Hilton Garden Inn Huntsville/Space Center

Reviewed March 18, 2014

OK, I called late in the day direct to the hotel--they told me there were only two rooms left and that none of the discount programs I use (AAA/AARP, government) would apply. So I think I began at a disadvantage, paying more than I had planned. Room fine--set up for handicapped folks--king bed comfortable, pillows merely OK (small sqaure ones--must be new Hilton idea), air conditioning fabulous. Pool and hot tub closed because of weather--too early in year. Breakfast abundant but confusing--mix of self- and table-service, though server never stopped by us to ask if we needed anything--cook behind serving bar did not offer me any help--but admittedly place was crowded with some kind of meeting and the service staff seemed frazzled. Not worth paying rack rate--would not stay there again simply because it was expensive for what we got.

Room Tip: Front side gets afternoon sun, but a/c conquers all.

Great location to the Huntsville Botanical Gardens, the Space and Rocket Center, Redstone Arsenal, and the Huntsville Location. It is a quiet location, easily accessible from the Interstate. There is a bar/restaurant inside, which is good because there is not many other eating options near by but one chain seafood place.

The hotel staff is great and the amenities are, too. There is a great gym and good breakfast menu. The service and cleanliness were extremely good. They offer government rates and it's conveniently located to all the local attractions.

This Hilton was magnificent. The décor was excellent and the staff was very helpful. Had dinner and breakfast, both were top quality. I would stay again and again. Top notch service and excellent throughout

Typical Garden Inn. Good room, nice front desk staff. But there is at least one waitperson who really wants to make people's stay memorably bad. Bored, uninterested, and unapproachable. Served an egg that was literally black (from the stove). Did she care...nope. A second waitperson saved the day. But my experience was shaped by the first miserable waitperson.

The rooms here are quite large and well appointed. Our room with double queen beds has easily three feet between the beds and about three feet between each bed and the wall. The bathroom is quite large as well. Individual K Cup brewers in the rooms are a nice touch. One does not need to worry about the cleanliness on the in room coffee makers with the brewers available. I was sorry I did not know in advance of this feature; I would have packed my favorite instead of relying on the one provided by the hotel. There is a breakfast service, but it is not complimentary. A cook prepares fresh for you. At $10.95 it is still probably a good deal, there is not another breakfast location really nearby. There is evening restaurant service available as well, but I have not tried that to comment. The staff have all been quite helpful and pleasant. We plan to return to this hotel when we are in Huntsville again next spring.

The price and location were good for this business trip. The hotel was midway between the area of town where business dinner was, and the airport. Property was clean and room was quiet. The recognized Hilton status. I give bonus rating because the bar re-opened for us when we got back from a business meeting. Very friendly place and our business group agreed we'd stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for room away from elevator - I noticed a little noise with it. it didn't detract from the s...
