“Convenient to all of Downtown Tampa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This trip was for business but we stay here for leisure also. This hotel is just off Ashely in Downtown about a block from the Performing Arts Center. It is also convenient to all of downtown including walking along the river or visiting the Courthouse.

Service is always the best. Staff are very friendly and professional. Evening gatherings are interesting and fun and the breakfast is very good. You always meet a variety of people.

We have stayed in this hotel numerous times when visiting in Tampa and have always had a wonderful experience. It was not the case on our last stay. I will list all the problems from A to Z. First of all, we booked our reservation back in October of 2012 for a two-bedroom suite as there were going to be 4 of us. When I called the morning of the stay since we were going to have a late arrival, I was told they overbooked and we possibly wouldn't get the 2 bedroom suite but we would get 2 rooms. I told them we had to have that suite as one in our party (our daughter) has a visual problem and can't see when it gets dark and would need to have help from an adult in our party. (Our granddaughter was the fourth person with us.) I called again at 7:30 p.m. to make sure we would get our room and was put on hold for a long time. I was told again we wouldn't get the suite as they had some people who had arrived and booked for 3 weeks and decided to let them stay and not honor our suite reservation. I told them we had to have this suite because of our daughter. Finally, they agreed to put us in a handicap suite. All ok, until we checked in and entered the room. No wastebasket in one of the bathrooms, clock didn't work in one bedroom, black dot stains on the wallpaper next to the kitchen sink, doors under the sink were broken and no shelf underneath for cleaning supplies, the carpet didn't lay flat throughout the suite, carpet was filthy by the front door, ice maker didn't work, sliding closet door jammed in bedroom, a shefl in the bedroom closet broke and fell down and the worst was when we saw a roach crawling on the bar area when we were eating breakfast. I will have to say when we checked out the manager was very nice when I told her all this. She is new and is trying to get things done and I trust that she will. We are members of the Marriott Rewards and hope we will get to enjoy staying in this hotel again someday.

Room Tip: I wouldn't choose this hotel for at least a years until all their problems are taken care of.

Not very clean and not very comfortable. Don't even consider sleeping on the god-awful sofa beds. It was absolutely unsleepable. The linen for the sofa bed was dirty - the blanket was at least 10 years old, dingy, and had alot of long blonde hair stuck in it. The sheets were not pressed and I don't think they had been laundered. Both chairs had rips in the upholstery. Carpet threadbare in many places. The parking is VERY limited and $11 a day. We got stuck parking 2 blocks away. The Airport Shuttle is also not free. It cost $10-$15 a person. The complementary breakfast was really very good and the free shuttle to the Cruise ships was fine. Nice kitchenette. Nice pool.

Overall would not stay here again and would not recommend.

Room Tip: I would closely inspect the room and the linens before accepting a room here.

Very close to the airport. They offer free breakfast on the weekends. During the week you can enjoy at least 2 free dinners. There was a small pool and hot tub, and a small basketball court which I thought was a nice touch. The free breakfast was really good & a huge variety. The room was nice and you have a sliding glass door that opens to a very tiny balcony you could maybe stand on, but it allows you to get fresh air - which I always really like in a hotel. We had no problem parking on the grounds around the hotel.

Our family recently stayed here with our middle school son's lacrosse team. The suites were very clean and the staff was VERY attentive. The kids liked the heated pool, hot tub and the small basketball court. The location was also great right of 275 and close to nice restaurants to walk to including Taps. Would absolutely stay there again. Breakfast was fairly average with make your own waffles but they were kind enough to allow our group to use the nearby meeting space for our meals at no additional charge.

Parking situation is annoying if they are full...you have to park in a garage 2 blocks away. It just feels outdated when you step inside. The outdoor pool area\patio is nice. The room was just alright. I kept finding hairs though...under the fitted sheet, on the hand towels, in the tub...there were also cigarettes on the balcony, not from us....The girl working the evening shift on NYE was really nice and helpful, along with the engineer.
BUT! overall it was satisfactory for a one night stay.

Clean everything, same art in every room, felt safe and secure and all that. Good time. Fitness center is decent, I liked the basketball court and pool. Clean and had more than a treadmill, which was nice. Women at the desk were friendly. Only four because it lacked personality and there was absolutely no excuses for being even a minute late on breakfast. It was gone exactly at 930 am. Reasonable and all, but a boy can dream, eh?

Room Tip: Get a high room
