We've stayed at both Holiday Inns downtown, and the Comfort Suites just north of downtown, all of which are fine, but this SpringHill Suites is head and shoulders above the rest. Called in advance to ask for quiet room for my parents, who are in their 70's, and Beth gave us gorgeous suites on very quiet 5th floor. At check-in, I don't think any desk clerk anywhere has been more engaging and welcoming than Christopher. Hotel is clean, beautiful and stylish. Definitely feels upscale. There's a Kroger about 5 minutes away if you need anything a supermarket would have. Minor downsides are 15 minute ride to downtown/university, no tub in our suites (though shower was huge), and not much of a fresh selection at breakfast. Overall, though, my new 1st choice to stay when visiting my kid at UGA!
