“Nice hotel, hard beds, no free breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

Stayed here for the VT open house. Less than 3miles from campus. Clean room, friendly staff, pool and hot tub clean with pool towels avail, large work out room-nice with a few ellipticals-2 treadmills-weight machine as well as free weights, towels and water. Nice patio outside the pool area. Bar area small but great place to get out of the room at night for a drink without leaving the hotel. No breakfast included(was $8.95 for bfast) but you can get coffee,tea and cocoa to go. Beds had sleep number but when we dialed down to 1 from 8, we did not notice any difference. Hotel close to main road but noise was not an issue. Large well lit parking area. Would stay again.

We came to the hotel for the Open House at Virginia Tech. The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly. Breakfast was really good. The only issue we had was the mattress on the bed was extremely uncomfortable. If you stay here and you find the bed to be hard, let the front desk know. They said they could fix the problem.

I stayed at the Hilton Garden for one night and I must say, it was a great experience. The facilities were very clean, the staff was very cordial and professional, especially Ms. Kim, who was very polite and accommodating during the checking in process. The rooms were immaculately clean and were equipped with a Fridge and a microwave, amenities you don't find that often at other hotels unless you pay for them. Room service was great! The bathroom was also very clean. Overall, I enjoyed my experience and would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Blacksburg area. The staff definitely goes above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible!

Lovely hotel in the heart of Blacksburg. Their staff is immensely helpful. This is one of the coolest, nicest, and cleanest hotels I have ever stayed at. Their staff is so pleasant, and it makes a long trip that much better! Great hotel, two thumbs way up!

Room Tip: Floor 2 was great.

This hotel is nicely designed and closer to the Virginia Tech campus than hotels in Christiansburg, but it is overpriced. The building itself is constructed of stone bearing a striking resemblance to Hokie Stone. Nice touch.

The guest rooms
This review is based on a stay in room 408. The carpeting in the hallway is in very good condition and has a nice design. The entry door to the guest room is VERY heavy or the hinges are adjusted too tightly. My 110 lb wife could barely open it and the doors slam loudly when closing. The guest rooms use VT colors and have framed photos of campus scenes on the wall. The wooden furniture in the room is very nice. The condition of the carpeting, walls and furniture are excellent. The room design is typical of most hotels and nothing much innovative or surprising. There is one desk and chair, a comfy chair and hassock, 2 queen beds, dresser with surprisingly small flat panel TV (approx 27”) and a mini-fridge, microwave and coffee maker in the corner. The mattress was much too firm for our liking. The bathroom has a full shower, granite sink and a toilet. This hotel wins the award for the thickest and cleanest smelling towels. The A/C unit is quiet. The room was a bit cool and the thermostat would not rise above 74, but felt cooler. Lighting is good. The main thing that set this room apart from other hotels was the Keurig coffee maker. Very nice.

The view from the window in the rear of the hotel looks out at 5 - five story apartment buildings and their expansive parking lot. There is a very good fitness center with lots of weights and machines. The indoor pool is small which is not unusual in new hotels. The lobby is large and nicely designed. Breakfast is served in an open area in one half of the lobby. The area was very chilly since outside temperatures dipped into the 30s during the night. The cold air would enter as guests entered and exited the hotel through the large doors. The cooked to order eggs and other items offered were very good. Breakfast was very crowded and the friendly waitresses had trouble keeping up with clearing dishes. Breakfast was probably worth the $9 plus tip, but I really don’t like paying for breakfast when you can get it for free at many other hotels, especially considering the $160 room rate.

Problems and suggestions to management
The bathroom sink would not hold water. The toilet did not flush properly. It had to be flushed twice and had a mini-geyser effect which made you want to stand far back when flushing. Strange. The shower curtain looked clean, but had a mildew smell and should probably be washed. The desk lamp has slots in to allow heat to escape, but it also allows light to glare out the top. The pillows on the bed seem to be short in length which was annoying. The mattress was much too firm for our liking and the polyester quilt seemed like it was made from Teflon since it kept sliding off the bed at night.

Conclusion
This is a very nice hotel and in good condition. I would stay here again, but only if I was able to get a more reasonable rate. The Hilton Rewards category 6 rating is ridiculously high. The Virginia Tech area does not have enough hotels to meet demand.

Room Tip: Go to breakfast early to minimize crowds.
