Which Hotel? Please HELP!

Which Hotel? Please HELP!

I am trying to decide on a hotel close to the port in Tampa. The Marriott Waterside (but I think that the dates I'm staying are sold out) or the Hyatt or the Sheraton or the Embassy Suites.

I am going on my own and meeting friends there in April. It kills me to pay over $300 a night for decent hotel staying single. Alot of the reviews for these hotels are very mixed. I don't need anything 5-star. Just alot of the reviews I see, are the hotels are dirty and or overpriced?

Any suggestions would be very helpful :) Thank you!

The Embassy Suites is brand new, so it should be very clean and nice. I believe most of the negative reviews seem to be about troubles with their valet parking.

I believe the Sheraton has been recently remodeled.

I had some friends stay at the Hyatt before taking the Florida Bar and they had no complaints. Of course they really only slept and showered there.

Some other hotels you could check out are the Westin Harbour Island. I had a friend stay there recently and she enjoyed her stay.

Also downtown are Residence Inn and Courtyard Marriott which may be a little less expensive.
