HILTON GARDEN INN
The following is a very detailed review of my stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel in St. George, Utah. Prices listed are subject to change and are current as of December, 2012.
I was traveling with a group and had three rooms assigned to us: 106, 120 and 122. Check in time was 3 p.m. and we requested a 1 p.m. early check in (not guaranteed). One of the rooms was ready at 1 p.m. However at 4 p.m., the other two rooms were not ready. There was only one maid cleaning the rooms on the First Floor.
The beds are queen sized rather than double, and beds have a pressure knob on each side of the bed near the head to control the degree of firmness or softness. A rollaway bed can be added to the room for $10.00, and cribs appear to be free.
The room is a very nice size and includes a small refrigerator (empty, no items inside for sale), a small microwave, and small coffee maker. There is also an iron, ironing board and luggage stand. There is no safe in the room. The clock radio allows for an MP3 player to be connected to it.
On the first floor only, there is a coin operated laundry (one washing machine and one washer) that costs 75 cents each load (30 minutes for the washing machine and 45 minutes for the dryer). There is also a folding area. Laundry soap can be purchased form the Pavilion Pantry.
There is a soda and water vending machine ($1.50 per beverage) along with an ice machine on each floor.
Internet is very easy to access and comes with options for wired or wireless. To access complimentary wireless, simply enter your last name and room number. There is an option for Remote Printing. Select the Business Center Printer from your computer and then pick up the job by entering a personalized, protected password on the keypad at the Business Center.
DINING: There is a small onsite restaurant called Great American Grill. Guests may purchase the bountiful buffet for $9.95. The hotel offers the Pavilion Pantry in which sundries, fresh sandwiches, salads, snacks, and beverages. There is also In Room Dining available, or guests may walk across the street to Cracker Barrel or The Players Sports Pub. There is also an option in which Mobile Waiter can deliver to your hotel room. We stayed at the hotel as part of a group, so a group breakfast was arranged for us. This included bacon, scrambled eggs, fresh fruit (watermelon and pineapples), mini blueberry muffins, and French toast. Orange juice and coffee were also available. This was considered a Deluxe Continental Breakfast as part of the group package and was served in The Banquet Room from 6:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.
A full service lounge called The Office is also located on the Main Floor open at 5 p.m. and serving dinner daily from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. (must be 21 to enter). The front desk will give you a $2.00 off card for appetizers.
The Hilton offers ZipOut Check Out – after you receive your itemized summary (slipped to you under your door), you can express check out by using your room telephone (select “Zip Out Check Out” button).
The hotel uses toiletries from Bath and Body Works called Rainkissed Leaves, and soap is Neutrogena brand. There is no exhaust fan in the bathroom, nor any vent for heating or cooling in the bathroom – you will need to leave the bathroom door open in order to get heating or cooling in this area. Water pressure and temperature was excellent even in the morning.
It appears to us that the furniture was in good shape as well as the room décor, television, and in room equipment like refrigerator. At no time did we hear noise from neighbors to the left or right, and voices from the hallway were at a minimal.
Fresh, hot cookies are available at the check in desk in the late afternoon. There is also a very nice, large lobby area for reading or waiting for friends.
We travel a lot and I would say the Fitness Room is one of the better ones we have experienced. There are several treadmills and elliptical machines, a stretch trainer, and a free weight area, along with weights on a machine. Towels are available in the room along with headsets to use on the treadmills and elliptical machines when watching TV. The only water available is through a drinking fountain. The pool area is in front of hotel and accessible through the lobby and the Fitness Room.
The Business Center is also complete and includes two machines, two printers, one photocopier, one shredder and a bin for shred documents.
Hotel is conveniently located next door to the Dixie Convention Center and you can walk next door. Very close for those attending conferences and conventions/assemblies.
We definitely enjoyed our stay here. We have stayed at many hotels in St. George, and particularly the Fitness Center and proximity to the Dixie Convention Center. Staff was friendly and helpful. We would return again.
