Just wanted to give credit to where it is due. Our stay was fantastic at the University of Florida Hilton Conference Center. Filip the front desk manager and the rest of his staff could not treat my family and myself any better. We had an issue that was unrelated with the hotel, and they handled it with top quality professionalism.... More

The rooms were clean and quiet, but no refrigerators which we would have liked since we stayed 2 nights and wanted... More

Had to wait for room as the ADA was inspecting rooms. The manager greatly apolized and offered us beverages and lunch. Other than that issue, the Hotel was good, clean. Will go back again, in fact, we did the following weekend.

Hotel is old and showing it. The staff is good but very short handed. The lunch and dinner menu and food is awful. Breakfast was good. Things in the room were rusted. TV did not play well. We were there because my husband had several tests at Shand and the driver let us off at the wrong restaurant one night.... More

The extremely bad water pressure in the shower and the tub was so low that we could not use them. Low water pressure stopped our whole stay from being excellent. Otherwise we had a wonderful stay. The Gift shop prices were excellent.

We bring in speakers from all around the USA to give presentations to our staff and we use this hotel because of its proximity and usually phenomenal accommodations. This last stay was atrocious. I made the reservations a couple of weeks before the stay and when we arrived at the hotel we were informed that the room had been bumped.... More

This hotel was great. I've never stayed in a Hilton before, but I would definitely come back to this hotel. It is clean, the service is amazing and everyone working here is super friendly. Filip was an associate here and he really made me feel welcome. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to my friends!
