My husband and I were in town for a conference. Great location to the Classic Center. Rooms were clean and quite. Staff was unbelievably kind and courteous. The breakfast in the hotel restaurant was wonderful. Best Pancakes ever!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights while attending a conference across the street. We found the staff to be very nice and accommodating. We were able to check in early with no problem and park our vehicle upon arrival, so we could go straight to our meetings. Our room was clean, quiet and comfortably furnished. The hotel... More

We really enjoy this hotel. The staff is helpful, the room very clean and the location is perfect for walking around Athens. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 rating this time is because the bed was hard as a rock. We saw the next morning that it apparently was adjustable, but we went through a terrible night.

I travel to Athens a good bit for business and have stayed in a number of hotels in and around Athens. I prefer the HGI as the property is always well cared for and the staff is helpful and knowledgeable. The only couple of downsides is parking is pay to park at $10 per day and a complimentary breakfast is... More

I highly recommend this hotel. The location is excellent and in close proximity to dining facilities and recreational activities. It is an easy walk to the UGA campus. The location is an advantage if your trip allows time to visit the University and the civic center. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The parking deck is very convenient and... More

Not a bad place. The bed was comfortable and staff very nice. The wall unit is very noisy though when it cuts on and off. That is really the only reason I did not give it all 5 stars. Gym was adequate and very quiet. I ate breakfast at the restaurant; the staff was on top of things and helpful... More

This seems to be the best place to stay in Athens, GA. It is perfectly located in the heart of downtown, the facilities are great and the service was outstanding. The only thing preventing me from giving them 5-star review is that there is no pool or hot tub.

This is a clean and well maintained facility. Even the gym machines were clean. Staff was very friendly and professional. Fresh fruit available on the counter (grab and go). Coffee bar in lobby. If your staying in Athens, this is a great location. This hotel represents great service and value.

Hotel is very nice and clean. Has a lounge and eatery in the lobby. Directly across the street from the Classic Center. Had a King Corner room w/fold out sofa.

Great hotel and within walking distance to many restaurants. Easy access from the major roadways. Good food and excellent staff. Easy access to the garage for parking. Stayed here when in town for wedding and it was great. Cozy fireplace in the lobby. Highly recommend this location.
