“MJ Wrenn - Hotel & Staff Are Awesome!!!!!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

This Hotel and Staff are so Awesome! I started my stay on August 1, 2013. I'm here for a long stay due to purchasing a home. The hotel is very clean and the housekeeping staff is awesome. Even though this is a national chain, it is run like a family hotel....It feels like a family run bed and breakfast. The manager of the hotel Ms. Deidre is amazing! All of her support staff are amazing. They meet and greet you everyday and they get to know each and every guest staying at the hotel. Most major hotels make you feel like a reservation number, I have traveled the world and stayed in a variety of hotels, this one makes you feel like home and make you feel welcome. The staff makes you feel like that they do apperciate your business. They have gotten to know me and my family on a personal basis and they are just awesome. I consider this THE BEST HOTEL in downtown Tampa and Tampa for that matter. I recommend this hotel to everyone.....:)

The hotel is in a great location that is convenient to the expressway and all the downtown amenities. Hotel staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. The rooms are big, the bed is super comfy and the parking is perfect!

This very well located in downtown Tampa, very clean and tidy.
They have a varied breakfast, nothing is missing. But they have one person to meet all the guests at breakfast time, so the poor lady can not yet.
They also have Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, Dinner for all guests, always organize different meals, they serve wine, beer and juice. The community pool is very big and very clean. Has laundry the way that we use. DO NOT use the parking that they ofresen is expensive and in the street free parking available from 6 pm to 8 am, the weekend is free and when you cash out 75 cents.
Esta muy bien localizado en el downtown de Tampa, muy limpio y ordenado.
Tienen un desayuno muy variado, no falta nada. Pero tienen una sola persona para atender a todos los invitados a la hora del desayuno, asi que la pobre señora no puede con todo.
Tambien tienen los lunes, martes y miercoles, cena para todos huespedes, siempre organizan diferentes comidas, te sirven vino, cerveza y jugo. La picina es bien grande y muy limpia. Tiene laundry que sea de paso lo usamos. NO usen el parqueo que ellos ofresen es caro y en la calle se puede estacionar gratis desde las 6 de la tarde a las 8 de la mañana, los fin de semana es gratis y cuandon cobra sale 75 centavos.

This hotel is really well placed downtown. It is within a lot of things to walk to and see in Tampa. Luckily, I did not encounter any parking problems as some other reviewers had mentioned. The room however was basic and comfortable. The furniture is well worn and some of it needs to be replaced. I posted a picture of the desk chair that was a little worse for wear. The hotel staff is kept pretty busy and seems to be a little overwhelmed by the number of people that come in and it can take a little while to get checked in and checked out.

Stayed two nights, nice clean good breakfast. Week night cocktail hour with food, beer wine and soda . Walked to nearby restaurants and transportation is provided for free to nearby places. Went to Busch Gardens needed transportation for 10, hotel went out of their way to set it up for a low fee! Everyone here is friendly will be back someday!
