Good location and customer service
Location can't be beat, pool is nicer than embassy across street. Valet service is also way better than embassy....that's what I pay more for. AC never gets real cold for me...I stay here a lot when I attend hockey games...I always stay here or embassy across the street. I've been choosing Marriott because the valet for embassy is a zoo and takes forever when you try and leave in the morning but if Marriott doesn't fix their AC I'm gonna have to find something else.
they have just about all you need on site pool side bar, lobby bar, sports bar and grill that was able to get our home town games for us, upscale 4 star restaurant and an excellent spa... we went to Florida to hit the beech and found our selves struggling to find a reason to leave our hotel spa services were amazing cant say enough about the experience, do yourself a solid and book a message. no on site parking you are forced to valet your car for 24$ a day and neither our booking site nor the mariot site see it fit to mention that... that said the valet service was good and we never had to wait long for our car
I was in town for a concert at the Amalie Arena and didn't want to drive back to my home on the east Florida coast the same night. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and the room was great. I would stay there again. The usual downsides to a downtown hotel, like having to pay a lot for parking and no spots available in the valet lot. Also, the only way I could find to get from the part of the 3rd floor where the catwalk from the garage/City of Tampa building and the conference rooms were was to go down the escalator to the lobby and then take a second set of elevators to the guest rooms (I was on the 8th floor).
The Hotel staff was amazing.. Very polite and made sure our stay was as comfortable and easy going as possible. The room was also amazing!!! Very spacious and clean and very comfortable beds.. I loved my stay at the Hilton and will be making this hotel chain my #1 choice when vacationing. I loved everything!!
Very comfortable bed Some issues with the soundproofing of the rooms. A little noisy.
I had a short stay. The price was the main factor in my choice and the location near a conference at the Marriott. The view was very pleasant. I did not use any of the facilities so could not really rate this item. I suggest having a box NA for this circumstance. The mattresses are very soft. My experience is that good mattresses and hotel mattresses are firm. No vending machines on the floors. Water flow in the sink was very low. Shower produced huge volume, which wastes too much water. I suggest low flow shower heads, but it may be that guests like using floods of water when it's not their own. The cable TV lost the satellite connection, possibly due to a thunderstorm at that time.
Clean with the usual Westin standard amenities. The staff was mediocre at best, making you feel unimportant. This was a festival weekend but they allowed themselves to be lazy instead of working extra hard to please the customer. No attempt to accommodate room requests. Seemed like they hired temps from the holiday inn or something.
Location is fantastic. Great views. Not a heavenly bed at all. I remember what those beds are like and this was not it. It felt like a thin mattress. The carpet had large stains in a couple of areas.
Going from Denver to Tampa in December what is an important factor to a three day stay? Swimming in a heated outdoor pool as shown on the Westin website. We arrived on the third floor in our suits ready to swim only to find out the pool was under construction. The hotel claims the third party we booked with should have told us, they didn't. Neither did the front desk when we checked in. Very disappointed!
Looks very beautiful in common areas Lots of money for what you get and you have to pay extra to park which isn't included anywhere when you sign up as well as pay for wifi
The place wasn't clean, even after we complained the next day coffee stains were left on counter, a dirty glass with lipstick was just put on shelf. Also the plumbing was loud. There's no soundproofing, we could hear the person snoring in the next room. The manager did give us free breakfast which was nice but if I hadn't prepaid I'd have moved
The place was nice and weather was beautiful. Hotel room was spacious and clean. The view was wonderful and we didn't turn on the TV once because of the view and watching the cruise ships leave the harbor. Who doesn't have coffee downstairs?
Upscale, clean, friendly staff. Nothing was included. Had to pay an outrageous amount per day to park, internet was also a fee (two days with that fee is what I pay for a month of internet at home). I expected normal mark-ups for food and drinks but to pay that much for simple amenities which should be free was ridiculous. But I guess it was my fault for not checking on that; I've just never stayed at a hotel where that stuff wasn't included.. especially for the price of this hotel.
The hotel has many facilities. It was further from the center as we thought and because of the casino (we assumed) the public was quite elderly, which we had not expected of a Hardrock hotel. Also too bad the breakfast was not included even though the rate was quite high (189 USD excl VAT)
Parking was an issue as a guest of the hotel a $10 fee to park in the parking deck which was reimbursed by the hotel or a $25 overnight valet parking fee which you did not get reimbursed on as a customer of the hotel you should have the option to valet your car without the $25 fee
casino and room booked smoking room did not det smoking room
Excellent service we were treated like rock stars! The smoking in the casino.
i liked that the rooms where clean and luxury and didnt have the typical casino smoke smell i didnt like the fact that i didnt get the room i booked online although this one was very nice maybe even upgraded but they should have mentioned it
Loved the high ceilings and the fact they kept a lot of the details of the old use of the building. Great ambiance, food, bar. etc.
