We stayed here during Carnegie Mellon's Spring Carnival. It has been recently renovated since Hilton took over and I have to say it looks great! This is the best Hilton Garden Inn I've ever stayed at! The staff are friendly and hospitable from the Front Desk to the restaurant. It seem like they are working out some kinks in the lobby/front entrance design but they did this late at night so it wasn't a problem at all.
The rooms are completely redone as well. There is a fridge, microwave, tea, and coffee which were all useful. I real liked the contemporary decor. The HGI beds are incredibly comfortable! I think they are similar to tempurpedic but have never slept on an actual tempurpedic so I'm not sure. There is a dial to select how soft/firm the mattress is on each side which was great for two people.
We got the continental breakfast as Gold Hilton HHonors members and it was great! We got to breakfast late one morning (we were functioning on west coast time) and Samantha at the restaurant went out of her way to make sure we were taken care of.
Location is great too! We walked to and from campus every day, and it's a quick stumble from bars/restaurants in Oakland. Since we ended up walking we didn't use the shuttle, but it was certainly available.
