The hotel was easy to find right off of the interstate. Right away we knew the area was nice, as there was a Maggiano's, P.F. Changs and other nice restaurants right across the street. Check in was a breeze, as was parking the car (we used the free, attached garage versus the pricey valet). The parking garage had an elevator that took you straight to the lobby.
Our room was on the 9th floor, looking out into the atrium (with offices on the other side). We ever managed to have a few people at their desk wave to us as we were going up the elevator!
The room was excellent, with very comfy beds, roomy bathroom, and flat-screen HD television. After remembering a few reviews about noise and the elevator, standing beside the door, I could hear the faint noise, but it was not an issue (and we were two doors down).
The roof top pool, as mentioned on here is no resort-style pool. It's very small, and the seating is very limited. It allowed us to cool off a bit, but not one that you could lay around all day.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice, 4-star hotel in Tampa!
