I was to stay here for a conference. I had to cancel the reservation. The downtown hotels have a contract with the conference that says that if reservations are not cancelled by a certain date, one nights stay will be charged. Not a problem if they take the reservation correctly. The person who took my reservation over the phone misspelled my name. Why in the world are they incapable of looking up the confirmation number without the name? You'd think the name on the credit card would have helped her spell it. I would have given them one star, but after talking to two people at the 1-800 number, the local person at the hotel was able to find the problem. I have stayed at various hotels in downtown Tampa through the years. I can't recommend any of them. Stay outside of the city.
