Fantastic hotel! We stayed one night before our tour of UF. Clean, comfortable and modern. We enjoyed the Peleton bikes!

Would of been nice to have a pool there

Very clean, staff courteous

Proximity to campus. Nice clean and modern property.

Beautiful rooms, wonderful staff and great on site restaurant.

Great light, large glass windows (that don't open), comfy bed, modern clean finish, large nice shower, good lighting. Incredibly friendly and high morale staff, nice snack station, nice restaurant outdoor seating, strong wifi, good location, pretty great little/tiny gym. - Studio style unit has no laptop friendly workspace. No speaker except the nice TV, and nice TV has a very limited selection of apps (no spotify, no casting support). Due to covid there was no housekeeping during my stay: understandable. Tiny trash cans and no do-it-yourself trash removal solution offered: less understandable. Valet only parking was a mild inconvenience, though the staff were great.

This is a brand new hotel. They were very accommodating. The food and drinks were very good. Staff is very friendly. Would stay there again!!

Great proximity to the UF campus and hospital. It's a modern, clean hotel!

Loved the room and the overall cleanliness/feel of the hotel. Location is outstanding. The bar area is terrific with very nice TVs. 2 things to improve upon: valet parking is just kind of a pain, even though the valet people were trying their hardest. Would be much easier just to walk to your car and not have to wait to get in/out of the property. Also, the bar staff should be willing to work later. On a Saturday night, the bar closed very early and they had to turn customers away - bartender made it very clear she wanted to get home.

The building and hotel room were very modern. The room layout allowed for different zones, sleeping, relaxing and bathing. The cast in place concrete construction kept the sound from above and below to zero. Just a cool hotel.

I loved the style of the room, everything was clean and taken care of. The staff was great and with every problem resolved in a speedy manner.
