My daughter and her best friend wanted to visit Orlando so we went down for a few days. I picked the Hilton Garden because I really enjoy staying at this hotel chain.
This hotel did not disappoint. It was easy to find and quite accessible to both resorts. It was a 10 minute trip from our room to the front gate of Disney and about the same distance to Sea World. Stores and a huge mall were very close by.
The room was comfortable and well appointed. The kitchen was a welcome feature that allowed me to save some cash on drinks, especially when you're talking about young ladies who like to have all sorts of energy drinks and juices.
Room service cuts off at noon! Don't be late! Don't forget the hang tag on your door because they won't clean your room! Not a complaint. Just a statement.
I am a cyclist and took my bicycle down for the week. There is no trail nearby and I wouldn't recommend riding on the roads near Disney. However, once you pass the tourist attractions, you can hop on a sidewalk that will run approximately 7 miles out toward the western part of town. From there, you can cut north about 5 miles to the West Orange Trail. What a nice trail! I rode up and down on that trail for days. Safe. Easy ride. Well marked.
I saved my review about the Hilton Garden staff for last. The staff was unbelievable. They were so supportive. If I asked a question, they found an answer. Literally. Many people don't know about cycling and the hotel staff was no exception. However, they went above and beyond what is norm to find answers for me. Phone calls were made. Internet sources were checked and they found answers for me.
I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The question isn't whether I will stay at this hotel again but "when" will I have a chance to stay here again.
