Nice Experience

Immediate area if hotel is nice, but the areas about a mile away were pretty rough (we had to drive through them to get to the hotel) Otherwise it was clean and staff were nice and helpful. Parking situation was a little weird though in that they had gates but they weren't down which made it easier for non patrons to park in that lot.

affordable luxury

Our last minute plans made it difficult to find a hotel with vacancy and this was one of our only choices although a bit more expensive than we had wanted. We have stayed at Hilton Gardens before and they are ALWAYS top notch, this one was no exception. Very clean, very roomy (we randomly ended up with what they call a Murphy room, including an 8' conference table, kitchen and living room area), beautifully decorated. Comfy bed, the most soft and luxurious bedding and towels EVER. The staff was also super. We had trouble finding the hotel and arrived after midnight and called twice to get help. The girl at the front desk gave excellent directions and was so welcoming. The cleaner mopping the hallways was cheerful and pleasant too. It was well worth a few extra bucks. This hotel is right across the street from the Medical Center and probably lots of people from there use the hotel. Very convenient.

Lots of problems with staff

We had major problems checking in to this hotel. The staff kept telling us that we had made a mistake and put in our address incorrectly on our reservation. They tried to charge for the room twice- we had already paid through the website and the hotel staff tried to charge us again. They told us that our credit card had been declined, but this only happened because they put in our address incorrectly. Later we gave them the same card and it was fine. Also there was no continental breakfast at this hotel, which we had been expecting. Only a $11 breakfast available in the hotel restaurant. This did not feel like a very safe city to be in after dark and parking was a nightmare as the hotel did not have enough parking available. The room itself was fine, just noisy with traffic, but we would not stay here again.
