The best part of this hotel is that it was close to everywhere we wanted to be in Downtown Tampa AND they have a free shuttle that will take you to basically everywhere you would want to go. It is the perfect location if you want to come to a hockey game or for any other major event. We came for a comedy show in Ybor City and there was a Lightening game at the same time, but our shuttle driver got us to where we wanted to go easily and on time. Plus, they come and pick you up!
The lobby has a very cool, modern design and I loved the art. We also enjoyed our view of downtown from our window. The room was clean and spacious.
Overall, we enjoyed the hotel and we would definitely stay here again.
