My husband had a conference to attend at the Tampa Convention Center and chose this hotel as it was in Ybor City (for the neighborhood's quirky personality) and it was much better priced than the convention center hotels. I thought that we might be underwhelmed, but our king room was stylish and spacious, with a desk and swivel chair and an easy chair with an ottoman. The hotel has recently undergone a renovation and the interiors are quite modern and stylish. The garden courtyard and pool area were well maintained. When our friends came for cocktails from their pricy downtown hotel across from the convention center, they were quite jealous of our accommodations! The service was also terrific. Roxy was delightful as she served the breakfast...the omelettes were definitely better than I expected. We enjoyed strolling around Ybor City and were quite taken with the place. Our stay definitely exceeded my expectations.
