“Business Meeting”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Held a 3-day business meeting here and the sales and banquet staff were understanding of last minute changes and accomodated us in the most helpful and friendly way.

I was even offered options to save money which is unheard of when planning meetings...and I plan a lot of meetings across the country...so that was a nice surprise that I apprecited greatly.

I was in town for a friends wedding. The accommodations were great and the staff was very personable and helpful. I enjoyed my stay and would highly recommend the hotel for anyone wanting a comfortable get-away. The hotel is conveniently located to shopping, restaurants and the highway.

Arrived a little after 9:00 PM very tired from long trip. Guest service book in room says rom service until 10. Call guest services and was told room service ends at 9. Very disappointed. I stay in HGI regularly and have ran into unwillingness to provide service. I will not return to this HGI

Room Tip: Do not stay on rooms on interstate side, very noisy

I have stayed at this hotel several times. Like most Hilton Garden Inn's the hotel is very nice. The manager at this hotel encourages his staff by being a team player and being very friendly to his staff as well as to the customers. This is my place to stay when coming to this area.

Enjoyed our stay. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice and the bed was very comfortable. Loved the location with the Columbiana Mall being approximately a mile away. There were also several restaurants close by to choose from. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Hotel accommodations were good. If you are using the meeting room for a large group of people 40+, do not use their restaurant. They will tell you they could sit 65, yes... if you have them sitting in couches, bar and in the business center. The lunch portion / networking event was ruined because of the lack of space.

Dear Ileana P,

I want to sincerely apologize for the issues you experienced during the lunch for your event. Our restaurant does accommodate 48 people with no additional tables added which is what our Food & Beverage team planned for based on your guarantee of 45. Yes, we can also add tables in the restaurant and lobby bringing seating up to 65+ plus which we accommodate on a regular basis with no issues. This was not done in advance based your guarantee number of attendees. Unfortunately, there was some confusion with other guests not with your group in our dining room at the time of your lunch that our team mistook for members of your group. As a result, you are correct, there was not enough seating to accommodate your group. I understand how this resulted in a negative impact on your networking event and can assure you will not reoccur in the future. I have made compensation to your bill today for the inconvenience this caused for you and your attendees. We would very much like to have your business again in an effort to regain your faith in us. Our team always strives to exceed all of our customers’ expectations. Feedback such as yours is what allows us to constantly improve on the experiences we deliver. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you as this is not how we deliver our experiences. Thank you for taking the time to share your comments with us.

Hilton Garden Inn was in the a great location, very close to I-26 & I-20, the Mall, and a variety of restaurants. The hotel staff was friendly...check in and check out was simple. The hotel was clean and safe. My room was quiet and very comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was very tasty! Only there for a night but would stay again for business or pleasure.
