Epic Travelocity Fail

We got there and the hotel had no record of our reservations. The hotel was very good about it, they had a room, lower rate than we had reserved, and gave us free breakfast for our stay to make up for the hassle. Clearly they know how to treat guests! First time I've been burned by online reservations, but the humans made it right, and were very gracious.

Great hotel, great location, made me feel at home.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
We loved this hotel. We're very picky; the hotel needs to be clean from top to bottom. The front desk staff was very approachable, helpful and friendly. The bed, linens and pillows were very comfortable. The rooms were well lit, and housekeeping did above and beyond their job to bring us fresh supplies. My one and only complaint about the hotel? We were both sick during our stay and we couldn't get the room to a cool temperature that was comfortable; it always felt hot in the room. The fitness room and pool/hot tub were clean, well lit and well equipped as well. Location of the hotel is terrific, especially if you're in town for a concert at the Arena right across the street. The hotel even provided shuttle service.

Makes my life easier!

I've stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn in Wilkes Barre several times for business meetings and I find it a very comfortable property to stay at and make myself feel at home. The staff is always friendly and accomodating. The rooms are very spacious and equipped with a microwave and refrigerator for quick snacks and drinks. The fitness room is small but has everything I need. And I like to take advantage of their breakfast buffet as they have hot items made to order.
