Stayed here for a couple nights for a conference being held here. Nice new, clean facilities, a rather over-the-top lobby, nice location on the inter-coastal waterway. Our room was really nice, had plug-in cable internet for $10 for our entire stay (3 days/2 nights)--was some kind of special. There was also free wireless throughout the common spaces in the hotel that was extremely useful.
The concierge kept trying to convince us to go to reeeeeally upscale restaurants for dinner, which I suppose is her job, but she wasn't very helpful in helping us find something closer to our price range.
It was rainy while we were there, but the pool is on the 3rd floor roof and looked nice (if small). The gym was very nice. Decent number of cardio machines, TVs and plug-in audio on the machines themselves, and plug-ins for ipods on the machines.
Really no complaints about this hotel except that there's not much nearby to do (more Tampa's fault than the hotel's). There's a tapas restaurant about a 10 minute walk away that is NOT particularly good. Don't recommend that.
