“Best Gainsville hotel we have stayed at.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2009

This is a great hotel in a perfect location. Many restaurants and nightlife in walking distance. The hotel is new, the room was large. The shower was very large by hotel standards. They have figured out most people don't use the hotel tub and there is just a shower but it uses the same space as if there was a tub. Not sure if all rooms are this way so if you have small kids that need a tub you might call first. Being in downtown there are many local restaurants near by that is a nice change from all the chains by I75. It is on the bus line so you could get to UF for a game without having to take a car. This will be our new go to hotel in Gainesville.

I am a federal gov. traveler who is stuck in Gainesville due to snow in the DC area. I can't get back tonight. I called the FedTraveler agency and asked for this hotel. They mistakenly booked me in the Holiday Inn. Eric at the front desk here called the Holiday Inn and straightened it out. Eric is great, and the rest of the staff are quite polite and sincere in their desire to serve guests. I am in room 624 and it is laid out nicely. Simple touches that matter. For instance the desk faces the TV. I can eat, drink and watch TV. It's like a clean man cave. There are a few other things about the layout that are very thoughtful. The hotel is a good value and I highly recommend it.

We have been anxiously anticipating the arrival of your wonderful hotel in the heart of Gainesville!!! Our first visit to stay with you was just after you opened in August. We were so impressed with the level of service that we received during that stay as well as during our stay there this past Thursday evening. Your staff goes out of their way to welcome you. It begins with the person who takes the reservation on the phone (Joanna) to the person who greets you at the front desk (also Joanna) to the woman who operates the breakfast (Marcie) to the cleaning and maintenance people we've encountered in the hallways or the elevators. It is obvious that your staff takes pride in Gainesville's newest "jewel". They seem happy to be a part of it!

We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE being able to park our car for the weekend and WALK to all of our favorite restaurants and bars. It's such a fabulous location!!!

We look forward to another visit VERY soon!!!

I've stayed at a bunch of Gainesville hotels such as Springhill, Hilton Conference Center and the Holiday Inn. This is my favorite to date. Located in downtown Gainesville but close to the UF campus. Brand new, clean and roomy. Everything is new. There are a bunch of good restaurants and bars right outside the door and best of all it gets you away from the madness of the hotels, shops and restaurants of Archer Road.

If you like Hampton, and we do, this is one of the better Hampton Inns I've stayed at. Also, on game day they have a shuttle bus to bring you to campus so you don't need to drive. Go Gators

The Hampton downtown has several pluses. The rooms are spacious, clean and modern. 42" TV's. decent complimentary breakfast and an interesting downtown neighborhood. Negatives would be paid parking next door and limited facilities. We booked a suite and found it to be extremely large (and we visited several others that were not as big). The room was 603 so I'm guessing the 03 stack has the large rooms.
