Booked via HH for 116$ AAA rate. Check in was pleasant and friendly, and was highlighted the offerings in the hotel as well as HH perks. Professional.

Room was of good size, modern, great king bed with firmness settings on each side, LCD TV with plenty of channels, free wifi, nice bathroom with walk in shower, small fridge and microwave.

The pool is a bit small sized, gym is well appointed, plenty of parking. If I recall, breakfast was 10$ AYCE buffet but did not partake. Plenty of food choice in walking distance. Overall, a good hotel for Watertown.

this hotel is very clean and located in a nice area . the prices are a little steep especially for this area. The prices are steep for this area . The beds are comfortable but the pillows are something to be desired. the food is very good and the bar staff are all very nice. We were there for a wedding and when they set a time limit to be out they are not kidding it was a few minutes before 10 o'clock and the staff started to tear down the reception and basically pushing everyone out and they were throwing away the wedding favors and whatever else was left on the tables without consulting with the bride and groom to see if they wanted anything saved . Overall I would probably not stay at this hotel again but I would go there to eat dinner as their food is very good .

A good choice for business or family travel. Pool, hot tub, and fitness room are available. Restaurant on site. (Note: No free breakfast, except for high level Hilton Honors members. If that is important, try the Hampton Inn nearby.) Comfortable rooms with a microwave & refrigerator in each room. Ask for a room with an odd number (away from the highway). This is a new hotel, but the rooms on the highway side can be noisy. (Route 81 has traffic all night long.)

Our family stayed here over a long weekend, primarily to visit the Thousand islands and to visit a new area.

We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn as it had a good weekend rate and was only around 15-20 mins from Alex Bay on the river. The boat tour was really great and because it was Father's Day, I went for free!! BTW, it is worth getting off at Bolt castle and touring it.

The hotel is quite large for a HGI. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was good and filled us up!! Only one day (Father's Day) was the breakfast area completely crazy, but we still found a table.

Plus sides were nice rooms, good internet, great staff, good location, loads of restaurants nearby and a mall 1 minute away.

Only real downside was that the swimming pool was tiny, both for a hotel this size and for a Hilton Garden Inn.

Overall good, but we may stay elsewhere in Watertown that has a nicer pool and recreation area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not face the highway!

Stopped in Watertown to break up a long trip from the New York City suburbs to Canada. Prefer Hilton properties so decided to take this HGI under consideration. not disappointed! Great check-in, clean, comfortable rooms, lots of food options close by. Breakfast in-house was very well done. If you're traveling to the 1000 Islands region, have business at nearby Fort Drum, or like me want to break up a long car trip, stay here. PS: Fitness center well-done, too.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the east or parking lot side. the rooms facing west face I-81 and it's nor...

This hotel and staff are excellent. Having a Hilton Garden Inn in Watertown is a coo! I would recommend to anyone. These are the best accomodations you will find in Watertown. The fact that there is a restaurant in house and room service makes the stay that much more enjoyable.

Hubby and I stayed here for a romantic weekend. It was one of the nicest hotels we've been to. Staff was fantastic. Rooms clean. Beds so comfy. Perfect location. I never wanted to leave. Would stay again as a couple or with child.
