Rooms were clean and spacious. Nice furniture. We had two encounters with the staff. First at check-in they were helpful and fast. But when we wanted to have breakfast at the buffet next morning, we had one of the most terrible experiences ever. The breakfast area is a complete mess and they don't have enough staff to handle the customers.... More

My family did a 4th of July trip to Tampa and stayed at the Crowne Plaza because I had stayed there before for work. Since we were with our 4 month old we decided to upgrade and get the suite and the breakfast was offered. I am so happy we did! The suites are by the pool and they are... More

Service was excellent. We were upgraded to a King Cabana suite due to our Platinum membership. However, once in the room the leather couch had rips on them. The blinds were not darkening blinds so the lights from the pool filtered in which meant the sunlight also shined through. We arrived late and didn't ask to be moved to another... More

This hotel is near to the airport and Westshore Mall. Breakfast was not included. The rooms are nice in the high main building. they are clean and renovated. Restaurants are nearby. The poolarea is ok, but nothing special. I had a special price for 65$ what is ok for such a hotel. Good 3 star standart.

We stayed at the Crown Plaza after flying into Tampa in the mid afternoon. There isn't a lot of stuff around the hotel but the bar downstairs is very nice. We did have a nice relaxing afternoon and evening and checked out pretty early in the morning

I was very pleased with this hotel. We stayed one night before a cruise. The hotel is located very close to the airport and my family loved watching all of the planes landing overhead while we were in the pool.
