“All great, one big mis-step”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

First off, there are a lot of great things about this hotel. We booked through Priceline and after an initial back-and-forth with the staff, they did get us a 2-bed room. They didn't have to do that and my family really appreciated it.

The location is great, the staff throughout was very nice. The hotel was full during our stay and the staff still helped us with everything. The rooms were big enough, the thermostat worked great for cooler weather and we didn't hear the other guests through the walls.

There is one aspect that somewhat soured the whole stay, the $9.99 charge (per person!) for breakfast. I booked two rooms for my family and breakfast at the hotel would have been an extra $70 a day! No doubt the breakfast offers more than the traditional free breakfast at a hotel, but $10 per person is a high price for families. We ended up having to leave every morning for breakfast.

Thankfully I had paid the Priceline price. If I had paid the asking price and then been hit with that charge, I would've been very upset.

Me and a few of my friends stayed in the Junior Suite on 11/17/2012 and we had a wonderful experience. We also rented the Plano Room for my Best Friends Bridal Shower and it we Beautiful. When I got there everything was already set up for me. The food was fresh and Hot. The customer Service was outstanding from the front desk all the way to the maintenance staff. I have been dealing with Cami and Emily and they are very helpful and professional. There was not a question that could not answer. It was a very smooth transition. I would do it all over again. My stay at The Hilton was wonderful. My Best Friend had a wonderful time and she told me she loved every little detail of it all. Hilton is a great place to stay and have a party. Excellent Job Hilton and Emily and Cami!!!!!

We got this hotel as a Groupon deal and used it this week to check out The Allen Premium Outlets and were very happy with the stay. The hotel was clean, had an adequate gym, outdoor pool/jacuzzi and a nice breakfast area. The hotel is 4 exits south of the Outlet mall and the Village. The Village is absolutely enjoyable for families. The kids enjoyed the "beach." on the same exit as the hotel is Watters Creek which is a very nice outdoor mall with great restaurants.

The staff were polite, the room was clean and when we come visit Allen again we would choose the Hilton Garden Inn.

I stayed at this hotel twice in October 2012. In both instance, it was OK. Rooms were typical Hilton hotel rooms--nothing remarkably good or bad. However, they appear to only provide several newspapers for an entire hotel floor in the morning and leave them near the elevator (so get up early if you want one). The breakfast staff appears to believe their job is to stand around and talk. On both of my trips, they did little or nothing to help guests. The manager needs to explain their job description to them. They are about as LAZY as possible.

We love staying at this Hilton in Allen. We stay there quite often. The only complaint this past week-end was our bed. It was horrible. Neither my husband or me got any sleep because of how uncomfortable the bed was. It felt like it had a board under it and something hard in the middle. We were in room 419.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights here with 3 other family members families. It was my husbands mother's 85 th birthday. Our stay was very nice, the room was large and clean. One of the other families had children, they loved the pool.
My only complaint was with the server at the breakfast. She left the towel she was cleaning tables with on a table so I was able to get it and wipe our table. She finally came back and got the towel and asked us what we wanted to drink, she brought the coke and oj but never brought the 2 coffees. The food was good but the service was not so much.

We stayed there for three days and was very happy with everything. The staff is excellent. When i entered my room it smelled like smoke so the man at the desk changed my room. I had trouble faxing something so they did it personally for me. On the day of checkout it was pouring with rain. The front desk clerk drove my car into the covered area so we didnt get wet. Cant ask for better service. Definently stay again!!!
