The Paramount Plaza Hotel and Suites in Gainesville, Florida, gets my highest recommendation. In fact, I make it a point to travel to Gainesville (about a 6 hour drive from my home in Georgia) about twice per year just to spend a few days staying at the Paramount Plaza! I first visited Gainesville in 2009 on work-related business and made... More

I'm glad others have had good experiences, but sadly this was not the case with us. The building is clearly quite old and in need of updates and repairs. Minor mistakes I understand and can accept (they left two roll away beds in the room instead of one). But to be on hold for over five minutes waiting for the... More

I had to make a sudden trip to Gainesville to Shands Hospital for a sick family member and I needed a hotel for the night. I checked reviews on the available hotels close to the hospital and I was very discouraged by them. Then I found the Paramount Plaza and took a chance. Glad I did!! It was very reasonably... More

This hotel is perfect. The room was spacious, spotless, and a small balcony overlooking a little lake surrounded with moss draped live oaks. The courtyard along the lake has a fire pit and benches. The bar/restaurant was great. I have never said that about a hotel before. It smelled like my mom's kitchen and had a simple, affordable delicious supper... More

I am originally from Gainesville , Florida and this hotel used to be the cream of the crop and still is! First and foremost: My Girlfriend and I arrived 5 hours before check in and were told if we came back within an hour that we would be able to check in early! (I actually called beforehand and was told... More

Had our Christmas dinner here again this year. Mark McClain and his staff are wonderful. They treated us far better then expected. We will be holding our dinner here again next year if they will has us. Several of us stayed in the hotel the night of the dinner and rooms are clean and neat. Food at our party was... More

Staying at Paramount was not a planned thing when coming to Florida, but it has been an awesome place to stay and i highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area. The staff is very welcoming and friendly from the front desk, restaurant staff, housekeeping and the maintenance end. As soon as we came here we were... More

We have been staying at the Paramount for the past four years every time we are in Gainesville. Our family enjoys staying away from the interstate, and seeing more of the real Florida setting. Our family always looks forward to staying here. This hotel is on a fabulous piece of property. The lake views are fantastic! The balconies look over... More

I attended the annual FSU/UF Rivalry Party & from the moment I checked in, my stay was SIMPLY PHENOMENAL! The staff was attentive, very caring. My suite was impeccable; spacious & cleaned to perfection. The balcony off my suite was a wonderful feature that provided a much needed & welcoming relaxation area. During the party; the food, service by the... More

Scary and misrepresented! I booked this hotel since the 3 star Hilton we usually stay in was unavailable, as were most hotels for Homecoming Weekend. However, as we were driving toward the hotel, I knew this was not going to be a good situation. We were in a seedy part of town, and when we arrived at the hotel, there... More
