We booked a room for an outrageous gouging 305/night for two nights during a game weekend. It turns out that the week before we called to cancel the second night which we had prepaid in advance. Our confirmation email gave a 1800 # to call should we have to change this advance purchase reservation. It said we could get a credit less a $25 fee if we rebooked another Hilton property. The 1800 number attendant said they have not heard of this rate and that the hotel was the only one that could change our reservation. I was directed to Patrick the hotel resevation manager who led be to believe he was the one to talk to. Then he said he would have his manager call me and she never did. The hotel had plenty of rooms available. They were not sold out. They had nothing to lose by working with us. Yet, they refused. There is something wrong going on at this hotel. I will never stay at Hilton because the national # rep. has no control over the price gouging and management here.

If you want to be in the center of it all Hilton Garden is the place for you. You are just steps away from great dining, world famous music venues, shopping, UGA and the Classic Center. Very clean, modern rooms, great hotel amenities and a friendly staff make for a great stay.

The selling point for this hotel is its location - I went to UGA and like to visit regularly to get my fill of Athens, and you can't argue with this perfect location right in the middle of downtown, only 2 blocks from North Campus. It is a brand new HGI, which means it is clean, large and comfortable, with all of the standard amenities, and no free meals offered. The restaurant offers high-priced standard meals, so skip this and eat in downtown Athens, where there are MANY decently-priced great restaurants (it's a student town, after all). 5-Star Day Cafe (walkable) and Mama's Boy (driveable) in particular offer incredible breakfasts. Yes, you have to pay to park. This is the only reason the hotel gets 4 stars instead of 5- because other downtown hotels offer free parking (though they are a little further out). No, there is no mini-bar for the reviewer from Australia - the Hilton Garden Inn brand is not where you'll find that. Besides - you're in downtown Athens, with more bars per capita than any other town in the whole USA, and they always have cheap drinks and great specials (again...student town). If you're in Athens, don't sit in your hotel room and drink, walk 2 feet away from the hotel and give any one of the myriad restaurants/bars a try. In sum, the location is perfect, the parking is $10/night, the food/drinks should be found elsewhere in downtown where it is plentiful, cheap and fantastic, and this is a wonderful hotel room for exploring Athens and UGA. I stay here every time I'm in Athens (if it isn't full - if you into this, may I suggest the Foundry Park Inn down the street). Go Dawgs.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor if you're there on a weekend during school terms - might be a bit loud by the street.

The staff we encountered this weekend was so nice and very helpful. We had breakfast in the hotel twice and would give it high marks for options (including made to order eggs, omelets, etc). The rooms were clean and the beds are amazing. We had drinks in the bar and the bartender was very attentive and fun. My only complaint (and I have this in just about every hotel room) is there is TOO MUCH AMBIENT LIGHT. The clock, the temp gauge, the microwave, tv, light switches all have little lights that glow all night. It is too much light for a good night sleep. I'm going to start traveling with black electrical tape to cover all these lights! I would recommend this hotel and stay there again. You have to pay $10/night to park - I consider this a junk fee and would like to see it eliminated or added to room price so you know what you are paying when comparison shopping.

I have stayed at this property once before. It is a nice property, a very good standard HGI. They have business center, workout room, pool etc. The do have an onsite restaurant that seems only busy at breakfast. Where this property falls short is on value and they charge you $10 a day to park. There is no free parking in downtown Athens so I guess they feel entitled. The room rate and parking drag this property down to a average stay.
