Great place. Simple yet elegant. Love the common areas, decor and fantastic staff.

Very Nice hotel.. clean and staff are courteous. Close to UF and well situated.

Big room with plenty of space for pack and play and counter space for all our stuff.

Very clean and modern, easy access to food and campus nearby.

Conveniently located. Great lobby with pool, games, cafe and bar. Rooms are spacious.

The lobby is great. I love the room layout and amenities. The only complaint is that there is insufficient sound damping between floors so every step someone takes on the floor above sounds like they are stomping their feet with army boots on a wood floor.

Nice hotel convenient to Shands and shopping centers

I reserved a room with two beds for 4 adults. We called to confirm early check in for a game day weekend upon booking in September (it is October). I arrived at the hotel at 10am and the room was not available, I called at 11am, 12, 1 and 2pm and rooms were still not available. But I was still promised a room with two double beds we had paid for. We attended the football game and called again at 6pm to confirm late check in and two double beds as we wanted to grab dinner. However when we arrived at the hotel, there was only a room with a king bed available and many others in the lobby without a room. 4 adults cannot sleep in on bed! Two of us had to find another hotel on our own l to stay at that night. I would like a refund!

The hotel had only been open for 6 days when we arrived. While there are a few kinks to work out, the staff tried very hard and the stay was enjoyable.

Great new modern hotel! The staff was friendly and competent...highly recommend.
