The rooms were just beautiful and spotless, even though the hotel lobby was undergoing renovations. I was given a fourth floor junior suite, a free upgrade that I did not even request! I felt completely pampered. Free ice cream in the evening, extensive tv satellite channels, incredible and friendly service, a great breakfast.... I did not use the pool, but enjoyed the exercise room. You will love your stay here. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. It was one of the highlights of my trip and definitely the best or second best stay I have ever had. (The Sanibel Residence Inn is also wonderful.) For your next vacation, pamper yourself with a stay at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites Tampa I-75. You'll hate to leave!
