Despite having record low temperatures in Tampa during our visit, we found this to be a warm and welcoming hotel. In fact, during our stay the heater in our room stopped working and Maintenance came by to replace it within minutes.
The pros were the friendliness of the staff, the quick access to the highways, the beaches and downtown Tampa, and proximity to the airport. The cons were that nothing is walking distance except one restaurant and a small convenience store. There was a nice complimentary breakfast.
The only dings we would give the hotel were that the vending machines were empty for days, and the front desk should have been staffed with more than one person when the hotel was full. Otherwise it was quiet and comfortable with a nice view of the Bay.
