“Nice hotel, excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

This is a nice hotel with outstanding and friendly service. It's in a convenient location and there are plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby. I've stayed at the Embassy Suites right next door to this hotel and it is an equally nice place. I think the Embassy Suites is slightly nicer, with rooms that show less wear. The breakfast at the ES is far better, though the Homewood Suites offers supper and breakfast during the week. I had supper several times at the HS and the meal was good. Both offer very friendly service. Both are very clean. I will probably stay at either or both in the future.

If you've ever been to a Hampton Inn, the Homewood Suites is very similar. Same comfortable rooms, but with mini-kitchens added. In addition to the standard amenities, there's free dinner and drinks every night (though the dinner food is passable at best). Excellent customer service at this location, though I must mention that the manager or assistant manager that impressed me so much recently left the company.

PROS:
-Service
-Comfort
-Quiet in spite of proximity to highway
-Internet that actually works
-Adequate number of power outlets

CONS:
-Slow, cumbersome Lodgenet TV service, offering a meager 30 channels with TV Guide channel, let alone a digital cable guide.
-Fitness room leaves much to be desired (no bench or free weights), but guests are allowed to use the fitness center at the Embassy Suites next door.
-Low ceilings and an awkwardly shaped bathroom.
-No single-serving dishwasher detergent.

Have stayed at this property annually for 3 years (about 10 days each year) and it's definitely my first choice when in the Tampa area for business. That said, on my most recent trip I had check-out early (Jan-23) because I found a bed-bug on a pillow before laying down. While I believe it was an isolated incident, it's still a scary thing. Front-desk was extremely helpful when I brought it to their attention and refunded my stay.

Just stayed three nights for business and found this to be a very well run Hilton property. The manager was attentive and she ensured that guests were well cared for and happy. The food was so good that I stayed at the hotel for dinner each night. I will stay here again.

We were pleased with the furnishings of the king suite. It was spacious, clean, and we like the convenience of having 2 bathrooms, especially having the vanity area separate from the bathroom/shower area. We like the Brandon area -- restaurants, shopping are close by. We had a family function to attend and needed the extra bedroom & bath. We will return to stay. I recommend this hotel --- we can depend on the Homewood Suites branch to deliver a comfortable place to stay.

Room Tip: The king suite is spacious. The room was quiet.

The restaurant staff was excellent. The breakfast and dinner choices were more than adequate. If you are not a disabled traveler and don't have any special needs this hotel is awesome. The beds were comfortable and the kitchenettes in the room well stocked with utensils and dishes. The internet does fade in and out if you are on Wi-Fi. The cable TV went out for about an hour one evening. Please see my tips below if you have ADA accommodation needs.

Room Tip: If you need ADA accommodations make sure you are very clear in your request. They do not know the di...
