“Very Nice Hotel, WONDERFUL front desk!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

My wife and I were visiting Tarrytown NY recently and had planned on camping nearby but found that our campground was closed. I spoke with a gentleman in a gas station who directed me to Danbury and this was the first hotel we came to (it was getting late, and we were not in the mood to shop around!) Both Donna and I were very pleased with the hotel, it was very clean and in a very convenient location. The front desk workers were wonderful especially Jacqueline on the evening shift (I know I am misspelling her name). If the Hotel manager sees this ( and I hope he does) please thank her for her kindness to two tired people visiting from Lookout Mountain Tennessee. Rarely do we stay in business hotels, but from now on, when we do, your chain will be the first we look for.

We had a baby shower in Bethel, CT and found this hotel, booking unseen, based on Trip Advisor reviews. It was an easy ride from the Cape, albeit long, and we were pretty tired upon check in. They made it easy and pleasant, and we were in the door and in our room in less than 5 minutes. The room was clean, large, and our view, even though the hotel is right off the highway, was of the mountains and train tracks, during peak foliage season. Gorgeous. The pool is a salt water pool, and while small, it served the purpose, as did the jacuzzi and gym room. The food in the restaurant was delicious and affordable, and the staff, all of them, from front desk to room service, were pleasant, professional and over the top helpful in any needs we had. NY is literally 5 minutes away, and we were able to get out with a friend and sightsee the quaint surroundings. There is a shopping center right down the road and everything is completely accessible from the airport to the mall, from this hotel. There is even a gas fed firepit you can sit around and sip wine at night, very relaxing. Affordable, too. I'd definitely ask for a room facing the railroad track, when you book, and you won't even know you're near a highway! I'd stay there again! Absolutely!

Room Tip: Back room, facing away from the highway, they are quieter with beautiful mountain/train track views.

This hotel met our expectations and exceeded them: friendly and professional staff, clean and accommodating rooms, great wi-fi, air conditioning which stays on all night, good size refrigerator. Plus, it's in a very scenic area of Connecticut. What's not to like! We would go out of our way to stay here again.

Good hotel to stay for a business trip. Free Wifi, good american breakfast included. The hotel offered free on demand shuttle service and pick-up (to/from whichever place you need to go/are in the area).
Helpful and friendly staff.
The highway nearby is a little noisy but this does not matter as long as you keep the window closed.

Room Tip: not looking towards the highway makes the room more silent

This hotel met my needs for a late-night arrival following a wedding. It was located one block from the entrance to Route 84, and was a short walk from Starbucks first thing in the morning. Room rate was very low. The check-in process was quick and friendly. My room was way down the hall from the elevator, which I wanted. The bed was extremely comfortable! (If you care about hotel decor, it was strange. The lobby was fairly bland and looked like almost every other similar hotel of the type. But the hallways must've been recently renovated because they looked like Las Vegas hotel hallways - ulta-modern colors and shapes trying to be hip. It didn't match the lobby or the bedrooms. The bedrooms were fairly standard in decor, and the wood furniture appeared outdated in my opinion.) I noticed that the elevator carpet wasn't vacuumed. Car and truck noise from Route 84 opposite the hotel's access road might bother some people. You can view the proximity on a satellite image.

Room Tip: Request a room on the opposite side of the hotel of Route 84.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel, we appreciate it! I am glad you had a comfortable stay. We just renovated our guest rooms last summer, along with our corridors. Our guest room case goods are due for renovation next year, and our hotel lobby and restaurant will be renovated this winter. We are very excited to bring a new and improved hotel to the area!

We arrived at the Hilton Garden Inn after midnight, exhausted from a long and lovely wedding, but despite the late time we received some of the best customer service ever. The woman at the front desk was friendly and kind and got us checked in quickly. We got up to our room, which had a comfortable king bed, a refrigerator, coffee maker, hair dryer, charging stations for electronic devices and some of the nicest bath products ever. Unfortunately, we had been placed right next to the elevator and we could hear it ringing repeatedly as loud guests got on and off.

We called down to the front desk asking if they could possibly move us to a quieter room and within minutes, an employee arrived with keys to a new room in a quieter section of the building. We moved our luggage over, took a shower and passed out (but not before adjusting the firmness of our beds - what a fantastic feature!). It was my only good night's sleep during the entire trip.

In the morning, we didn't realize we arrived to breakfast 5 minutes before the restaurant downstairs was closing. They graciously accommodated us and we ordered and paid out our server quickly. The food was fantastic and reasonably priced.

I would definitely stay here again in the future and highly recommend it to anyone wanting a great sleep.

Room Tip: Ask to be placed away from the elevator because you can hear it ringing inside your room.

Just stayed here for one evening. The hotel was very convenient right off the highway. Also, Starbucks & Trader Joe's are located a minute away. The lobby area very welcoming with coffee, tea, and cookies. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and check-in/check-out was smooth with no issues.

We came in later at night and were very tired. The room appeared clean & tidy. However, because I have worked in hotel management for over 7 years I tend to be picker and maybe in a bit more critical of hotels over the average person. I always do a bed check, pulling the sheets back. The sheets and pillow cases were all wrinkled as if they had not been changed. I would have called housekeping but again, because we came in at night, we were too exhausted and tired to have to wait for someone to come and change them. I frequently stay in hotels, so it just seemed a bit strange that they were so wrinkled? Maybe just a fluke? Needless to say, we should have called for I didn't sleep well...

The bathroom seemed clean except for the floor that had hairs on it and did not seem very clean. It was just for one night so it was ok, but if we were staying longer, we would have called about it.

For the price, it would have been nice if breakfast was included.

Would possibly consider staying again if I needed to be in the area because of the convenient location.
