“Good but not great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

We arrived at 9:30 PM on a Tuesday evening to check in and...there was no one around. I mean no one. There was no bell to ring or any way to really summon someone. After about 10 minutes, a hurried, somewhat irritable young lady appeared and rushed us through the check in process. It was odd--I'd never had an experience quite like that. The room itself was fine, but there was weird, piled up dirt in the light switches. We decided to try the breakfast, but I'd suggest skipping it: They seemed put out to actually make a "breakfast to order" (although they tout it). I asked for eggs over hard and ended up with an omelette thing. It was all okay, but, next time, we'll try someplace else. (One tip for the air conditioning units at Hilton Garden Inns: If you set the fan to the "on" setting, they won't cycle on and off and keep you awake.)

We stayed in a suite which was excellent, very large and very clean. The TV on demand was very helpful. All staff were very friendly. Evening meal and bespoke cooked breakfast were both delicious and good value. Annapolis is an easy drive from Washington airport and a delightful place to visit.

first visit to annapolis. This was about a 10 min drive and just out of the quaint downtown marina. Still totally worth the drive for the value. Place was so nice. Our room was pretty much perfect. All staff greeted you with a smile and marybeth was super at check in. Outdoor Pool and whirlpool was closed for season which was a bummer since it was 90 but I understood. Near everything as far as CVS, chains stores and restauants. Really a nice experience for our mommy-daddy getaway weekend. Thanks.

We stayed here because it was centrally located to places we wished to visit (ie: DC, Annapolis, Six Flags America). Suite was great. Pool was nice. Staff were absolutely the best. We have no complaints and would definitely stay again.

Stayed one night for business. Clean rooms and the staff here is terrific! Genuine service oriented staff and they were a pleasure to be around. Got a GREAT restaurant referral from the front desk on a seafood Restaurant nearby. Breakfast was very good.

We checked in late and it was nice to find the coffee and tea still fresh and available in the hotel lobby. The room was clean. We were mildly disappointed that room service stopped at 10 pm. We did make a purchase from the Pavilion Pantry and were disappointed when we got back to the room to find that one of the ice cream bars had been melted and re-frozen. It was a mess, however it was readily exchanged for one in perfect condition. The air conditioner seemed to have a problem as it would cycle on and off through the night - the room was never the right temperature - it was either too hot or too cold - giving us both a fitful night's sleep. There was also a rhythmic pounding that woke us up in the morning. Perhaps the laundry is above the room we were given. Hopefully that was just an anomaly.

Even though everything else about the hotel was excellent, the room design was absolutely terrible! We were in a suite and because of the louvered doors between the bedroom and living room and poor soundproofing, when the TV was on in the living room, it blasted in the bedroom making sleep impossible even when the TV was on low volume. We have never had this problem in any other hotel where we have stayed. For that reason we would not return to this hotel and were extremely disappointed in our stay there.

Lucille G:

Thank you for your response. I'm glad you found most of our accommodations to be up to par. I am sorry to hear that our room type did not meet up to par with other Hilton Garden Inns that you've been too. We will do our best to try and rectify this matter and we hope that you give us another chance when you are in the area again.

Again, thank you for your time and consideration.
