We stayed 3 nights for an Army reunion. Room was nicely appointed & overlooked an inlet where we could watch boaters, kayaks, etc. Beautiful at night, too. Hotel breakfast buffet was good (a bit over-priced at $19.95, but a better value than ordering off menu) and staff members were friendly. House-keeping was very responsive - gave a Very Good instead of Excellent because we had to ask for clean towels one day--think they forgot us, but they brought them within about 5 minutes. Tampa Convention Center was just across bridge - nice area for tourists.
