We travel to Gainesville several times of year for business but this was our first time staying at the Hilton Garden Inn. The hotel is conveniently located near I-75 but far enough away from the highway so you can't hear noise. The lobby is clean, modern & bright. The staff was very friendly at the front desk. The rooms are large, spacious & clean.
There was a small fridge & a couch in our room. Everything was very clean & tasteful.
There were a few negatives. The AC units in the rooms are very noisy. Everytime it turned on, I woke up. There was a lot of light in the room from the microwave, clocks etc. when all the lights were turned off. I did not find the bed or pillows comfortable but that's a personal preference.
About 10:45pm, the fire alarms went off for about 5 minutes and it was just a false alarm. The sound was very piercing & our ears are still ringing.
Overall, the Hilton Garden Inn offers a great value for both price, location & cleanliness.
