I traveled to Ogden to teach a workshop at Weber State University the first week in August and we stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn.
The hotel is newer and very nicely decorated. We paid a little extra for the breakfast buffet package and it was totally worth it. The buffet was outstanding alone, but the package allowed us made to order dishes like omelettes, waffles, and eggs cooked to order. It was a delicious start to the day.
Each evening, ice water and lemonade was available along with oatmeal cookies that were very tasty. Coffee and tea (and even cocoa mix) was available all day long. This was a very nice touch. As other reviewers have said, there were many restaurants and attractions within walking distance of the hotel that made things very convenient. There is even a Catholic church about a block away - something I definitely took advantage of.
A special note needs to be made about the desk clerk, Todd Light. He was tremendously helpful during our stay. Part of our work for the week included a great deal of shopping to get supplies needed for the lab work we do for the workshop. Todd was quick to help us locate the nearest Wal*Mart, Harbor Freight and Home Depot. He printed Google directions for us and this made our shopping so quick and convenient we were able to enjoy the hotel amenities and nearby attractions...something that doesn't always happen during these workshops. He was a great help and went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable.
I am hopeful I'll get to conduct the workshop at Weber State again next summer and if I do, I know I'm definitely staying at the Hilton Garden Inn.
