My husband and I booked a two night stay based on the favorable reviews on Trip Advisor. We reserved well in advance as we were in town to attend our son's commencement. I requested a renovated room with a view of the lake. When we got to our room, it was dated and did not look clean. I wanted to... More

During my stay I felt very comfortable and the staff (Montrail) was very friendly and polite. The gentlemen even helped with my bags when I was struggling. I would recommend everyone to come to this hotel :-)

This was our first stay at the Paramount Plaza Hotel & Suites, and we were so impressed with our accommodations and staff service. Our room was available earlier than the check in time and we were upgraded to a larger and more spacious suite. The Paramount Plaza hotel is close to the University of Florida where both our children are... More

Upon our arrival, we learned that not only was our reservation wrong but our last minute dog sitter has spooked our dog causing her to run off and hide. Sam at the front desk handled the booking error flawlessly and showed genuine concern for our missing senior GSP. Bonnie at the bar was concerned she had poured my wine glass... More

Our room keys deactivated, which happens everywhere I've ever stayed. A young man, by the name of Blake, helped us when he noticed we were locked out of our building during a rain storm. He was friendly and kind. After we spoke to the front desk from my cell phone, he escorted us to our room and gained access to... More

I stayed at your hotel during a very stressful time in our family's life. My husband had a stroke and I had a friend book me at the Comfort Inn near Shands. It was a horrible experience for our family. I knew I could not continue to stay there and was given a list of hotels by Shands. When I... More

Currently being renovated in 2012-13 the Paramount Plaza Hotel & Conference Center offers full service Gainesville hotel lodging at surprisingly affordable rates. Convenient Gainesville Hotel Location The Paramount Plaza is ideally located only minutes from Gainesville's most important and popular attractions and venues, such as the University of Florida, the Butterfly Rain forest, Paynes Prarie State Park, the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, and Shands Teaching Hospital at The University of Florida.
