Ask for Mia During Breakfast at Hilton Garden Inn Merrillville, IN Headed through Merrillville, Indiana?  Need a comfortable place to stay that includes breakfast? I’m not talking about the microwaved sausages and eggs that some places serve. This is cooked food, like omelets, bacon, sausage links, waffles, and country potatoes. What’s better than that?
