This hotel is located in the heart of Gainesville. It is surrounded by plenty of nightlife, all within walking distance. There is truly something for everyone; from live theater to sidewalk cafes. The staff is friendly and very welcoming. Our room was an oasis. It was clean, comfortable, and quiet. I slept like a baby on the firm mattress. I am a repeat customer and will remain so.

My daughter got married in June, and chose this hotel because of it's proximity to her reception site, The Wooly, and because it's in the heart of downtown G'ville. The entire staff was so accommodating - from upper mgmt. to the front desk personnel to the valets. Couldn't have chosen a better hotel. Great restaurants, clubs and entertainment all around you within walking distance. Plenty of night life without the drive, which I loved! Breakfast (very decent one at that) is not in the busy lobby area like other Hamptons, but on the 2nd floor by itself, which I also liked.
Rooms were nice and clean, and the beds fantastic! Pool is very small, but has an adjustment for current to allow you to swim laps in place, and the exercise equipment is adequate. I'll be staying here anytime I'm back in the area!

Room Tip: corner suites are tucked away from main traffic, and are quieter, while still being close to the stairs

This property is in downtown Gainesville, close proximity to all essential things, unless you need to go to the University. Across from the Courthouse, great restaurants and historical streets and stores. Room was quite pleasant and decorated nicely.

Only complaint about this property is the parking to unload in the front is horrible and it may be likely you must wait for someone to move their vehicle to unload. Valet parking is only $12.00 and well worth it to keep the car in a safe area.

The pool is really, really tiny. However, the hotel didn't have much choice as the available ground space is obviously limited. It is a salt water pool and it was very comfortable during our stay.

Front desk staff were friendly but no one was in uniform other than valet service.

AC so loud you could not hear the TV without blaring. Front desk staff unmotivated to help. Nobody available to help with bags. Valet took about 20 minutes to get the car. Nowhere to sit for four people for breakfast, so had to leave to go to an outside cafe.
