“New hotel - difficult to find address on google maps! Great place! ;)”
Reviewed 18 October 2008

First of all, I'm connected to their high speed wireless Internet using my iPhone in the hotel lobby. So, you are getting a first hand review almost real time review ;)

I checked in last night at around 6pm. Check in was extremely quick and the girl working the front desk was very welcoming. This particular Hilton garden inn is updated in the sense that where the Great American Grill is in the usual HGIs there's a new restaurant called "Coast." I just had breakfast which is an all you can eat buffet for $11.95/person. Typical breakfast fare - eggs bacon sausage etc. Coffee is self serve in the lobby. Small pool area, but functional. Lobby has a bar in it which opens up in the evenings.

The rooms are very nice! The beds are a little firm for my liking, but they're comfortable to sleep in. Nice flat panel screens in the room ( if I could figure out how to swipe one out of here, I would..LOL!). Again, wireless available in the rooms (and hard wired connection is available too). Soda and ice vending machines on the 2nd and 7th floors.

The best way to get here is to get on I-275 and find the westshore blvd exit. I wound up getting onto Kennedy blvd, but still connected to westshore (not sure how I managed that, but whatever.. I'm here and that's all that matters). Take westshore to spruce street. Turn left on spruce and head down about 2 miles. The hotel is right across from the airport entrance on your left inside Avaian Park which looks like it's going to be an up and coming commerce center ((still under development).

I'm impressed with this location! I quote the ad, "BIG day tomorrow? Stay (at this) HGI tonight!" ;)

Enjoy your stay!!!

This place just opened in August and is really quite nice. The lobby is typical of a Hilton Garden Inn but with a fancy water feature wall with the restaurant's name on it. I think it is called Coast. When I arrived at the airport around midnight, I called the hotel and they sent the shuttle right away. I didn't wait more than 10 minutes. The hotel is located just outside the airport, so it is very close. Check-in was very simple and courteous. I was given a room on the 6th floor and I believe it was a "suite" with a living room with a separate flatscreen tv. The bedroom and living room are separated by the bathroom. The artwork in the room will please aviation enthusiasts. There are several artsy pictures of jet engines and wings.

The breakfast was really good and in the typical layout of most Garden Inns. The hotel has a gym and a pool that both look very nice. I didn't use them though. Every staff person I encountered was very nice and professional. Even though the hotel is near the end of the runway, I never heard any airplane noise. In fact the hotel is extremely quiet. The airport shuttle was parked outside the hotel and waiting when I checked out. The same shuttle services the other Marriott property next door and the future Homewood Suites being constructed across the driveway. The shuttle takes no more than a few minutes....such a convenient hotel in every way.

Brand new! Great location near airport. Rooms and the staff were top notch. Internet worked well. Get breakfast included in your rate.The buffet is $13, but you can get free breakfast for $5.00 extra in your room rate.
