“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

The staff is very friendly/helpful, the rooms are very clean/comfortable and the location is perfect for business travel. Coast (the on site restaurant) serves pretty good food and the portions are more than enough to leave you satisfied. Overall a great hotel and value.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

This was our 2nd visit, so I know our favorable reactions weren't a fluke. We arrived after a long, multi-leg flight from Europe. My watch said 10:00 p.m., but my body said 4:00 a.m. and we were too tired to drive safely back to Sarasota. Since our car was parked in the very-well-priced A-1 Express garage next to the HGI, and there is free shuttle service from the airport to the hotel, we called and reserved a room.

Room was clean and very comfortable -- delicious, actually, after a long flight and a stressful baggage retrieval. Speaking of delicious, the breakfast buffet was better than average as well, with eggs cooked to order by a cook (Peter Orlovic) who actually listens to what you want, and lots of other tasty choices. He also had made some corn muffins with cranberries that my husband really enjoyed. At about $12 p.p. on Sept. 8, 2013. that is a very good value.

All the staff seemed really nice and responsive, from the gals at the lobby desk to the waitress to the To the Op. Mgr. we spoke to, Christopher Bryant. We wanted him to know that he was helping to run a hotel to be proud of.

I gave this HGI a top -- Excellent -- rating not because it's one of the greatest hotels in the world, but because it's extremely good for what it is, in terms pf comfort, value, cleanliness and location.

After a long drive from New Orleans, my sister and I was looking forward to a hot bath and a comfortable hotel to rest our head.But instead we got a hotel that showed beautiful online and a major disappointment when we arrived.The air in the room was filled with a fragrace designed to cover up something.The sofa bed was stained ,the mattress as well.Stained curtains,and pillow cases. The first thing I said to my sister was this can't be happening to us.Ok, the hotel I'm referring to is the TOWNEPLACE SUITES (MARRIOTT),Avion Park Dr. I have always loved the Hilton Hotels,and during my travels through out the years Hilton Corp.has never disappointed me.I looked out of the window of the hotel my sister booked :-) and saw Hilton,I walked over and was at awww, as I approached the front desk I was greeted with a pleasant smile from Rosie and Jonathan. I explained my situation to Rosie,and she went beyond a front desk clerk by taking us from a potentially unpleasant trip to one with great memories,. I will never forget this, and will return every year along with my family members and friends who will be returnig for the SAINTS BEATING THE BUCS .Thank you,Rosie ,because of you and other Hilton employees,we had the best first visit to Tampa.
ps Thank you for the complimentary breakfast. Donna & Gloria The traveling sisters

Consistently good experience for 5th visit in just over a year. Hotel is clean and comfortable. Hotel staff are very responsive. Breakfast buffet is good. Complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport is very efficient. There is also local shuttle services to several malls. Always a good experience. Sleep Number beds are wonderful!

Excellent place to stay near airport and mall. Did some shopping and then went to a concert at the Middle Florida arena. Nice modern, hip feel. Very clean rooms and friendly staff. Nice pool area and pretty lobby.

I stayed only one night, but had a great experience. I was welcomed by Silvana at the front desk with a warm smile and some wonderful restaurant recommendations. Nice big comfortable rooms at a fair price for the proximity to TPA. The staff was constantly were asking me if there is anything else they can do to help make my stay more enjoyable. I'll definitely be coming again!

I stay at this property on a bi-weekly basis and it's a perfect central location for everything you want to do in Tampa. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean, the internet is faster than most hotels, and the Coast Cuisine restaurant is amazing!

I'm always greeted by name when I walk into this place and Silvana at the front desk will do everything possible to accommodate your needs. If you are looking for a great business friendly hotel, this is your spot. Oh, and the parking is free as well!
