Our stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Stuttgart was part of our German Road trip (that page has links to all the hotels, restaurants and places visited).
Our stay at this Hilton was so we could visit the nearby Porsche Museum, Mercedes Museum and Ludwigsburg Palace. I can’t imagine that people stay here for any other reason except to attend matches at the Mercedes Benz Arena – home to German Bundesliga club VfB Stuttgart. The hotel is directly next to the arena and so this is the view you’ll see from your window.
We were able to park directly outside, although had to move the car to the street afterwards – hotel parking is €16.
Check in was smooth, although there was no mention of an upgrade for our two room bookings; one Diamond, one Gold HHhonors. We were also informed that the hotel restaurant was closed for refurbishment and so we’d need to go elsewhere for dinner.
On arrival at my room, it was clear this was the lowest level room. And I might have accepted that had the bed wasn’t so small.
The bathroom was okay.
I returned to reception and asked if they had any better rooms – it looked like the hotel was completely full. After several minutes, they decided to offer me an accessible room – that was fine with me. This room was much better, with an entry hall, large bed and more windows.
The bathroom was accessible – I quite like the large walk-in shower.
Breakfast was okay – what you’d expect from a Garden Inn.
If you’re planning to visit the car museums, Ludwigsburg Palace or attend a football match then the Hilton Garden Inn will suffice. Apart from that I can’t see any reason for anyone to stay here.
