I stayed at this hotel for one night, pre-cruise. The complimentary shuttle from the airport took only a few minutes to arrive and we were settled in our room about 30 minutes after retrieving our luggage. As we had a late evening arrival, dinner in the hotel restaurant was our best option. The atmosphere was much cozier than the website photos appear. Food was excellent, service was attentive and price was reasonable. Rooms are modern with exceptionally comfortable beds. From our 10th floor window, we had a great view of Tampa Bay. The Westshore Plaza mall is a very safe five minute walk from the hotel. Good shopping for a few additional pieces of cruisewear. The front desk offers transfers to the port for $10 per person. Book these when you check in. This hotel is now my number one choice for Tampa cruises.
