Would definitely stay here again. The room was excellent - king bed corner room - comfortable and roomy. Great bathroom with two showers - tub/shower combo PLUS a shower stall. The business center was very useful. Wasn't crazy about paying for parking, however.

Booked the room on points as a Diamond member to stay the weekend of 11/23 during a UGA football game. Thought checking in on a Saturday would be simple (who's checking out on the day of a 7pm kickoff?!) but apparently no rooms ready until close to check-in time. Asked for a call when room was ready & actually got it (so there's a plus). No mention or thank you for status nor any amenity was given or offered, which is disappointing. After the game, tried to eat in the restaurant (which was less than half full) but the server came by once & asked "if everything was okay" like we'd been there the whole time finishing up & never came back so we left. Actual room itself was decidedly average, nothing at all special.

PROS: location right in downtown, walking distance from Classic Center, Sanford Stadium, etc. Private parking deck. rooms relatively quiet.

CONS: service seriously lacking in restaurant & somewhat aloof at front desk too.

NET: Best Hilton family option in the area for sure but was not impressed overall at all by it.

The hotel is located in the center of everything. The staff is very customer friendly.
It has a cocktail lounge which had a good selection of just about everything. You can walk to restaurants and shopping options.
The rooms were clean and well taken care of.
The breakfast is $ 8.95, but you could could get freshly cooked omelets, eggs and so on. I would stay there again if I am ever in the area.

Rooms were clean, staff was pleasant, location right in downtown made dinner and shopping easy. The price was reasonable, as we stayed on a Sunday night so there was no increased price for a game weekend.

An excellent hotel that is close to many good restaurants in downtown Athens. We had stayed there before, and the return trip was just as good. This is the perfect place to stay in Athens. My only complaint is the separate charge for parking.

GREAT hotel! GREAT location in downtown Athens . Walking distance to GREAT restaurant choices! GREAT staff!. They treat you like you are in your 2nd home . There are dozens of really good restaurants withing a 2-3 block walk: everything from inexpensive pizza places all the way up to extremely fine dining. Rooms are salways clean and very comfortable. The staff from check in to maintenance always ensure you are pleased and needs are taken care of quickly.

This place has an excellent downtown location, the hotel is clean, staff is friendly, it was an overall wonderful hotel experience. I'd say it was well above the average hotel experience. Lobby is welcoming, spacious, and nicely decorated. Rooms are comfortable and clean. This is now my go-to place in downtown Athens, GA. Highly recommended.
