If you are planning a long and rather expensive stay it may be worth stopping by and speaking with hotel manager ahead of time to see if he/she can offer you some extras (perhaps daily hot breafast at HGI or an extra large room or smth else along those lines).

Which one should I choose?

Hilton Garden
<LI>+ $5 pantry money with each checkin
<LI>- Hot breakfast costs extra (Diamond just gets regular breakfast)
<LI>- No room upgrades.
<LI>+ More business guests - quieter.

Homewood Suites
<LI>+ Suite upgrades
<LI>+ Hot breakfast every morning
<LI>- Rest of breakfast buffet isn't quite as nice at Hilton Garden
<LI>- More kids/families staying (noisier)
