“Short but Sweet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

We stayed here for a convention, though only for one night. This hotel is conveniently near almost everything you could want, yet is quiet and elegant. The staff was extremely accommodating and courteous. The rooms were spacious and clean. Breakfast buffet was really nice. Too bad we didn't get to stay longer! Would definitely would come back again if in the area.

The hotel's location is superb if one is doing business in the northern suburbs of Philadelphia. The staff is gracious -- beyond friendly and aim to please. They are a delightful bunch. My room was clean although one of the bed comforters had some suspicious dark stains in it. The bathroom was clean although chips and marks on the tub made me think that the place was showing its age. I didn't have breakfast ($9.95) but it sure looked good. The bar area in the evening had many business people socializing and enjoying informal conversations. The bar clientele was 50ish. They were there to unwind and converse with people that they already know. It is not a typical bar scene for the 20-30ish crowd.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. While the rooms are clean, they are starting to show their age, which is why we are renovating the entire hotel near the end of the year. I know most of the hotel still looks new but our owners are committed to being the best. We now have shuttle service as well. I hope we can meet on your next trip to Philly.

Make it a great day,
Bret

Hotel stay was great. We come every year and get excellent service. Breakfast is the best. Friendly staff. If you have a sports group this is the hotel to stay in. Rates are reasonable. Looking forward to staying in this hotel again next year.

One of the best things about this hotel is location. It is 1000 Ft. from a regional rail terminal that gets you into Philly in 20 min. Trains run every hour. The Inn is right off the Pa. Turnpike with easy access, yet remarkably quiet. Everything about the hotel was first class, we enjoyed our stay.

I love to stay close to my daughter and her family when I visit Philadelphia. Four grandchildren make a hotel stay necessary. The Hilton Garden Inn is my first choice. Very friendly and professional staff. Breakfast is especially good.

I stayed at this hotel on a short business trip to Ft. Washington. From the moment you walk through the lobby doors, you experience a clean, beautiful hotel inclusive of a fire place, a quaint restaurant, and a helpful and friendly staff. The check in process was the easiest I've ever experienced. The room was clean and the furnishings are updated. The breakfast buffet includes made to order options and the staff ensures that you have coffee, water, etc. They are professional, attentive, and friendly.

We stayed there over St. Patty's Day weekend, not wanting to share the road with the party crowd. This is a new and delightful little hotel with an incredibly friendly staff. The room was spacious and clean and the bed was perfect. It was priced right and we felt we got more than we paid for. One surprise was the small bar in the lobby. There's a wide variety of inexpensive wines and a pretty good selection of liquors. The young lady serving at the bar was friendly and helpful. Unlike other chain 'Inns" the breakfast buffet comes at a moderate price ($10/each). Minor gripe: One recommendation I'd make for this hotel is to make the omelets in a pan instead of using the flat top. That way, everything can be incorporated with the eggs. The omelets we had consisted of a variety of ingredients (warmed separately in a pan) encased in a thin layer of eggs (think crepes). I know this is a nit and if this was an included breakfast, I wouldn't have mentioned it. The price elevated our expectations. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and will stay here again.

Thank you for staying with us and for your review of the hotel. That was a great point about the omelets. We are upgrading out kitchen equipment this year, I will follow up with our culinary team to see what they may need to ensure we make our omelets the traditional way. Thank you for your business and I hope that you will think of us, should you travel this way again in the future.

Make it a great day,
Bret
