My stay was wonderful all around, but I would have to say that the Staff was the highlight! They were very upbeat, polite, and went above and beyond for all my needs. I will definitely stay here on my next trip to Tampa.

RJ and the Front Office were outstanding. The team went above and beyond during my stay and arranged my transportation with their shuttle. RJ is a wonderful manager and is one of the best employees at this property. I will return based on the service I received. Thanks.

Hotel staff was very friendly. The hotel was very clean. We always stay here when we visit our son at USF. It is a little more expensive than some other hotels but is well worth it. I love the complimentary cocktails at night and the breakfast bar is great.

Had to stay here for a meeting I had to attend, price was right, accommodations were nice, clean, spacious free breakfast left something to be desired, nice to have beer and wine available for free at ngiht for happy hour, but the accompanying snacks were pretty unexceptional

Our tennis league used the banquet facilities for our annual banquet and the staff, food and service were excellent. Pascal Pisoni, banquet director, was courteous, professional and very accommodating, The day was a complete success and to please 240 women if not an easy task.
