The Hilton Tampa Downtown was everything I expected and more. The staff were all TOP-NOTCH. From about an hour before arrival when we called to check on our room, front desk person Melanie was very pleasant and helpful on the phone. At check in, front desk staffer Xena was very kind and friendly, putting us up in a higher room overlooking the pool area, with a view of the bay in the distance. Parking specialist Brie was also very outgoing and personable in getting us set up in self-park. Even the gift shop cashier was great!... The room itself was perfect-- two double beds, VERY nicely appointed, well cleaned. The room came with a mini-fridge you can fill with your own items, and the showers have extremely good water pressure-- something you don't always see in hotels. The outside pool area is very nice-- 5th floor, with plenty of chairs, clean towels, a decent size pool and a hot tub. It's well landscaped with palm trees and shrubs, with views of surrounding skyscrapers. There is also a fitness center adjacent to the pool.... Self-park is a surface lot adjacent to the hotel, but costs an extra $16 a day-- a little less than valet. It was more than a little packed while we were there.... The hotel has plenty of ballrooms and meeting rooms on its second level. Both the 1st floor main entry and the second level common areas are covered by a small atrium skylight... There is a restaurant, bar, gift shop, and a connected Starbucks on the first floor, and plenty of computer stations (with printers) for use by patrons in the lobby. All in all, I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel.