The lobby and rooms were nicely appointed. Probably one of the nicer lobbies I've seen - really pleasant to just hang out in. The echoes and slightly dim lighting of the hallways reminded me of elementary school and just didn't give me the luxury vibe. The lighting room also gives it a rather downbeat feeling. I think some bright sconce lighting in both halls and rooms would really give some much needed energy without compromising the historical gravity of the re-purposed courthouse.
Old historic building with modern amenities. Short walk to the Riverwalk and great restaurants It was all good, must valet car which was understandable for the repurposed building
Great design. Looks very upscale. No parking. Must use meter to park on the street or pay for valet service. The faucet and shower handle were not installed properly and were loose.
- The hotel is built into an old US courthouse, which is very pretty and well executed. It felt like a high-end boutique hotel. - The room was exceptionally clean, and the decor was nice and modern. - The location of the hotel was great. A quick ride or walk to anywhere downtown. - The price and value of the hotel relative to where it is, and what you get is pretty good. I felt this was the nicest hotel for the price. - The hotel was a bit difficult to navigate when first arriving. The entrance is around the Zack side, not on the Florida side that is advertised as actual address. Once we got our bearings it was better. - The hotel bar advertises a daily happy hour, however in practice the hotel bar was never open, nor was there any staff there. - The restaurant was good in theory, but execution was lacking. The egg breakfast I got tasted horrible and had to be sent back. The other food was pretty good, but the service was complete rubbish. - The hotel is a bit sparse and lifeless, and hotel staff were hard to find.
Modern and beautiful rooms are spacious and staff is great
It was a last minute plan to stay in downtown Tampa. This place was GREAT!! The staff were awesome, the rooms were very comfy and the amenities were pleasing. Parking was a little interesting as there is no onsite parking but because they offer 24 hour valet and your already downtown with lots to do, its not so bad.
Very bad customer service. Reserved a room with king bed and got one with 2 full beds instead. I paid extra for the one king bed. Nothing they can do.
Excellent location and friendly staff. Well maintained facility and very nice rooms. Embassy Suites offers good value for our money and we recommend them highly. This hotel has great views of the channel and river. The river walk was super and lots of entertainment and good restaurants nearby. Only issue was a peculiar rumbling noise when we showered. Seemed like the hot water heater/ plumbing was struggling although we had no problem.
Great service great location great hospitality clean Elevators
I called to extend my room. The agent told me that there were no rooms available, but when I checked online at their website they still had open rooms. I'm still not sure why I was declined to extend my stay. Also, we were unable to lower the air below 68 degrees in our room, and the shower took at least 10 minutes to get hot. Needless to say I will not be back to this location.
Proximity to everything.
The Valet staff was professional and very good. The suite was a good size. There was a complimentary breakfast in the morning. I was completely unimpressed with the hotel. The suite was clean but a hodgepodge of stuff. The furniture in the suite was to big, very hard and uncomfortable, it was like you where sitting on 2x4's. The layout of the furniture in the suite and the suite itself was not well thought out. It was like the pieces of furniture where left overs and just thrown in the suite. The work table was severely lopsided and wobbly, the internet wire was broken. The shower curtain was installed so poorly that it actually hung on you as you took a shower and kept sliding open as it was not level at all. I stayed in this hotel expecting a room with some kind of semi nice water view, which only existed via a not very practical side window in the bedroom. The suite was not comfortable in any way.
very spacious and comfortable suite rug was a bit dirty
great location, we went to the hockey game...couldn't have stayed closer!! it was perfect pillows were awful, room near elevator very noisy all night long could hear elevators
It was so great to be able to walk to the tcc, the Forum and even Channelside wasn't that far. The free happy hour is nice if you don't mind waiting in line. The nightclub Jackson's Bistro played their music sooooo loud and it kept me up til past 2am! It sounded like a street parade with people banging on drums outside my windows. The bass drum was ridiculous. Not even pillows over my head helped. I was very mad because I had to wake up at 4:30am for my flight. I did not like that there was no option to self-park either and that it was $20 per night to park the car. Lame!
The woman who checked us in didn't seem to know what she was doing, but tried acting like she did. She charged our card for $489. When I told her we booked the room for $299 she said, "whatever I have on my computer is what you booked it for". I had to go back later that evening to have someone else adjust it. He was very friendly and saw that it was their mistake within seconds.
