Very clean and comfortable. Staffers are friendly and helpful. Conveniently located for Shands, and they provide a free shuttle there. Great restaurant in the hotel with a full bar.

Large and comfortable rooms. Pretty good rates, and very close to University of Florida, which makes it convenient for conferences. Breakfast is included, but it is not that great. Very friendly staff. There is WiFi, but it is a bit slow. They have a nice outdoor pool as well as a small fitness room with a couple of machines.
