Dear Robert H,
Thank you very much for your feedback about your stay. We do have a very convenient location to Shands, UF and "The Swamp". You are correct we do welcome both sides during all events, from Volleyball to Soccer, and Football alike.
We look forward to seeing you again soon on your next trip to Gainesville.

Warm Regards,
Tom MacDonald

Conveniently located to campus with shuttle transportation to the stadium right out the front door. Staff were friendly and efficiently even to the opposing team fans. Breakfast was excellent. Will definitely book this hotel again.

Great location and excellent staff. I visited for a University of Florida football weekend so the price was much higher than the typical rate. But the convenience due to location and transportation to and from the game made it an excellent experience.

If you're coming to Gainesville to visit UF, this is a viable choice with a convenient location. However, the hotel needs some general renovations. Staff is friendly & helpful but front desk takes forever to answer! Limited rooms with king beds, so I was stuck with 2 doubles and there's only one of me!

We have been staying at the Hilton Gainesville for the last 10 years. It is our favorite hotel in Gainesville and we have always been happy with the staff, service and amenities. This past weekend we noticed and commented that the staff seemed to be even more friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was very festive as it was a "game" weekend. We were impressed with all of the employees but especially would like to applaud Wagih William, the Food and Beverage Director. We highly recommend this hotel.

Not happy with the selections on the dinner and lunch menu. Enjoyed the breakfast buffet, price was about $5.00 too steep. The Lunch buffet was too steep for salad and soup.Not happy with the selections on the dinner and lunch menu. Enjoyed the breakfast buffet, price was about $5.00 too steep.
