“Average hotel, nothing special.”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Location in Downtown Athens is wonderful but the hotel itself isn't that impressive. Rooms were clean, room service food was average for this type of hotel. If you stay there take advantage of the many good restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.

We have been coming to Athens for the past 5 years having two children attending school at UGA. Although there are other good options and new hotels, (like the Indigo) the Hilton Garden Inn remains the best for accessibility to downtown, football games (easy walk to the stadium), and dropping off students in the dorms on main campus. It's also great to be able to park at the hotel and not have to worry about the hassle of parking downtown. (although they will charge a daily parking fee.)

Very consistent, conformable hotel, with large rooms, refrigerator, and free coffee in the lobby.

Room Tip: King Rooms come with refrigerators and adjustable beds.

Friendly service, reserved parking, typical Hilton rooms and convenient to downtown walking everywhere, just far enough from the main bars to be quit. Though some rooms are a bit noisy next to the ac units.

The great hotel is in a perfect location downtown, walking distance to good shopping and good restaurants. The staff is really friendly, even going so far as to send cookies up to our room when they knew we were going to be home late. Comfortable beds.

The location was great, and the room large and spacious, with a coffee maker in the room. Nothing special, but comfortable. You have to pay extra for parking, and there really isn't anyone to help to get your luggage from the parking garage to your room (no elevator in the garage.) Walking distance to good restaurants and "old campus", which is nice. Downtown Athens is a thriving scene.

Room Tip: My view was of the parking lot, so you might want to ask for a view of the town or campus if one is...

Stayed here for a group trip. Reserved 5 rooms. No problems, hotel was great. Service was great. Rooms were spacious and clean with microwave and refrigerators including two complimentary waters in each room. The front desk workers were excellent. Asked for recommendations for students and they printed out directions to a local bowling alley for us. I would recommend this hotel. The location is great for conferences scheduled for the Classic Center. Breakfast was wonderful and worth the extra for the bed and breakfast package.

Went here while on busiess trip, walking distance to a wide variety of dining options and sight seeing. Staff were friendly and courteous, room was clean, quiet, and very nice. I also don't appreciate being charged for parking, even when reimbursed.
