"During our last review of this particular Hilton Garden, we stressed "can't wait to return!" So we did. A bit of a disappointment, but I'm not sure if it's because of COVID or not. There is an appearance of trying to do everything right, but we found some cracks in their armor. There currently is no valet parking - self park and pay $10 a night in the garage. OK, that is completely understandable. Our room that we had selected ahead of time (we are Diamond members, and can choose a room 24 hours in advance) was not the one we chose. Really?? THAT HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE!! We picked a room (king bed) on the first floor so we wouldn't have to use the elevator. Nope. Our choice wasn't there. How come? Why? If the place isn't full, and you picked one of several options on the first floor, where did it go? We had a choice of 2nd or 3rd floor. We opted for second, so we didn't have to drag our bags up flights of stairs. When we arrived, our selection was next to the elevator. That is why we choose our own room!!! We don't want to be there!!! Once entering, I kicked off my shoes. Stepped on a stale chocolate chip. Then I stepped on the stem end of an orange. When was this placed vacuumed?? My wife then cleaned cobwebs off the desk lamp. In the bathroom, there was a live spider under the plastic drink cups. NOT LOOKING GOOD! We then noticed that there will be no daily cleaning. That is OK, because we don't want anyone entering during COVID. So, an overall C- rating for our stay. Won't be returning. Will try the Hampton Inn in Colchester, or the Homewood Suites in South Burlington."
"This hotel was in the heart of everything, easily walkable to all of the great local restaurants and shops. Staff was friendly. Only few complaints (and not bad enough to lower from 5 stars rating) were that the towels reeked of cigarette smoke, the bar wasn’t open late enough (in our opinion), and there was minor construction going on in the lobby area that should have been covered up/boarded up as it looked sloppy and unfinished as everyone staying in the hotel walks by it. Otherwise, we had a great stay and would recommend it to anyone staying in the Burlington downtown area. "
"This was my first time in Burlington overnight and this location is perfect and walkable everywhere. It was during the covid19 shutdown and the staff kept us informed and were flexible and friendly throughout. Only frustration is that they closed the pool early one day and it was literally the only thing to do. "

"We LOVE this place, everything about it. We decided to get away for a night and new HV was were we were going to stay. They are up to date on all of the brand new cleaning precautions and have hand sanitizer throughout the property. Be sure to check Vermont's travel restrictions before you go. Check in was easy and awesome. The rooms, and especially the shower, are perfect. It's such a great place. It was an added bonus that they also have bike storage if you need it. The wonderful people at the front desk over heard us talking about what we should do with our bikes over night and they offered the storage room, which made things a whole lot easier. The bartender was awesome, they were closing up shop when we arrived after getting back from dinner but still made is out drinks. It seemed like even as we were finishing our beverages she was still serving, not sure though. Parking was inexpensive and easily accessible. Just an overall awesome location and property."
"This is literally my favorite hotel. We have been here three times this year and I would come back again next week. I am sitting at the bar, enjoying a Maine soda and my husband is sipping a hill farmstead draft. When we drove up, Nick remember us and offered to help with whatever we needed. Such an amazing thing to be remembered. Checking in the front desk staff is so welcoming. Tim made sure we had a room that completely met our needs and gave us perfect food suggestions. Things I love (and they are silly), the water bottles in your room with a sparkling and still dispenser on each floor along with coffee, tea and fruit. The wooden pencil and graph paper notebook that I use for counting my knitting stitch’s for months afterwards. Not silly - the comphy mattress, bedding and pillows along with wool blankets and Vermont flannel company robes. The lovely shampoo, soap etc and the walk in showers. Mostly though - the vibe - warm, friendly and relaxing."
"We live in Vt and due to covid, we wanted a getaway that was in state. We booked a whirlpool room. loved the tub, but getting in and out was a bit of a challenge. You get in from the shower, and it a process to straddle trying to get in and out. That being said, we would still book this room again! No view but thats stated on the website. Shower had the best pressure in any hotels we've stayed in! Beds are just ok. Fireplace was nice! They ask that you only ride elevators with your party (due to covid) I liked this. And we never had a long wait. Parking is self parking in the garage attached. Only thing was our card sometimes didnt work, which was inconvenient. We had to back up and run inside to get a new card. (it happened twice). The front desk said it has happened before. They store your bikes! Which was huge for us. Biking was across the street! Front desk crew were amazing! Everyone super nice and helpful! Cant wait to go back"

