Homewood Suites Opens in Gainesville

Homewood Suites by Hilton has opened the 103-suite Homewood Suites by Hilton hotel in Gainesville, Fla. The newly constructed property, which is owned and managed by the MckIbbon Hotel Management, Inc., represents another addition to the growing roster of more than 150 Homewood Suites by Hilton hotels nationwide.
“Gainesville has long been in need of an upscale extended stay hotel like Homewood Suites, which caters to guests staying five or more consecutive nights,” said Director of Sales Delight Curtis.
“Our hotel’s close location to the University of Florida and the fact that we offer first-rate amenities appeals to business and leisure travelers that need to feel more at home while they are traveling for an extended amount of time,” Curtis added. “We are the ideal place for those travelers who are away from the office for several days but still need to have all of the benefits of an office, such as an executive business center and complimentary high-speed Internet access.”
The Homewood Suites by Hilton Gainesville’s address is 3333 SW 42nd Street Gainesville, Fla., conveniently located just off I-75 at Exit 384, Archer Road. The hotel is within two miles of the University of Florida’s campus and within minutes of all area attractions, including Florida’s Museum of Natural History, Gainesville Raceway and Kanapaha Botanical Gardens.
The four-story Homewood Suites by Hilton features residential-style studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom suites with fully equipped kitchens and spacious sleeping and living areas that are large enough for work, study, entertaining or relaxing. In an effort to help guests be more productive, the Hilton Family of Hotels custom designed its own clock, featuring one of the easiest-to-set alarms. What’s more, the new clocks also feature a connection cable for MP3 players and other portable music devices including iPods, an addition Hilton made after research revealed that consumers prefer to maintain their own music lifestyles while on the road.
