“Thank you Tampa Crowne Plaza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

Great service, the check-in manager was super friendly, fast and helpful. Signed us up for a Crowne Plaza membership, discounts and bonuses. He even recommended a sunburn relief lotion that worke wonders on our flared skin.

The beds were comfortable and clean, the shower was clean and water pressure/temp was amazing. The 1 mi. drive to the airport made all the difference. We will definitely be back.

The first room we were given was sub-standard, at best, for what should be available at this hotel. There was obvious water damage to the carpet and the air conditioner could have used a service check. There was also an unknown stain on the wall next to the to toilet, which was disconcerting. Very loud, random noises occurred throughout the night (water running?). The staff members, however, were incredibly helpful and moved us to a different room the next day. In the new room, there were still problems. The outlets weren't anchored into the wall or lamp, making it impossible (and dangerous?) to try and charge our phones or computer. The walls are thin which makes it difficult to get any rest. The staff is wonderful, but they cannot make up for the shortcomings of this hotel.

Price was reasonable, location is close to the airport but not so noisy that you can't sleep, etc. Very close to the mall that has a few options for eating (Seasons 52, etc.) and they have both a free shuttle 24x7 to the airport and then a shuttle that will take you to close places (mile or 2) that you can pre-arrange during the day (in case it is too hot to get to the other side of the mall).

People were pretty nice, but 2 things to keep in mind. No vending machines in the hotel (upstairs or down) so you can only get a soda if you are hungry at night. They have a little stand right next to the front desk, but more beverages with a couple small food items.

The mini Starbucks doesnt have any food either, so no donut or bagel that you can grab in the morning for instance. They do have a restaurant on site for dinner and a place for breakfast. Didn't try either of those, but surprised to go to a place where you couldn't get a little snack at some point in the day.

Overall a nice place, room was comfortable, decent TV selection, wired and wireless internet for free in some rooms, etc.

Probably not the best place for a family stop, but for a business travel, pretty good.

I've stayed here twice for business and I really liked the service, location, and rooms.
The location is right near the airport and down the street from a nice mall.
The first time i stayed in a room in the main tower. It was very nice, clean, and spacious. The second time, I was in a suite in the older part of the hotel next to the pool. I was nervous walking to my room because that section looks like an old motel, but I was pleasantly surprised when I went it. It was very modern, clean, and huge. The fire alarm was chirping the sound it makes when the battery is low. The front desk person said they would send someone to replace the battery ASAP. It was 11pm and I was ready to relax and worried that I was going to have to wait long. Well, the repairman, (I think his name was Carlos) arrived within minutes...BUT, the funny part is...we started talking and we ended up chatting for about 30 minutes!! Lol...I really enjoyed our conversation.
The hotel breakfast was pretty good. I'm not much of a breakfast eater, but I enjoyed it.

Very warm welcome and service at the check in, they welcome you in your own language(German), Rooms exelent and very clean near downtown, beach and airport but still quiet so you can relax after a day of work. Airport shuttle at your time. Restaurant very good in food and service and not over priced.

Property is a bit dated but some nice modern touches have been added. It was clean, the beds were comfortable which are our two main requests. Shower head was very nice with good water flow and lots of room in bathroom. Staff was helpful with good smiles. Near a shopping mall and many restaurants.

Some little things that could be better: parking lot in front was full so we parked in the back where it was a long walk back with our luggage through meeting rooms to get to the elevator and up to our rooms. Needed some note paper and a pen to write down info and none in the room; there had to be 8 pizza advertisement all over the floor in entry way of room. We did miss having a frig & microwave but only staying for our first & only night in this hotel didn't cause us any problems.

Overall, good place for a short stay.
