It was six below zero and the wind was howling. There were four of us, my wife, our daughter, her newborn son, and myself. We needed a suite so that the person in charge of the baby could close the door and the other two could sleep. (We rotate nighttime care.) Up popped the Hilton Garden Inn, and it was on our way toward southern Indiana and my family. We reserved a suite.
Wasn't a suite. It's a long hallway with a narrowing in the center for the kitchenette (more on that) and the bathroom. No door. It was late and we had just flown in from Oregon so we stayed.
The living room area furniture was shabby. OK, we can live with that and we did. The kitchenette had a coffee maker, microwave and mini-fridge, no cooking items as many suites do. But, again, it wasn't a suite. Oh, and it was expensive. We could have chosen Embassy Suites, and should have, but I made a mistake.
The woman at the desk was most helpful and friendly. The beds were very comfortable and clean with nice bedding. It was fairly quiet, except for the baby. :-) The place was undergoing repairs so the lobby was a bit of a construction site but that wasn't a problem at all. The guy running the morning buffet was very accommodating.
But I'd say three stars due to the expense and the non-suite suite, and because three of the four of us, by morning, were exhausted due to lack of sleep. New babies want to eat often.
