I went to the Nacubo conference, using this hotel for my duration there. My two colleagues and I received the 2 room suite located on the 7th floor. Room 715 to be exact. I slept on the sofa bed and within 2 days I noticed bites on my feet. Disregarding this because of "this is Tampa and there are bugs." After sleeping there the third day, I noticed that the itching became extremely annoying and could not help itching my calf and my ankles. Upon further examination after sleeping on the sofa bed the third night, I noticed that there was many more bites than I had expected. A multitude of small bites, all on my 2 feet with some on my ankles and calves. I counted around 25 small but consistent bites. Being someone that knows the value of business and how the economy has affected hotels and occupancy, it pains me to write this. I guess I was naive for sleeping on the sofa bed a 3rd night only to wake up to find various bites on my arms and my back. After speaking to my colleague about this, we alerted management immediately that morning. Obviously being courteous and understanding, they promptly examined my feet and gave me another room for the last night. However, the damage has been done and I pray that I did not take any back home to new York. If anyone is wondering if I was bitten outside, I wore business casual all throughout my trip, (long pants, dress shoes, and polo/button-down shirts) As I am writing this, I am scratching myself to oblivion in new york. Other than this, the breakfast was accommodating, the shuttle service was superb and the front desk was extremely helpful, especially the girl with the glasses reading her kindle ;P. Thank you for reading and I hope this review will not deter you from staying at this hotel. I hope my experience was a far standard deviation from the norm.
Great rooms, ask the front desk based on your needs.
