We stayed here based on TripAdvisor reviews and the proximity to Raymond James Stadium and were not disappointed. I requested a water view with my reservation and when I checked in, I was upgraded to a water view suite. The suite was very nice, which included a sitting area with a sofa and chair. The hotel is convenient and although it is close to the airport, we never heard any planes. My only complaint is that the front desk clerk in the evening was more concerned with getting off than giving good information. I requested the shuttle Saturday night to go to the game Sunday and when we went down to catch it, he had overbooked it - only taking room numbers and not the actual number of guests. Overall, the good definitely outweighed the bad and the price was very good especially with USF and the Bucs having games that weekend (but try to book at least 2 weeks in advance; the rates went up significantly with a shorter time).
