My husband and I went to Tampa, just the two of us for a long weekend. Not knowing anything about the area, we choose this hotel from a list provided by the airline. It has no resort fees and it is right on the river walk. I must say, it was absolutely beautiful. The people there were very friendly and helpful. They tended to our every need, from bringing fresh towels to us to getting us a taxi when we ready to depart. The hotel is very clean and so pretty. My only disappointment was there was absolutely nothing to do except walk along the river walk (which we did many times) and we did do a moonlight boat ride which was fun. There are very few restaurants in the area unless you want to get a tax every time you leave the hotel. There are no "little shops" nearby unless you walk to where the cruise ships come in to port. Overall, the hotel itself was very nice and the people took very good care of you. If you are there on business, this is the place to stay.
