Hotel has had some upgrades but you still feels worn out/heavily trafficked. Bed was so uncomfortable, mattress was hard and all the bedding is scratchy/loud. Usually love Hilton Garden Inns but this one is not my favorite at all. Breakfast is $12.95 per person BTW.More

Everyone at the hotel was accommodating, helpful, and took care of every question that I asked. Room service took longer than estimated, but was good food that was hot when it arrived. Cost is a little high, but well worth the cost.
