Spent week during an event at the Convention Center and hotel is actually connected to the Convention Center by a walkway bridge. Hotel staff was fantastic and the facility is very nice to include the Managers Reception nightly with an abundance of drinks.
Location is approx a 5 to 7 minute walk to quite a few number of restaurants on the waterfront and in the surrounding area. The Ybor area is also a great place to go eat and the Trolly will take you to the area and there is a stop right in front of the hotel to catch it.
I'd stay here again given the location, amenities and proximity to the Convention Center.
