Located less than 15 minutes from the Fort Wayne International Airport, this Hilton Garden Inn is situated about 20 minutes away from the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo. Families will love visiting the animals or catching a baseball game at the Tincaps stadium downtown. After a day of touring the town, families can head back to the hotel and take a dip in the indoor pool. The kids will love to swim and splash, while mom and dad relax.
The comfortable and spacious guestrooms and suites feature a mini-fridge, microwave and complimentary Wi-Fi. Families can start and end each day with a delicious meal at the onsite restaurant, the Great American Grille, where they will find a made-to-order breakfast and a variety of dinner options, too.

Customer service oriented hotel however the strong musty smell from the lobby to the room will ensure that I do not return. The shower head is also hard to control as extra towels were necessary to soak up the water that escaped the shower curtain despite my best efforts
The hotel is. It is clean but shows lots of wear and tear throughout. The rooms are very outdated but clean. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful The breakfast costs $12 and you get nothing special for it. I would expect better food quality for the amount charged.
The indoor pool is a nice place for families to hang out after touring around Fort Wayne. It is open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. and pool towels are provided. There are plenty of tables and chairs surrounding the pool area for the adults to relax in, as well. On a warm summer day, the outdoor patio just off the pool offers even more tables and chairs to enjoy in the sun.
