We booked our room through HOTWIRE and got a STEAL on the room. If I had paid full price, and had to pay parking, ect, I would not be happy about this room. Upon checking in, we were charged $8 for parking – we were never made aware that there was a parking charge for this hotel. The lobby was... More

I stayed at this hotel while attending a large meeting at the Tampa Convention Center. Although the hotel is over a mile away from the Convention Center, it's a lovely riverside walk to/from the hotel and the hotel also did a great job offering regular shuttle service. If I wanted a ride, I never waited more than 5 minutes on... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights a few weeks ago and was very satisfied. Rooms were very clean and the staff was awesome, especially an assistant manager by the name of Tracy Foley. She couldn't have been nicer and helpful. Overall, great hotel. Chester B

Not very clean, bathroom in disrepair, room smelled musky, in room phone didnt work, and restaurant was slow, slow, slow (40 min for soup & salad). On the plus side, they did have free shuttle service to the convention center, and it is conveniently located. Would not stay at again though.

Stayed for one overnight during spring break with my husband and 2 children 8 & 2. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Check in was quick and easy. We checked in at 5 after a long day out and about and the staff was very helpful with menus and info about area restaurants that could deliver to us. The... More
