My colleague and I stayed here while visiting UF on business. Front of house staff were very helpful and we received a discount voucher for dining within the union. The room had a balcony meaning you could make the most of what the sunshine state does best. Room very clean and offered a nice variety of guest supplies. The complimentary... More

I have stayed many times at the Reitz Union Hotel but this was the first time in a suite. (room 620). For $119 the extra space and wrap around balcony was well worth the upgrade. All other rooms were booked and I really think I will pay the additional fee on my next visit for the value recieved. The Union... More

Nothing more convenient than staying here for a Campus visit. Other than that, no real reason to stay in this older hotel located in the middle of the student union building. Parking and access to the actual hotel area are both kind of annoying and convoluted. I was there on a special seminar rate but regular rate is a bit... More

We loved the following things: - location on the campus! - very helpful and friendly staff - clean and quite spacious - small alligators in a lake just behind the hotel we would love: - more restaurants/coffee shops that are open in the morning during weekends. we understand that students on campus sleep in and do not need coffee shops...

I was so happy with my first visit to the University of Florida greatly because of my hotel selection. The on campus hotel was outstanding in its location, comfort, and hospitality. The front desk clerks were most helpful upon check-in and throughout my stay. I was directed to sites and restaurants with enthusiasm. The student employees were anxious to be... More

Since this was my first trip in a while without my hubby as the navigator, I was a little nervous about finding my way around, parking, all the little things that make traveling stressful. Staying here at the Reitz Union in the middle of campus could not have been a better decision! The activities for my daughter were mostly in... More

The location was perfect and it was convenient to have places to eat in the building. I was there for my finals so I needed everything to be close at hand. The staff was wonderful. They provide a coffee maker in the room and I was cramming and needed more coffee and they came right up with several packs. The... More

We just recently stayed at the Reitz union hotel while up for the freshman preview orientation. As the two day orientation took place in the Reitz union, the hotel could not have been more convenient to us, as we didn't have to worry about travel or parking. The rooms are clean, but very underwhelming as a few other reviewers have... More

I have stayed at the Reitz Union for the past few years 8-10 times to visit my daughter who tranferred to UF her JR year. I have not wrote a review because it is tough to get a room as is (lol) As a hospitality executive I will say the hotel is well managed and staffed with helpful, fun, hospitlity... More

I had been wanting to try the Union hotel for years since graduating UF. I was pleasantly surprised that it was nicely decorated, comfortable, and offered a great view of the north side of the campus. The room was somewhat spartan for the price paid since it included a king bed, refrigerator, desk, and television console. It would be nice... More
