“Good for the price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2009

Stayed here the weekend of August 7th 2009.

On a whole this is a pretty nice hotel. The grounds are well kept up, the pool area is really nice and the pool is heated. There is also a fitness center and a buisness center with computers and a printer if you need it. Location wise it's about a 15 minute drive to ybor city and around 25 minutes to busch gardens. The rooms were clean though the bathrooms were a little small and the sink was in the bathroom which can be inconvenient. There was also no fridge and there was only a shower, no tub. The beds weren't great but weren't bad either. There is a flat screen tv which gets hbo.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful except for when we called to get directions to the hotel. The ones they gave us actually got us more lost if thats possible. My only complaint was the prices for extras. The breakfast buffet was 12 bucks and was pretty basic and the bar charged $5.35 for a bud light which is absurd and with no fridge in the rooms, it makes drinking at the hotel a little more difficult.

All in all a quality establishment

As a 30 year travel agent and traveller, I was convinced that this hotel was a good choice after reading th revues. I found this property to be terribly disappointing. After spending many nights at Hampton Inns and Embassy Suites, I couldnt believe that this hotel didnt even offer a free cup of coffee in the morning. The room was on the executive floor. What does that mean here? Nothing! No Coffee, no amanities whatsoever. We could not sleep that night. What were they thinking putting sheer pull down shades on a hotel near the airport with a huge window that has a 1000 lights shining in. They do provide a little packet with a mask and ear plugs, which I am sure was added when they received many complaints. The bathroom is adequate but small. The bed was comfortable, but it didnt help us. We used the little room coffeemaker until we got ready the next morning and took off. If you want a hotel near the airport that is full service and offers no amenities, stay at the Marriott! We are now at the Embassy Suites Boca Raton and are spoiled rotten.

came in late, check in was a breeze. Room was great. Very clean and simplistic as mentioned in other reviews. I enjoyed being surrounded by the plush pillows and gladly got lost in them.

I enjoyed the room because it looked very clean even with a slight odor of fresh paint. The bathroom was small, but efficient and modern.
Just one negative, we had breakfast the next day and the wait was long ( some 40 minutes for 3 people ). The waiter apologized as it was obvious by us and other guests that were also waiting, that service was not outstanding. Our food was quite great and served warm.
The lobby was modern and well decored. However, if you are like me, the room is focus of my comfort and as already mentioned, I have no complains.

We booked through Hotwire and received this hotel. It is in a great location with the Westshore Plaza, International Plaza and Airport all within a five minute or less drive. The hotel is completely brand new and the staff were very nice. Very comfortable stay.

This hotel is beautiful inside and out. The style is very contemporary with a helpful and polite staff. My standard guest room was probably the finest I've ever experienced (and that includes the Ritz chain). The bathroom was huge --- beautiful marble, large glass-enclosed shower with large "rain" shower head. I loved this hotel! From the friendly staff particularly at the front desk and housekeeping), large and very comfortable bed with several pillows, good furniture and a great view of Tampa. I'm not sure when I have encountered so many nice people in one location along with an excellent facility

Don't expect a comfortable, cozy type of place here. It's very IKEA-type minimalist in all aspects, except for the beds, which are very comfortable. We stayed in an Executive Club Level room. The rooms have an institutional look and feel, replete with a grey metal door, and I found myself wanting to stay away as much as possible. The chair in the room is a tiny, uncomfortable cube. The shades on the windows don't block out the sunlight well enough, and there are no drapes. Your voices echo, as there is nothing to absorb the sound. The bathroom is very small and there is minimal vanity counter space. There was no tub in our room, just a shower. The shower doors are clear glass. I prefer the privacy of a shower curtain or frosted doors, myself. The dining room's spartan tables and straight wooden backed chairs (think IKEA again) bespeak cafeteria = unwelcoming atmosphere, so we didn't eat there at all. This is a new place, so beware if you are sensitive to new carpet fumes. I was going to use the gym, but it is very small, under-ventilated and the fumes so strong it was hard to breathe just on a walk- through. If you're like me and like warm and inviting, comfortable furnishings and surroundings - the kind you want to sink down into and just let the stress melt away - I would not recommend this hotel, regardless of the deals that may be around. Likes: The pool area, the cleanliness of the place, bed and bedding.
