This is my 2nd time to this property. I stay here because of the proximity of the University and I am a Starwoods member. I believe that the renovations are coming right on time because the hotel needs a facelift. The backboards in our room looked like thay were used to play hockey with. Carpet needed replacing in spots. More outlets are needed for this new generation of electronics.The front desk staff was great. They had alot of house guests and kept up with it all. We were there during University of Tampa orientation week so I am letting them off the hook a little. But really this must happen every year and our experiences with the restaurant and valet left alot to be desired. Surely they must have expected a full house in both areas? The restaurant at breakfast was a free for all. Undermanaged, no bus help, not enough waitstaff and very angry guests. The kitchen was fabulous though, buffet was always replenished. Food was hot and enough choices to make the buffet worth spending the money on. Guests were clearing their own tables in a desperate attempt to find a space to eat. Really inexcusable. Waiter grumbling and not able to get me a clean spoon! The valet on most days/nights worked hard to keep up. But again one night there was only one young man working and an endless caravan of returning parents. Poor guy was running nonstop. Again understaffed. I will be back in Oct for parents weekend and hope the renovations will be at least started. I also hope they are ready for another onslaught of parents descending and have staff ready to greet us!
