“Very nice!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2003

This is a very nice place to stay in you are in the area. The rooms were nicely furnished and the inn itself was sparkly new and clean!! It is a convenient location - next to a wonderful deli (Harold's) that serves outstanding sandwiches as well as meals!! The breakfast buffet was standard - the muffins and pastries were your typical cold uniform variety but there were some nice hot dishes to chose from. I would not hesitate staying here again! It is much nicer than the other small hotels in the area!

This has truly been the year of the hotel for me as I've stayed at every possible range of lodging from the Ritz to the local HoJo's. I know what money can buy you, and for an average of $69 a night this hotel is a bargain. So let's begin with the review.

Location:

The Hilton Garden Inn in Edison will never be seen in an Ansel Adams print. It is conveniently located right off Rt 287 and the NJ Turnpike in what would best be described as an industrial district. Don't think of noisy steel mills and smog though. It is mostly sparse warehouses that make for a surprisingly quiet neighborhood minus the view.

The Hotel:

The hotel appears fairly new with well kept grounds. The parking is ample, convenient, and free. Yes, free. The lobby is also well kept with a lounge area on the left and a dining area on the right.
Continental breakfast is complimentary every morning and offers a fairly expansive selection of pastries, fruits, juices, etc. For $2 extra you can opt for various hot items cooked to order (omlettes, pancakes, etc.).

There is also a computer room on the first floor which can best be described as a small office. This room, available 24hrs a day to guests, contains a computer with internet access, a printer/fax, and a copy machine. All free.

The fitness area is also located on the first floor. This area is open from 6:00am-11:00pm. It contains a very limited excercise room, which contains a treadmill, elliptical, some free weights, and a universal.
The pool area is adjacent and has a medium sized indoor pool and a jacuzzi. Nothing special, but clean and convenient.

There are also meeting rooms, but I cannot personally review them.

The Rooms:

The rooms are very well kept and of decent size. Each room contains the standard array of furnishings, bed, recliner, desk, tv, etc. Each desk is equipped with an ethernet cable for complimentary internet access.
The bathrooms are also decently sized and up to date with some marble finishings. Toiletries are the standard Hilton/Neutrogena ware. All of the rooms also include a microwave oven, refrigerator, and coffee maker (with complimentary coffee). The rooms are quiet and the climate control system works well.

The Service:

The hotel staff are all courteous and cheerful. The front desk is available 24hrs a day and can assist you with basic concierge needs if required. Maid service is daily and acceptable. However, there is no turndown service and for the sake of privacy lock your door completely as the maids will go into your room regardless of privacy signs. (This most likely was an isolated incident as it happened on only one stay).

Overall:

Clean, comfortable, and friendly. Better value with more ammeneties than far greater priced hotels in the area.
