Hilton Garden Inn Athens Downtown

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Parking and front check-in was hard to find. Took 2 passes down 1 way street to find entrance. Sign would help.

Great experience. Perfect location and incredibly hospitable staff. Cleanliness completely on point and I would recommend this hotel to family, friends and strangers. Thank you Hilton Garden, you made my Athens experience unforgettable.

Charged nearly $10.00 to park in their garage. Breakfast additional $10.00 or so each. Tacky for a Hilton. I expected luxury for the price we paid. We were disappointed at the mediocre room and amenities. We had many other choices in Athens but chose Hilton expecting an above average experience. We'll not stay at Hilton again. Marriott much better quality at equal or lower cost.

Very pleased the staff is friendly,rooms are spacious,clean and beds very comfortable. We walked to a restaurant for dinner. The hotel restaurant had a very limited menu

This location is very convenient to downtown Athens & The University of Georgia. Hotel is clean. Showers are awesome!!

Nice room downtown easy walk to everything. Good amenities, but just stayed overnight.

Excellent hotel for the money, right in downtown Athens. I would recommend this hotel to others.

We stayed at the Athens Hilton Garden Inn and couldn't have asked for a better experience! The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of downtown where all the action is and within a 5 minute drive to the UGA pool. The room was comfortable and all of my crew were able to get a great night's sleep! We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

My family and I arrived after a few hours of driving and we were tired. We checked in and when we finally opened the door to our room it was a welcomed "sigh of relief" The room was clean, spacious and very inviting. My wife had some work to do at desk area, the kids hopped into the nicely prepared, beds to watch TV it was great!!!

Great hotel with a great location in Athens! I would stay here again.

The staff was awesome! Super friendly. I travel often and stay at large hotels but the staff was fantastic. We would definitely come back again!

Near perfect hotel to stay. Recommended! It was clean, located in a great area, very freindly staff!

Check in was quick and easy. Parking garage is close. You can walk to may shops and great places to eat.

We stayed here while in Athens for our sons orientation at UGA. The location was fantastic! We loved the fact that we could walk to the downtown area easily for nighttime strolls and dinner. The room was super comfy and clean. The only downside for us was that we didn't realize there was a $9.95 per day fee for parking or that breakfast was not included. Probably an oversight on our part! Wonderful place to stay with friendly staff.

This is the second nicest hotel in Athens after Hotel Indigo. It is conveniently located and a nice place to stay. My husband and I were satisfied.

This hotel was located right across from the Classic Center where we were attending a wedding. It was the little extras like Neutrogena bath products, fast WiFi, and pool that made this a comfortable stay. We had no problems enjoying the Athens night life afterwards. Beds were comfortable, but pillows were mehhh... $10/night parking...really? We'd stay again without hesitation.

Friendly, competent Front Desk staff, spotless rooms, breakfast with fresh ingredients, well prepared order and pleasant wait staff.

The hotel is in a great location, especially for football games. The hotel seemed pretty new or newly remodeled. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room wasn't cleaned during our stay, which was a little disappointing. And the hotel rate was a little outrageous, but I guess that's expected on a college football weekend.

This is a very nice hotel. The staff are friendly, and the rooms are clean. The bed is wonderful. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in downtown Athens, GA.

g good location clean friendly staff breakfast buffet good value
