I have stayed at the Reitz Union for the past few years 8-10 times to visit my daughter who tranferred to UF her JR year. I have not wrote a review because it is tough to get a room as is (lol)
As a hospitality executive I will say the hotel is well managed and staffed with helpful, fun, hospitlity students who take great pride in the job they do. The hotel manager is a well established CHA and is never far from the desk and seems to enjoy the teaching aspect of hospitlity to the students.
In my ten or so stays, my room has always been clean and well maintained. The breakfast is always on time and very consistant....the coffee is good and always fresh!
The views are great and the rooms compare to a nice Holiday Inn or Courtyard but for a on-campus hotel (location, location, location) the rates are a steal....$99.00 includes parking and breakfast and the chance to experience the university first hand. I assume that all revenue produced from the hotel is put back into the operating budget for the student union which benifits the students and helps off set some of the expenses of the Reitz Union by the university....another good reason for gators to support the hotel!
Go Gators and good job UF!
