We stayed at the hotel for a long weekend while we were in town to attend a family function. We chose the hotel based on a convenient location and family recommendations, and were extremely pleased with the choice. We had been expecting a generic hotel experience, but we were pleasantly surprised and our expectations were exceeded. There are several hotels in this area, and this one appears to be the best choice. The hotel is right on the water, with the boats docked just outside the outdoor eating and bar areas, creating a perfect atmosphere to enjoy a drink or a meal, or even to go for a walk after dinner. The lobby is gorgeous and welcoming, and it feels much like a high-end luxury hotel, encouraging you to linger over drinks or a nice meal. The room was a nice size, and the bed was extremely comfortable; the bathroom was adequate but very clean. The spa is also quite nice and the spa experience also delivered more than expected. The location is perfect -- a quick, $25 cab from the airport, and many restaurants and attractions are within walking distance. The trolley also stops outside the front door, so we were very comfortable without a car. We highly recommend the hotel and will make this our first choice when we return to Tampa.
