Had a great experience at this hotel. Of course the backdrop of the mountains helps a lot:). The area the hotel is in sits higher in elevation than anything in the city center, so the view of the range from there is very nice.
Good location, close to a lot of restaurants and shops close by...within walking distance. Access to sidewalks for great walking/running paths.
Typical Hilton Garden Inn breakfast...fresh fruit, eggs cooked to order, bread/pastries, coffee, etc. Not free, they do charge for this. The service at breakfast is a little lacking but overall well worth it.
This hotel is about a 10 minute drive to the city and 20 minute drive from Garden of the Gods.
