First of all, I'm connected to their high speed wireless Internet using my iPhone in the hotel lobby. So, you are getting a first hand review almost real time review ;)
I checked in last night at around 6pm. Check in was extremely quick and the girl working the front desk was very welcoming. This particular Hilton garden inn is updated in the sense that where the Great American Grill is in the usual HGIs there's a new restaurant called "Coast." I just had breakfast which is an all you can eat buffet for $11.95/person. Typical breakfast fare - eggs bacon sausage etc. Coffee is self serve in the lobby. Small pool area, but functional. Lobby has a bar in it which opens up in the evenings.
The rooms are very nice! The beds are a little firm for my liking, but they're comfortable to sleep in. Nice flat panel screens in the room ( if I could figure out how to swipe one out of here, I would..LOL!). Again, wireless available in the rooms (and hard wired connection is available too). Soda and ice vending machines on the 2nd and 7th floors.
The best way to get here is to get on I-275 and find the westshore blvd exit. I wound up getting onto Kennedy blvd, but still connected to westshore (not sure how I managed that, but whatever.. I'm here and that's all that matters). Take westshore to spruce street. Turn left on spruce and head down about 2 miles. The hotel is right across from the airport entrance on your left inside Avaian Park which looks like it's going to be an up and coming commerce center ((still under development).
I'm impressed with this location! I quote the ad, "BIG day tomorrow? Stay (at this) HGI tonight!" ;)
Enjoy your stay!!!
