February in Tampa means Gasparilla running and expensive hotel rooms! I ran the Gasparilla 15K and paid a lot of money to stay at the Crowne Plaza for the weekend. Very nice hotel - clean, comfortable (especially bedding was quite excellent!) and attentive service. One suggestion -- avoid rooms near the elevators. In addition to elevator noise, you get vending... More

Although I was only able to spend a few hours here, I found it to be a very good hotel. While on a business trip I checked in after midnight to catch some sleep before getting an early morning flight. I certainly did not have to experience the hotel and its amenities but I thought the room was great and... More

*Not the ideal place to get good night sleep, as you get to hear every one that walks through out the hallways or when the guest next to your room takes a shower or flushes the toilet. *The bed and bed covers were the worse I ever slept on at a Holiday Inn brand hotel.

We stayed in room 136, the suite over the Valentine's weekend and the stay was awesome! We were right in front of the pool. Hotel staff was outstanding. Check-in person, Jorge was very attentive to our needs.

This is one of the more well-maintained properties I've stayed in recently. It was clean and well-kept. The staff is pleasant and the breakfast was certainly ample. The exercise room was small (only one treadmill) but serviceable.

Quick pick-up from the airport and the driver was willing to shuttle you anywhere within 4miles. Check-in/out staff were very nice. Lobby and pool areas looked inviting.

First the good news: You couldn't ask for a nicer group of people working in the hotel. Everyone from the front desk to the housekeepers to the maintenance people you encountered in the hallways were extremely friendly.

Lovely people, helpful, efficient, ten out of ten, dealt with any issue when reported. Room better than expected, but window blind did not keep out the street lights. Rest of hotel very ordinary, and food not even average. Ideal location for nearby mall, but bad weather prevented extensive outdoor travels.

Why are guests asked to initial and sign room rates upon check in? Seems like a hold over from a decade ago.

Stayed here in November 2014 for 2 weeks on a business trip.
