I'm in the area occasionally on business, and frequently find the rates here very close to the Hampton Inns in the area. Given the choice, I'll take the Garden Inn every time - better rooms, more business friendly, and a much better breakfast.
This particular hotel's location is surrounded by a large selection of restaurants and has very easy access to the interstate highway. Especially convenient if you're attending an event at the Arena. Friendly, professional staff, and everything you'd expect from the hilton brand.
