I travel to Leiden several times a year and I am also a Hilton Gold Card member. So, I figure I should try out the Hilton Garden. I arrived in Leiden from Chicago in the morning. Check in was effortless, but I didn't have too many choices of rooms. Either on the level of the parking or overlooking the highway on the rear side. I took the highway side. The room was surprisingly very quiet; no noise from the cars on the highway. The room was modern, spacious with many amenities. The bathroom was also modern, with a wonderful shower. As I have come to expect the shower has super hot water, high pressure, and precision controls. The bed has the business class comforter and mattress so my sleep was sound. Also, the room was spotless clean with very efficient housekeeping. The food is also quite nice at the hotel. The night I checked in I just dropped down to the lobby to eat dinner with a friend at the bar. The cod, risotto, and asparagus dish I ordered was very, very fresh and prepared quite well. Likewise, the buffet breakfast has many choices of cold dishes, fruit, breads, eggs, etc. Service was also good at the hotel. I had problems with my company computer and internet access and the hotel quickly arranged for a technical expert from the internet provider to help me. Now for the location: My business is in the Biotech Park in Leiden which is a nice 15 minute walk. I pass horses and pasture along the way. However, to get to Leiden center you must either bicycle or order a taxi for 13 Euros. There is nothing of interest out that way on the outskirts of Leiden.
