We have visited this hotel several times now and it is always a favorite. The rooms are Spacious, clean and well maintained, the staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast and free drinks and snacks reception in the evening are a fantastic addition. The hotel is ideally situated for the convention center and the arena and within walking distance... More

A beautiful property right downtown Tampa by the waterfront. It was a busy weekend with three wedding parties staying there so the drive-up to the front doors were backed up but they found a place for us to park while we checked in and changed clothes before going to an engagement. The center of the hotel is an atrium open... More

This hotel has great rooms, great staff, and a great layout. The ability for diamond members to eat in a quiet place so they can work is also a great perk not offered at most Hilton properties. The one very big drawback at this property is the lack of elevator coordination, speed, and overall functionality. Each day required adding at... More

Bad stay for business. This is tucked down by the convention center and its a bit hard to get in and out of. This trip was especially challenging. 1. It's a 20-story hotel. Get a low floor. They only have two elevators for the public and ONE WAS DOWN, not working, for both days I was there. Loooooong waits. 2.... More

The hotel was right across from the Convention Center & with the cross over bridge directly from hotel to CC, It was a breeze getting there. The staff could not have been any more professional & accommodating. The room was great, housekeeping are so friendly. The Happy Hour was great and the breakfast is fabulous at this location. Fresh made... More

Great hotel, breakfast, and happy hour. Wish the snacks were more than chips and dip. Great location near downtown and the trolley. Great views of the bay from the upper levels. Really enjoyed the hotel as a whole.

I was planning a short weekend get away since we only live less than 25 miles away and I found this nice hotel that looked like it was close to everything downtown and it was reasonably priced. When I called the staff never asked me if I was attending the Anime convention, especially since I found out later they were... More

For the most part, our stay was overall very good. The AC however was unable to cool the room down - but that could be that we were on the 14th floor in the middle of July. Be sure to verify the breakfast times - the book in the room says it's open until 10:30 M-F, but in actuality, it... More

I couldn't dock the hotel for things that can be blamed on the sheer amount of people here for metrocon at the convention center. People watching in itself has been quite entertaining. The hotel is very clean, and surprising quiet on the upper levels. The pool wasn't too busy but is an odd shape. Skinny and long. Not the best... More
