The gym is large and has both dumbbells and a cable machine and well as treadmills and elipticals. Rooms are nice and comfortable. The beds are adjustable from hugs-you-like-a-bear...

We spent two nights at the Cary-Raleigh, NC Hilton Garden Inn. There was mention of many of the amenities at check-in but no mention about the fact that the mattresses were adjustable to one's desired firmness. We spent our nights sleeping on a concrete-hard mattress, wondering why the Hilton would buy these for their guests. It wasn't until we checked...

When I stay somewhere with the brand-name of Hilton, I expect to get more for my money. The decorations of the hotel were nice, but superior customer service is far more important. I can get better customer service at Chick-Fil-A. Beware, breakfast is probably not included and will cost you $12.00 plus tip.

This is an excellent hotel in a great area. Far away enough from the congestion in the Crabtree area but close enough to enjoy a quick ride over. Love the room was nice and clean and the breakfast was great and reasonable. Would highly recommend!
