This HGI property is located just off a branch of I-405 and is nestled in the rear of a retail center (offering a variety of restaurants within easy walking distance of the hotel). Rooms along the "front' of the hotel face the freeway, while rooms in the "back" face a wooded area. I didn't notice any freeway noise (even with the HVAC turned off) but I would opt for a room along the back side of the hotel. There is plenty of free parking in front of and to the sides of the hotel. This four-floor HGI is faced with a brick exterior and the interior/lobby area seems to have a newer, more upscale finish than older HGI locations.
I was greeted warmly by the front desk person and my check-in took less than a minute. The main floor offers all the typical (and appreciated) HGI ameneties including a restaurant, business center, fitness room, guest laundry, and access to a pool. In-room internet access is free.
I immediately noticed how clean and bright the common areas are: this hotel has installed compact florescent lights throughout the hotel (also in the guest rooms). The bright light coupled with the "wing" design of the building made the hallways seem larger, and in the guest rooms the brightness is in sharp contrast to the low-wattage bulbs many hotels still use.
My room was standard HGI - coffee maker, microwave, and mini-fridge. The HVAC system worked well and maintained good air flow while maintaining a comfortable temp. The bathroom, was nicely finished, offered all the usual ameneties, and the shower head produced a good, strong flow.
I've stayed at many of the HGI properties in the Puget Sound area, and I would rate this HGI at the top of the pack. The staff are friendly and helpful. The facility is clean, well-equipped, and offered me a good night's sleep at a reasonable rate. I recommend this Hilton Garden Inn whether you have business in the Everett-Bellevue corridor, or whether you're looking for a place to spend the night while traveling through the area.
