Would’ve been perfect, but the lobby area was under construction :(

Meh...OK facility, not the best experience.
At check in was presented room with one King bed (no sofa or roll-away) even though I confirmed with hotel we'd have 2 adults + one child. Was switched to two queen room without incident though door did not latch/lock behind itself (room 120); we took our valuables with us when leaving and used door bolt at night. Bartender in lounge was not friendly or professional--My family (staying in a different room) requested a glass of warm milk for her 1 year-old and reply was "we don't have any milk available." Really?!? There's a breakfast buffet right here next morning. Ended up calling room service to have it brought up.

Poor design
This hotel was designed very poorly. We were given a handicapped accessible room for unknown reasons. So I'm not sure if all the rooms are the same design. There was literally about 6 inches of space on each side of the bathroom sink. No other place to unpack bathroom items so I had to leave them in the bag which was a pain for a 3 day stay. The lighting is atrocious. Only 2 bar lights built into the bathroom mirror with opaque glass over them. Make up application was a challenge. Good overhead lights in the rest of the bathroom but it's so large to accommodate a wheelchair that they don't illuminate the sink. In the room itself, 1 lamp on the desk, 1 by 1 side of the bed, and 2 small reading eyeball lights on each side of the bed. The only overhead was by the door. No dresser, just wire baskets by the closet. Thin walls, you can hear everything in the next room. Very clean. Bed was comfortable.

Hotel was very clean and all staff were very helpful. In our room, there was no way to control the level of the fan on the heating/cooling unit; it was either on high or auto which blew on high, no way to lower it. As the blower was very loud on high, it was difficult to sleep. We have stayed at many Hilton Garden Inns in the past , and have enjoyed free breakfast at most I believe. The $12.95 cost for the breakfast at this hotel seemed very high! We did not eat breakfast at the hotel.
