We had booked the Polar Express train (Williams, AZ www.thetrain.com) trip last year and had already decided that we would stay in Flagstaff vs the Grand Canyon railway hotel which is part of the Polar Express package after our last expericene there.

We arrived the Hilton Garden about 2pm and were greeted by the friendly staff. They had "fresh" muffins for guest, but we skipped these. Lobby looked nice and they had a nice small business area right off the lobby. (When we returned later that night, there were young men in the business center playing video games on the computer). They also offer free WiFi in the rooms. There is an indoor pool area right off the lobby, but we did not use this trip.

Our room was 2 double beds and the room had a microwave, Fridge and coffee maker. It was a very comfortable room. The only thing I will say is the matteresses seemed a bit worn and probably was on the verge of needing to be replaced. But it was no worse than Grand Canyon Railway hotel and the room was about 10 times better.

We had a late lunch early dinner at Busters on Milton. We have not been here in about 10 years. But it use to be a partner restruant to Keatons in Tucson. Now just Buddy's in Tucson.
They always serve zuchini bread with the meal and have a lot of Fish on the menu.
We had Steamed Clams.. DD age 6 gave them an A+
French Onion Soup C+
Spinach Salad D
Lavash A-
Hot Wings B+

Back to our room to change into Jammies for the Polar express trip which was at 6:30 in Williams (about 30 miles from the hotel) Once again friendly greeted by the staff. and received a nice call asking if there was anything we needed.

Off to Williams for the Polar Express. Definately an experience and had to laugh at the poor folks eating at Max and Thelma's (the buffet part of the package). Skip it folks if you can. It is terrible.

We were back to our room by 9pm. No noises from the neighbors and everything seemed very quiet.

For Breakfast we had to hit "The Place" on Milton. The interior is nothing to write home about and actually I felt it was a bit more "dumpy" than the one on Route 66 on the East end of town. Over all this experiece for Breakfast was not as good as our last trip here. I love breakfast food, but unfortunately just did not hit home this time. I would still give them another chance, next time we are there, but sure that Coco's right behind the Hilton Garden will allso work.

yes.. we would stay at the Hilton garden in Flagstaff again.

We booked the Hilton Garden Inn because the Hampton Inn was full and we took advice from other reviews on this website about staying away from the noise of the trains (they hoot all night).

The check in process was friendly and welcoming and the room very comfortable. Our only negative comment on our arrival would be that the Hilton Website's directions to the hotel say that on turning into Forest Meadows Street, the hotel is on the right at the top of the hill. In fact it should say it is on the right immediately after turning into the road.

Our room was at the rear of the hotel and fairly quiet although, there was some traffic noise, but we like to sleep with the window open so that may not bother others.

We found the bed very comfortable and there was an interesting arrangement on each side of the bed to adjust the firmness.

We paid a slightly higher rate to have breakfast included, as this is not in the basic room rate. It was an excellent buffet breakfast with everything that you could want.

The beds were hard as rocks, but I know some people prefer them to be firm. The room was clean, and perfectly comfortable, but not fancy. It wasn't that quiet - the walls are pretty thin, and you could hear the water running next door, the tv going, etc. They did have cookies at check-in, but they looked old and unappetizing. Breakfast was pretty good, but you have to pay extra for it.

Just stayed 4 nights at the Hilton Garden Inn whilst on our vacation to Arizona (The Grand Canyon). We found this hotel by chance and can thoroughly recommend it. The staff were very polite and knowledgeable. Rooms very smart, clean and kept very well. Would certainly stay there again and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Flagstaff.

We needed an overnight stay on our way to Boulder City, and tried this as a change from Williams, although overall we prefer Williams. This hotel is a bit out from the old Historic District and the nearest lounge is a bit of a walk. However, it has its own dining room and the adjacent Cocos restaurant is really excellent. Cocos has a little bar, but with little atmosphere. The Hilton Garden Inn staff are extremely friendly and chatty and they will sell you a bottle of wine for $13 that you can drink in their line and relax for the evening. Overall a nice hotel and good stop.
