Spent 10 weeks during the summer 2013, great location downtown and close to the airport and Busch Gardens. The staff was really nice, ans the rooms were pretty good with microwave, fridge. Good pool, small fitness room, washing machine and dryer available.

Was there in January 2014 for a convention and the hotel was full of people with the same business as well as students from the College. The shuttle service was outstanding, took us anywhere we wanted to go, especially April, she was our Rockstar!! I had a great time, my first in Tampa and would go back in a heartbeat.

You can walk almost anywhere downtown in under 10 minutes and the hotel sits right on the river. The rooms were spacious with comfortable beds.
