Stayed here in Tampa for business, overall the Hotel was very impressive! Great lobby, great ambiance, and a nice feel to the lobby and common areas. I checked in and the clerk did not realize that I checked-in ahead of time via the Hilton Hhonors site and was not sure how I was able to check into an executive suite room. My check-in paper clearly stated such, and I was given a hard time. I'm not the type to say do you know who I am, so I was very polite and firm in telling the clerk my check-in process online. I think he was new since another gentlemen immediately came over and intervened. The rooms are very nice, and most have a great view of the bay. I was very impressed with the look and feel of the room. Very plush bed and linens. Contrary to some of the other reviews, I did not have to wait for everything. The elevator took it's time coming down and going up, but hey it's a 20 story hotel. Breakfast was on point and had a nice selection. Could use some more fruit variety, but watermelon and cantaloupe are good to go. Happy hour was a good time as usual. Make sure you check out the cool rooftop pool and go for a dip. Overall, I'd recommend this hotel to someone that is staying downtown, and isn't on a tight budget. $20 a day for valet parking and $14.95 for internet. If that's a big deal to you, don't stay here and complain. If you enjoy the finer things in life, like me, then stay here and enjoy the Tampa scene. Hotel is minutes from Ybor, so don't miss out on the good times.
