This property is in downtown Gainesville, close proximity to all essential things, unless you need to go to the University. Across from the Courthouse, great restaurants and historical streets and stores. Room was quite pleasant and decorated nicely. Only complaint about this property is the parking to unload in the front is horrible and it may be likely you must... More

AC so loud you could not hear the TV without blaring. Front desk staff unmotivated to help. Nobody available to help with bags. Valet took about 20 minutes to get the car. Nowhere to sit for four people for breakfast, so had to leave to go to an outside cafe.

This hotel and the staff are wonderful. I recently got married and it is where my wedding guests stayed. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly and responsive. The location is great. It is near a bunch of restaurants and nightlife. If you are going to visit Gainesville, this is the hotel you should stay in!

Just spent a week at this hotel. An excellent experience from front desk to valet to breakfast and gym. Was in town for business. Everything was perfect and especially the very warm staff -- all gracious and accommodating. Nice breakfast bar, clean gym. I was shocked, honestly, but they do an excellent job. Fabulous restaurants/bars within walking distance. An easy... More

Our lives were placed in jeopardy on Sat. June 7, 2014 when I tried to help a bad situation and the hotel staff failed in so many ways. They never moved our room, didn't remove the guests who were clearly drunk and disorderly and most of all and most serious placed a small baby at risk with their drunk parents... More
