Reviewed yesterday NEW

We booked the room 2 months out and specifically stated we were tax exempt. They charged us tax and refuse to take it off. The corporate staff is extremely rude and terribly unprofessional. Will never use them again.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

Great night staff at DoubleTree Gainesville. Checked in at 1130pm. Had me in and out with my Hilton Honors arrival package in 10 minutes or less. Was in a rush and didn't get to try the breakfast but it looked awesome. Easy on and off of I-75. Loved the beds! We'll be back the next time through.

My stay here was just a quick stop to rest and hit the road again in the morning. Hotels rooms very clean and organized. Hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. Would recommend for anyone looking for a hotel off the highway easy to find and several different food options to choose from.

Staff put us in a room next to an elevator which we heard all night long. Why would you build a hotel with no sound barrier? To make matters worse ac unit rattled all night long. When I spoke with the manager she was very unapologetic and not concerned. One positive was lounge area is nice and they gave water...

Recently had a great overnight trip to Gainesville Doubletree---the staff and hotel were excellent. We are looking forward to going back and spending more time at the hotel. The hotel is located near shopping and dining----with easy access to interstate.

Beautiful renovation. Great hotel for families and close to shopping! Rooms are well appointed with lots of device plug ins. Room service is available but bar area is nice meeting place for drinks and watching the huge tv.

This hotel has everything we look for - great location, clean & comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff. We definitely had a relaxing stay. It's location is right off the freeway exit and has tons of restaurants, grocery stores, and pharmacies in the area yet our room was noise-free. And they'll give you chocolate chip cookies as you check in....

We only needed to arrive in Gainesville to get showered and ready for wedding the evening we arrived and the DoubleTree provided what we needed in addition to a comfortable place to return to sleep for the drive home the next day. We had a great breakfast with the most pleasant staff. I have no complaints about our service or...

There was a little confusion at check-in they couldn't find our second room but everything was quickly handled and the hotel was beautiful. We loved the courtyard area for sitting outside and breakfast was nice.

Our family stayed at this property for years when it was the Cabot Lodge and we loved it then. But now that it is a DoubleTree, it's even better! We had a mini-family reunion last weekend, gathered in the atrium-style lobby and Ceiia took care of us as if we were part of her family. Carol and Stephanie were amazing...
