“Good stay for business trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stayed here for a 3 day long business trip in February. Nice room (but very low ceilings! Watch out if you are over 6'4" tall...the sprinkler heads will cut you!), nice accommodations, nice front-desk staff. The restaurant in the hotel had gross food for lunch and attitudes from the waitstaff to match. Some of the waitstaff girls were visibly arguing with each other on the floor about how to ring up a customer instead of filling drinks and actually working. Not professional!

The conference rooms were spacious and accommodating, but the hotel tried to charge the seminar $100 for a flip chart when we could get one at Staples for $25. A little over priced with that kind of thing. Hotel is right on the Interstate which is very busy! Our room was on the side of the busy highway, but it was not unbearable to hear the traffic for us since the sliding glass doors drown out most of the noise. If you are a light sleeper or not used to sounds of high-speed traffic and 18 wheelers at all hours of the day and night, you might want to make sure you are on the opposite side of the hotel. Nice view of downtown Tampa from our room though!

The rooms were clean and spacious and the lobby and atrium was very well manicured and nice. The pool area was large and clean as was the fitness center. This hotel is very close to the airport and offers a free shuttle to and from the airport or any local restaurants which is very nice. I would go back to stay, but I would not eat at the lobby lounge for anything other than the buffet breakfast or evening cocktails. Lunch and dinner was NOT good. The breakfast was decent, but nothing to write home about.

Overall an OK business trip stay.

Room Tip: Ask which side of the hotel your room is on to avoid loud traffic. Don't eat at the lounge unles...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Needed a room for one night post-cruise. Got to the hotel early in the morning after disembarking the ship and was told rooms weren't ready yet. Dealt with Brooke at the front desk. She was very pleasant and promised a room would be ready in a couple hours. Left our luggage with the concierge and found a few things to do for that time period. Came back after lunch and found our room ready as promised. This was our first intro to the excellent service here.

Room was very nice - clean, spacious and modern. There were 2 very comfortable queens, a sofabed, separate sitting room and bedroom, 2 flat screen TVs, free wifi, work station, mini fridge, microwave, bar sink). Bathroom was small but clean. Only had 2 sets of towels (for the 3 of us) and no faceclothes but not a big problem for a one night stay. We found the bathroom to be dimly lit and suggest improving next time renovations are needed. We were missing a TV remote and guest services had a replacement to us in less than 5 minutes. That just enhanced our impression of good service. Also had great service from the shuttle driver to the airport early next morning.

Can't beat the location. It's about a 10 minute drive to the airport, about a 15 minute drive from the cruise terminal and less than a 10 minute walk to the WestShore Plaza (great stores and restaurants).

Definitely recommend this hotel and will stay again on our next visit to Tampa.

Room Tip: perhaps stay away from a room in the back of the hotel that faces I-275

Dear GregWpgMB

We are glad you folks enjoyed your stay with us following your cruise. So sorry for the couple of hiccups but I am glad they got corrected. We have had the pleasure of hosting many Canadians this winter as they have taken a break from braving the cold and enjoyed a Caribbean cruise. Hope you make it an annual tradition!

The hotel staff excellent, there were no bath towels (discovered at an inopportune time) in the room. Front desk called and we had towels in literally 5 minutes. the Front desk helpful with confirming info about Charley's Resturant next door. Rooms clean and comfortable. Breakfast buffet with good variety. Hot food was indeed hot. Location great if you need to get to or from the airport.

Nice place to stay in Tampa Old but rooms were nice. The big thing is the parking very poor had to go out at 10 p.m. just to put my Veh. into a parking place at the Hotel. The rooms very nice and two TV. made it also nice for the two of us. Mom is 86 and likes her TV shows.

Dear Rock61Rock,

Thanks to you and your mom for staying with us. Yes, sometimes our parking lot fills up but during the day we can use the restaurant parking to our west and in the evening we can use the parking deck to our east. I’m sorry that this was an inconvenience during your stay. I like my TV too and we now have 45 channels to choose from including 17 in HD.

My wife, son (4), daughter (2), and I booked a room here last minute for 2 nights as a change of plans. We chose it for its location (minutes from the Florida Aquarium and Glazer Children Museum), the heated indoor pool, the quality of room, and the casual restaurant/breakfast options.

We had the breakfast buffet twice and dinner at the hotel restaurant (St. James). I enjoyed the BBQ bacon burger, and my wife liked her grouper sandwich. We also ordered room service (buffalo wings) that were brought timely and well presented. Prices for food in all instances were reasonable, although the room service meal was more expensive than the in-room menu presented.

The kids enjoyed the pool, the kid's menu pizza, and the glass elevators, and we enjoyed the separating door between the "bedroom" and "living room", integrated desk/workspace, and refrigerator/microwave in our suite. We were very satisfied with our decision to stay at Sheraton Suites Tampa, and the other TripAdvisor reviews were a significant deciding factor for our choice.

Suggestions for improvement:

We would have liked to have seen some pancakes/waffles on the buffet, but the selection of what was there was still quite good.

We also would have enjoyed a hot tub / jacuzzi at the pool area, although the pool temperature was quite warm itself.

We had to specifically call the front desk to have our room cleaned, & towels changed (this was by late-afternoon, despite being out of our room most of the day) - but it was promptly taken care of once we made the call.

Perhaps a few more options for kids in the hotel - a game area, or some other activity option?

Nothing major, just a few things that came to mind. Thanks for reading.

Room Tip: We asked for (and received) a room facing close to Cypress St. to avoid the I-275 traffic noise.

Dear nathanchase,

Thank you for the great feedback. So glad that you and your family enjoyed your getaway. I am sharing your suggestions with our chef and guest services team as they are good ideas. I too am partial to the grouper sandwich. Ours is awesome! I suggest ordering it blackened. Hope to see you all the next time you need to stretch your legs.

While visiting Tampa we booked this hotel.
Easy to find right off the main highway and very close to the airport.
The check in was fast even though there were many cruise people checking in and out.
We had two rooms. The living area had a pull out couch, large TV computer area with lots of outlets and a micro wave, bar fridge and sink area with coffee maker.
The bed was very comfy and the bedding real nice. Can't beat a Sheraton sleep! It had one of the smallest bathrooms Ive seen in a hotel-one person at a time area- but it was nicely decorated and stocked but we did have to ask for extra towels and facecloths.
We did eat in the restaurant and found the staff very charming and prices were very responsible. Food was great and the breakfast buffet was plentiful and priced right.
They have a small inside pool attached to the exercise area.
The only negative thing we found was that all the rooms open onto a walkway that over looks the lobby and it got noisy in the morning with people coming and going and in the evening with music from below.
We stayed two nights and would definially book here again.

Room Tip: We had a room facing the highway and it was quite loud with the balcony door open..we usually don...

Dear kitten50

We so appreciate your group staying with us. We have learned much this cruise season from our Canadian friends. For instance, Moncton, New Brunswick has long been a railroad center generating the nickname “Hub City” and is near to the famous Bay of Fundy with its 50 feet tides. We can all learn something every day.

My wife and I, along with another couple, stayed at this hotel for three days prior to, and a week after out cruise. Any issue that arose was instantly and graciously resolved, and with a smile!! Staff was outstanding and catered to all our requests. Keep it up Sheraton!!!

Room Tip: Try to avoid the rooms on the highway side.
