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
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.
