I stayed at this Hilton Garden Inn back in February 2013 for a whole week of a business trip. I always stay at Hiltons but usually never give the Hilton Garden Inn's a chance. I was definitely impressed overall with the HGI and may have to consider staying at them more often.
I was greeted on a late Sunday night/Monday early morning with a very friendly front desk agent who gave me a good feel for the area with where to visit, etc.
The room that I stayed in was very clean and spacious and I couldn't have asked for anything better. I also really enjoyed how this hotel shares a parking lot with a local restaurant/brewhouse. They had really good food there for pretty good prices as well! I also noticed a ton of other different places to eat within a mile or two so you seriously couldn't ask for a better location.
The location was a little bit off of the highway/airport but not too bad of a drive so I didn't mind it especially not being from the area and seeing new landscape.
If I am ever in the Jacksonville area again I will definitely be returning to this hotel and will be looking to stay at more Hilton Garden Inn's when I get the chance.
