“Great base hotel for Spring Training”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

Just returned from a great trip down to florida for spring training. Hilton had great service and amenities. Staff was very responsive and always offered assistance before asked. We love the hotel bar which had creative cocktails and fabulous bartender in Pilar. Pilar gave us great restaurant recommendations and even made reservations with a friend at a place that was hard to get into. Would highly recommend this hotel.

The comfort of the room, the hotel staff and the location of this hotel make it ideal for a business conference. You can take a quick shuttle from the airport, enjoy downtown Florida, the sunshine, and really relax during downtime from any meetings

My weekend getaway was not at all what I expected. The room was nice and so was the facility. But the noise levels were ridiculous. Do not stay in the 6th floor wing overlooking the pool. Nice view, but the fitness room is there and all morning (early morning might I add) there was someone throwing around weights and making large amounts of noise.

Excellent location that was within walking distance to all the Tampa attractions, very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and comfortable beds! The only downside was the room fan wouldn't stay on through the night no matter what I did. It only stayed on to heat or cool the room. If you're like me you like the fan on to drown out typical hotel noise, and it helps me sleep. A tip though...to make yourself feel more comfortable when you come through the lobby, wear business dress or better. High class if you know what I mean. ;)

Breakfast was a sit-down type only available for free to Gold members or above. Looked good, but I ate out.

This hotel is in the heart of downtown, so the views are rooftops, walls of glass and parking structures. The hotel restaurant seemed overpriced for breakfast (juice, a mislabeled muffin, and *small* bowl of cereal not worth $11; the full hot breakfast would have been $17!), but the mid-week lunch buffets were reasonable ($14) with plenty of food. I really enjoyed the Friday fresh pasta. Other travelers mentioned the "coziness" of the bathroom. It is a "one-butt" space, but since I was solo, that wasn't an issue.

I enjoyed the hotel, it was our first time staying here. The main issue I had was the flushing of toilets from rooms next door and above, they are really noisy and kept us awake during the night. Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful
