We stayed here while in town for 98 Rock Fest. The location is great. Walking distance to Channelside Plaza, the Florida Aquarium and SOHO.
The staff was friendly and helpful in all areas of the hotel. The room was large and we had a great view of downtown Tampa.
Lots of places to walk from this hotel including Channelside, Davis Island or downtown Tampa.
Cabs lineup right outside the hotel so it is easy to get a ride to SOHO or Ybor. SOHO is less than a 1.5 mile walk so you can just walk if the weather is nice and you are heading to a bar or place to eat.
The Trolley's restaurant delivered to the pool or it was just a quick trip down to get a drink.
Elevators can be a little slow, but not uncommon for a hotel with 20 floors. We would stay here again if coming to town for a concert, convention or cruise.
