Excellent in every way. Had to stay for a few days after my mother had surgery at Shands. The room service dining was excellent for my mother who was to weak to leave the building. Quiet so she could rest. Very helpful staff. I highly recommend this hotel.

Great room accommodations and excellent customer service! Wagih William, the Food & Beverage Director, and my favorite waitress Denise, goes the extra mile!

Nice hotel, right next to the campus. Location is very good. Staff was cheerful, check-in and out were very quick. I have stayed in many hotels over the years, this one is near the top in value for the money spent.
