Sure, Hilton Greenville isn’t in trendy downtown Greenville proper, but if you’re looking for a sleek hotel at a sweet price, this hotel may be ideal for you. Hilton Greenville is well under five miles to the downtown action and 9.6 miles to the airport. This hotel is less than a half mile to South Carolina’s largest mall — the Haywood Mall — and is within a stone’s throw to a load of dining and entertainment.
The property also has a shuttle that chauffeurs guests from the Hilton to any downtown venue’s front door. The shuttle works within a five-mile radius and downtown Greenville is absolutely within those boundaries.
The Hilton’s standard rooms offer a king or double beds. A king bed corner will give you fabulous views. Upgrade to a king suite that delivers more square footage, a pullout sofa and access to the Executive Lounge that serves a continental breakfast and evening drinks and snacks Monday through Thursday. Rooms come with a mini-fridge and a flat-screen TV. Suites also have a microwave, but most standard rooms don’t. A communal microwave sits on the lobby by the front desk.
Other amenities include free parking and free Wi-Fi. The property’s onsite dining is a bistro serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You’ll also find a heated indoor pool and whirlpool sitting under an atrium, and a fitness center.

Spent 4 nights at the Hilton and overall the experience was okay.
The location is convenient and just off the highway. There are a lot of chain restaurants close by but none within close walking distance. The area appears okay and there were no safety concerns.
Everyone we met was friendly and helpful. When we checked in our card did work. After returning to the desk for a new key the manager walked back up with us to ensure the issue was resolved. Great customer service.
The lobby and restaurant are upgraded and more modern the rest of the hotel. Our room was not upgraded and did not match the decor of the hallway and lobby. Its possible that its up for a remodel and maybe some of the rooms are better than others. Ours showed much wear and tear. (rm 309) Just as an example there are chips in the paint and areas around the windows that require maintenance. We also found at times that the hot water was extremely hot. I would rate the overall room quality at 4/10.
We also left some dishes out in the hallway in the evening and found that they were still there pretty late the next morning.
Overall the hotel and lobby are relatively small and fall just a little shy of what you normally expect from Hilton. We did not have a bad experience but next time we are in town we try one of the other newer Hilton brands that are nearby.
We had a wonderful time and I see my family and I returning very soon .
The experience was a great one and the complementary fruit infused water in the lobby every day is amazing. My kids and I loved it . Thanks to all the Hilton team!
