Internet speed was great, the best we've encountered. Suite was clean, had a small kitchenette with electric stovetop. There is very little counter space so I would opt to tAke out the stovetop or put up a collapsible shelf. There are no utensils or pots or pans so you have to bring what you need. Nice to have a sofa... More

Easy check in, accommodating host. Very convenient to all S. Tampa activities. Clean and well maintained appearance. This location puts you close to many fine restaurants, small drive to aquarium History Center, Children's museum, and about 15 min from Busch Gardens, Lowry Park. Easy access to get to the many Gulf beaches and local universities. This is really close to... More

Everything was good. The only thing I would suggest is the breakfast. A like bit less carbs would be perfect.
