I only stayed one night (thank God) because we found 6 roaches in our room! We told them about the roaches at check out and they told us we would be refunded but three months later, no refund. Will not ever stay here again, paid too much money for a nasty room.

The hotel is pretty basic but worth it. Rooms are very comfortable and spacious. For the most part it's a super nice and comfy hotel. Not to mention that you're in the middle of the city so transportation with the shuttle or walking is easy. I enjoyed my stay very much with my boyfriend and I'd definitely return.

This hotel is big and has a nice little restaurant lounge that I enjoyed watching games with a beer. The food was great! The WiFi was AMAZING! Nice people, great service and the rate was good! The hotel was in a good location. It was easy to get around!

I have never stayed at this hotel but occasionally eat in their small bar/restaurant where the food is fresh and well cooked and it is very conveniently located across the street from the Straz theater. However we took 2 friends celebrating their anniversary to dinner here before a performance at the Straz. We sat down at 5:15 and no one... More

I've read and reread your comments over the course of this morning, and cannot write anything that could possibly address your experience and my personal embarrassment effectively. As the new General Manager, you've articulated my exact observation: WaterWorks restaurant has a very good kitchen team that is hamstrung by subpar to poor table service. I... More
