Although downtown Jackson is rundown and a bit desolate, the King Edward Hilton Garden Inn is a bright spot. We stayed here twice on our way to and from Destin, Florida, and both times were greeted with the same warm welcome and great service. Our room was spacious and clean, and the hotel itself is beautiful and located in an historic building. We had breakfast on our first visit. Our omelets were delicious and the cook even checked to make sure we enjoyed them. On our way home, during our second stay, we had dinner and drinks. Again, we were treated to great service and food. The employees here aim to please.
