The staff was very courteous and professional. Our room was very clean and very quiet quiet quiet in the hallway and on either side of our room! Will definitely stay again! The breakfast buffet had a lot of great choices to choose from and fresh.

It was such a joy to come back where people remember you and welcome you with open arms! Jennifer Lizareli was the most gracious and accommodating once again! I wouldn't stay anywhere else and look forward to returning each and every time!

Clean and comfortable, the Residence Inn downtown is a nice place to stay for a short stay in Tampa. The hotel has some nice amenities, such as a kitchen and complimentary breakfast. There is also a hotel shuttle that runs within a two-mile radius, but it can be inconsistent. We were able to take it to nearby Ybor City, but... More

Stayed one night prior to a cruise out of Tampa. Hotel is average. The 1 bedroom unit was very small. Did have a kitchen but there were no stores near by to get food. In fact the number of restaurants was very limited. Good breakfast was a plus. They do provide complimentary transfer to the cruise port but expect to... More

Tampa annually hosts the Florida Educators Music Association conference. Rooms go quickly and you have to book really early. We always choose this property. You can imagine the amount of "business" that is happening as thousands of musicians invade the area for the conference. However, This property is always very well kept. We had a studio room and felt really... More

The Residence Inn has a homely feel which I love when I can't be home, and provided all the amenities I required. Friendly staff and the GM Deidre Cotterill always really bubbly and helpful. The location was a good starting point for daily walkabouts and the staff great for local information not found in tour guides.

It's right off the highway. Super close to Ybor city, they have a shuttle that will take you for free. Fast, friendly, easy early before noon check-in. Awesome happy hour, great complementary breakfast. A beautiful walk around downtown. Fabulous restaurants within walking distance. We totally loved this place & will be back for a longer stay.
