As usual, the Hampton Inn & Suites lived up to their standards. I had requested a quiet room on a higher floor which we received. Room 306 was at the far end of the corridor so that we had no foot traffic/elevator noise at all. The room overlooks the street but was very quiet. Very comfortable bed and well appointed...

With the exception of the disappointing breakfast, this is an excellent hotel. The service, the bedding, room size, function, Internet, quiet, temperature, valet, location - all are excellent and it is a great place in Gainesville. You have to eat breakfast elsewhere.

I was surprised that they charge $14a day for valet parking. Outside of NYC where I live and don't stay in hotels, I've never seen a hotel charging for parking. That really turned me off. The breakfast was mediocre, only healthy items are fresh fruit and oatmeal.Otherwise, there's white bread, unhealthy waffles, preservative jams, syrup with preservatives, white flour muffins....

Love the location of this hotel! It is perfect for fun dinners with family and close to University of Florida. The complimentary breakfast was very nice and the food was delicious. There were also many choices of breakfast items.

As long as you are okay with the front desk representative putting you in a room valued less than what you paid for and more importantly charging both credit cards on file 3 times for 2 rooms thus putting our two night stay at over $1000...enjoy your stay. I however did not and I have more important things to do...

Great experience, service, and stay. Staff was extremely courteous. Room was was comfortable. As always the bed linens and pillows made my sleep restful. Once my car was parked in the garage, I was able to walk wherever I needed to go. Perfect location.

I have several wonderful experiences staying at the Hampton Downtown. From the Valet to the Front Desk staff everyone is so helpful and kind. The King Suites are large well appointed and super clean. There are so many good restaurant and bar choices within easy walking distance. For me this is the perfect home base for my stays in Gainesville....

This hotel was great for a 3 night stay. It is well located among a few restaurants and shops...and not too close to the SWAMP! Hotel seems fairly new. The sales team, Valet guys and cleaning staff were very friendly - the Front Desk people were not. But overall a good place and I would stay there again!
