I recently stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn for the first time, and was pleasantly surprised. Having spent most my stays in Michigan either at the Westin (DTW) or in the outlying suburbs, I decided it was time to try something new. My rating is in relation to other value chains.
Pros: Great service in the dining area, especially in the morning (kudos to Dennis!). Food was the biggest surprise for me, good selection and prepared nicely. Lobby area is small but not cramped, nicely appointed and functional for check-in, dining, or a beer/wine. Rooms were decent size, and good selection of tv channels (LCD). Workout area had nice equipment (but maintenance not so great, see below).
Cons: Maintenance in general. Only one elevator was functional during my stay, which created long wait times (but easily cured for me by taking stairs). Not a large issue in itself but noteworthy as it seems thematic for this hotel. The gym needed attention as both treadmills seemed inoperable and the eliptical was missing a handle (which another guest said had been the case for one month). The climate control in my room was functional, but slightly loud for a wall mounted unit. Speaking of noise, if you're an extremely light sleeper (not myself), you may focus on the incoming planes as this location is directly in the flight path and the windows do not seem adequately designed for the location. Last but not least in my book, the water pressure in the shower was equivalent to a watering can.
In Summary: Great value for one or two night stints. The dining and service pushed this from average to very good for me. I tend to put a lot of weight behind those two aspects, as they are becoming increasingly neglected these days.
