Hilton Garden Inn – Pineville, NC

Hotel Review

For a quick trip to the Charlotte area, I was very happy to find a $89 room rate at a Hilton Garden Inn convenient to my meetings.  Check-in was easy and I had welcome letters from the property management both in my check in packet and in my room.  The room was typical HGI with a nice Aeron desk chair and high speed internet that worked very well for me.

They have a nice little fitness facility and pool.  The fitness room has a treadmill, elliptical trainer, and recumbent bike plus their is a nice selection of dumbbells and a bench for lifting.  The cooked to order breakfast was good and service friendly.  On arrival, I noted that their bar had to be the smallest one I had seen in a long time since it had room for exactly two people but noticed this morning that is was gone so it makes more sense knowing that it is a rolling, temp set-up.

Final Grade: A
