Read review on Judy’s Book.

We were there for the State Chess Tournament. I hate to admit it but having lived in Seattle for 18 years, we’ve never been to the Tri-cities, so literally didn’t know what to expect. First of all, its super quick to get there. Just 3 hours from Seattle. The Hilton Garden is *the* place to stay if you’ve got something at the Convention Center. It is across the street. The rate was really great. $75 a night and that includes free broadband Internet access! Doesn’t include breakfast though. That’s $8 but include omelets made to order, waffles, etc. $4 for kids.

The staff there is Washington friendly. The only real bummer is the pool is pretty small, although the hot tub is warm. So if you’ve got a family thing out there, the price is good and the rooms are fine, plus there is broadband and free printing from your computer.

    Agree! HGI was superconvenient but the swimming pool was like sitting in the tub with our kids.
    one thing I found out – Google Maps isn’t the answer for everything- it routed us from Seattle to Kennewick through WA 243 and WA 240 – 60 miles of barren landscape with no rest stops or gas stations on a two-way undivided one-lane highway.
    We took Mapquest back on I-82 – multilinae divided and beautiful canyons- much more civilized!
