My wife and I had the opportunity to stay a couple of nights at this property for a local event with our daughter and grandchildren. We don’t typically stay at Garden Inn’s and were pleasantly surprised by a great experience. Checkin was fast and the front desk staff, including Kendra, were very pleasant, welcoming and accommodating. After settling into our room which was clean and large with a comfortable bed, we went downstairs to the restaurant/bar. The menu was “gourmet” with diverse options. The lasagna and the meatballs were great, all of the food was quite good, and the service was excellent. One of the highlights, and another surprise, were the cocktails on the menu. The bar is stocked with top shelf items, and Josh - the restaurant manager I believe - is a fantastic mixologist that created a wonderful variety of unique cocktails to choose from. Our favorite was the Accona Rose - Four Roses Bourbon, Elderflower Liqueur, Gran Gala, Hickory Smoked Ice Cube (yes - you read that correctly) and Calabrian Chili - wow - it was amazing. Cocktails and service like we were in downtown Manhattan at a five star restaurant - without the NY prices... My wife and I called Josh for the specific measures and he was happy to oblige which we really appreciated! The gym was small but clean and had good equipment to get in a good workout. The team also did a great job in providing hand sanitizer in locations where required and posted social distancing and mask requirements to make for a safe and comfortable environment. This was our first return to a hotel post COVID and we were more comfortable than expected. Kudos to the management team at this facility as they have created a culture of staff that enjoys their work, and is clearly focused on quality and guest satisfaction.

This is your typical Hilton Garden Inn which means clean, comfortable and friendly staff. The restaurant was closed for breakfast so not much of a option as a Diamond member. That is my only complaint.

Kendra & John at the Front Desk were extremely welcoming and polite. They upgraded us to a jacuzzi room just because and made us feel like family. Will definitely visit there again on our next travel to PA!

During my stay, I left my item in the hotel, the Hotel Exe. Housekeeper Kara Willett shipped the item to my residence. That was really a surprise. I have been travelling 18 years for my career, this amazed me. Keep up the good work.
