Staying at this Hilton Garden Inn was one of my best hotel experiences. Between the Hilton Honors perks, the quality of the rooms, and the service of the staff, I couldn't have asked for anything more.

If you are a "Light Sleeper" watch for the room does not faces the highway, otherwise you will be up once your deep sleep time passes. The other item is the air conditioning system that starts and shuts off like every 9 minutes which will also contribute to stay awake many times during your intended resting time. Facilities are great,...

Surprisingly quite considering how close to the freeway it is. It's a very nice hotel and all the staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The kurig makes a nice first cup of coffee and the breakfast was very good. They had a wide selection plus making eggs, omelets, waffles... to order.

Quieter than some other hotels I've stayed at recently. Thick walls so it was easy to sleep. Friendly staff that made everything from check-in to check-out very smooth. Parking was adequate, the lobby and rooms very clean as well.,

This hotel is exactly what I'm looking for when I'm visiting Lake Forest (Mettawa). It is always clean and everything works right the first time - that's a must. The front desk staff is always helpful and friendly. You are a quick drive (within 10 minutes) of numerous eating options, and a mall if that's your thing. This HGI's restaurant/bar...

The rooms were large but the bath had mould and the windows appeared to have no sound proofing whatsoever, which as I was on the side of the hotel that overlooks the freeway was a bit of an issue. I did not ask to be moved to be honest as I was already unpacked and in to a long business...

I liked the room that I had, but I didn't like that this was the only room within the Hilton line within 12 miles available. This was a hefty price to pay. I would stay with them again, but the price that they are charging gives me pause.
