I didn't stay here but was here often as a family member stayed here, and I will stay here next time! The location is great for access to downtown and walking to dining options. The staff was very courteous and helpful and the hotel itself was renovated and pretty darn hip! I was impressed. Can't go wrong here. True, the parking garage is adjacent but you don't have to walk; the staff will escort you or take you around, or go get your car for you. Thumbs up!

Again Hilton has the best hotel chain with all the perks. This is a very good hotel. Rooms and breakfast was way above average. We stayed four days 8/12-8/16. I think the price is a little high with the tax included. Plus the main drawback for me was the parking garage and you have to pay, which it clearly states on the their website. I think paying this much for a room it should include parking. Since we stayed for 4 days we had a lot of luggage and the staff saw us struggle but did NOT offer any help. We did park outside the front door which is nice, but I would gladly used some help, and I would have given them a nice tip. I know your the only game in town, but customers do pay the bills.

We had an excellent stay at the new Hampton Inn and Suites in downtown Gainesville. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We stayed during a football game last year, and had a great time. The staff had wonderful suggestions, and offered complimentary rides to mid-town. Not having to worry about transportation to and from the game was such a relief. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The breakfast in the morning was good, got us ready for a long day. We will definitely be staying here again for future Gator games. Great value for money!

We recently had the pleasure of staying 2 nights at this beautifully appointed Hampton Inn. There is no doubt that someone took great pride designing this hotel's interior. The only way I can describe it is simply elegant, comfortable and worth every penny. A great place to be if you are a Gator fan! The entire staff was friendly. They greeted us wholeheartedly each time we walked into the lobby. I imagine they get their down home kindness fom their manager. Miss Shelia was so sweet and gave me good information about area restaurants.

The room was very comfortable and we slept soundly!

The downtown area was bustling and we thoroughly enjoyed strolling around after our dinner.

We had to pay for parking but it was great being able to park so close to the hotel.

We look forward to future stays when I visit my daughter. Gooooooo Gators.

Our family of four stayed for one night in a double queen room while visiting Gainesville for a UF campus tour. The hotel and our room were exceptionally clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The beds and pillows were VERY comfortable; the bathroom was bright and roomy with a spacious vanity which was perfect for our two teenage daughters and all of their toiletries; good water pressure in the shower; the closet door doubled as an enormous full-length mirror (nice bonus); the room had high, visible electrical outlets which made charging our laptops and phones a breeze - no need to hunt under the desk or behind the nightstand. Free Wi-Fi and the large flat screen TV were also nice. Our room was located on the second floor, conveniently right down the hall from the hotel's free continental breakfast area, and the hotel itself is within short walking distance to several restaurants. Overall, it was a great stay for an affordable price. We will definitely choose this hotel on our next visit to Gainesville.

Spent two nights at this hotel while visiting University of Florida (GO GATORS) with our son. The location is excellent. Being able to walk to a variety of restaurants and shops is great. The hotel is safe and secure. We found the room and the rest of the hotel to be extremely clean. The breakfast was very good offering some healthy options. We have stayed at other locations in the area and this is by far the best for service and location. We will always choose this hotel when visiting Gainesville.
