We found this hotel a convenient location for exploring Tampa's waterfront. Riverwalk, the Trolley and the Streetcar are right outside the door. As well, there are some nice restaurants nearby - we had excellent sushi at Jackson's Bistro while sitting outside enjoying the view. I think we got one of the nicer rooms, on the 19th floor at the west end. It had views both east and west with very comfortable double beds. As Hilton Gold members we also got free internet and bottled water. We did find the breakfast buffet got jammed up a bit but the hotel had a server dish out the hot items which sped that process up. Be aware that the Trolley does not run at convenient times for tourists (6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.). Also downtown Tampa really empties out and is quiet after all the office workers go home. We are not sure how comfortable we would be walking some of the streets after dark (and we live in downtown Toronto!). Minor quibbles with the hotel: the in-room safe was locked when we checked in, the clock was still showing the old time before the time change in March (and is impossible to figure out how to change). Although we did not hear our next door neighbours when they were in their suite, we could hear them loud and clear in the hallway.
