Fastest airport shuttle pickup ever. Wonderful start to the stay. Front desk staff was great, room was clean and large, internet work well, etc. And the bathroom was larger than other hotels rooms. Seriously.
Not much close by to eat, but there is a nice Cajun place behind the hotel on the side road.
My only disappointment with Hilton Gardens (in general) is the breakfast. The food is fine, but the price range between hotels is all over the place, and it seems a bit high at $12.95 plus tax for a buffet breakfast in Baton Rouge.
I will stay here again and would recommend this property.
