One of my favorite brands within the Hilton portfolio is the Hilton Garden Inn because you get so much without breaking the bank.
I recently stayed at this HGI and was quite impressed. First off, your initial impression upon arriving to the hotel, especially at night, may not be so favorable; it's smack dab facing the freeway, and there isn't anywhere within walking distance to grab a bite to eat. But once you get inside, it's like magic, as the lobby is so warm and inviting. Checking in was so fast, so friendly, many thanks to Monique!
My room was quite standard and consistent of every HGI I've stayed it but this particular location had a couple unique touches. In my room was a welcome letter, personalized to me, with a piece of chocolate. Also, in the bathroom, they had an individual pack of make up remover, sitting on top of the face towels. I had to think about it for a sec; I put two and two together and realized that it was an ingenious idea, as I'm sure make up simply ruins their face towels. I'm sure those of us who wear make up would appreciate this amenity. In addition to those items, the room had the usual Keurig machine, microwave, fridge, comp wifi and my favorite, the signature HGI adjustable beds which have to be the most comfy beds, ever! There was a slight cleanliness issue as I found a few strands of hair in the bathroom; one in the sink, one on top of the toilet reservoir, and one on the toilet seat. I'm not so squeamish about that, I'm a pro at staying at hotels, I've dealt with much worse situations, this was nothing.
I got a coupon for their breakfast but didn't use it as I was pressed for time, but hopefully I can use it on a future visit???
With that said, I can say that I'll definitely stay here again and would certainly recommend it!
