I stayed at this hotel partly because i wouldn't have to pay for valet parking. the hotel is located adjacent, actually steps (literally, two small flights of steps) from the Internationa plaza mall. parking for the hotel is a little convoluted. the hotel seems to be in the back of the mall as was the parking but it still seemed like i was always driving to the back of the mall each day. nevertheless, the hotel is convenient to all the restaurants that are in the mall. my wife and i had a lovely time at the english pub at the mall and there were other dining choices to choose from including a food court. the reason we chose this location, other than the free parking, was its proximity to central tampa, clearwater and st. pete. the hotel was also minutes from the airport although there was no discernable airplane rumble. the hotel was clean, elevators were fast, didn't see much staffing at the front of the hotel, fast elevators, decent fitness area (about 4 treadmills, 4 ellipticals, didn't see bikes, some free weights and one multi function weight machine.) pool was nice as was the whirlpool. both are outdoors which can get hot in the florida sun. internet is not free. free newspapers daily. nice, but all in all, a little non descript. btw, i thought the bed was a tad soft.
