Good hotel but very expensive and a bit out of the way…everything is “a la card”. Shuttle service is not offered from and to the airport leaving you with the option of getting a cab for $40 each way. Speaking about shuttle, it will take you only 3 miles away from the hotel…The shuttle drops you off in the area with plenty of bars but not much else. During our recent visit, we took a chance and took a bus ride (free of charge???) to German Village…from there, we still had to walk about 10 blocks to one of the best restaurants in the city. Strangely enough, a shuttle from another hotel brought the guests and dropped them off right in front of the door of the restaurant. The driver of that shuttle gave us the phone number for the Cab to take us back (for another $20+) to Hilton Garden Inn.
