Hilton Garden Inn Macon/Mercer University Hotel Review: Enter the lobby of this contemporary hotel in cold weather, and you'll be cheered by a roaring fire in the lobby's fireplace. Comfortable seating and a warm color palette give this lobby the feeling of a fine living room. The 101 rooms (including six suites, two per floor) feature either one king or two queen beds. These luxurious beds are clad in high thread-count linens, and the king beds may be adjusted for firmness on each side. Baths feature vanities with granite tops. Excellent for the business traveler, the rooms come with generously sized work desks with ergonomic chairs and electric plugs and high-speed Internet connections at desktop level. Complimentary wireless connections are also available. All rooms come with 32-inch flat-screen TVs, mini-refrigerators and microwaves. Suites additionally offer pull-out sofas in a living area that also has a flat-screen TV and a hospitality area where the coffee maker, mini-refrigerator and microwave are found. Not just for business travelers, the hotel offers extras for children, such as cribs and playpens. The house restaurant, Great American Grill, serves breakfast and dinner, and room service is available until 10 p.m. A bar offers service during the same hours as the restaurant. A 24-hour pantry stocks beverages, snacks and sundries. Other than service animals, pets are not allowed.
