Forget about reasonable prices and free breakfasts as those days are gone. Welcome to $10/person breakfasts. That's a rip-off after you pay $200/night (including taxes) for a room. I'll be looking elsewhere in the future.

Very clean, quiet, convenient. Large room. Felt new. Fridge in room. Plenty of outlets. Breakfast was not free, even for Marriott elite members. Had to wait for coffee until Bistro opened. They do not provide early. Gym was good, clean. Front desk gave good recommendations for local fare - ask them@!.

We came to Gainesville for a Gators football game and the hotel was in a great location. Short ride to the stadium and plenty to do right around the hotel. The rooms appear to have recently been renovated. It was very clean and the entire hotel was very nice. We will surely stay here again!!

Nice courtyard near a lot of amenities. Many restaurants and close to the downtown area as well as right down the street from the U of F. The Bistro staff is quick and attentive. The lobby is very confortable. The taff is great and helpful. Even though it seems close to the highway, it is very quiet. The rooms are... More

Arrived late Friday night and was greeted by a friendly front desk associate. My elite status was recognized, and I was given a corner room on the third floor (highest floor, as I requested in my reservation). Every time I walk past a member of the staff they always stop and greet me with a smile. The latest check-out I... More

My husband and I stayed at this Courtyard for a weekend of planned bike rides. We got lucky and were given a first floor room and we were able to take our bikes in and out of the sliding glass doors instead of down the hall and through the entire hotel. Everyone we came in contact with were very polite... More

we stayed here during a home game for the gators so of course the rates were double the norm, but that is to be expected, however; the beds were SO uncomfortable it was impossible to sleep! the pillows have to weigh about 10 pounds each and are a little softer than rocks. Don't waste your money on this place! they... More

We stayed at this Marriot location on Saturday Oct 4, 2014, as my family did scuba lessons at the beautiful Devils Den spring in near by Williston,Florida. The Florida Gators football team was out of town at Tennessee, so things were very quite and very pleasant. This Marriot residence was recently renovated and the rooms were very comfortable and extremely... More

this was a 3 night work thing, the hotel was functional in all ways, staff where friendly and couldn't do enough for us. My only issue was the lack of options for breakfast, the 'bistro' was really nothing more than a bar, that sold coffee. all in all I would go there again just don't plan to eat there.
