We chose to stay here when our flight from Tampa to Nashville was grounded in January. We stayed to nights. They were very accommodating. Easy check in and check out. Hulk Hogan's Restaurant is connected to the hotel and the food there is GREAT. Very helpful with shuttling you around. The rooms were comfortable, we were right on the beach... More

This was my second stay at this hotel, the first being ten months earlier. They continue to renovate and things are looking great. The staff are all very friendly. We stayed two nights before a cruise and one night after. Claudette on the desk remembered me when we came back after the cruise and she was most helpful in putting... More

I stayed at the Bay Harbor hotel 12/28/13 -12/29/13, before we went on a cruise. The hotel is fairly close to the airport and has a free shuttle to the hotel ($10.00 per person to the port). We got there at about 10:30 p.m. and the front desk staff were very helpful. The room was clean and about average size... More

nice views but no shops or restaurants within walking distance. The rooms had dated decor with noisy Ac/heating units. Nice to relax but not very inviting. Nice beach and bar area but the restaurant is a tired sports bar with limited unexciting menu. Close to airport,with free shuttle. OK for a night or two but not really a vacation stay.

Dear glorista, I'm sorry that your stay was not exactly what you expected. Did you know that our complimentary shuttle can also take you to two of Tampa Bay's foremost malls? These malls have several restaurants as well as major department stores and shops. There are also several restaurants nearby on the shuttle route. All of our rooms are being... More

The hotel was close to the Tampa Airport. Great entry to the hotel, it was inviting. The staff was very helpful. The room was large and very clean. We had a bay view, very nice. We watched the dolphins swimming in the bay. We had a great breakfast in the restaurant. Overall, a great experience.

Stay for 2 night, very service minded staff - solved our problems fast and without any discussion. Internet on room worked very well. Big and very clean room on 6th floor. Breakfast was not included and to expensive for what you get in the restaurant. Pool very nice and clean. Will be back next year.

Absolutely gorgeous!!! The view of Old Tampa Bay was spectacular. The rooms were very comfortable and clean and the staff was courteous and helpful. We were extremely happy with our choice to stay at this location. I would recommend this location to any friends planning to go to Tampa.

My son and I stayed here after Christmas. Everything was great. The hotel was laying tile in the front lobby upon arrival. It was finished the next day.

Dear Robert P, Thank you for your comments. They are helpful. Believe me, I am sorry about the situation with ESPN. The problem lies with the provider, so there was nothing the front desk could do. As a result, we are in the process of changing providers, so the next time you come, the situation should be remedied. I do... More