"The surrounding area of the hotel is very convenient. It takes 5 minutes to walk to the most central shops and restaurants. There are various kinds of food, most of them are walking. Some old buildings are beautiful and there is a park. In addition, the hotel is only a few minutes away from the lake. View, there is a children’s museum by the lake, and you can go on a yacht. Every Friday night, there is a lobster buffet on the yacht. Living here is a very good choice for families and individuals."
"With older children, extra bed. The extra bed is 1.2 meters. There is parking lot. The location is very good, by the lake, normal American style in the morning. No surprises, no surprises."
"The scenery is very good at the lake"

"For a new Hilton brand hotel, I was quite surprised that floors were not concrete and they were squeaky and you could hear people on upper floors. Made me think I was staying at a cheap hotel, but was paying a high premium for this hotel! Beyond that, paint was peeling form bathroom ceiling. Also, breakfast staff was hidden in the back room and carrying on conversations and not paying attention or greeting guests. Other staff was very courteous though! Hotel hot tub looked much darker than pool water, which was concerning, but maintenance said it was normal. Still looked like dirty water to me though."
"I actually rented a suite for a business meeting during the day so did not try the beds. They kindly extended the late departure to 2 pm so we had plenty of time for meeting in living room. The kitchen was great and they provided complimentary snacks and soft drinks. Will do it again."
"hotel is conveniently located to downtown and restaurants. staff is always very friendly and rooms are always clean. I travel to VT a lot for work and have stayed a few other places but this is by far the best. love staying here!"

"Our most recent stay in February, at the Courtyard Marriott, in Burlington, Vermont – in Room 703 was the worst stay we have had at a Marriott. We check in for a two night stay on Wednesday night. On Thursday morning, we tried to order a continental breakfast (which was on the room service menu in the room) to be delivered to the room. Shame on us. We were told that, although there's a continental breakfast item on the room service menu, they could not bring it to the room. They could, however, bring a bagel, scone, fruit, yogurt, granola, and coffee to the room (everything in a continental breakfast). I felt like Jack Nicholson in "Five Easy Pieces". Not a good feeling when we are supposed to be staying at a good hotel. Ordering everything individually resulted in a much higher charge than the continental breakfast would have been. Of course. As we were getting ready to go workout in the fitness room, we were called at 10:00 am by Nathan because he was having difficulty with our Marriott Bonvoy credit card. Then he called at 10:15 am to tell us it was all fixed and we had to have new room keys made (which were brought to our room). We went to workout, and when we got back to the room, there was a message on our phone which we could not hear or erase. This means we had to cover the two phones with a hand towel to get rid of the blinking red light. We asked at the front desk about the message as we left the hotel to take a walk but no one knew anything about it. Then, after we returned from dinner, we tried to get a late check out for the next day, and it seems they needed our credit card again, they needed to swipe it again. And yes, they needed to swipe it a fourth time. Seems there was a problem with the machine? There was no problem with our card. The next morning, we ate breakfast in the dining room and there was the continental breakfast on the menu, with a note that it can only be eaten in the dining room. This note was not on the room service menu. All of this makes no sense. To top it off, the continental breakfast in the dining room is a buffet style service. This information is not listed anywhere. I found out that my breakfast was self-serve from a very snippy snarky waitress who stomped towards me telling me my breakfast was self serve. I told her I didn't know this, and was told "everyone knows this". Guess not, and regardless if everyone knows this, I am the customer and I do not enjoy being barked at by the waitress. I had my breakfast removed from the bill and did not eat anything. Being barked at diminishes my appetite. There's no reason to stay at the Courtyard Marriott. The Hotel Vermont is right next door. If you're staying at the Hotel Vermont, they will deliver anything on the menu to your room. They don't have the bait and switch routine going on there. Where they offer an item on the menu but then you’re required to order the same thing at a price of more than four times the"
"We booked a King room with the whirlpool and view of the lake. Our stay was excellent - the employees at the front desk were friendly, the room was clean, and our dinner at the restaurant was delicious (it's a little pricey for what you get, but we were satisfied). My only room complaint is with the wooden doors that open from the bathroom to the regular room - they're there so you can soak in the tub and view the lake, but when they're closed you feel like you can hear everything going on in the room. It's not the best if you want complete privacy and the windows are too high anyway to see the lake from the tub!"
"Enjoyed a lovely one-night stay in a lakefront room. Check-in was fast and friendly. King room on 7th floor was very clean, modern and provided a beautiful full-on view of Lake Champlain. Easy quick walk up to Church Street and all local restaurants. Dined at the Farmhouse which had a great selection of craft beers, good food and pleasant host. Nicely decorated lobby with bar and fireplace. Breakfast at Bleu was marked by great service, full menu and delicious food. Will definitely return on next visit to Burlington."

