I travel to Gainesville to work at the UF Shands Cancer Center and have always stayed at this Hilton. Time after time they have taken great care of me. The staff is very friendly. They have a great fitness center/pool. They are close to work/the University. Two Bits and Albert's are both good places to eat at. I highly recommend... More

We were given a room on the 6th floor. Immediately we noticed a musty smell and what we thought were fleas. This hotel allows pets so we believed our bites were from fleas. Upon checking out and arriving home, we called our pest control company who handles our lawn and fire ant prevention. They confirmed the little bugs in our... More

My experience holding a meeting at the UF Hilton was superb. The staff went out of their way to accommodate, the facility was fully equipped, and the location was great. When we arrived, the board meeting room was set up with mints, waters, notepads, and pens--such a nice touch. I interacted with representatives from the Event Services and HR departments,... More

Very good service! Got to town earlier than expected. I contacted the hotel, and the room was available so I was able to check in early. It's located in the perfect area. Needed to be close to the University, and it was walking distance away. It's close to stores, gas, shopping centers and lots of good restaurants. Clean, comfortable beds,... More

Hilton continues to give great service every time we stay in there hotels. Front desk was fast,efficient and attentive. I do think the hotel itself could use some TLC and updating but than that, it's a nice place to stay.

The front desk staff was friendly, check-in was smooth. We arrived the day before our UF tour with a list of questions, each inquiry was kindly and efficiently answered (re: the local area, where to eat, how to travel, etc.) Our room was located on the 6th floor facing the front, clean and quiet overnight. Our server at breakfast was... More

I don't think I've ever stayed in a hotel where the staff was so genuinely happy, friendly, and made an effort to really meet you. I stayed here while I took my finals for a UF distance education masters program. They have a shuttle included that will get you to/from the airport and campus, which was great so that I... More

The front desk had a great staff. The lady that helped us was named Marlia Bagley and she was amazing!! She gave us some good deals. I've enjoyed my stay and would come back to this exact hotel whenever I'm in town. Thanks
