Couldn't have stayed at a better hotel, considering what we came to Tampa for. It was my first time in this city. We were going to a football game on New Years. Unfortunately my team lost and all they rant and rave about was how a blown blocking assignment nearly took a dude's head off. Yikes. What a sad way to watch my team get beat, in the waning seconds of the game.
Sooo we got to the hotel. Parking was free and there was enough of it. Seemed like a nice lobby. Got to the room. It was a suite for about $105. It was great! Room overlooked Tampa Bay! Spacious! We liked it so much, we decided to stay another night and got it for a price under $100! What a deal! The restaurant-bar was very nice. The bartender/waitress was really cool. We had both teams' fans there and we just had a nice conversation all-around. Great experience staying at a very inexpensive hotel, near Raymond James Stadium, the mall, AND the airport!
