We stayed at this Hilton Garden Inn while on our way to Indianapolis. Although we had stayed at Hilton Garden Inns before, this was a wonderful surprise. The lobby cookies (which have been at all the HGI's) were of better quality and displayed in a more sanitary fashion than the others. The decor was above the other HGI's we have stayed at. Even the elevator lobbies had a beautiful piece of furniture, mirror, and floral arrangement above the norm. We laughed when we checked into another HGI later in our trip and the difference between the decor was striking. The hotel was also very clean.
The staff was just great. It's a rare thing to see everyone from the front desk clerk to the bartender to the maids have the same great attention to service and detail. We had a room service dinner and it was very good. The breakfast is fabulous. Many more items than the usual HGI fare. I heard several other guests expressing the same sentiment...that this was one of the best breakfasts that had ever had. The hotel also had a fenced, lighted courtyard off the bar area instead of the standard concrete slab that we encountered at other HGI's. It made for an enjoyable evening and made the street noise and lights seem quite a ways away.
We had such an enjoyable stay, we're trying to find another reason to go through Effingham, IL. This was definitely an unexpected and very pleasant oasis on the Interstate.
