We stayed there over the Memorial Day weekend and were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were nice and clean and lacked that stale hotel room smell. The bed was easily the most comfortable bed ever! Staff was super nice and treated us like we were the only guests there and it was their primary goal to make us happy. There were a few areas that need a little updating but they are doing that. Pool area was nice. I felt more relaxed there than at any other hotel pools. There was decent music, not too loud, not too quiet. The bar was open with real fruit in water to give it a little taste and !!! they don't charge you for it. We enjoyed it at the pool and in the lobby when we decided to explore the place a bit.
I can't say anything bad about this place except that parking is a pain in the neck! It's crowded and expensive but we were pleasantly surprised when we found out the parking fee was included in the cost of the room. But I got the impression it's not that way for everyone because the attendant asked us if it was included, we didn't know, he checked for us, it was, everything was cool.If you decide to stay here, you might want to check on that. Or, if you prefer, there is also valet parking for a nominal charge.
If I'm in Tampa again overnight, will I stay here? Probably. It was a good value for the money, we had no complaints, everyone was nice, everything was clean. They are in the process of updating some areas of the hotel which is more than I can say for some places I've had to stay!
So, I highly recommend this hotel. :o)