Very clean hotel, and courteous staff. Booked this hotel last minute, and only wish I could've stayed longer. I would definitely be back to enjoy that rooftop pool that I missed.
Best breakfast buffet of any hotel.
When we opened up the mini bar it had not been cleaned in a while. Something brown had leaked in the bottom of the fridge. Very gross. We were told another guest had put some of their own things in the fridge and that's what made the mess. So no one ever cleans or looks in the mini bar? We were in a junior suite and you expect the room to be clean. Also there were 6 bed risers stacked up on the bedroom night stand. Will not be back again. Very disappointed in the hotel. You should not have to call the front desk to get your room cleaned.
Staff was friendly and hotel was very clean. Hotel offers valet service for $20 a night but self-parking garage is directly behind hotel wirh direct access to hotel. Beds are hign which was great for my inlaws and their arthritic knees. Beds were comfortable and the room was well groomed. Breakfast buffet was traditional foods so nothing spectacular but the food was cooked fresh and hot food was always available. The wait staff was very attentive. Overall a nice hotel to utilize when looking for something close to the airport, mall and restaurants- all are within 5 miles. The hotel is attached to business offices so when I opened the curtains I could cleary see people working in their offices and they could see me which forced me to keep the curtains drawn.
This hotel was really clean and tasteful. My room was very comfortable and staff was very helpful. Will stay again next time I'm in town. I wasn't sure where the hotel ended and the business complex or restaurants started. Granted, the staff was very friendly and helpful. I kind of found myself wandering around and in some area's felt out of place in shorts and flip-flops.
Very nice building. The place was very well decorated and it was apparent that considerable effort was put into the interior design of my room. There was a very nice fitness center with a full range of equipment (including free weights; a rarity for a hotel) and there were even complimentary earbuds (wifi was $13.95 but earbuds are free? ... Seems odd but thank you.). The whole place seemed very clean on the houskeeping side but there was some building maintenance issues. The staff I encountered were very friendly and hospitible. With the exception of the minibar which was jam packed with the usual assortment of ridiculously priced things there was no fridge. Also, despite the a/c being set to 65° the entire time the room never felt cooler than 75° which makes it very hard for me to sleep. We were on the top floor so I assumed it was the blazing hot sun beating on the building but even at night it couldn't catch up. Lastly the wifi cost $13.95 to use which I thought was pretty steep considering every hotel I've stayed in for the past 10 years or so has included it for free.
Location, attractive room and lobby, parking garage, nice TV. The high bed, no hot water, difficulty turning on shower, toilet running, broken bathroom door hook, no movie channel.
The pool on the roof was very nice, decor throughout hotel was tasteful, staff very friendly Having to pay extra to use the refrigerator in the room- after the cost of the room it should be included.
The staff (not managers) are friendly. My stay at this hotel was entirely disappointing. I requested a room away from the elevators and had called twice to confirm this request and was given a room right next to loud creaky bumping elevators. My friend had ordered me room service to be in my room when I arrived as a surprise and it was never there and would not have been delivered had she not asked how I enjoyed my surprise food. At my insistence I was moved to a different room the next day and the day I left the hotel saw a BED BUG crawling on my pillow as I was getting ready. I alerted the staff who was appropriately horrified only to NOT hear from a manager for the next day and a half. After repeated calls and emails from me including one to a front staff who said she had seen the manager and was surprised I had not heard back only to be lied to by that same manager hours later that she 'only just arrived' and that was why my calls were not returned. Finally after a rant to a lower level manager the front desk manager was all of the sudden made available to me and finally an investigation into the bed bug was launched. What is MOST disturbing is because they themselves had not 'confirmed' this was a bed bug (which is very clearly was...I have photos) they could not tell me for certain that no one else was staying in that room. At the LEAST that room and neighboring rooms should have been closed and checked immediately but the managers were slow to take action and initially very dismissive. It is a DISGUSTING feeling to have the experience of knowing you slept somewhere that has bed bugs and all the effort I had to put in once I got home to try and decontaminate myself and my stuff to not infest my house and my baby's nursery. Most disheartening was the response from the hotel on the matter. I wish this review would let me submit the picture of the bed bug I took. I was forced to stay at this hotel because of an exam that was being given onsite but I will never stay at this or any related hotel again. Not even because of the bed bugs themselves, but because the hotel was so slow to respond and so dismissive, potentially putting others at risk as well by not quarantining the room(s).
close to american board of pathology, shula's steak house, nice room away from elevators with good temperature control, nice tub, pleasant staff a bit pricey, no refrigerator space; last time i was here i was in a room near the elevators and had difficulty sleeping as people go up and down all night
Good location, free parking, clean room, very comfortable beds! Great experience overall...can't wait to return! No negatives
My room had only lukewarm water and was extremely noisy.
