5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Answered all of my questions about the area and had awesome recommendations for local food etc. I came down to breakfast a little late so some of the breakfast items had gotten a bit luke warm but overall the selection was good and the staff was great.

I made a one night reservation on a football day and the hotel charged three times the normal rate and received my confirmation. When I checked in, I was told I would be billed an additional $30 for parking. It was not on my confirmation and I was very surprised when they sprung this charge on me. "Guest beware if... More

Thank you for your comments. We are happy to hear that you could join us for the first football game of the season. Our rates are higher than normal on football weekends.

We were in town for just a single night. We very much enjoyed the hotel location, close to all the downtown restaurants and other night spots. We had a "king" room and found it comfortably large. There was a small work desk, an easy chair, microwave/frig/coffee pot, and decent size closet. The hotel staff was very helpful. A young man... More

My experience was excellent. I stayed for two nights. We were Walsh distance from everything at the Classic Center and I never moved my car after parking it. Several local restaurants were close and served good food.

I was visited my daughter she goes to the university of Georgia. The only negative is its hard to book a room. There are many restrictions and I wish you could book further out. I enjoy staying here, the location is ideal

Nice hotel with good staff to help your stay go good. Near down town so easy to walk around and have a good dinner or a quick bite to eat. A couple blocks from the university if that's your destination.

This Hilton Garden Inn is 2o close to downtown Athens and UGA activities. We experienced a cleanroom, a great bar and extremely nice folks at check in. We will be back here for the next parent's weekend.

I expect more from the Hilton brand than what this hotel provided. I didn't necessarily have a bad experience but know I could have stayed at a number of other less expensive hotels and received the overall same experience and quality.
