I did the advance e-check in and room was still not ready till 3:50pm. Thought this was very late and they said they were so busy. They are not used to a busy weekend group. Need to hire more people. The hotel could use some upgrades in rooms overall. The air conditioner was loud and kept cutting off and on.

Thank you for your review. I understand how frustrating it is to not have a room ready for you at an expected time. I apologize for any inconvenience this caused. I will review this incident with both the front desk and housekeeping team to ensure that this does not occur again in the future. Thank you for bringing it to...

Best service I have ever had at a hotel. Visiting for a dance convention at the Classic Center. The weekend was very hectic for my daughter and I and both the front desk staff as well as the restaurant staff went out of their way to help make sure we were fed when we had our brief breaks. Location can...

Clean, neat. Staff very nice. Lobby was very comfortable. Location was perfect for our event. Parking was convenient (but a little pricey). You can walk to several places to eat. No need to use the car.

We had two horrible nights because we were never advised that the mattresses were adjustable. We never turned them on and they were awful. Without adjustment, they are so soft that YOU CAN NOT GET OUT OF BED without and acrobatic struggle! Make sure you tell housekeeping to bring fresh coffee cups and replace K-Cups every day or they will...

This is typical Hilton Garden Inn located across the street from the Classic Center in Athens, GA. Walking distance from numerous restaurants in the area. Well kept public areas even with the crowds that were in the hotel - impressed! Parking is convenient also but tight.

Most convenient location to the Classic Center and downtown. Comfy rooms and friendly staff. They place fresh fruit for you to grab on your way to morning meetings and warm cookies in the afternoon :)

When staying in the Athens area this is my #1 choice in hotel accommodations. The property is top notch and the staff is always friendly and helpful. The location is absolutely wonderful. While the hotel restaurant meal selections are numerous and tasty, it's well within walking distance to a variety of delectable restaurants should one wish to venture out for...

Hotel is very nice. However, I didn't know that I had to pay $10.00 extra per night for parking. The restaurant hours are terrible, and they are not posted. The location is great, because it is right in the middle of Athens, Ga, and you can walk to bars, restaurants, and shopping places.

Thank you for your comments. I understand how frustrating it is to have an unexpected charge. I apologize for any inconvenience. Based on our downtown location we have a parking deck that does charge for parking. Our restaurant hours are posted on the wall and in our guest directory.
