Made reservations at the last minute due to plane issues. How the reservations were made are not of concern. As a Platnium member figured all is well. I arrived via taxi very late. The lobby is spacious but untidy. But it is late so maybe just wanting for its daily cleaning. Gave my name and CC and the Associate seemed... More

Dear Edward S, I'm sorry that we didn't measure up to your expectations. I would like to take a few moments of your time to clarify a few points that may make your next stay more pleasant. It does in fact, matter how the reservation is made. If you make it through a third party, it can some times take... More

We were recently stuck on the RC due to heavy fog- the Buckeye Cruise for Cancer - raising money for cancer research. We had someone call the hotel to cancel our reservation. They will not refund us. We even had Southwest Airlines call (who we booked through) and they couldn't believe that they were not refunding us. They were well... More

Dear LisaBBM, Thank you for sending us your comments. This gives me an opportunity to explain situations like this to you and to others. When you book a reservation, your rate is based on several factors. One is the cancellation policy. Usually, the lower the rate, the tighter the cancellation rules are. In some cases, the reservation is not cancellable... More

We were in FL. for a couple trade shows and decided to try a different hotel then our usual. Loved this place. Great beach, Restaurant and bar. Fun to kick back after a long day. Next year other associates will also be staying here.

Amazing location and view make this hotel a must stay if you are visiting the Tampa-St, Pete area. With easy access to the beaches and downtown and a great view from the western facing rooms this hotel has it all. Attached is a restaurant that serves American fare with quality wait staff and an atmosphere that is hard to beat... More

We have stayed here before, and will do so again. Great value. Hotel is conveniently locate within 5 minutes from the airport, and close to a number of good restaurants. Rooms are clean and everything works fine. Beds and pillows are comfortable. The staff was most accommodating. We had asked for a first floor room and they put us on... More

Dear TennTom4, Thank you for the compliments. The staff really appreciates them. We would have enough luggage carts if guests would take them to their rooms, unload them and return them to the lobby. But they don't. They keep them in their rooms so they don't have to come to the lobby in the morning and get one. That means... More

Started out badly when staff could not find our reservation. I had a print out of the confirmation and had it on my phone.. I would reconfirm by phone also next time. We paid the extra to be upgraded to one of the waterfront rooms and it was well worth it. Beautiful room with single serve coffee maker and a... More

This hotel is located on Tampa Bay. Beautiful view. The rooms were clean but could definitely stand some painting and updating. Bed looked really lumpy but was fairly comfortable. The staff was friendly and accommodating. I would stay at this hotel again but would definitely pay the extra money to have a view of the bay.

Very convenient to airport and great shuttle service included. A little dated but clean, friendly, and great value. I had a wonderful view of pool and bay. Everyone was extremely friendly. Fish tacos from restaurant were quite good.

Dear BrandynFriends, Thank you for the informative review of our hotel. I just would like to add one small comment. I agree about the loud doors, but it is code in most areas, including here, that the doors must auto close when a guest leaves the room. We need that extra force to make sure that the door closes firmly... More
