Ok........I was there when the hotel was full for a concert at the Forum which is next door as is the conference center. It is a great location if you are attending these venues. The hotel did battle to run smoothly due to the volume of people arriving for the concert and leaving the next door. Credit to the staff ( kitchen, valet, house keeping). More front desk staff are required for peak arrival times. There were a few hiccups for example no towels or coffee...but the lapse was dealt with quickly and smoothly. The lifts are not great at peak times so be prepared to wait. Now....the price....I appreciate the hotel is in a prime location, in a major city and perfectly placed. Room prices as with other hotels in the area are set to maximize the benefit of location. It is not really fair to compare the price to another Embassy Suite like the one on the I95 at Savannah but there you get a better facility for a third of the price. In Tampa you pay for the location which I would happily do again given the location, room size for a family of four and the excellent buffet breakfast included in the price.
