Setting - The downtown Hilton Gardens in Athens, GA is a very nice hotel. It is located literally across the street from Athen's marvelous Convention Center. The hotel is right in the middle of every sort of dining area you can imagine. I never had to move my car from the parking deck while staying there four nights. There are... More

This is a great location if you want to be able to walk around downtown, attend an event at the conference center, or go on campus. The hotel is very clean and the staff were very nice and helpful. I would recommend staying here in downtown Athens.

Lovely hotel; convenient to the city's attractions; excellent staff. Everyone was welcoming and attentive from the minute we walked in the door. Check-in was easy and so was check-out. The room was comfortable and well-appointed. Excellent breakfasts with omelets made to order. Overall, a great experience.

I came over to Athens to visit my girlfriend and experience the charm and vibrancy of UGA. I wasn't disappointed at all, as we were a short walk from numerous establishments, but had no issues with noise, crowds, or anything like that. Parking was a breeze, and the hotel staff was among the best I've seen for a similar establishment.... More

Staff is awesome, very friendly. Someone from maintenance offered to help with my luggage. Somp remembers names/drinks and has your drink on counter as you walk up. He's very personable. New increased parking fee of $30 per night STINKS! It's always been $9.95 and room rates are increased for game weekends already so there is no need to increase parking... More

My daughter and I reserved a room at the Hilton Garden Inn in Athens. The hotel is in good condition. The lobby was clean, hotel staff was courteous. Some evenings they seemed a little overwhelmed, possibly understaffed. The elevator was noisy and a little scary, in addition to this only one elevator worked so you only had one option. Not...

I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn for a conference. The staff was exceptional, the room was clean, and the prices in the bar/restaurant were quite reasonable. I appreciated the disposable cups with lids so I could take my coffee with me. The fresh baked cookies in the afternoon were a great treat, too. I would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I attended a teachers' conference. The convenience to the Classic Center was great. The hotel was clean and comfortable, and the staff was very nice. I enjoyed the fitness center. The neighborhood is great for walking, dining, and shopping.
