Reviewed 23 May 2016

The website needs to be updated to reflect they turned their indoor pool into a conference room. Other than that, my stay was exactly what I expected from the Hilton. Great staff and clean throughout!

The Hilton Garden Inn is located very close to the center of downtown Athens. If you are visiting Athens and plan to enjoy the shops, restaurant and bars in the downtown area, this is the best place to stay. There are not a lot of amenities here, but what they have is well done. The bar area is small and...

Stayed here for a wedding - same weekend as graduation ceremonies, which probably added to the check-in issues. 3pm check-in was guaranteed. Oddly, they only had "doubles/queens" available - and these were available earlier than 3pm. The guests that reserved a room with a "king" beds had to wait as these were not ready (despite being told the day prior...

Hotel is fine and restaurant accommodations were very nice. Internet leaves a lot to be desired, but fortunately we were needing to conduct business on this trip. Staff could not be more professional or ready to help in any way possible.

This hotel is centrally located in the commercial area with good restaurants nearby. The parking is excellent and at no cost to guests. It is clean and the staff extraordinarily friendly. For parents visiting students at the university, the hotel is perfectly situated and one can walk to just about anywhere including the stadium.

This was a company retreat for 20 guests. This is a great location; walking distance to many fine restaurants and bars. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. Breakfast had a good variety and omelets to order which was very popular with our group. I recommend this hotel.

We had a great time at this location. The hotel was clean and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The location is close to downtown bars/restaurants and an easy walk to UGA. We would definitely return to this hotel. If you wake up too late to eat breakfast at the hotel, go to Momma's Boy Restaurant.

We were here for a dance competition. It was a great place to stay! Perfect location. It was across from our venue so we were able to get ready in the room and walk right across the street. The first room they assigned had a faulty AC unit and in 5 minutes they had a new room for me!

I was very satisfied with my stay at the hotel. Apparently, the beds are adjustable, but I didn't know it on my first night, but it was fine without adjustment. For others that stay here and want a softer or harder mattress, you can ask about how to adjust.
