Pros: This hotel is new and very close to the UF campus. We were there for graduation weekend and was within walking distance to the campus and restaurants
Location: Within walking distance to the UF campus as well as stores and restaurants.
We received warm greetings and prompt, professional service at the front desk. Our room was extremely clean and very comfortable. It was also a very quiet room even though our room was located very close to the elevators. We enjoyed cocktails at the bar and the server was friendly and very knowledgeable.
