We arrived at 10 pm and were received graciously by the front desk staff. The room was nice, if rather worn (they need to replace the carpet in the room.) Around 1 am the fire alarm went off. Bleary eyed and groggy, we make our way down the four flights of stairs and proceed around the building to the main...

Don't go to the bar, I was charged $11.00 for a HOUSE wine in Gainesville, FL and my husband was charged $13.50 for a Manhattan. We could have gone to Manhattan and been charged less for both! Hotel staff was nice and room was clean.

I stayed at the Hilton a week for surgery and recovery. The management and staff could not have been nicer. My only complaint during this week stay is being able to hear an argument one night at the other side of the connecting door. (The connecting door is not sound proof.)

A pretty small Hilton but perfect for visiting UF. There is a small bar which serves dinner and a restaurant which serves breakfast. Not much to do in the immediate area but mainly used by folks visiting the campus. Book early if you are planning to visit during football season etc!

The rooms cool down quickly (important in hot FL) and the beds are clean and comfortable. Water pressure is acceptable and gets hot quickly enough; great light in the bathroom for making up in the morning. Just go ahead and plan to eat offsite. The food is relatively awful, drinks over priced. There are decent food and drink options nearby...

The event staff was fantastic! They were quickly available, very accommodating, and friendly. The rooms were clean with nice work areas and comfortable beds. However, the absence of a refrigerator and microwave was a strange omission. I expect at least a refrigerator in this class of hotel, if not a microwave, too.

Enough with the dog "friendly" hotels! We were woke up, and have been listening to dogs bark and whine all morning! People are apparently locking dogs in their bathroom. This is absurd and out of control! I have a recording from our room but trip advisor doesn't allow me to post a video.
