We stayed 3 nights while attending a convention. It's a beautiful location on Tampa Bay directly across from the convention center and main TECO Trolley stop. The staff were very attentive, especially the concierge (Robin), who booked a nice variety of dinner reservations for us and arranged to have a fridge brought up to our room. The room's existing fridge/minibar had supposedly been converted to just maintain 50 degrees, but I don't think it did anything and should just be removed or go back to regular fridges in the rooms. Parking is expensive ($22/day) via valet in a secured lot across the street. We just left it there for the duration of our stay. There is a very nice outdoor pool on the 3rd floor. Daily wifi is expensive ($15) but was comp'd as part of our convention registration. My husband slept through the fire alarm Friday night around midnight, which must have been a false alarm, but I wonder how the hotel would have managed an evacuation if it was necessary?
