UF Hilton is our hotel of choice every time we visit Gainesvile. It's proximity to the campus is such a time saver. Recently stayed at the hotel during UF Preview Days and enjoyed a wonderful breakfast in the hotel restaurant, Albert's. Front desk staff were wonderful and helped make our stay so pleasant.

Julia at the front desk was extremely helpful and informative. We were here for Freshman orientation for UF and as it turns out Julia is a student at UF herself, so she was able to answer any questions we had and gave tips for making the transition into college more pleasurable and less stressful. However, housekeeping didn't clean our room on one of the days we stayed there; beds weren't made and garbage wasn't taken out. Also, the underside of the bathroom seat had fecal matter on it the night we checked in, it obviously wasn't cleaned properly if at all. The second day we came back to the room the bathroom trash wasn't emptied and the bath mat was missing.

The staff was very accommodating in all areas from the maintenance of the room, the eating facilities, making things right; changed food order without any problem; accommodations to and from the hospital; to the airport; all of these things were very helpful during my stay at the hotel.

I travel to Gainesville to work at the UF Shands Cancer Center and have always stayed at this Hilton. Time after time they have taken great care of me. The staff is very friendly. They have a great fitness center/pool. They are close to work/the University. Two Bits and Albert's are both good places to eat at. I highly recommend this hotel for when you travel here.

We were given a room on the 6th floor. Immediately we noticed a musty smell and what we thought were fleas. This hotel allows pets so we believed our bites were from fleas. Upon checking out and arriving home, we called our pest control company who handles our lawn and fire ant prevention. They confirmed the little bugs in our suitcases and our bites were indeed bedbugs. Our technician stated it definitely came from the hilton seeing that our suitcases our kept in our hot attic storage. He stated the bugs die in extreme heat. Also we hadn't used the suitcases for over a year so the bugs would have died. They were picked up from the hotel!!!! After washing all of our belongings 3x in hit water and throwing away our expensive Louise Vuitton luggage, I made a call to the hotel and they did not care! I also am now seeing several reviews from others with the same bedbug experience. Yuck!! Save your money and your health. Stay away from the hilton at UF.

My experience holding a meeting at the UF Hilton was superb. The staff went out of their way to accommodate, the facility was fully equipped, and the location was great. When we arrived, the board meeting room was set up with mints, waters, notepads, and pens--such a nice touch. I interacted with representatives from the Event Services and HR departments, both of whom had excellent customer service skills. There are dining facilities in the hotel, but the hotel is in very close proximity to tons of other restaurants. I highly recommend the UF Hilton to anyone looking to hold a meeting or conference.
