This is an older Hotel in a convenient and active part of town. There was formerly a juice bar and fitness center on the rooftop. Things like this have been let go, due to harsh economic factors. One of the joys of Hotel Tampa is that it's staffed with 5 star hotel employees. Honestly, they could be beamed to work at any Hilton and they'd fall into place. There are or were several Tailors, Hair/Nail Salons, and elegant French Pastry type bakeries within blocks, often mixed in with street vendors. The Subway station is close to Hotel Tampa, and there is an Italian Restaurant and small Bar on first floor near Front Desk. This is a fun part of town, but dress down. No fancy watches or sunglasses, walk deliberately, don't speak English on the street, be back in Hotel before dark. Use only Taxi's called by the Hotel.
