We went to tour the University of Florida with my two high schoolers. This Hilton allows one to get a sense of the town of Gainesville and still be just a mile or so from UFs Welcome Center. Hotel was clean and we stayed in a two queen studio, which could have accommodated more than the 4 of us.

We stay here for the FEST each year and the staff is always awesome and accommodating, even with the large amount of guests. I'll never stay anywhere else, it is pricey but they make it worth your money with complimentary breakfast, great service and accommodating staff.

I have occasion to work in Gainesville about twice a year and this is my preferred place to stay--particularly if I'm fortunate enough to be able to park on the street overnight. I do find both the cost and inconvenience of the parking garage disappointing.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review! I'm so sorry for all of the inconvenience about the parking situation; I understand it can be disappointing. One of the challenges about having a great location downtown, is that parking can be a challenge. We do appreciate your loyalty in staying with us when you visit Gainesville, and hope... More

I stayed at this hotel for Fest 15. It was the perfect location to chill in between events. I checked in quickly, and there was no hassle at any point in my stay. Bonus points for the fruity water in the lobby.

This hotel has the perfect location to downtown Gainesville. With easy access to restaurants and bars in the area it's a great place for a get away weekend with friends. It's also a clean and well kept hotel. However, please note there is no designated area for hotel guests to self park and traffic becomes difficult to navigate if there... More

Met a friend for dinner and stayed at this beautiful hotel for the evening. We met and had dinner in their bar area. They obliged us by turning on the Steelers game and we enjoyed cocktails as well as their hospitality. We ordered wings and a grilled cheese. They were decent, the grilled cheese was lacking, and they promptly fixed... More

My husband and I recently stayed here after the birth of our son. Our son was dealing with some issues that arose during labor & was admitted to the NICU (and at that point we had no idea when he would be going home). We live a little over an hour away, and desperately wanted to be near our son.... More

Downtown Gainesville is the place to be for great restaurants, entertainment and shopping. You must stay at the Hampton Inn & Suites for convenience, comfort and great customer service. My stay was so enjoyable that I will definitely be back.

Great location. We stayed here for location and it was great to walk to nice restaurants and the Hippodrome. We were able to do all needed on foot. Starbucks was close! A/C unit was intermittently really loud, so ear plugs help! But otherwise all was the normal Hampton experience.
