Recently I stayed here for 5 nights, on a work trip. I was pleasantly greeted by the front desk staff the moment I walked in and I found their smiles and pleasant personalities to be consistently on display throughout the week! The property itself felt clean and up-to-date, without coloring out of the lines in terms of the usual Hilton Garden Inn style. This is a a typical Hilton Garden Inn layout-wise. The fitness center seemed a little larger than usual which was nice -- I always feel so on top of whoever else may be in that room with me which usually gives me an excuse to cut short my workout. The pool room adjoins to the fitness center, and the folks in the pool room have a full on view of whoever is working out, which I don't care for in any hotel, but I know it is a typical hotel feature -- I guess the windows to the fitness room are for "safety". Besides that, the rooms are typical. I had a usual king bed, overlooking the front of the hotel ( I always ask for the side that gets more sun). My mini-fridge seemed less than fridge-cold, so I had to request that it be fixed, since a temperature dial was not evident in the fridge interior; it was fixed right away. I also liked how the room coffee service provided little pots of half-and-half as opposed to that crappy powder creamer. Hallelujah for that! Also liked the Tazo teas. I rated this property a 3 out of 5 for sleeping, because I could clearly hear the family of three (with a little kid) in the room next to me. I wasn't really able to figure out the fan/ac system to my liking. I want that constant white noise and & I did not get it. Food Service: One night I had room service. Unfortunately, i was disappointed in the linguini I ordered. First of all, not very tasty -- it was supposed to have a white wine sauce with vegetables; extra for the chicken; to me it just tasted watery. Where was the flavor? Chicken was also overdone and barely any vegetables. In addition, there was just way too much of it -- my plate could have easily fed a family of four. If I want a grotesque amount of food. I'll head to the Cheesecake Factory. Of course I did not eat it all but I hate to be wasteful. I thought that the Hilton Garden Inn was supposed to promote healthy lifestyles but I can tell that this philosophy has yet to permeate to the menu, which is disappointing for someone like me who is on the road so much. On the bright side, the location of this hotel has easy access to the interstate is near all of the big-box shopping, as someone else said. If I am in town again, I would stay here again for the service and relatively modern amenities, but I will still plan on eating most of my meals at the Good Earth Food Market, in downtown Billings. Note about the parking: Free and uncomplicated as usual, but please be mindful of the cute big bunnies hopping around the property -- I saw 2 of them take cover on a snowy night underneath the Hilton Garden Inn airport van.
