4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

our first time at U F, celebrating students 21 birthday. Hotel was situated perfectly . close to 75, across street from campus and near a Publix,
Rooms were very clean, bar downstairs was well staffed and nice at end of long day. Breakfast had much more than the usual fare,

Room Tip: Room 636 had low shower pressure,, but they did send engineer to fix it

Mr. Wagih William, the F&B Director provided exceptional support to our family. We had to arrange a post-memorial service at very short notice. My William worked with us to organize a group of rooms for friends and relatives and a meal for what was meant to be a small group. The memorial service was attended by so many members of the community - and their love and support has been incredible - Mr William had to double the capacity for us on the fly. He and his team were remarkably calm, did not let us worry about a single issue and jumped to the task of providing support while allowing the family the chance to be with each other.

Thank you - and Thank you again for making it so easy for us.

Great room accommodations and excellent customer service! Wagih William, the Food & Beverage Director, and my favorite waitress Denise, goes the extra mile! I always come in to Albert's restaurant for the breakfast buffet and the food is always too notch. Definitely, the best breakfast buffet in Gainesville!

Being a road warrior, I did my research before making a reservation in Gainesville, FL. for a two nt. stay. Location, service and a fitness ctr. are my key criteria. This University Hilton has a great location away from the downtown noise and close to the University area. Several restaurants nearby and a large conference ctr. at the hotel. The other key factor was the fitness ctr. with state of the art equipment and large enough so it is not crowded as so many hotels are in this era. The breakfast buffet included several different options.
I also drove to another hotel in the area to see if was up to the same standards and it was not even close to the Hilton.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quiet in this setting.

Nice hotel, right next to the campus. Location is very good. Staff was cheerful, check-in and out were very quick. I have stayed in many hotels over the years, this one is near the top in value for the money spent.

This was my second stay here for a meeting, and this time was much better. My room was ready on time, had a king bed as promised, room was clean, and the shower was strong and hot. The airport shuttle was ready with no wait both to and from the Hilton, and the driver, Kendrick, was courteous and efficient. The food served at an evening reception, breakfast, lunch and during breaks was very good.
