Everything great except the internet wifi

It is a beautiful location, very nice and comfy hotel. The internet connection for Hilton is now handled by ATT-U-verse and that is terrible! I am Hilton Honors member, and after 3 minutes of my 1st login, the system kicked me out, and I never allowed me to login again.

Seriously?!!!

We had made these reservations in advance specifically to reserve a handicap room for my father who is strictly wheelchair bound. Drove 6 hours, showed up to learn our room was already given to another party and we had to be put in a regular room. My father fell out of the bed since it did not have a bar so we had to put him on the floor to sleep. He could not shower since we did not have the wheel-in shower access like we reserved. So we had to give him a "birdbath" He could not reach the sink and had to be held while sitting on the toilet. We were apologized to and offered some lunch vouchers. Really? I would have much rather known my father was going to be safe than had a free sandwich. We could have made a stink about him falling out of bed but we didn't. If you think your room reservations are safe with this hotel think again! Just an awful experience...

Fine hotel. Could be better

Comfortable hotel, spacious rooms, excellent beds. Room had an odd smell. Great gym. Staff was friendly, but should be more on the ball ad this kind of first class hotel.

Glad I chose this Hotel

I'm always nervous about hotels that allow dogs. But the staff was very accepting of my dog and very helpful, courteous. I was alittle nervous bringing him in because the lobby was so ornate, but the hotel made me feel very welcome. It seems there is specific floors for guests with pets, but the room was very clean and we loved the soft bed and those sheets!!! This hotel will definitely stay at top of my list anytime I'm in Gainsville.

Over night business travel

Hotel room was clean and comfortable. We arrived with a late check in, the staff was so nice and helpful we would recommend this hotel to anyone seeking a "worry free stay."

Dining is in hotel, but several casual restaurants are located within a five mile radius of the hotel. As a courtesy service, the hotel offered to drive us to a restaurant.
