Hotel was where conference was being hosted. Nice facility, very convenient to the University and associated activities. The facility was well cared for but you could tell it is also well used. Comfortable and effective.

Just stayed here for a college tour. The staff at check in could care less when we checked in. I am a Hilton honors member and was greeted coldly and business like. In the morning, I needed some assistance and the new desk staff was very helpful and professional. The breakfast was the standard buffet, but was subpar on the...

The lobby area of the hotel is very nice and open. The hotel is located in a great area, across the street from UF. You can walk to the lacrosse/soccer fields and other UF buildings in the area. There is an art museum and nature trail within walking distance. The staff and employees are very friendly and helpful. They have...

I found this place to be ideal in terms of location. The lobby is pretty too. We ate a late dinner in the bar area and found that to be good despite the French fries being cold. (They did bring us new one's). I worked out in the fitness center this morning and that was adequate as well. The only...

This is definitely one of the nicest hotels in Gainesville. I stayed in a King room after my wedding and was pleased with the accommodations. Our stay also included breakfast, which was very good. On the pricier end for a stay in Gainesville, but it's a very nice hotel.

We were surprised not to be welcomed to this Hilton as we are at all other Hilton properties. We actually felt as though we were imposing on the front desk clerk just by being there. We were upgraded to a larger room, which was very nice. It was clean and well stocked. There was one major problem causing us to...