Clean room. Good size Restaurant in hotel has poor service and doesn't seem clean. Wouldn't eat there
Price Soggy , sticky carpet. AC leaked. One slow elevator, getting to our room was a challenge. NO continental breakfast, NO microwave in ea room (one $20 microwave next to ice machine)
The location is great and very close to the airport. You could tell that the room had been updated (new paint, fresh linens, nice towels, etc) and there was a mini fridge - not bad for under $100 a night. The bed was horrible - completely worn down to the springs on one side and the other wasn't much better. The sheets were nice though. The outside door had a gap about as wide as my finger all the way around and the carpet looked quite dirty and worn. The front desk staff were pleasant at check-in, however it was a completely different story at check-out. I clearly interrupted the two employees talking when I walked up to the desk. After both looking at me standing there, they continued their personal conversation for another five minutes and after realizing I wasn't going away, reluctantly came to the desk. I said I needed to check out, she asked my room number, then didn't say another word, just slapped the paper on the desk and walked back to the office behind the desk, closing the door behind her. Not a bad price, but I don't plan on saying here again.
Staff was great from the moment i stepped in. Restaurant in hotel, night club, pool, basically all you need. Room was cleaned and smelled great. The room wasnt luxurious, like marble baths, but was clean and provided all we needed. Door to the room opened outside. Room had 2 full sized beds, not queens. (My fault for not double checking) We were positioned close to the night club and listened to thumping at 10pm when we went to sleep. We had a 5am wake up, so we missed the am breakfast that starts at 7.
I wouldn't stay at this hotel for free!
The fact that its next door to a strip club Sink didnt work. Had to use shower to brush teeth.
The check in process was very slow and not very friendly. I did not know the hotel was garden style, appearing to be more of a motel. The room was very dank, both double beds visibly sank in the middle of the mattress. The bathroom was clean, but the molding in the bathroom was either not complete, or not cut or installed correctly. The hotel was extremely noisy, with a lot of activity (fighting) in the late night/early morning.
Comfortable bed needs updating of furnishings and decor. Carpet tacks from bedrrom area to bathroom were exposed, painful!! Restaurant was expensive.
We did not have shuttle service to the airport between 4:30 AM and 5:30 AM and we had to pay a Taxi driver $30.00 to be able to make our flight. There were three of us. The front desk was unsympathetic and we almost missed our flight.
We had a room on the top floor. The front desk staff was friendly, the room was a good size. Only 10 minutes to get to the straz center downtown. We woke up to people yelling down the hall to each other and a woman using very foul language. I acknowledge this isn't the hotels fault, but if I stayed again I would ask for s room far away from the elevator. The walls are pretty thin to the outside so you could clearly hear other people's conversations as they walked by our room.
Plenty of outlets for charging, plenty of towels and coffee. Everything was clean and beds were comfortable. No bed bugs!
Close to Airport No shuttle at night; Breakfast not included; outside (motel) doors; Could hear highway traffic; Restaurant opened 15 minutes late;
Great time for the New Years Celebration. Hotel was clean, room had a great view, and the people were very helpful. I would def come back and stay here again.
I liked the waterfront view. It was a nice view on the 6th flor and look out over the bay especially at night view. The size of beds were too small and the placement of the lights in the room didn't allow proper lighting. They were too bright over the bed. The rugs needed cleaning.
Excellent food and service, top notch room.
The staff was very nice. The room was very modern. I didn't expect such a great experience. don't get me wrong I expected it to be fine but it exceeded just fine only drawback was that our lightbulb in the front hallway of our room was dead but everything else was perfect and even though we brought in Christmas away from home we still felt comfortable bringing it in there. I definitely look forward to staying there again on our next visit.
Clean and hospitable
Everything was clean, room service was speedy, all in all a pretty enjoyable stay The pillows aren't that comfortable for my neck. I feel as if they were just puffs of air that didn't provide much neck support.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool was pretty and the boardwalks were scenic. Our shower fixture was broken but still usable. I let the staff know when we checked out about the issue.
The room and Hotel was very clean. The staff was excellent. Valet remembered us and was very personable every time we saw him. I can't remember the name of the front desk clerk when we checked in, he was very professional and helpful. This was our first time in the Tampa area and after our stay at the Hyatt we are ready to go back. The bed was very comfortable I never wanted to get out. I only have one complaint. Right after we checked into the room. Maintinence arrived at the request of the maid to fix the toilet paper roll in the wall. She had just walked in without knocking. After she saw us in the room she explained and did not know that we had checked in at the time.
