I travelled to Phoenix to visit my 82 year old mother. Wanted a hotel along Central Ave corridor that was reasonably priced. Wasn't looking for luxury or a resort. Just clean, safe, comfortable and quiet. This Hilton Garden Inn was ideal. Luis at the front desk checked me in quickly and professionally. He seemed happy I was there. He explained when and where breakfast would be in the morning, where to park (more on that later), and a general overview of the hotel and the surrounding area.
It's a little walk to the rooms. Some are closer (cabanna rooms?) than others. My room was in a six or seven story building just past the cabana rooms that was accessed by going outside through the pool area and then indoors again to the elevator. Never seemed to have to wait for an elevator during my three night stay.
My room on the fifth floor was a king suite on the back of the building, so there was no pool noise. Or ANY noise. I was able to nap in the afternoon and sleep at night without any disturbance. The immediate view out of the two windows was of a side street and some sort of electrical substation. Not too exciting, but in the distance was a view of Phoenix and the mountains that I liked.
Room had a refrigerator, two tv's, and a very comfortable bed. Two closets.
The only negative was the parking. The lot is across an adjacent side street and is shared with an office building. From the main entrance to the parking lot is maybe 150 or 200 feet. Add in the distance to the rooms and it is a little bit of a trek each time you leave and return. Should not be a problem for most people, but I mention it for readers who may have mobility issues. Of course, there is a loading/unloading area for check in/check out. And the hotel may have other options for those requiring assistance.
I didn't eat in the restaurant so I can't evaluate the food. Nor did I use the gym, which I believe to be in the adjacent office building. Hotel guests are granted privileges there.
I definitely will stay here again. This hotel is not a Westin, Kimpton, or a resort and my "very good" rating takes that into account. I'm using a different rating scale. It also costs considerably less than those others. If you're after a clean, safe, comfortable, and well-priced hotel in central Phoenix, this hotel is the place.
