Just 10 minutes from airport. Close to major mall and nice restaurants. Contemporary rooms with very nice showers. Nice sized room and quiet. Hotel staff great--polite and helpful. Shuttle will drive you to nearby locations. Breakfast buffet nicely supplied and cheap for hotel breakfasts--about $14. I really like this hotel and would stay again.

While we were fortunate to have the opportunity to stay at this hotel at a significantly reduced price, our expectation of the Crowne Plaza experience was not realized. Recognize that this is a very nice hotel with courteous attentive staff! That being said, this older hotel obviously was refurbished with plenty of nice touches. But the building does not lend...

great hotel. No problems at all. We stayed there for a Rays game, online I thought i saw how it was close to the Field, maybe in Tampa terms it is close but not in physical distance. It is short ten minute drive, across the longest bridge ever. Would stay here again.

This is a great hotel. We got a top floor room with a great view of Tampa bay and the city below. We could lay in bed and watch the traffic on the different highway exchanges and the planes landing over at the airport. I'm very happy we chose to stay here and visit the city. I can't wait to...

We stayed for one night while visiting tbe Gulf coast beaches which are nearby. The room was adequate. The pool area looked inviting only because of the cabanas.
