“very brief visit to Tampa/St Pete”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

I was in Tampa/St Pete for just under 40 hours, which may influence my opinions. The hotel seemed distant from anything to which I might walk, making me feel a touch confined or limited to using a cab. The lobby, while very efficient, seemed rather impersonal..The walk around the water feature in back was SPECTACULAR. Restaurant was very good, especially the mustard encrusted Ahi Tuna, which was cooked perfectly....the room was very comfortable and esthetically attractive, but the walls seemed a bit thin and certainly there was more noise from the hall than I had anticipated...all in all however, a very nice and pleasant hotel in which to spend too brief a period of time....

Room Tip: ask to be on the side opposite the entrance - the view of the water feature/lake is wonderful and pe...

Easy to find iwith good free parking and wifi. This hotel is well located for conferences and although not the best location for sightseeing either of Tampa, St Petersburg or Clearwater, it's really good for visiting all three. The fountain at the entrance is excellent, the walkways and lake at the rear really good and the rooms and bed fine. Reception staff very good and all in all, this is a safe bet for somewhere to stay. The bar and restaurant looked appealing but were untried during this visit.Our room had a king bed, separate lounge and balcony overlooking the pool, lake and walkways. But, and this hotel is not alone in this respect, the balconies were not kept clean enough. It's a good space and much appreciated but it's a shame you need to be careful where you touch. It's a small point and one I'm sure will be addressed as this hotel is clearly well managed.

We liked htis hotel. While we generally like to stay in the city, this place was close enoughj and located on a pretty walk around. It was very clean ( a major concern of mine)and a very comfortable kingsize bed. Would stay here again.

As my company's event coordinator, I've worked with many hotels throughout Florida and can without hesitation say that the sales and catering teams at the Hilton Carillon Park are second-to-none. I've used them for event functions and sleeping rooms, and they exceed my expectations every time. The hotel itself is beautiful, the sleeping rooms are clean and attractive, and the food/beverage service is fantastic. During my most recent visit, I had lunch at the hotel's restaurant, Luna. Wonderfully fresh salad bar with different pasta salads and hot soups, and outstanding service. The food was excellent - I wish I hadn't been in such a hurry because I would've gone back for seconds! I highly recommend this hotel for business travelers and anyone looking for a terrific experience.

I came for business meeting and find the hotel and surroundings very beautiful.
I was upgraded to a suite at the fourth floor. It was really nice and spacious. It was the kind of place that you wish you can come back with your wife...
Strongly recommended!

Spent 4 nights at the hotel (on business). The front desk staff were always very pleasant to deal with. The room was large, clean and very comfortable! Free WiFi on the property (from being outside on the patio, in the restaurant & in room!) Had a fridge in the room. Dinners at the onsite restaurant 'Luna' were absolutely fantastic - great staff & real variety on the menu! The hotel is right on the boardwalk around Lake Carillon - which provided a great end of day location for a walk and some fresh air, even in this "industrial" area. Having their free airport shuttle to Tampa airport - HUGE convenience (always ensure you book it!)

I've stayed here probably 20+ times and found it to be consistently enjoyable. The front desk staff is efficient and friendly. The rooms are large, clean and well appointed. Equipment is all free to use in the business center. Gym is open 24 hours. Good food in the restaurant and the executive lounge offers a good breakfast buffet too.

The only drawback would be for leisure travellers this is not an ideal location to see St. Pete, but if you need to be near Carrillon Park, this is THE place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony facing the pool
