I thought this hotel had friendly staff and was a clean property. However, I disagree with the outstanding reviews given by some for several reasons.
First of all, I found the location to be unsatisfactory as the homeless people, prostitutes and unsavory individuals roaming around on Westside to be an issue. Also, I didn't appreciate the fact that there were strip clubs and the Tampa Housing Authority all within walking distance.
This hotel is grouped with a few newer hotels about a block from the area that I mentioned, but I would have preferred to be an an area without those issues.
There are nice things about this hotel. I thought it was clean, and we stayed here free with Hilton Honors points so you can't beat that. The rooms are a good size for the price, and have a small kitchen. In addition, the staff was extremely nice. They are a friendly bunch.
I stayed at the Hilton Grand Vacations Club in Hawaii right before this hotel --- so it's hard to give this property more than a 3 rating after being in such a top notch facility prior. However, I think this hotel is great for those wanting to stay near the airport. It's certainly clean and comfortable --- but not a five star property in my opinion. It's a good hotel --- but not GREAT.
