My husband and I stayed at this hotel for a birthday party for a friend; we actually had stayed here previously and hadn’t realized it. But our check in was quick and the staff was very attentive. The rooms are always nicely cleaned and the bed is always comfortable. The hotel is always a buzz no matter what night, yet it still feels safe as it was always quiet. The breakfast is always amazing. The manager’s reception was really nice. The bartender was a little frantic, but apparently he had to work by himself. The party was a blast, as the family did the décor etc, but the staff served the food which was AMAZING…. All night passed horse’douves and the staff once again a pleasure to be around. There was one staff member/chef that had a great demeanor and customer service. He always had a smile on his face. In the morning and that night at the party and again the next morning for breakfast. I recommend this hotel to anyone going to Tampa for a visit. It’s close to Bush Gardens, downtown, Ybor city and the mall.
