“helpful staff in new and clean hotel right on campus”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

The staff allowed me to check in early, at about 11 am. The hotel's location on campus was perfect, since I was at a campus event and parking would have been a hassle. Nearby, however, is a "main drag" that has several restaurants and stores. The exercise room is nice, with free weights, machines, and exercise balls. I left very early (before 4 am) and called down for my bill. It was ready for me when I walked by 5 minutes later -- and the clerk gave me good directions. Although I was in the hotel for fewer than 17 hours, I'm saying it's very good.

Good location near the University of Texas at El Paso. Several restraunts are located in walking distance from the hotel. Also UTEP is next door. The rooms are clean and fresh. The hotel staff are very polite.

Full Time Business Traveler: This HGI is located, literally, right on the edge of the University. Staying here expect to see plenty of students going to class/foot traffic during the day.
The hotel is an average building, nothing to look at but not displeasing. Parking(fee) is ample though one likely has to park on the parking structure which entails a little bit of an extra walk to the lobby. I recommend pulling up to the main lobby door, check in, take your bags to your room then go park (getting the key will allow the more direct access through the side door near the pool).
This is my second time staying at this HGI. Staff was friendly and helpful both times. The lobby area is nice and the restaurant/lounge area is also nice. The rooms are standard HGI rooms. They certainly are not exquisitely new but they are far from worn (closer to new than worn). All in room items were good (video/audio, environmental controls, bed, bathroom/shower). Location wise there are standard food, starbucks, marketplace very close by, It is not close to the freeway and takes crossing a handful of lights before getting there.

I recommend it. There are options with more to offer downtown and there are multiple airport options. They do have pricing that is slightly above what I consider "value" but not so pricey that I am discouraged. But this is clearly is the best option for this side of town. It provides a solid, warm, comfortable stay and I doubt you would walk away unhappy at all. I give it 3.5 out of 5.

This hotel and it's staff did an amazing job making us feel welcomed and valued! The food was amazing and made to order! Not one staff member that I encountered had a frown. They all greeted you and pampered you to the best of their abilities! As our conference was at UTEP the location was perfect we were able to walk anywhere we wanted or needed to go! Thank you to the staff for making me feel at home!

Room Tip: Ask for what you want and need and they will do everything in their power to accommodate!

I always stay here when on business in El Paso. t's very clean, quite with very professional and helpful staff. Breakfast is served, as well as cocktails and light dinner. The location is right next to Providence memorial Hospital, UTEP and Las Palmas Medical Center. Close to downtown. 10 minutes from airport.

We've been coming to El Paso on business for almost a year. We stayed at several different properties originally -- mostly those near the airport or downtown. None of them really impressed us, and a few actually depressed us or annoyed us for various reasons. Then we tried the Hilton Garden Inn near the university. Since that first time, we have always tried to stay here whenever they have availability. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful, and they even remember us and act genuinely glad that we're back. (For a couple of Road Warriors -- this is a delight!) Rooms are nice, well lit, and clean. Breakfast can be good or just okay, but it's always convenient. The hotel is near a lot of other dining options for dinner. The fitness center has more cardio equipment than many other Garden Inns, and is clean and well-lit with functioning equipment (in contrast to many other hotels).

Room Tip: If you are a Diamond member, request the upgrade to the suites.
