This is an extremly clean and comfortable hotel. My room had a comfortable king-size bed, a large flat screen TV , desk and love seat. I used the fitness center that provided headphones for each TV. I also used the pool. The lobby is very inviting with a gas fireplace. There are lots of windows and comfortable seats. I would... More

The room was clean and somewhat comfortable. However, this hotel does not seem to be the typical Hilton Garden Inn. The hotel is noisy. As I walked through the Corredor I could hear people in the rooms. I could hear everything as I try to go to sleep. I woke up hearing everything is well. The bar close before 11... More

The only bad thing I have to say is that my sister and brother-in-law had a different room and were very disappointed with the bed - sagged horribly in the middle. Our room was fine, the staff was friendly and helpful.

I have no clue why the review has to be so long but John is pretty cool. He works the front desk. He helped my boyfriend surprise me with roses and set up dinner reservations for us. The rooms are clean and the halls smell nice.

While most hotel restaurants exist based upon convenience and guests desire to stay put once checked in this is not the case here. Harrison's is worth a stop whether you are staying at this hotel or not. The resturant features a varied menu and speciality items that are freshly prepared. While really having no "decor" to speak of the food... More

We booked a King room with a whirlpool tub, when we arrived the vent in the room was rattling so loudly we could barely hear ourselves talking. The garbage had also not been emptied. The staff member switched us to another room which did not have a tub...but that was ok with me since I wasn't impressed with the cleanliness.... More

Lobby was beautiful, and the staff was very inviting. One of the nicer hotels I have stayed at in a long time. Pool/hot tub were very clean. Great value for the money and close to the attractions I was there for. Would chose this hotel again for sure!
