We stopped at this Hilton while en route to Disney. Everything was wonderful. Michael at the front desk was sweet and even gave my daughter and me a rose being it was Mother's Day! He has a niche for customer service! The pool is very clean and well kept. It is open pretty late. The restaurant is tasty. We had...

Hotel location, lobby, staff, room, bar, etc are all very, very nice. What was very disappointing after making a reservation on line with Hilton well in advance with credit card guarantee and then taking the time to call the evening of arrival to confirm we were coming but would be checking in late ("no problem!"), were told that there was...

I arrived late in the evening, almost midnight, and everything was very quick which was greatly appreciated because I was very tired. When I went up to my room I found it to be a complete disaster.

Chosen for proximity to where we needed to be. It is probably one of the nicer places in town and with UF nearby they probably don't have to work hard for business. No reason not to stay here if you are in the area, but nothing outstanding to say either

I am providing a review based up the room, amenities, and overall stay. The stay was good but there is no selection for that so I had to select average. The initial customer service at the front desk was a bit horrid. If it wasn't for the Front Desk Manager I would not have been very happy. I did an...
