“Conference Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Overall the hotel was located close to airport. The room was clean and quiet. The hotel does have a contracted shuttle service to and from the airport. The bar was cozy and the wait staff was friendly. The food at the conference was above average. The layout of the hotel was easy to navigate.

This is an ideal location for downtown area. Lots of good restaurants. Staff was excellent and always there to help. The meeting rooms were excellent and the food they served during our conference was excellent.

Very helpful staff, very nice hotel... it was remodeled over the last few years, as i stayed here in 2010 for the bar exam... It is definitely even nicer now! Beds were clean and incredibly comfortable, great amenities, room view included the bay, and the Hilton is friendly to government/military discounts! Walking distance to a slew of great places to eat, and a nearby CVS. I recommend this hotel.

My family came to Tampa for a wedding & this was the designated hotel. It was an above average experience beginning with a clean room and bathroom. Clean white linens. Crisp smell. Good value for the money ($116). No problems. Breakfast on Sunday on the way out was awesome.

We had 40+ blocked rooms for guests attending my daughter's wedding plus the wedding party. The personnel here is outstanding, meeting our every need with pleasant, reassuring friendliness. Particularly helpful was Bell Captain Antonio-he is a real asset to the Hilton.
My singular complaint is that the bathrooms are very small and not configured for sharing.
Excellent restaurant, bar and gift shop plus Starbucks.

I work right next to the Hilton & was initially intimidated by the city quick paced flow of people coming through.
Trust me, don't be fooled! The Starbucks barista's are ready to serve AND humor you with the nicknames you put on the coffees.
I just got initiated into happy hour at the Hilton bar with the girls for happy hour. 1/2 off champagne and friendly faces?! Win win in my book.
Try one or the other-everyone will one will know your name by the end of the day, everyone will know your name.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about the Hilton Tampa Downtown. I cannot agree with you more. The barista's in Starbucks are super. I don't know how they do it. Next time you are in the hotel, try and find either myself (Randy Kuiken) or Beth Muzik. We would love to meet you. Sounds like we will see you again!

We stayed at the Hilton for a weekend for a conference and can not say enough how well we were treated. Everyone from the front desk, to the bell man, to the lounge. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious. When in the lounge ask for Michael, he we fantastic and had great sense of humor. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. When checking out, our room rate was incorrect on our bill, we reserved although a travel company at a special rate, they corrected it immediately without question. If you plan a trip to downtown Tampa, you can not go wrong with this Hotel!
