We booked a room here last minute when we decided to stay in Tampa overnight after visiting Busch Gardens. We checked in around 9, so I can't speak to room readiness earlier in the day, but they did have a room ready when we arrived. We opted to stay on a higher floor away from the elevators. We were in... More

This hotel was good. Large pool. Clean rooms. The only problems I saw was that everything you did had to be charged to your room. We were allowed two free drinks and two free breakfast per day per room. You still had to fill out paper work to charge it to your room. If you didn't exceed the max amout... More

It seem that somebody's painted over the red roof inn sign and put up crown plaza. Checked in a 3 pm and they stated no rooms were ready. I took the handicapped accessible room cause I was very tired. They called it an upgrade. It was no upgrade believe me. The room was very dated and had worn out furniture.... More

We stayed at the Crown Plaza one night before boarding an early morning flight June 7 after a week at the beach. I chose the hotel simpy because it was close to the airport and had airport shuttle service so we could return our rental car Friday night and get a ride to the airport Saturday morning.

For my recent family reunion held in Tampa, this was a great location. Close to the airport, with a shuttle to pick folks up and drop us off. Got the family to area malls and restaurants without a problem. With the added in hotel bar and club, made it a great choice for my family. The staff were wonderful.
