Hilton Ocala is a wonderful choice of a hotel for anyone, but it is especially great for those of who love horses.  First of all, Hilton Ocala is located right in Florida’s Horse Country.  But Hilton Ocala is particularly special because it has its own resident Clydesdale!  You can meet their Clydesdale, Buddy, and even help feed Buddy horse cookies.

But that’s not the only reason you’ll love staying here.  Hilton Ocala is located on six acres of land and has a resort-style outdoor pool.  Their Market Kitchen & Bar in the Chef’s Garden even grows their own ingredients.  You can even take yoga classes at The Reserve.  They have pet-friendly rooms, too.

So Hilton Ocala is great any time of the year.  But a special time to visit the resort is during Easter weekend.  That is because of their wonderful Easter Holiday Buffet.
