The hotel itself was very nice, and the location was good. The shuttle they provide was a very nice perk. My husband and I found everything was in walking distance (no more than 2 miles) so we didn't utilize it very much. The only bad thing was how horribly uncomfortable the bed was. It was the thinnest mattress I have... More

I am pleased with friendly/polite service, resourceful with whereabouts of area and polite staff. Rooms were comfortable & home away from home feel. I was able to return form training to feel comfortable to get some more work done in hotel accommodations. Fitness room is always one place I look to for my workout time if not on treadmill. i...

In the past two months, I've stayed at the Hilton Garden over 35 nights and with only a couple of exceptions, I would rate my stays excellent. And with that many nights I would expect a few bumps. It’s those “bumps” that show what a responsive group Operations Manager Bill has on site. From replacing a faulty coffee pot to... More

Stayed here for a recruiting trip at Carnegie Mellon. Nice location close to campus and within walking distance of casual restaurants and shops. King room was comfy; decor seemed pretty up to date. Good set-up for business as desk had multiple accessible outlets. Staff was friendly and valet parking was convenient. Wish they would have had a grab and go... More

Stay here 2-3 times per year by choice. Rooms are clean and comfortable, staff is helpful and eating in the hotel wont break the bank. Only issue I have is the breakfast buffet. You're kind of a captive audience. They should allow a la carte for the toast and coffee aficianados.

Really a decent experience at this hotel, don't have anything negative to say about it. I was there for less than 24 hours using the place as a stop over before heading to my next destination. The rooms are decent size and the bathrooms are large. There is also guest laundry facilities on the 6th floor and its a dollar... More

Accommodations were excellent. Was there for a doctor's appt. they have a shuttle to take you anywhere you want to go! Staff was very helpful. Only complaint was the charge for valet - should have been free if staying at the hotel.

You have to pay to park in the hotel garage. I would think that the price for the room should cover the price for parking also. If you chose not to use thier garage you have to pay to park two blocks away in a public garage
