“Excellent hotel and restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

The UF Hilton is an excellent hotel; clean, convenient and the staff is wonderful. William, the director of food service is out standing. He works the restaurant floor like a pro; greeting individuals by name and with a huge smile. I highly recommend The UF Hilton. Be sure to say hello to William (the guy networking the restaurant crowd).

I'm writing this review on my second stay at the hotel, as my daughter is starting her Freshman year her at UF. I will be staying her more in the future I predict. It is a very nice hotel, and although convenient to the UF campus, with it's own restaurant that is very good, Hilton also has a Hampton Inn & Suites over in the Historic Gainesville area where you can walk to several bars and restaurants AND a Starbucks! That hotel was sold out, so I stayed her at the Hilton Confernece Cetner again, but very pleased with the hotel and service. The staff is VERY friendly, the have room service (yeah!!), and the rooms are very clean. The lobby is very welcoming, great front desk staff, and the restaurant is good, the room service is quick and very good as well. Downside: The rooms are a little small, or maybe too full of furniture, a little hard to move around with mother and daughter sharing the room.

Kids running up and down the hallways, mold in the shower, and please do not order food late in the evening, you may get left overs from the day before or if you are lucky from breakfast that day.

The staff is professional and friendly, beds are fairly comfortable, however for a Hilton to have these basic issues, I will try the Garden Inn the next time

Waghu and Denise and all the restaurant staff are so friendly and just amazing. The service is superior to any Hilton property I stay, and I am a Diamond Member of Hilton. They always make me feel at home and take super care of me. Hats off to the staff. If you are looking a a great place to stay when in Gainesville, FL, no doubt about it....Hilton University of Florida is the place.

Room Tip: All rooms are very good.

The staff extended both courtesy and kindness to our entire family during a visit to Gainesville this past month. A special thank you to Mr. Williams, Darcy, Denise and John the omelet man. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again.

The headline is very accurate! The staff was pleasant. The hotel was attractive on the outside and in the lobby. There was water in the hallway carpets from leaks in either the roof or the ac units. I tried to sleep in my bed, but my back was hurting. I went to the lobby and i left my mom sleeping in the room, She can sleep anywhere! The other room was just as bad!

Great place to stay. My favorite spot is the beautiful pool. Cool and relaxing! Everyone at this HIlton makes you feel right at home. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable. 2-Bits Lounge serves the best Turkey Burger around and has a wonderful selection of adult beverages. If you are looking for a more formal place to dine, this hotel is the home of Albert's Restaurant. There is always plenty to do around Gainesville from museums, gorgeous natural attractions or visiting the awesome University of Florida Campus. I am sure that your stay at the Hilton University of Florida will be amazing from check-in to check-out.

Room Tip: Ask to be away from elevators.
