“Better rent a car”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Being an "Airport Hotel" I thought this hotel would have frequent shuttle service. It didn't in my case. I had to rent a taxi to get me to the hotel. Then when I needed to go to a nearby business the hotel said it was against their policy to drive over 5 miles. I must have needed to go 5.1 miles. There was not a doorman or concierge to help me get a taxi. It took 30 minutes for my taxi to arrive and I was late for my meeting. All I ask for is a decent night stay and transportation options if staying near the hotel. Everything else about this hotel was uneventful and uninspiring.

Dear Business_Travelor:

Please accept our sincerest apologies for the miscommunication of what our shuttle service provides. Our shuttle departs every 30 minutes on the hour and half hour for the airport (5:00AM to 1:30AM) businesses/restaurants, etc within a 3 mile radius of the hotel. I have reviewed with our hotel team the accurate hotel shuttle information so that they don't misinform any of our guests in the future. Thank you for your feedback and again, I am truly sorry for the inconvenience you experienced with our shuttle service.

Sincerely,
Marcia Dmochowski
General Manager

Stayed as it was next to the airport, pickup was non existent from the hotel after two phone calls, taxi ride was refunded and was made up for by the hotel. Executive room was large and clean as usual, the executive lounge was small compared to others but had all you needed. Overall a good place to stay.

I travel to Hilton's frequently all over the USA.
This particular hotel was not my favorite although it would not prevent me from staying again.
I would suggest closer attention to room details by management.
The hotel has very friendly staff who are accommodating and the Calamari at the lobby bar was excellent.
Overall it is a good hotel for it's price although I will be more precise about my room choice on my next visit.

Room Tip: I would select a higher room if possible as outside noise can be an issue. I had a end corridor roo...

New job training has put in Tampa for 11 weeks (off and on) and my home away from home has become this Hilton. It doesn't have the amenities of other 5-star spots I've stayed at, but this Hilton meets all the criteria: clean, comfy rooms and very good customer service. Everyone at the front desk is always going out of their way to satisfy requests. The shuttle drivers Mike, Mike, and Rich are always helpful getting around and can offer some comps at certain restaurants. The concierge level is small but effective for a quick bite and Ben pours a stiff drink with a big smile. I love being home, but this Hilton is making it easy to be away for a while.

Room Tip: Anything numbered over 12 will be farther away from the elevators.

I travel quite a bit for work and typically airport hotels are not the greatest. I was very pleasantly surprised with this hotel. The room was very clean (I can be a bit of a clean freak) and there was none of that moldy smell that I have found to be quite common in many hotels in Florida (not surprised with the humidity level, but still unpleasant). The bathroom was spotless, everything was in working condition. I had a great night's rest there as it was extremely quiet. Not sure what type of soundproofing they had but I didn't hear a sound. The bed was comfortable and the location is perfect. The staff was somewhat typical in that it was hit or miss; the person who greeted me on arrival wasn't the friendliest, (room wasn't ready when I arrived, but I arrived early so my fault) but the person who actually checked me in was very friendly. All staff in the restaurant were very pleasant. Overall, my stay was very pleasant and I would suggest it to others.
