“Great location and friendly service”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

The location is very good. You can easily walk to the heart of Ybor City and the trolley station. The trolley was very convenient; but doesn't run Sunday morning. When we asked the hotel staff for a taxi on Sunday morning, they offered us their free shuttle downtown.

The people working at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. They gave us great tips about the city.

We did have some hiccups when we arrived. The first room we were given had a horrible mildew odor and my husband's allergies went haywire. The hotel gladly gave us a new room, but the A/C didn't work in that room. The third room was fine. The hotel was helpful, but it was frustrating to move to 3 rooms at 9:30pm at night.

Love this place! I just hate to pay for parking at a hotel where I am a guest. It is centally located for a great night out to a concert or just visiting the Ybor City area & close to a lot of the sites as well as the streetcar stops. It would also pay for them to open the bar earlier than 5PM & to stay open later than 10PM. The pool also closes too early.

Great place, great location to YBOR City, friendly staff, nice hotel, reasonable price. Enjoyed the room very much. My only dissapointment was that the staff cleaned out my refrigerator of my drinks while i was there. I was disappointed when I went for my caffiene free diet coke!

I stayed here for a long weekend to tour Ybor. I had not visited in quite sometime (2008) and never got a chance to walk around and hit the cigar stores. This hotel is located smack in the middle of Historical Central Ybor! It was nice to see that the area had been cleaned up, and there were many more restaurants, shops, and of course, cigar shops with people rolling fresh works of art!

First of all, the staff at the HGI was very friendly and helpful. They answered every question as well as provided information about transportation, restaurants, etc. The girl running the breakfast did a fantastic job and had the best personality. Overall, the property was very clean, quiet, safe, and couldn't be better located! If you are a cigar afficionado who wants to experience Ybor....this is your hotel!

Welcoming and friendly service. One complaint was taken care of immediately and we were given complimentary cooked to order breakfasts. We were also treated to a lovely and unexpected reception complete with entertainment. The location was excellent. A short ride to the Straz theatre and nearby good restaurants.

I would definately recommend this hotel. Walking distance to anything and everything in Ybor. I will be staying here again and again. Comfortable room, great bed and linens. Fresh smelling room and very quiet.
