I attended an event for an organization, and the server was awesome! Her name was Natasha.. she was so warm, welcoming, and accommodating. She made our visit a pleasure! We will be requesting her again for our next event. The food and atmosphere was awesome! - Tracie C.

I have stayed here four times in the last 6 months, and highly recommend it! This hotel far exceeded all my expectations, from the courteous, accommodating front desk staff, to the friendly, congenial wait-staff in the restaurant and lounge. Even the bell-hops, and housekeeping staff couldn't be any nicer!!! The beds are like clouds, the pillows are so fluffy, and... More

Quick 2 night business trip to Gainesville. This was the only hotel recommended by my local contact. Very quiet and well situated for all activities. Well staffed and orderly. Food service was good and the room was well furnished and nice... until the moment I was getting ready for bed. I was preparing for sleep and was going to brush... More

We had an untimely stop in Gainesville FL over this past weekend and needed accommodations. We stopped at two other locations and was directed to Hilton U. A bit apprehensive based on it's name, thinking it's spring break, Final 4 basketball games & students everywhere. We found this property very likeable. The staff was training a new person so being... More

For the last three years I have been staying in Hilton Hotels. But my last experience was just a week ago. The hotel was beautiful, decor lovely. The only thing I was very disappointed about was the making of the beds, we were here for four nights and they never made the beds or change the linens on the third... More

This Hilton property became an oasis for me after a long, difficult business trip. Situated close to I-75 and to Gainesville's city center, the high-rise full-service hotel has amenities that allow the traveler to stay within its boundaries, including the full-service restaurant and bar. My room was beautiful, clean, quiet and extremely well appointed; staff is extraordinarily hospitable; grounds are... More

Service was excellent in general and Internet was fast. Breakfast buffet with good variety (not included, of course). The room did not have a fridge, which is a minus for a Florida hotel. Somehow only 1/4 coffee bags in the room was regular, and after the 1st night that single one that I drank was replaced by another decaf (really... More

I was in Gainesville for a concert at the UF Performing Arts Center. I noticed this Hilton was across the street from the campus (and a short walk to the performing arts center) so I booked a stay here. Being able to walk there and not having to worrying about parking was very appealing to me. It is a pretty... More
