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 belong to an organization that regularly has luncheon at this location twice a month and it has always been great but it wasn't until I was responsible for planning a banquet for what ended up being 270 attendees that I fully realized the excellent capabilities of the staff, from Manager, Mark McClain, to the desk staff and the serving...

I was in Gainesville visiting a family member at Shands/VA hospital and called to find out that this very special hotel had a discounted rate for families visiting relatives there. Travis was friendly and professional the very first phone call, and on the second call he remembered me and kindly gave directions a second time. The room was clean,comfortable and... More

Got a great room overlooking the lake. It was entertaining watching the turtles and alligators. Had a snack in the restaurant, husband had a cobb salad and I had the crab cakes, not lump, but all crab. Couldn't beat the price, total $14.00. Will stay here again if we have an early flight.

On a recent trip to Gainesville, my husband and I stayed at this hotel. We absentmindedly left our headlights on overnight and it drained our battery.

This is first time I ever went to the paramount plaza. Overall I was very satisfied by the clean rooms and the price. I especially liked the food they provided. The chef named Daniel there is amazing!

This facility has even been a Hilton, and the rooms are enormous, the pool is delicious, and overlooks a classic Florida lake with moss-covered trees at the edge. A good exercise room, and a patio for every room. I've visited Gainesville many times, and always try to stay there. When there's not a convention, rates are very reasonable. Big thanks... More

Bordered by the picturesque Bivens Arm Lake Nature Preserve, the hotel is Gainesville's only lakefront hotel, offering a taste of Florida the way it used to be. 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. The hotel is a short drive North of historic Micanopy and antique shopping, and just a few miles from downtown Gainesville. Each of our 197 large NON-SMOKING, comfortable guest rooms and suites are designed to meet your Gainesville accommodation needs.
