The Hilton Garden Inn Raleigh-Durham was one of the first of the prototypes to be built. Hardin worked with Hilton and the Developer to build prototype hotel for Hilton, and was an integral part of the team that established the quality level for future Hilton Garden Inns, including the extensive analysis of all building components, systems, schedules and costs.
The hotel is located in an office park close to the Raleigh Durham Airport. This 102,000-sq.-ft., six-story, 157-key hotel includes conference rooms for executive meetings or training classes and an on-site, full-service restaurant. Each guest room is equipped for the business traveler with modem access and a desk/work area.
