Didn’t like having to pay 20 for parking as it was not listed when booking

Convenient Location! Short staffed ,limited breakfast options ! Staff very nice and obliging.

Great location, super nice hotel. Parking is on the 4th floor of the adjacent building so it’s a bit confusing—and expensive ($20/day).

I like the fact of it was modern but I didn’t like the fact of I couldn’t use the pool

Nice hotel very clean but there was no where to throw trash and no microwave

nice staff very clean interesting roof top with pool open quite late

Love the room, hate that there is no lock on yhe bathroom door! Love the shower.

The room was VERY spacious and also very clean. The staff were very friendly (front desk, and valet). The location is awesome, around the corner from Target, Publix, Krispy Kreme and UF.

Lovely, well appointed hotel. The 24/7 music in all the piblic areas was tiresome though.

The overall experience was positive. However, being a newly opened hotel, the staff didn't always seem to be aware of the hotel's policies and benefits that it offers to the customers. Also out shower door leaked whenever we took a shower. I'm sure in the future they would iron out theses kinks.

Overall our stay at this hotel was fine. There are a few points that are difficult not to mention. First and foremost the parking is an expensive pain in the neck. They charge for valet parking but do not offer any self parking. This is due to the location of the hotel, there is nowhere to park other than the parking garage attached to the hotel/condominium complex. The valets were fantastic but requiring this service is a just not appropriate. The second point is the smell in the lobby. I could not identify the odor but it is very unpleasant. Our room did not smell this way but the lobby did and this is the location of the bar, where breakfast is served and an area where you can sit and relax. The last thing also had to do with the lobby The extremely loud music that was being played. It made talking to the staff during check in difficult and in fact just talking to my wife was hard, This is a very modern, nice hotel except for the things I mentioned.
