Hi my name is Jessica Morales i was coming to Florida for vacation and to visit my grandmother who is very ill. I heard great stories about the Howard Johnson in downtown Tampa so I booked my reservation. When arriving at the hotel I was greeted by the manager her name was
Eneida Rosado any questions or concerns I had she was there to help me out I was very impressed with how clean and neat the room was and the amenities etc. All the staff was very friendly and easy to talk to unlike a lot of the hotels I've been in the past. Me and my son LOVED the pool. I would like to say a special thank you to the manager Eneida Rosado for helping me out on good idea on things to do with my son and for being such a nice person hotels need more managers like you in their hotel. I look forward to staying with your hotel again When visiting in Tampa. Thank you Howard Johnson Downtown Tampa for a wonderful stay.

Stayed here for a 10 week mission trip type deal over the summer and they were excellent with their service to us. Anytime we needed something like another set of room keys they provided it to us with quick ease. All the staff is friendly and easy to talk to unlike a lot of the hotels I've been in the past. You have excellent scenery all around the hotel especially by the swimming pool. Not to mention we are right off the highway downtown which is awesome.