401 Dorset Street, South Burlington, Vermont, United States
"Included Breakfast, evening meal with drinks on weekdays, coffee 24/7, free WiFi and parking, great location in terms of ready access to local bookstore/shopping/restaurants or to downtown Burlington, 30 min drive to Waterbury/Stowe ski areas, 15 mins to Shelburne, 2 hrs to Montreal via scenic Champaign Islands and the frozen lake set against the mountains....plus it's pet-friendly. The gym is very decent although a bit limited in space, and the pool/hot-tub are nice hotspots for a cold day. You'd be hard-pressed to find an equivalent spot for the value anywhere. GMS will be top of our list on our return to this area."
"I booked three nights at Green Mountain Suites, check was easy, we were assigned to 1 Bdrm. Villa (#134) with fireplace very cute and comfortable, we didn't like the location, on first floor facing Dorset Street corner location facing street lights, people walking by , and traffic. Went back to front desk and s/w Lynette I believe her name was, said she will work on another room the next day. Well the whole team was on point by 11:30 we were upgrades to Villa # 139, 1 bdrm. with fireplace & Jacuzzi. Thanks you for the upgrade. Resort is small and cozy would visit again. "
"We stayed here for 2 nights and it was well worth it! We got a fully furnished room and that was so convenient! They even included dish soap and dishwasher pods which was wonderful. This was also the only hotel we stayed at during our stay that made breakfast work with all the precautions going on. They had a pretty great assortment of grab and go breakfast items which was much appreciated. The room was very nice, super clean, the bed was very comfy and the gentlemen that we checked out with was very friendly! All in all a very good stay!"

"The room facilities are fantastic, the bedding is of high quality and the room has a microwave fridge and coffee maker. Towels and bath towels are very soft and there is a car to pick up the airport. But call to inform them. My friend said that the Greyhound from Montreal will stop at the hotel."
"The price is really high, the room facilities are old, the price is completely upside down! The service attitude of the hotel pick-up and drop-off vehicles is very good, and the front desk service reception attitude is also very good. I don't know if such a high price is the high cost of the Ctrip platform intermediate service fee or other reasons. Please give the consumer a statement. Thank you!"
"Really a good hotel, I will go to live next time, just have a small suggestion, can breakfast change every day, stayed there for 10 days, breakfast is very capricious without any change! Maybe American life habits are like that?"

