The property is located on one of the Charleston Harbors. Access to the property can be a bit confusing but manageable and it is only a short drive to downtown and Med Univ of SC. The pillows are Not good they go flat as soon as your head settles we had to ge extra pillows for comfort. The breakfast buffet is good and omelettes are available and made on request for extra charge. Staff is curteous and responsive.

Hotel's Favourite
Stayed in room 332 with a balcony facing the water. Excellent room, very clean, the staff treated us with respect. Very few hotels around Charleston offer free on site parking so this was a plus as well. I wish we could have experienced the roof top restaurant as well as the free shuttles to downtown but it's understandable during covid. The only thing is the mattress could have been updated. It was not the most comfortable. Everything else was perfect.

This was a beautiful property. We loved the water view room. Very clean spacious room. Coffee was awesome and the bed was very comfortable. The shower was exquisite! My wife loved the fire pit. The tv was a nice size.

Regrettably discourteous throughout our stay. Room wasn’t ready for occupancy and the staff was sour. Asking for water was even perceived as burdensome. The parking garage was very convenient. Breakfast, unlike other Hilton’s we’ve stayed at wasn’t complimentary and unfortunately was inedible

This Hilton Garden Inn is a step above other HGIs. Room was huge and offered a nice view of the Ashley River and downtown. Restaurant in the lobby was great. Quick service, good food, and friendly staff. The young man who checked me in was very courteous and professional. The hotel was spotless and free parking was a huge plus. Less than 5 minutes to the tourist district and right across the street from the major medical centers. I will definitely return as I am in the area often.
