Hotel is extremely quiet. It is in a great location to the convention center across the street plus the downtown area. Room was very clean. Pillows caused me to have neck pain and I tried both types of pillows. Cookies were not available as usual, which was disappointing. Overall, an excellent stay.

This is the best hotel in Athens to stay if you are attending anything at the Classic Center. The location is perfect and there are many city attractions (dining, shopping, etc.) within walking distance.

I stay here for 2 nights every year for a conference at the Classic Center and was there this week. The hotel is very well-run, the rooms are spacious and include fridge/microwave, and the location is perfect. Everything downtown is easily accessible (restaurants, shops, clubs). The staff are friendly and helpful. I especially like the in-room Keurigs.

Great location but did not know the hotel was under extensive remodel. Kind of noisy on lower levels, breakfast and bar area are temporary so this was an issue. Wait for remodel to be done or deal with the construction.

Thank you for staying with us. As you noted we are working on a refresh of our lobby. The replacement of the wall covering in the restaurant during your stay is now complete. We will complete our tile grouting this week and that will finish any lobby upgrades that involve noise. I apologize for any inconvenience this caused during your...

I had traveled to Athens to attend the Georgia spring football game with friends. Walking aimlessly looking for a restaurant, we were stopped by a young lady named Alyssa. She, out of the goodness of her heart, took time out of her schedule to help up find a restaurant. Came to find out, she worked at the Hilton Garden. She...

Terribly run down hotel and definitely NOT worth the rate. Athens has limited options but so far this hotel has been our worst experience. If you don't mind old he location of this property is good. Only positive comment I am able to make

This hotel is located in downtown Athens where you can walk to restaurants, shops and activities. Located next to the university, you can stroll on campus as well. The staff is very friendly. All rooms were very clean and our experience was amazing. Highly recommend the penthouse suite to double as hospitality suite when needed.

A solid downtown property, within an easy walk to Athens bar scene and the U GA campus. There is a parking garage, which is much needed by guests because there is no other practical way to get there. Note that they charge $10/day for the parking privilege. BTW, the check-in, garage entrance, bus parking, etc. area can be a zoo,...
