“Great Night in Tampa”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Very friendly hotel staff. Extremely comfortable and clean room. One negative is no free wifi in room. However, we did take advantage of the free business center for internet access. The breakfast was delicious with excellent service. The valet service was really quick even on a busy morning. This is a great hotel to stay in downtown Tampa.

Rude service at the front desk. Clean, boring rooms.

And the worst part was waking up to a room adjacent to me using the bathroom twice (very loudly), and mass toilet flushes. When does that happen at a hotel??

They couldn't get my reservation correct. No vent in bathroom causing extreme fogging. When door is opened, steam releases into room causing temperature changes. Daily charge for internet! What! Transportation to The Forum for graduation was a debacle. One teeny waste basket in the bathroom, none in the room by the desk. They were in WAY over their heads with everything. I'll NEVER go back.

This Hilton did not meet our expectations as the rooms was not cleaned and serviced well. All surfaces had a layer of dust and the furniture has stains. The bed linens were poor quality as well. I would not recommend staying here!

Greetings Janet S,

We sincerely apologize for your unsatisfactory experience at our hotel with the room not being cleaned. We know we did not meet your expectations and we can offer no excuse for what you described other than lack of attention to detail on our part. This is not our norm and we will address this with our Housekeeping team. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

We hope this isolated incident will not keep you from choosing our hotel in the near future; we would like for you to give us another opportunity.

I stayed here for business in Downtown Tampa. The hotel was very convenient, and I was able to walk to the deposition. I was also able to get a lot of work done in the room. The hotel was clean. It was kind of difficult getting around due to some renovations nearby, but it was good.

Well if you enjoyed it, you should return to this hotel. I could not believe it. My toilet was 4 inches away from the vanity and protruded mid-way into my sink. I had to stand sideways to brush my teeth.. and I am not a big person.

Room Tip: Make sure they do not put you in a room where the toilet is 4 inches away from the sink.

Internet is insane ($9/day/device), you can get it for free at a cheaper hotel. No washclothes in shower is apparently standard procedure. Not enough outlets in the room for 3 business travellers with computers, iPads, iPhones, etc. There were places they could have put outlets but did not. Staff was very helpful, all this is not their fault.
