We always stay at this hotel when attending concerts at the Tampa Bay Forum. You just walk across the street and avoid all the traffic & parking issues. It's a beautiful hotel and the service is excellent. You have to pay for valet parking but it's worth it. If you get a room with a water view you can sometimes see the cruise ships coming or going. The room was clean and the beds and pillows are very comfortable. There is a nice pool, a small jacuzzi and a small exercise room. It's in a great location. We enjoy being on a high floor and just looking out the window.
