Great hotel!
Great service, excellent and clean rooms, wonderful staff. Will be back there again - that is for sure. This is our hotel in Tampa. We wish every hotel is like this one. Hats off to people running this one!

I was impressed on how comfortable the suite was. We were a total of 6 adults and 1 child. The king beds were very comfortable. The sofa bed is what it is...a sofa bed. The hotel room was large and comfy, with a small kitchenette area, with refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave. There were a total of 3 LCD TV's - perfect for different tastes. However, the living room area was large enough for us 7 to enjoy a pay-per-view family movie. Two A/C's were a blessing.

The hotel staff was very nice. We arrived at 1am to a smiling reception staff. They even put out complementary ice cream every night. The housekeeping staff was accommodating to our requests for extra towels and blankets. One of the ladies even came out after us when we forgot a phone plug.

Although there is a complementary breakfast, I'd pass on the eggs. Have breakfast at nearby Panera or Dunkin Donuts.

The location was really good - just 5 minutes from I-75.

Stayed at this hotel based on reviews. The reviews are right. Terrific service. Helpful and cheerful staff. Free ice cream every night. We were offered bottled water when we checked in.

The rooms are what you'd expect from a Holiday Inn. So don't go in expecting a 4 star hotel. Having said that, the property and rooms are maintained extremely well. Everything was clean. They take good care of the property.

Bottom line - Definitely worth checking out. I have no qualms about staying here again!

Based on the more than raving reviews here, I chose this hotel for an overnight stay on our road trip. And the expectations were even surpassed. From the complimentary beer (and another one!) at the checkin, free ice cream for the kids, a perfectly temperated and clean pool to the very friendly and competent front desk, the hotel can match up with 4 and 5 stars I've been to easily. A huge flat TV on the room, fast internet and a clean bathroom completed the excellent impression. Finally, the breakfast was the best I ever had at a holiday inn express - given the presence of "real" dishes, a wide choice of tea and juices and overall very good quality and freshness of the food, this by far overexcels the usual express start breakfast.

My family including my 80 yr. old father had a wonderful time at Holiday Express New Tampa. We bought the package for Busch Gardens and Adventure Island. We booked the two bedroom suite. Everyone in our party of six had plenty of room to relax and have privacy. The beds were super comfortable, the kitchen area was very helpful, separate Tv's, and towels and blankets delivered to our door was impressive. We did not have any time to enjoy the pool in our three day stay is our only regret. The breakfasts were awesome and icecream provided at night was a treat that our three young adults enjoyed. We will stay their again in the future when we get down in that area. Too bad it is not on the beach!!! It was a very classy hotel with wonderful employees!!!

For the price, which was $100/night, the place was absolutely incredible. The service was impeccable - a welcoming drink when you come in, ice cream in the evening and a full breakfast in the morning. The room was huge and our king-size bed was the most comfortable both of us had ever slept in. Even the pillows were super comfy, coming in two types - soft and firm.

The only thing that could be considered negative about the hotel is its location - it's pretty far from downtown Tampa and even farther from the beach. However, we came to Tampa to go canoeing at the Hillborough River and Canoe Escape was about five minutes away.

Our family has stayed in a lot of hotels and this was the best family value by far. Extremely clean. Staff was exceptionally nice. Very nice free breakfast, free ice cream at night, free drink at check-in. Kid friendly. Really a tremendous value.
