This hotel has been completely restored and has a a lot of potential. We went to Tampa for a long weekend and had forgotten how much fun it can be. The location is good for visiting the Tampa Theater where you can take a tour. It is also good for visiting the Henry Plant Museum. There are a few restaurants near by but it is a little dark for walking in the evening.
There were no bell hops and the hotel restaurants were not serving lunch or dinner when we were there. The interior is beautiful and the rooms comfortable. It appeared that there was not enough business to keep some of the ammenities open which is a shame.
The parking is in the lot by the hotel and we did not have to pay which is a good thing in downtown Tampa.
