4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here for a visit and tour of university of tampa with my high school senior. Great location, cool decor and big rooms. Sheets could be a little softer, but I'm picky! Staff was nice and there was a cool bar in the lobby. I would definitely come back, since it looks like I may have a UT student!

Great space with cool design and perfect downtown Tampa location. Staff is super friendly and well trained. Rooms are comfy, nothing is stale or corporate. If you're here for vacation or business you'll enjoy your stay at this hotel rebooted. That being said .... - their cocktail bar closes at 8 pm on Sunday's. What guest doesn't want a stiff... More

I remember seeing this being constructed and now had the displeasure of staying here during my residency at the university. This hotel is loud, with my first week trying to sleep as revelers partied in the lobby. There was a domestic dispute on my floor during my second week, a greasy elevator I nearly slipped in, and my grad program's... More

We stayed at Aloft in Tampa for New Years and it was good experience overall. The location, while attractive for surrounding area (waterfront view, and nearby venues such as Channelside), made it difficult to park at the hotel. This was one: due to the crowded New Years Eve party drawing extra traffic to their location, and two: due to their... More

What do I love? The modern (but fun) decor, the infinity splash pool with the fire pit, the shower with eco friendly shampoo dispensers, and the bar. The lobby area is comfy but modern, with plenty of places to relax and chill. The bar, next to the pool, has a happy hour and several Florida beers on tap, as well... More

Good: location and room size Bad: everything else! Unfriendly staff, no services of any kind - no restaurant, room service, laundry services (even though they have the laundry bags in the room!), poor housekeeping (did not empty trash or clean room properly...and had to call them twice in 5 days to come clean room). Which is all fine if I... More

Stayed 2 nights with family for an event in town. When you arrive to the hotel, the valet area has no signage to direct you where to go. We were left waiting for quite some time before the valet had a chance to help us. He was very busy, and had multiple people trying to park. I felt bad for... More

This is a great hotel with funky design. The staff was really nice and helpful as well. It is in a great location right on the riverwalk (at least once they finish it) and only a block away from the park where the art museum is. My only complaint was that the shower took forever to drain.
