This is a review of the hotel’s Covey Restaurant. Came for lunch and had a great experience with super service and wonderful lunch. Dinner was a different experience. The chicken dinner was undercooked. The expeditor was screaming orders to the kitchen so loud that it disturbed the entire restaurant. These are easy fixes for a place that we will frequent often.

Stayed here on our way to southwest Florida. I wish our stay did not have to end. Superior at all levels. Very clean. The windows were floor to ceiling. So very pretty. I think it had a Scandinavian design. And then such a comfortable time at the on-site restaurant with the best food. You won’t be disappointed. Scale of 10 meaning the best.

Finally, a beautiful place to stay in Gainesville! There’s nothing comparable in the area. Everything is new, modern and clean. The staff was more than attentive. They went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant one! From the welcoming valet, to Jodi at the front desk, and the chef making my daughter’s favorite breakfast, it was a wonderful stay all around. PS: The restaurant and cocktails were fantastic. We will definitely be back!

Hotel is ok, but supervisor Jamirious is mean, and difficult person. Checked in was stressful with Jamirious. Checking out was worse. We left hotel, after staying five nights uncomfortable. There are a lot of new hotels in Gainesville. Maybe stay at different one, and save yourself unneeded stress.

Came to Gainesville for my son’s 18th Bday and to tour the campus as a Gator-to-be. Hotel is super clean! And slick. Love the layout. Resturaunt and bar is above what you’d expect. Staff is super attentive. Food is delicious. A very vocal thanks to Tyler. He was awesome helping make the reservations. And then to show up and be surprised by balloons and gifts for my son....heartwarming and thoughtful. We will make it a point to stay here as we visit in the future. Highly recommend!
