I was here for a business trip. This is a clean convenient place to stay. The rooms are a little outdated. It is located in a busy area so it's hard to get in and out. Pool was nice. Lots of road noise.

Thank you for the review! I apologize you found the rooms outdated, they're only about 6 months old so it's good to know they aren't actually old. I'm very happy to hear you were able to enjoy the pool and found our spot clean and convenient. We can't wait to see you on your next trip to Gainesville! Sincerely, Mayan...

We spent a night at the DoubleTree on our way farther south in Florida. It has convenient access to the interstate. The rooms were exceptionally clean but quite small. Indeed, I would say that they were the smallest rooms we have ever experienced at a DoubleTree. The staff was very friendly. Traffic in the area is quite heavy. You can...

Our stay was quick yet very pleasant. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The location is directly adjacent to a shopping center so you can easily walk to Target, Publix, McDonalds, etc. The lobby and rooms are fresh and modern and very clean. The open air bar lobby area is refreshing for those visiting Florida. The only downfall was...

Nice hotel. Clean, modern and absolutely no complaints. Very appreciative of the young lady at the desk (I think Maya was her name) helped sort out a mess with Expedia...very patient, polite and competent. So my experience here was great!

Imagine coming back to your room about 11PM after a wonderful dinner and visit with friends that we had not seen for many years - and walking down the hall, close to our Room 369/NQR and finding a live snake about 4 feet long raising it's head, trying to come and meet us?

Room 224, across from the bar, overlooking the inner courtyard. Smaller room, comfortable Double Tree amenities; clean. Older property well maintained, courteous and friendly staff. We enjoyed the bar and room service. Great stop for a reasonable price.

This is a wonderful hotel. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and well organized. The common/social areas were fantastic and really great for families. My only complaint would be the balconies. We specifically like balcony rooms because it gives us extra space. If the kids need to got to bed, mom and dad can sit...

This Doubletree impressed me with nicely appointed room...and bathroom. Just the sight of the room shouts relaxation and comfort! The location is near restaurants (some of which are within walking distance) and within a few miles from the mall. The only issue I had was when the cleaning staff opened our room door without knocking.