"I'd never stayed at a Fairfield, but being Marriott brand I thought it would be quite good. Quite disappointing, actually. I was on business but I had lots of free time. The pool was closed. indefinitely. They claimed it would be too much trouble to keep social distancing guidelines with COVID-19 going on. Note I have stayed at several other hotels recently, their pools were all open and no one was supervising them. The rooms - small, very little space. Cram 2 queen beds in there and then the furniture directly in front of it. I think that's what really got to me, being crammed in this little hotel space for 2 weeks, next visit up there I'll be asking to stay at the Residence Inn - those always have plenty of space and a kitchenette to boot. No room service the entire time I was there. I was there several days, no one came in to clean the room. No fresh towels, no clean linens, no removal of trash. I checked out for a couple of days to go down to Connecticut, came back and then was there for 9 days in a row. Again, no room service. I ended up taking out my own trash and filling up the tiny trash can by the ice machine. If you wanted coffee packets, you had to go down to the front desk and ask for them. Since they were out of them more often than not, it also added to the rather tainted view I now of have of this particular business model that Marriott has. It's really just a glorified Motel 6. Their breakfast bar shut down, the now-eternal excuse of the virus, they were instead giving you a piece of fruit and bottled water in a bag. I guess it's better than nothing. Funny that they had the fitness room open but the pool and buffet closed. What's the difference? People sweating leaving their germs all over the place is better than people standing in front of a glass lined buffet? Or a chlorine adjusted swimming pool? Sounds more like a ploy to decrease costs at the expense of their guests to me. Staff was friendly and chatty, I'll give them that much. The place is clean and the facility isn't old, worn down or smelly. it's right next to the Interstate - no road noise but convenient. There are several restaurants right down the street - Chili's, Logan's Roadhouse, a Tavern making brick-fired pizza and a decent menu, Panera bread, a grocery store, an irish pub (excellent food) and other small, mom and pop eateries, some of which I visited. Pricey area for what you are getting. No fast food chains that I saw anywhere - not that I want to eat at those types of places but just head's up. Oh, most restaurants are requiring an "appointment". If you show up at a lot of these places, they will turn you away. You will also have to wear a mask in any type of business. The airport is just a few minutes away, but there are better hotel options in the area. Champlain lake isn't far, neither is the "infamous" Church Street, which I also visited. Another nice Irish pub there, must be some Irish blood in this area. Cor"
"Tripadvisor reviews are a great resource - I wish I read them more carefully before booking this disaster of a "hotel." The issues I will describe, have been described by numerous reviewers going back several years - repeated offenses. What this signifies is that hotel management does NOT cares about their guests, and YOU, the guest, should NOT care to stay here. At most hotels, there are a basic amenities that most guests expect to have - a toilet, a TV, a safely-lit parking lot, and wifi. Well at this hotel, these did not work during my stay, and have been noted not to work in other reviews as well. The parking lot is an accident or crime scene waiting to happen. Besides the door, the rest of the parking lot is pitch black at night - no light fixtures anywhere. It is extremely scary, and absolutely not safe at night. The ramp to the parking lot is not lit (there is a light fixture but it is either never turned on or broken) and wraps around a blind bend. Be very careful going around it or you could end up in a head-on collision. The toilet has low pressure and clogged on the first use. When I reported it to the front desk, I was assured this had been noted and that the maintenance woman would fix it first thing when she arrives. Lo and behold when I came back to my room 12 hours later, the toilet was just as I had left it and the maintenance woman had gone home for the day. No notes, no noticeable evidence that an attempt had even been made. The TV displays a black "No signal" screen more than it does tv programming. This was consistent across all channels, local and cable. When I initially notified the front desk, they accused me of making it up because they had "never heard of this." The next night, after a failed attempt to fix wiring, when I spoke to a different receptionist, they admitted that this has been ongoing across the entire hotel and that management is aware. If you read tripadvisor reviews, this has been happening since 2017. The hotel has a bad dish satellite apparently. You would think that with all of these room problems, the hotel would offer to switch rooms. Thats what most hotels do. Nope, that was never an option here. I guess something must be wrong with those other rooms too.... Two positives - Logan, the evening housekeeper, deserves good praise. He was always quick to respond and has a very pleasant demeanor. Additionally, the showerhead was nice and provided good pressure. However, the hot water ran out every time, so each shower was finished on a cold, wintery note. I am a silver-level Marriott member and have stayed at my fair share of Marriott locations, including the Fairfield Inn location in Waterbury, VT. This location (Burlington-Williston), is by far the worst I have ever stayed at. There is a plaque on the wall at reception that states that it is owned and managed by two independent operators - well, it shows. It is a disgrace to the Marriott brand."
"For a holiday weekend in Vermont, I found the price very appealing and had all the amenities I needed for my stay. Location was near a lot of restaurants and a movie theater. But hard to find at night (there were no lights at the entrance). Queen beds were super comfortable. I liked that the sink vanity was outside the bathroom so the shower didn’t steam up the mirror. Plus, one person could get ready while the other showered. Very nice glass enclosed shower! No tub, which I prefer. Fitness room was 3 treadmills and an elliptical. Weights. TVs on each. Free Morning breakfast was your typical free hotel breakfast: awful scrambled eggs; no taste bread/bagels. My goto was hot oatmeal with walnuts and fixins. Overall, would definitely recommend this place!"

"The breakfast was very good. Our room type cannot accommodate an extra bed, but there is a sofa bed that can be opened. Many families are taking children. There are two parking lots, close to the two doors, very large, and finally there are vacancies. The staff is very warm and courteous."
