“Great Experience”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn during a recent business trip. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel and accommodations were up great. And the location to the Classic Center for our conference was perfect. Parking was not an issue, as the hotel has it's own parking garage. Would highly recommend this Hilton Garden Inn to other travelers.

Accommodations were very nice! We came to Athens for a three-day event at the Classic Center just across the street from this hotel. The hotel is very convenient to the center. Located at the edge of downtown, it is also within easy walking distance for many restaurants and the UGA north campus. Self-parking is available in the adjacent parking garage (note the extra fee for parking). The rooms were what we have come to expect from a well-managed Hilton Garden Inn. Staff members were friendly and helpful.

I stayed two weeks a go for 5 nights(3/11-3/15/14) I felt the location was excellent but a few snafus kept my stay from being hassle free. The plumbing had kinks. My tub did not drain properly the first two days and the bathroom sink did not drain properly at all. The pool area bathroom toilet would not flush at all. The pool and hot tub were closed on two differnt days that I visited. One day the maids forgot to restock the bathroom and after alerting the front desk for replacements I was told the items would be sent up immediately but the clerk forgot my room number and I called back almost two hours later before getting restocked. The hotel had several middle school/high school students staying for a convention. The middle school bunch were very loud, running in the halls and played soccer on the floor & in a elevator.(which they dinged up) I also called the front desk and the kids did behave better after the 2nd night. The hotel needs to ensure every thing is in working order and adequate staff/security on hand at all times.
The kinks need to be corrected before this hotel is top notch.

Room Tip: Do not face the classic center, busy and loud street.

Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Athens GA

My wife and I have stayed here a half-dozen or so times and always liked it. Clean and new looking and importantly has ample self parking (for an extra fee) in an attached garage with a dedicated floor entirely for guests of the Hilton. Only two short blocks from a main corner of campus and the main drag. They offer breakfast for a fee in an area off the bar but you may be better going to one of the usual eating places on the main roads out of town.

This was a great hotel right in the heart of downtown Athens. We stayed in a corner room overlooking the Classics Center recently and were thrilled with our room there. Easy walking distance to the local restaurants, bars, and shops. Paying for the parking was a bit of an annoyance, but somewhat understandable given the area. I definitely recommend this hotel!

The nicest hotel in Downtown Athens is also the most convenient to any place that you'd want to go! We enjoy the convenient parking, the proximity to great restaurants, and the rooms that are awesome.

Business travel is made so much more delightful when staying at the Hilton Garden in Athens. Should you be attending functions at the Classic Center, the location is absolutely wonderful. In addition, the staff is very welcoming and accommodating. While the hotel is within walking distance of spectacular restaurants, the hotel restaurant menu is superb and the meals are quite delicious. I must say this is one of the best hotels I’ve had the pleasure to stay.
