My husband and I stayed here pre-cruise. We got in at about 6pm on a Saturday night, and were able to check in quickly. Our room was on the 13th floor (thankfully I am not superstitious). The room was great, updated and spacious. Everything was clean and met our expectations. We enjoyed some free beverages at the managers reception and then did some take out for dinner (the restaurant in the hotel is a little pricy and we did not see many restaurants nearby). This hotel is very quiet and we both had a great night sleep. When you step outside of the room you can hear what's going on in the lobby. However, with the door closed we never felt as though the hotel was noisy and I am a very light sleeper, I would have noticed. We enjoyed a great made to order breakfast in the morning as well as a view of our cruise ship from our room (which was a surprise to us). Check out was no problem and we were able to catch a shuttle to the cruise port. Only thing about the shuttle, it fills up fast and is first come first serve (assuming fellow riders are honest of course). I over heard one couple saying they had booked a reservation for the shuttle but apparently that did not matter in the end because several people loaded the bus before them. If you are cruising I would recommend a taxi, it will probably cost about the same (the shuttle was $12 for two of us) and will probably be less of a hassle. Overall this hotel was great and fully met our expectations. If we ever cruise out of Tampa again we will be sure to stay here!
