Front desk often did not relay... More

We've stayed here a couple of times. Each time we enjoyed exploring the downtown area both on foot and on bicycles. Several historic buildings located near by and several very good restaurants. Accommodations are very comfortable and the staff very accommodating.

We had business in downtown Gainesville and the location of this Hotel was outstanding. It is within walking distance of good restaurants and most things one might need. Staff was excellent to us and made things easy.

We were in Gainesville for a quick overnight visit with family. We were pleased with our room and with the services provided. The staff, especially the valet parking attendant, were courteous and friendly. I would definitely recommend using the valet parking. The location is great. Although we ate dinner in a different part of town, there were multiple choices within... More

This was a family trip to Gainesville. The staff was excellent. The rooms were very comfortable. Great location and within walking distance to most of our destinations. The continental breakfast was very good. Only one elevator working but no long waits.

Hotel is right in the heart of downtown and close to several restaurants and things to do. Security on site for late arrivals which is good since the parking is either along downtown or the parking garage behind the hotel.

Did a two stay for a business meeting. The location is convenient in downtown Gainesville. The hotel was clean and the room comfortable. A typical (eggs, fruit, cereal, bread, muffins, etc.) hot breakfast was free in the morning. I would recommend this hotel.
