This is the only hotel I enjoy staying at for business. It provides me everything that I need (clean room, comfortable furniture, internet, work out facility, breakfast, bar, etc.). I highly recommend staying at this hotel.

Stayed here for 5 nights when working the NCAA baseball regional. Rooms are nice and clean and the king bed was very comfortable. Quiet room, I never heard much in the hallway at all. The internet is pricey, but it's good. I was able to stream video without any issue. The breakfast bar downstairs is pretty good, but there are other options nearby with a better bang for your buck (try Bagels Unlimited in the strip mall about 1/4 mile south of the hotel). Very friendly staff who made sure you had a nice stay. Would definitely recommend.

I wanted to take this time to let you know how wonderful it was working with Abdinur Abdi. I needed to make a reservation for a candidate that I was bringing into town a few weeks ago and I had the pleasure of working with Abdinur. He went above and beyond his normal duties and was completely on top of every single request I had (You should know that I had quite a few!).

Abdinur truly exemplified Blue Energy Spirit and Hilton’s Core Values: Hospitality, Integrity, Leadership, Teamwork, Ownership, & Now. Great Hire!


Go Gators!!!

Nice place to stay, came down from Jacksonville to watch NCAA baseball game. This hotel is a great location, close to ball fields, restaurants, and stores. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful

We unexpectedly stayed here for one night. The room was fairly clean, and had nice decorations. The headboards in our rooms were metal with cut out areas, and did not cover the entire wall. There were some weird stains on the wall behind the headboard. Most of the wall is exposed because of the design, so you can easily see imperfections. I was afraid to lay on the headboard/wall because the stain looked like a bodily fluid. The maids should pay a little more attention to cleaning that area. Other than that I slept pretty well. They charge for internet access which is also annoying.

Room Tip: Be prepared to pay for internet.

The restaurant was closed when we came back from our event. We sat in the bar and ordered the homemade chips with onion dip and the chicken quesadillas. Fantastic food! Bar food is often underwhelming - this was great! Also, directly across the street from UF - nice view. Nice pool.

I spent a week for a conference in this Hilton hotel and it was a very enjoyable experience. It is a very practical hotel where you do not need to think about anything and I could focus 100% in the conference. It was very good to have long conversations with colleagues in different places of the hotel.
