My partner and I were in Tampa to celebrate New Year's eve from a cold northern state (to remain unnamed :).
We arrived late in the evening so it was dark and a bit secluded as others have mentioned, but isn't that what you want in a hotel? Off the main street a little, a bit quieter, etc? With GPS we found the hotel easily enough.
There is plenty of parking with no charge definitely a plus.
The lobby is very nice, wide, open and everything is easily navigable
Check-in was easy and fast, but the clerk, while not rude, was not the most friendly.
I believe the room service was available up until 11:00. We took advantage because there were no non-fast food restaurants easily available it seemed and we were tired from our travels.
I had the BBQ chicken quesadilla and other half had a cheeseburger + fries. Both were acceptable and not 'too' expensive.
The room itself was in great condition, the balcony large and inviting with a view of the pool (closed for service???). The TV was a large flat screen, modern and served the purpose fine. The beds were excellent. Showering was a bit of a negative as there was no ventilation so steam built up in one of the largest bathrooms I've ever had access to in any hotel.
Overall, the biggest drawback was the fact it was not close to downtown and required at minimum a 20-25 minute drive as well as being a 45 minute drive to Clearwater.
Bottom line for Sheraton East Tampa: Nice hotel, good rate and what you'd expect from a Sheraton. Clean, comfortable and a bit luxurious.
