Great room.clean.great service

It is amazing view one that I never seen before I feel like I was in a big Apple

The hotel was right on campus and was a quick driving distance to the stadium and the O'Connell Center.

Very well done

We liked everything. Will stay there again.

Clean, fresh room and was an enjoyable stay.

The only downside was very noisy street

Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Property was very clean and modern. I will definitely stay there again.

I liked: The equipment in the gymnasium. It was excellent. The rooms glass windows with view and light. The healthy snacks in the store. It would had been nice to have more options in the breakfast menu. I am not pancake or waffle person but my husband is.

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!
