“Very Clean and Centrally located!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

We stayed there this past weekend on our for one night as we were going to watch the Tampa Bay Lightning play at the St-Pete Times Forum. The location is ideal and only a 5-10 minute walk to the arena, so if you decide to stay downtown to go catch a game or a concert at the arena, the Hilton is ideally located. The rooms are very spacious and very clean just like most Hilton around the States. The price was pretty good as well as we booked it on Hotels.com for under $115 for a Saturday night. We will definitely stay there again next time we are in the area.

We enjoyed our stay. The hotel was clean, nice, good area. Nice view of downtown. Shower had strong water pressure. Valet Parking was a little the morning of departure. Unfortunately, it was just one night. We didn't have time to use any of the amenities.

Excellent staff and amenities are very good. Rooms are clean and well stocked. Parking is best by Valet and is a bit pricey but worth the ease as the attendants are fast and friendly. Very convenient to downtown and walking along the waterfront is a short block away.

Located in the heart of downtown Tampa, this hotel is newly remodeled, attractive and well run. Staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Business center is very modern, convenient and available 24 hours. Lobby adjoins a Starbucks. Great value for the price (group booking)

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in December 2013. In short, I would definitely stay here again; we had a great experience.

What I liked:
1) Staff--they were very friendly and made us feel very welcome.

2) Location--the location is in a very safe part of Tampa, and it was easy to get to from the interstate.

3) Starbucks--They have a full-service Starbucks.

4) Bathroom--The bathroom was small, but great. The water pressure in the shower was very strong, which is awesome.

What I didn't like:
1) Noise: I didn't notice any noise from the hallway, but I could hear the people next door talking. It seems that the sound came through the interconnecting doors. At one point, we could hear their entire conversation.

2) Internet speed--The internet speed is very slow, which isn't great since guests have to pay for the internet use. When hotels charge for the internet, particularly when the hotel is in a large city, I expect super-fast connections.

Modern decor and an edgy feel pervade the bar and lobby which are conducive to mingling with other travelers or working solo at technology web-stations in the lobby. Hotel is within walking distance to most major downtown office towers and a handful of good restaurants. Harbor Island experience is also nearby along with access to all major freeways.
