as quickly as possible. We are very fortunate to be able to partner with Olives Restaurant, as they do a fantastic job for our property. More

The Brunch was disappointing-items were not replenished and things were cleared while I was still eating! I do not feel I got my value for the price of the brunch. The bed was very hard to the touch-it didn't sleep all that bad but felt very firm. Not very welcoming....

The Hilton Garden Inn was very comfortable, very quiet, and the restaurant has some of the best food I've had in a while. The staff/bartenders/food servers were very friendly and accommodating... I look forward to visiting again.

Will be back. Room was quiet and food at Olive's is great. Only complaint I have is that there was a dumpster pick up at 5:30 AM which woke me up. Other than that I enjoy staying at this property. Just remember to take your room key with you in order to leave the parking ramp. If you don't you... More

Parking is at adjacent city garage. Need to park several levels up, go down to ground level, cross street to hotel entrance. So not easy to get back into hotel, no skywalk to hotel. No complimentary breakfast.

Thanks you for choosing to stay with us and for your comments. As the parking structure is owned by the city we are only issued a limited number of Hilton spots in the ramp, and they are located between the 2nd and 3rd levels. There is ample parking in the structure, but make sure to not park in the "RESERVED"... More

Hilton properties are the best. I always look forward to staying in Hilton properties. This location provided excellent service and the employees were always smiling, happy and friendly. Thanks for making my stay away from home a very pleasant experience.

This is a high quality hotel in a good location. Rooms are clean and quiet. The restaurant on site is good but pricey. There are better restaurants in walking distance for same or less money. I stayed here before and would stay again.
