Friendly staff, nice room/suite so we could put kids to bed. Pool was a little cool for our kids but they loved that there were noodles/toys to play with. Didn't eat here. Located in an area with a shopping mall.

This Hilton opened in October 2012 and appears well maintained both inside and out. You are welcomed with a smile and complimentary coffee or a selection of tea's. While the price is slightly more than a regular hilton hotel ( Hampton, Doubletree,etc) you do get some added comfort features including an indoor pool, large well furnished fitness area, and a restaurant with a "made to order" chef on hand.

My 5 night stay went as smooth as any Hilton brand stay I've had, with one uncomfortable exception. I assumed the Hilton brand installed those plush, comfy cloud 9 mattresses into all their higher end hotels. I know every Hampton Inn I've stayed at in the last year had them and this includes some hotels that have been around for 10 years or so.

I choose Hampton Inn and the Hilton brand because they strive to make you feel like you are as close to your own bed and home as you can be, and usually they nail it. Knowing before I arrived that this hotel was less than a year old I assumed it had cloud 9 beds installed but was sadly mistaken the first night. While this is a small complaint and not a reason to not stay at a clean, accomodating hotel such as this. Just be aware if you stay to be prepared for a more rigid, firm bed than you might be use to.

Other than that, I would stay here again and will when I am back in Ann Arbor.

One additional hightlight is you are literally right at the mall making it very nice if you like to shop.

Room Tip: I stayed on the third floor and while this hotel is right up against the interstate I never had a si...

We stopped here on a trip to visit family in Michigan. The rooms were very nice, the staff was very helpful, the pool was great for our 8 and 11 year old daughters (and for adults). Rooms were clean and very well appointed. This is an all around very excellent hotel. We'll definitely stay here again any time we're in town.

The indoor pool was delightful and safe. Many fountains and toys are provided. The depth was inches up to 4 ft. Will definitely come back. The only downside was the breakfast. Although it was hot and tasty, the service was ridiculous. If it comes with the room for free, take it. Otherwise, I would certainly not pay extra for it.

I stayed during a stop-over on my wan to Traverse City. The room was very clean, and the environmental controls worked well. Staff was very courteous and helpful. Beautiful patio area. Definitely would stay here again.

Great Spot, Very clean, well run, quality spot. Provided nice meeting area for 11 people. free Coffee, best of all was that every thing was so clean and well run. If every Hilton was this nice there would be no Ritz Carlton or Four Seasons.

I stay at the Hilton Garden Inn two to three times a year during business travel. The staff are very friendly and the quality of the service, food, and overall hotel atmosphere is very good. The pool area is nice, particulary if staying with children. To date I have not stayed with my family, but I would definitely consider doing so. The price is a little high, but competitive with other area hotels for this time of year.
