“Nice Stay in Ann Arbor, away from the crowd of Detroit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Hilton Garden Inn, Ann Arbor is a hotel with the true Hilton Spirit. Around 45 minutes drive from Detroit Airport, it is located in the suburb of Ann Arbor, away from downtown Detroit. It is located in the periphery of Brairwood circle, which is a hub of good shopping options like Brairwood store, Von Maur etc. After finishing your daily duties we can come to the hotel warm up and then go to Brairwood Circle for shopping. There are lot many market places in and around Ann Arbor and it is cheaper than big places like Chicago.

Hilton Garden Inn is a medium sized four storied hotel. Rooms are very neat and spacious. For that matter the whole hotel, its sorroundings and the Brairwood Circle is clean, In the morning, one can go for a walk around the Brairwood Circle, which takes about 30 minutes. The walk in the morning sun in the month of June was very rejuvenating.

Breakfast facilities and 24 hour tea/ coffee are available in the ground floor near reception. The reception staff is very cooperative and welcoming. When i didn't like the view from the room allotted to me, I told them and they immediately changed it. Like many other Hilton Hotels, this Hilton Garden Inn also don't have a restaurant for lunch or dinner. But there are many options around, like the whole food market, Ashoka, Indian Cuisine, etc.

Room Tip: Some rooms towards the front in the first or second floor have a view to the A/C blower area which i...

Hi ngkunni,

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with a great review of your recent stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Ann Arbor. It sounds like you had a very pleasant stay earlier this year. As you mentioned, we are in the Briarwood Mall circle and convenient to many shopping and dining options. Of course, we do have the Garden Grille and Bar at the hotel that is available for breakfast, dinner and room service as an option if you are not looking to leave the hotel in the morning or evening.

We hope the next time you are in the area that we see you again!

Kind Regards,
Christina Bell

New looking hotel (though its a few years old). Still looks brand new. Great job maintaining the hotel. Nice areas outside to lounge in (2). Restaurant and desk staff very friendly. I had a issue with my hotel bill (dates not the charges) that was quickly rectified by Assistant GM A.P.

The hotel is next to I-94, so you do hear some of the traffic, but not enough to annoy you or keep you from sleeping.

The hotel is next to a big mall with plenty of restaurants in the mall and nearby. Near the U of Michigan.

This was my second stay here in the last few months and the experience was consistent. I'd definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the front or the mall

Great place to stay for business or pleasure, located right next to the Mall, staff is exceptional. They clean the snow off your car in the Winter and the Rooms are clean and quiet. Has a great pool for kids, not far from downtown.

Hello Jerlis67,

It is such a pleasure to see you at the hotel every week. You mention the exceptional staff, but really it is exceptional guests like you that make our jobs so enjoyable. Cleaning off your car in the winter is only a small token of our appreciation!

I hope you have a wonderful week.

Kind Regards,

My husband wanted to stay a night in Ann Arbor since he went to school in nearby Ypsilanti. I would have loved something near downtown, but there were not that many options in that location, so we decided on this hotel. It was really nice! I staff were good at their jobs, one was not super friendly, but not really rude either. I loved the bright decor and the beverages in the lobby. The hotel was quiet and we really enjoyed our stay. The drive to downtown ended up not being too far, although the traffic was somewhat aggravating. I would choose this hotel again, though.

Hi KansasRose,

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with a review of your recent stay. You are right, there are not a lot of hotel options in downtown Ann Arbor. We are just about 2 miles away for the center of town and amongst the closest options. We look forward to seeing you again the next time you and your husband are in town.

Sincerely,
Christina Bell

The hotel and room was very clean and the staff was very helpful. i didnt love the location as it's basically a mall hotel. it's not walking distance to anything but the mall. The drive downtown isnt too bad but I just prefer to stay somewhere a little more central. There's quite alot of road work / construction in that area and so getting downtown wasnt as easy as I had hoped.

But there doesnt seem to be much for accomodation downtown so I would probably stay here again.

I like the Hilton Brand. Good to know there are still Standards in the Hotel/Motel market. A bit high price-wise but it's clean and comfy. If breakfast ends at 11 am, please don't stop replenishing the buffet at 10:30 onwards. Some of run a little late on Sundays. I'd recommend this hotel for sure.
