Needed a room for one night pre-cruise. Got in late evening on day prior to departure so weren't able to utilize any amenties other than the room.
Most impressed with the service starting with the shuttle from the airport. Called the hotel for pick-up and they were there minutes after we retrieved our luggage. Had a bit of a mix-up on beds (wanted 2 doubles/queens versus 1 king) and couldn't switch rooms as hotel was full. Jorge went out of his way to find a cot for our daughter. Next morning, shuttle driver (Bob?) dropped us off at his favourite restaurant for Easter breakfast and picked us up an hour and a half later. Hotel also made arrangements for us for Blue One shuttle to the cruise terminal. Great service!
Room was very nice - clean, spacious and modern (flat screen, free wifi, work station). Bathroom appeared to have been recently renovated - very nice walk-in shower with rain showerhead. Only thing the room needs to complete it is a mini fridge.
Can't beat the location. About a 10 minute drive from the airport, about a 15 minute drive to the cruise terminal and less than a 10 minute walk from the WestShore Plaza (great stores and restaurants).
Definitely recommend this hotel and will stay again on our next visit to Tampa.
