Hotel was a bit outdated. One elevator was down when we were there and the others made not so comforting noises when working. Room was fine, but old and outdated. Several of the floors are u of Tampa dorm rooms, so there was a constant stream of "youth" walking through the doors - constant smell of cigarette smoke outside because of them. Even though there were patio tables outside there was no place to sit because of these students. The front desk staff was fantastic. Very informative and helpful. The free shuttle service to downtown was great. We were in town for a hockey game and the hotel wasn't a bad walk from the forum.
