“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We stayed one night before leaving Tampa after vacationing in Sarasota. we are just minutes from the airport. We were greeted promptly by a very polite and helpful staff. Our room was roomy and very clean I would definitely stay again! The bed was super comfy. We would definitely stay again!!

Room Tip: Our room was on the west side. We had a corner room with plenty of space.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

I stayed for 2 nights on business in Tampa. I stayed in one of the suites on the ground floor facing the pool. Hotel is easy to find with free parking. Staff were friendly but very slow on checkin. There is a restaurant and bar. The suite rooms are more like apartments and are very large and with excellent features. Hotel Gym is more of a basic fitness centre but still good enough. The service from the local staff was excellent when I needed directions to another hotel. They just brought me there. Although I was on business, a few nights on vacation wouldn't be too bad.

Room Tip: Ground floor facing pool rooms were excellent. I did not stay in the main hotel rooms.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We stayed here for one night post cruise. The staff is outstanding and that's the best this hotel has to offer. We were upgraded to a cabana suite - and although the suite was large and comfortable, the sheets did not fit the mattress and the mattress pad was completely visible. The lighting was poor throughout the unit. The main building was more the "crowne" model and after speaking with other guests housed in that part, they commented that there were nice views from their rooms. There's really not much to do in the immediate area - Westshore Mall is within walking distance and the complimentary hotel shuttle will take you anywhere within 3 miles (airport, International Mall, etc). We would not stay at this hotel again.

Booked last minute on Hotwire and got a great deal. They picked me up at the airport and also offer a free shuttle to locations within a 3 mile radius. It was a five minute walk to the mall with some great restaurants and high end stores. Sports Authority and a Walgreens are among other stores close by outside the mall. I would stay there again.

We stayed for 1 night prior to a cruise. Complimentary airport shuttle was great. Very late airport arrival. Check-in was quick & easy. We had a ground floor pool side suite. 3 people were sharing the room. I had called 4hrs prior to our arrival to ask that the sofa bed be opened and had clean linens... this was not done and it involved 2 calls to housekeeping to get all the bedding.

The room was comfortable and very clean. You can tell that this is an older property, but has been updated. Bathroom was huge...nice tile and glass shower. Breakfast buffet was included. Food was very good, and plentiful. Front desk arranged transportation to cruise port.

I would stay at this hotel again. Clean, comfortable, convenient, and very affordable.

Room Tip: Poolside room would be very convenient for familes with children. Easy access from the room... no wa...

From check in to check out the staff at this hotel were nothing but accomadating. The meals were great and not out of budget. This hotel has a wonderful pool and several outdoor areas to sit and enjoy the weather in Tampa. The hotel has a port shuttle available for a$10.00 per person fee. It is within 2 blocks of a large shopping plaza with numerous restaurants and in a very safe neighbourhood. I would definitely stay there again. The view from our 10th floor room was spectacular. The room was spotless and the bed super comfortable. The hotel was very quiet.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 9th or tenth floor.

I was lucky enough to stay here the weekend before New Year's
Eve....and loved it. I was immediately greeted with a big smile, and check in was quick and painless. When I arrived at my room on the 10th Floor, the view I had was absolutely gorgeous. The room was spotless, roomy and very modern....and the bathroom was amazing. I ordered a meal via room service, and the service was excellent and the food delicious. Check out was a breeze, and once again was greeted with a smile. My overall experience was extremely positive... and I will gladly stay here again in the future. Thanks to all at the Crowne Plaza Tampa
