2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Had to find a room in Fargo after a blizzard came in and shut every Interstate in and out of Fargo down. $130/night after tax.

* Great location
* Very good size rooms (had booked a 2-room 2-queen bed suites), clean, modern.
* Nice common areas (elevators are a bit out of date, but otherwise very nice.)
* Pool area is fantastic (if a bit out of date)

* No glasses/cups in the room, just the cups that come with the coffee (??).
* Bed's are horrible, as mentioned in other reviews. Pillows are also pretty bad.
* Heating/AC system is pretty bad - window unit that is supposed to control the entire suite. There is a bulkhead/fan that is supposed to move air, but very ineffective.
* Friend had Salmon from the restaurant for takeout, $28 for a fillet and it included NO sides. Ouch. Not even some rice, veggies, etc. This ain't a fine restaurant. Not sure if it was an oversight or if that was supposed to be the case.

We booked 2 rooms through Expedia by way of 2 separate reservations (didn't allow me to book 2 rooms on one go through their mobile site). Unfortunately, 1 of the 2 reservations was never communicated to the hotel. The hotel would not honor the other reservation (even though we printed both out at the business center). Standing at the front desk while Expedia and the hotel clerks argued with each other about who's fault it was is pretty irritating. Front desk manager and clerks could have simply resolved it by saying that they would guarantee they would not be charging Expedia -- and that Expedia should refund us. The good news is that the Reservation Manager the next day ensured me he would speak to Expedia (if I called Expedia and they called him), and guarantee them that he would not be charging Expedia for the reservation they never received. The front desk commented that they have issues with Expedia reservations.

All in all, you can probably find better. The Hilton Garden Inn across the parking lot looking good but not sure what it is like inside.

Thank you for your comments and feedback. We are happy to hear we were able to accomodate you during the recent blizzard. We are having maintenance look into the AC/Heater unit that was in the room you stayed in to fix any problems that it is having. In regards to our restaurant some of our menu options are a la carte which do not includes sides and are available seperately. I am happy to hear we were able to figure out your Expedia reservation and they did not charge you for the second room and you were able to try out some of our wonderful services and amenities. We look forward to you visiting again and hope it is not becasue of the weather! Thanks!
