First, everything from check in to check out was incredibly easy. We were travelling for a seminar and had our one year old son with us. The gentleman in the gift store went out of his way several times to get the milk that we needed each morning, and took the time to provide us with several boxes of cereal items for our son to choose from. The pool is amazing, very relaxing on the mornings that i didn't have to run off to seminars for the day. The cucumber water in the lobby is addicting, refreshing and a great pick me up. The lobby is relaxing and beautiful, and the outside patio overlooking the river walk was a beautiful place to relax at the end of the day. The last two days we were there, there was a wedding and a Bruins game at the forum, so the hotel was pretty packed, and our quite sanctuary on the patio was overrun by sports fans and wedding guests. This is not the fault of the hotel, just bad timing. My only complaint was the valet parking. We were late twice to our seminars at another hotel because of the time it took to get our car, despite the fact that we called down ahead for it 30 minutes prior to leaving. One night we informed the valet that we were just meeting our babysitter in the hotel and we would be back out to get the car in 15 minutes. We were told they would hold the car, but when we came down 15 minutes later, the car wasn't there. We waited 35 minutes for the car at that point and were late for our night seminar. Other than that one minor flaw, our stay was perfect and we will choose this hotel every time we come in for a Tampa seminar.
