Hilton Garden Inn Chesterton
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Chesterton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 1, 2007

Absolutely the best service we've ever experienced. Maria, the night clerk on Fri evening, 4/27, even went so far as to print out directions AND the menu from a restaurant we asked about. Don't know the names of the room service gals, they were extremely sweet and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and lacked nothing-love the in-room safes! The restaurant server was also great. Overall one of the best hotel experiences we've ever had, and will definitely stay there the next time we're in Chesterton.

The night of our stay there was an ice storm and we lost power during the night, so it was not exactly restful. This was out of the control of the Hotel, so we won't try to blame them.

The room was spacious and clean, and they had nice complimentary toiletries and a coffee/fridge station. The room was called a suite, but there was no door separating the living area from the bedroom area. The furnishings were sparse, the bedroom area could use a chair or additional desk/dresser.

The "kid friendly" hotel removed the jacks from the t.v.'s, so we could not hook up our playstation, or watch our own dvds, which forces families to purchase their game system or movies, for over $10.00. For a kid-friendly suite, for $149 a night, the Disney channel should not be an extra purchase.....

The pool was fine, pretty typical for a basic hotel/pool, but they ran out of towels. My husband called twice to the front desk. After 25 minutes we gave up and dripped back to our room. As we were leaving the pool area, the attended arrived carrying 2 towels. There were at least 30 people using the pool area. 2 towels were not going to go very far....

The hotel had a restaurant in-house that had a breakfast buffet, but we did not eat there so I can't review it, but the convience is nice if you want to take advantage. They also had a 24-hour shop with necessities and snacks, very nice touch.

There is a Bob Evans next store and lots of nearby shopping/restaurants in Chesterton, within 2-3 miles. Chesterton had many cute antique shops and it is very close to the Indiana Dunes. I would stay here again, but I wish they would not pinch the pennies when it comes to families....

The location is good and because it was clean and appeared to be well managed, I would stay here again.

The Hilton was extremely accommodating. We checked out of a bad hotel early and the Hilton took care of us. They found a room and had it ready for us in no time. They were great. Number 1 with customer service!!

My son recently got married near this hotel so we chose to have our family stay there. They went above and beyond what any other hotel would have done. I can't say enough about the staff. Every guest at the wedding was completely satisfied. We booked 40 rooms and since it was graduation for the local university the hotel was completely filled. The rooms are simply beautiful, each one with a frig and microwave. Indoor pool and exercise room were excellent. Can't say enough good about this hotel and its staff. They made our stay there so enjoyable.

Ok for starters don't even attempt to eat in the hotel at all.. unless you have an extra 5 hours to spare... we ordered appetizers and drinks only and it took almost 45 minutes for that and then another 35 for the bill...we ordered a movie and then paused it (which is supposed to be an option) and when we went back to it 30 minutes later we fell into another mess of problems,we spent even more time on the phone with lodgenet (the tv company) and the hotel staff on 3 way for another 25 minutes all to have to re-order the movie..then try to take a dip in the nice pool only to realize there are no towels then their maintenance guy comes into save the day with hand towels??? the next morning after hell we went down for breakfast... another BIG mistake.... there were no tables... and then when we did get one the bus boy barely wiped it off for us, there was still salt and sugar on our placemates... he then dropped our napkins on the floor as he was setting the table and right there in front of us he picked them up off the floor and put them on our table... like we would've wiped our mouths with it after that.... no way would we ever stay there again....
