“Centrally Located in an Interesting Building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

This property is located in a former downtown department store, and there were a few more interesting turns from the elevator to our room than we'd find in a typical HGI.

The front desk employee was friendly and efficient. There is an outside parking lot, but we took advantage of the free underground parking, accessible with the room key.

The room itself was not too large and generally so-so - some updating might be in order. We chose to consider it "charming," and a little different from the usual chain hotel cookie-cutter mold.

Count us among those who don't really like the Sleep Number beds, and this one marred our night's sleep. That's a matter of individual opinion though and we realize others like them.

Breakfast the next morning was above average for HGI, with friendly coffee service and nicely cooked omelets.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would return.

This is a wonderful hotel with friendly staff, clean rooms and a fabulous breakfast. The lobby is cozy and a comfortable place to gather for morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. It is extremely kids friendly while maintaining a upscale atmosphere.

This was my first visit to Yakima, WA. The Hilton Garden Inn was recommended by both friends and co-workers. They were right. This is a great hotel and they have great staff. The location is great. Right in downtown, and the access to the airport is very convenient. I highly recommend this property!

The inside of the hotel is very nice, the outside parking is limited and not in a good part of town. There is an underground parking that is secure but its very tight parking. The front desk staff was rude, the rest of the staff was very pleasant to talk with.

Clean and comfortable. However the customer service was atrocious. Front desk attendant was arrogant and unwilling to listen to customer concerns. Maybe it had something to do with my disability, as she treated me as an unworthy guest. If service is unimportant and all you w ant is a clean comfortable room then this is the place for you.

I appreciate you choosing to stay at the Hilton Garden Inn when traveling to Yakima and I am pleased to hear that the accommodations and cleanliness were up to your expectations. I want to thank you for reaching out to me regarding your experience with the front desk while staying with us in Yakima. I am very disappointed that you felt that you were being discriminated against due to your disability. The agent that you interacted with has a child with disabilities and feels horrible that you left feeling this way. We strive on great customer service at our hotel and I can assure you that we will utilize this experience as a learning tool to make improvements where needed. I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to share your experience and hope that we will get the opportunity to have you as our guest again in the future.

The room was super clean and very pretty. Of course, my granddaughter loved the pool and hot tub. Plenty of towels. Attendants checked frequently. Very comfy beds. Breakfast was full breakfast. Chef made whatever to order. Loved it!
