“Nice and quiet,clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

I booked last minute (march 27 for a stay that night ) and checked into a room on the 2nd floor across from the spa room. the room was clean,everything worked as expected and had a great,quiet sleep. Having a 700 am flight, i did not have a chance to check out much but was pleasantly surprised.

This was our second stay at the Tahitian. We had such a pleasant stay last time we were in Tampa, this year we decided to return and weren’t disappointed. Conveniently located in Tampa near all the major attractions it’s an ideal spot. When you are not out enjoying those local attractions the pool area is a great place to relax. The restaurant is superb with great food and service right there on sight. Rooms were nice, clean and comfortable. As always the staff was great. Thanks again to everyone there for making our stay such a pleasant experience.

I have stayed here twice before a cruise with my granddaughters for a cruise. The hotel is clean and offers free parking for the duration of your cruise and transportation to the cruise terminal. The people at the front desk were very cordial. There is a restaurant on the premises and plenty of restaurants nearby. Worth every penny to me. The transportation people were on time. Once off the ship they picked us up within 15 minutes and we were on the road home shortly after.

My Aunt Shirley and I were looking for a nice small quaint type hotel to stay the night before our cruise on the Jewel out of Tampa. I came across this boutique type hotel on line and it looked perfect for us. Most important is that it had a free airport shuttle and a shuttle in the morning to the cruise port. We arrived in Tampa and called for the shuttle and it picked us up in no time. We got too the hotel and got checked in and our room was ready. We were in the older part of the hotel, but the room was large and the beds comfy so we were happy. We were close too the pool which was a real gem...So pretty!! We loved it and it was pretty quiet that day and we had the pool too ourselves on the most beautiful afternoon. We spent the afternoon in the sun and you could call from the bar phone and order whatever you wanted and they would bring it out too you at the pool..The Happy hour had great prices and like $3.50 margaritas that were yummy!
We had dinner at the restaurant on property and it was fantastic... We sat outside by the waterfall and the Coi pond...It was picture perfect and the staff were wonderful.
The lobby is just beautiful as well as the grounds of the hotel.. We found this place a great value and so laid back.
In the morning it so easy to get the shuttle too the port. I can say nothing but great things about this place. I am glad I found it...Nice change from the chain hotels. If I cruise again out of Tampa I will stay here.
The only negative is the rooms smelled a little musty as do a lot of older hotels in Florida, but it did not bother us at all. We had a great stay...

Room Tip: We stayed in the older part of the hotel which was fine for the one night, but if too stay again I w...

The outdoor area in the back is nice. However, the rest of the hotel is run down, and the rooms are gross. Way over priced, and location is not good at all. Would not recommend.

In regards to your recent stay we would like to say that our rooms in the front of the hotel are the most recently updated, so I don't understand what part of the hotel you were refering to. The back part of our hotel is pool side and is also nice just not as newly renovated as the front of our hotel.

My husband and I just returned from a one night stay-cation at the Tahitian. We thought the room was an average room with nice upgrades. They have a beautiful pool area, but lounge seating was limited. We lucked out and got two lounge chairs after waiting for twenty minutes. The happy hour was nice. The outdoor seating at the restaurant was really beautiful. The food (at least at breakfast) was essentially a "Denny's"-quality, but the ambiance transported us to another place. Overall, we would return considering the price point (low $100's). If it were priced any higher, we might look somewhere else.
