“Excellent Place to Stay in Downtown Athens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

This place has an excellent downtown location, the hotel is clean, staff is friendly, it was an overall wonderful hotel experience. I'd say it was well above the average hotel experience. Lobby is welcoming, spacious, and nicely decorated. Rooms are comfortable and clean. This is now my go-to place in downtown Athens, GA. Highly recommended.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the Hilton Garden Inn on a recent work trip. The check-in was smooth and the service was excellent with a smile. Our room on the 5th floor did not have the most glamorous view (the parking deck), but that was a non-issue. The room was clean, the bathroom was spacious, and the bed slept great. The thing that puts this property over the top is location. Within a minute walk you're in downtown Athens and two minutes puts you on the campus of the University of Georgia. You cannot be more centrally located than this location. And to top it off parking is free. You will not regret staying here on your trip to Athens.

My wife and I received excellent service during my stay at the Athens, GA - Hilton Garden Inn. Our room was clean, we receive a great night's rest, and we woke up refreshed. The location is very convenient, a very short walk, to downtown Athens and the University of Georgia campus.

I stayed here for a night on business and it was terrific! Front desk staff was really pleasant and helpful. Hotel is brand new by all appearances and very well done. Nice bar area with helpful staff. Room was comfortable and all though I'm not a coffee drinker I did note that they had a Keurig machine in the room for those that do partake.... Location was right in the heart of this great college town with plenty of shops, restaurants and bars within walking distance. Price was only $149 for a king room. Great value!

We had an excellent stay just like the other times we had stayed there for the Georgia State Social Studies Convention. The location couldn't be any better! The last night we were there, we played cards in the bar and sipped on hot tea. Couldn't have had a better time!!

I stayed during a recent UGA football game but found the nightly charges obscene - even for game weekends. ~ $350 per night not including $10 parking fee per night and sales taxes!!! I stay in NYC for less than that.
The property is nice with comfortable beds and nicely appointed rooms. Staff was very friendly and professional from front desk to bar and house keeping.
There are noise issues when the hotel is sold out. We heard lots of children crying as well as a few late night party goers returning to the hotel.
The location can't be beat but with the recent increase in price compared to previous years, I am going to have to reconsider this as an option for future UGA home games.

Room Tip: High floor away from elevators
