I recently stayed at this hotel with my husband while visiting the area. The hotel is located in a very nice, upscale and safe shopping area. This modern hotel is fairly new and everything reflects that. Everything was very clean. The front staff was very friendly and welcoming to us upon arrival. The hotel offers free parking in the parking garage right across the street which is great and rare for most hotels in this area. There is a loading area at the front of the hotel for you to park at, check in and unload your bags. Once you do all that, you can take your car over to the parking garage and not have to tote your bags around. There are all different kinds of restaurants to choose from at this location. There is a Harris Teeter grocery store, Carribou coffee shop, Bank of America, Movie Theater and numerous other shops. The location can not be beat. There is also a major indoor bus station located here that has buses to take you to wherever you need to go, including the subway. The hotel does not include breakfast but I got such a great winter rate I didnt mind that at all! I enjoyed my stay at this hotel and will be back! I definately recommend this Hilton Garden Inn!
