It seems that Hilton Garden Inns have the least variances of the major hotel brands (perhaps Hampton Inns is close, though they have been more varied as to room quality than HGI). I've been to a dozen or so, and they all seem about the same with the exception of (a) whether they have just the in-house restaurant that also serves breakfast off the lobby (most) or a connected restaurant as well (some, including two in my area that have sports bars) and (b) whether they have pools/spas (most do). Staff is usually (with one memorable exception, *not* here) quite good. Rooms are clean, with microwave and fridge, beds are comfy, wifi is solid, sundries are available. Breakfast is not free; a buffet is available, usually with omelettes and some other items from the grill, fruits and pastries.
This HGI was right in the brand norm -- unremarkable, very clean, professional staff. Unremarkable, but recommended. (P.S. Slight point off for an apparent new policy to have two grades of wifi speed, one free and one paid -- though oddly enough my Ipad is AT&T, which is HGI's carrier, and on my Ipad I seemed to get the full speed when I connected to the free version.)
