Great property. Understanding it’s COVID but some services like full service breakfast would’ve nice to have.

None of the amentities were available because the pool “wasn’t clean enough to swim in” and the don’t notify people ahead of time. We were not compensated for this. There were also stains on our sheets and comforter and needed to request they be changed.

The room was very nicely decorated and the hotel was lovely but it's important to note that (in MY opinion) Hilton Hotels are ALL about making a quick buck and does not particularly care about their guests comfort! Needless, to say they are quite a bit pricey but are refusing to clean rooms due to COVID-19. That is simply ridiculous! This is a reason to CLEAN the rooms!!! They refused to clean the room during our stay. Not to mention that they wanted to charge $19.99 daily for Wi-Fi and you could not even get any extra toiletries without paying for them. I have never stayed in a Hotel that was SO absorbed with squeezing every penny possible out of their guests and will NEVER stay in a Hilton Hotel EVER AGAIN!!!!

Outdoors were disgusting. Trash everywhere! Room had old trash by the beds.

This hotel was large and clean, however very disappointed in customer service. I came to check in at 5:20pm and a room wasn't available. I finally checked in at 8:30pm (no call to let me know my room was ready) and nothing was offered in regards to late check out or a meal voucher or anything to compensate that the room was over 5 hours delayed to check in from the 3pm check in time. Also asked for a late check out and they had already given out all they could that day. Just disappointing for the amount of money spent for 1 night.

Great location! Very comfortable! Very clean! Shulas in the lobby!

Great location! Room spacious and clean with comfortable bed and pillows.

Friendly staff. Nice breakfast. Rooms could be cleaner

Nice hotel across the street fro U of F. Convenient to restaurants, shopping etc.

The accomodations were clean and comfortable. The staff were very pleasant and professional. The only downside was the breakfast menu, which was unexciting and cooked and served in a way that was fairly dull. The eggs bennedict were sloppily presented and the muffin was untoasted. The oatmeal was cooked to exhaustion and unrecognizeability, plus it was not served with milk. The fruit parfait was goupy and noncompetitive with a similar product from a 7 Eleven or a Starbucks. The juice was out of a can or something and the chopped almonds looked as though they'd been out of the freshness packet for a while. For the cost of this food, and the location, you'd expect much, much more. Additionally, the service was very slow. I had a better experience in this same hotel restaurant a year or two ago, but would not risk the capital again for a chance at a similar letdown. I wanted to impress the people I took to breakfast, and it turned into an awkward dissappointment. Sorry, but that's the truth. Hilton, please work on it.

The parking situation is not great. That was the ONLY downside. Otherwise, excellent stay.
