At review time, this Hilton Garden Inn is undergoing some renovations. All in all, it's still a good value if you don't mind the the construction woes. The dining area has been temporarily transformed to a make shift front desk/dining/common area. The main entrance is the main area of construction, so having to utilize a side entrance and exit can be a bit cumbersome and create a long trek to your room.
That being said, the rooms have been tidy and clean and the staffing friendly, professional and welcoming. The construction crews outside, although I don't expect them to be friendly, is quite disheartening that so many Americans are out of work, and so many (apparently) illegals are working steady on the site project.
Hilton Garden Inn offers a daily breakfast (for a $10 up-charge) that is adequate if you are on the go, but better breakfast values can be had at some of the local restaurants. The breakfast lady is sweet as can be, but some day's, I would rather not be talked to about my daily business.
There is a clean pool as well as a nice workout room with treadmills, weights and water. The location is convenient for restaurants and various shopping. It's just off of the I-4 exits. Hilton Garden Inn is a nice stay, but the Homewood Suites next door may be a better choice for an extended stay so do some price comparisons as the rack rates appear close in cost. The Homewood rooms are larger and have full size kitchenettes and a separated bedroom and two televisions per room.
Had Hilton hired strictly full time American citizens for their construction projects, I would have more respect for the chain, and probably added another star to this review of the Garden Inn. I guess cheap labor is an irresistible proposition to the company bottom line over loyalty to the (legal) citizens of America that are out of work and looking for jobs.
