The hotel is in a great location, only a 2 minute drive from the BJC and Stadium. You could easily walk there. The only reason for 3 stars is the hotel could use an update. It’s not bad but is definitely showing the sign of use.

Easy to recommend. We arrived very late but our requested rooms were ready. Rooms were clean, bed was comfortable, and it was QUIET! Friendly staff. Parking is easy to come and go. I’ll stay here again in future visits.

Did not get to the Bryce Jordan Center to a wrestling match because they would not pick you up at the Center. They should have told the customers this when they booked rooms for this event. Take you there BUT find your own way back to the Hilton Garden Center!!!!!

Dear Travel24587596463, We are very sorry for the problem you had with our shuttle service. With sold out events at the Stadium and The Bryce Jordan Center, the police directed traffic makes it difficult to pick up our guests due to the traffic congestion. When you checked in at our hotel, Kendra kindly advised you we would be unable to pick you up and advised you of the alternatives available to return to the hotel. We sincerely regret and apologize that you were not fully informed at the time of your reservation as it is our standard policy to advise guests of our return policy. Thank you for staying with us and we do hope to have another opportunity to serve you.

Cold shower water and hearing the rooms above us flush their toilet was our biggest complaint. For the area, the restaurant was good. Enjoyed the jacuzzi in the room. Rooms were clean and decently sized.

Our room did not have a whirlpool tub and I do not know if any of their rooms have. There is a nice hot tub in the swimming pool room.

"we chose an end room to lesson noise with easy access to the back exit where the car was parked."
"Room 200. Lobby level at the quiet end of the hall."
"We stayed on the 2nd floor which is the main floor. Room was quiet and spacious. I don't think there is any room that would not work."
"Rooms on the 2nd floor, same level as front desk."
"Some rooms on the hotel map are marked as "quiet location""
