Recently we spent a night at this hotel. The stay was O.K., but seriously the prices for this place are a bit ridiculous. To add insult to injury, they charge additionally for parking which is just plain greedy. Also they skimp on the in room coffee supply, and you have to contact the front desk for lots of little extras... More

Thank you for your review of our property. I want to respond to your comments without sounding defensive. We have to charge for parking due to the very high demand in our area for parking and for us to provide security and patrolling the lot for non guests this fee is a must. As far as coffee in rooms we... More

We have been staying at this hotel at least 2-3 times a year whenever we need an in state get away and any complaints we have ever had have been alleviated with the beautiful renovations. In the past we've had issues checking in and with the elevator not working. Even through the times when then lobby area was closed and... More

Good place to stay. It is an easy walk to different places in Ybor City. Nice and friendly staff. Rooms are nice and clean. Nice looking lobby. It is a shame to have to pay separate for the parking, as it should be included in the price of the room.

Thank you for the compliments and being specific about our hotel and staff. We truly appreciate your feedback. As far as parking we have taken all of the comments that we receive on trip advisor and via Hilton into consideration. For us to provide parking in this high volume area with security it is a necessary charge and we do... More

Every member of the staff we encountered were very friendly, professional, and helpful. All areas inside were clean and well maintained. My only detraction was not having the peace of mind from an in-room safe.

The hotel is well located, modern, attractive, well maintained, and professionaly staffed. The only issue with it was an apparant lack of insulation between the rooms; I heard a clock radio on one side, and a person's conversation on the other.

Thank you for your review and specific comments about our hotel. Thank you for pointing out the modern design, it helps to hear that the makeover was worth it!

This is an average hotel in the Hilton chain. Whether because of the location or the proximity to a local college, there seems to be a disconnect between realistic pricing at the bar and restaurant and what they are charging [$7.00 per shot for whiskey and $9.95 for eggs at breakfast]. Also, the hours of operation for the bar miss... More

We have stayed at this hotel for approximately 20 years. We stopped staying at the hotel because the hotel staff that we knew very well left the hotel and the hotel really started to deteriorate. Since then, we decided to stay and were pleasantly surprised as the hotel has been beautifully remodeled and the new hotel staff are quite friendly.... More