Clean, nice design. Room was very tiny, compared to a standard room and especially compared to the Aloft in Orlando. This room didn't include couches, a table to sit at, or a separate area to lounge at. Just a room with a bed.
When I got my car back (Cadillac CTS/performance) the stuff in the trunk was all moved around and knocked over. This tells me that they drive my car like they stole it. Not appreciated. See above
Everything was great! Room was perfect and cozy!
I enjoyed the city view and the very comfortable beds. The bar was also a nice touch. The room was very humid. The sink drain plug was stuck so we had to use a knife to open it.
The location of the property was great. It had to have been the worst stay I ever had at a property. We made a reservation weeks prior to our stay, when we checked in we were told that ther would be no food options because they were throwing a party. This should have been communicated to us on time of reservation. Plus the party could be heard rumbling throughout the property. Great. Sounded like it was next door. We asked for dog beds when we made our reservation and when we checked in No bed What a surprise. We called the front desk 3 time to make this happen. Would never book again.
Room was great, staff was very friendly! I was there for three nights and I put the door tag out the first night (indicating I did not want it cleaned) but then I guess it was assumed I wanted the room not cleaned the whole time? I was hoping they would come and clean the room the following day but they did not. It was fine but that system is confusing if you are staying more than one night.
The rooms have a nice lay out. The trash receptacles were not empty.
The willingness of the front desk staff to provide me with hassle free services to celebrate my 5 year anniversary with no problems. The beds are not that comfortable in comparison to most hotels I've stayed in.
room pool fire pit bar black out shades are great everything hot water for shower was not hot enough for my liking light on the thermostat was bright (blue light for cooling)
HAVING TO PAY FOR PARKING WHILE i WAS A GUEST STAYING IN THE HOTEL. ONE OF THE MAIN THEMES OF THE HOTEL IS FOOD BASED AND WHEN WE ATE THERE THE FOOD WASN'T UP TO PAR WITH THE PRICES WE PAID. THE BAR WAS SUPER NOISY. WHEN I MADE A SUGGESTION WITH THE CLEAR AT THE FRONT COUNTER SHE GOT ARGUMENTATIVE WITH ME.
Decor Roof top bar closed on Sunday of holiday weekend.
The Reception Staff were extremely helpful, let me have access to my Room from 0945 hrs on the first day and let me keep my Room until 1400 hrs on day of departure. Also it is very easy to walk to the middle of Tampa. If at all possible book a river view room (not much more $20 a night extra) these I think would have less road noise.
Mold was actually dripping from bathroom ceiling. Phones did not work. Vending machine on floor did not work. Was charged for valet twice. Great other than that...
The hotel keept us in good shape, as we had to climbe the stairs up to 6 floor ( the elevators were not running... ) And if you try to get some sleep, try a diffrent hotel, cause young guest of this hotel know how to party ..
View Bathroom seemed dirty with mildew
Great hotel staff, the rooms were comfortable and great location to downtown Tampa, airport and port.
The room was shabby and the shower didn't work right. The bed was saggy. The public restroom closest to my meetings had only one functional sink and one functional soap dispenser the entire 3 days I was there. The cleaning lady that serviced that restroom put the toilet bowl brush on the sink! Even with the deal I got through booking.com, the $ they ask for that place is outrageous. The restaurant was mediocre. Nice location. The free wifi was nice, but expensive to pay $18/day on top of the expensive room rate.
I only stayed one night so I cant comment on all the facilities beds were comfortable Valet only parking. Expensive
Bathroom ceiling in bad shape
Location to the river walk, and service of staff Nothing
The staff was always very friendly, no matter who you dealt with. The hotel was clean, well staffed, efficient and quiet.
Easy Check in Wouldn't give me the points as booked through kayak :( There night time Bell Staff was just loitering using the facebook on the computers in the Lobby. Not a very good look for the company. He seemed to not care about his job at all.
The club level rooms with river view are gorgeous! Located in between two bridges that light up and right in the middle of River Walk, it is a great stay. The club lounge has breakfast in the morning (eggs, grits, bacon, sausage) and snacks throughout the day. Bottles of water and soda cans available too.
The weather Roaches in our room, enough said. Management did nothing to compensate us. Will not stay there again
Stayed 6 nights, it was to visit my daughter at UT college. The drive into the city wasn't bad. Very busy during rush hours but that's any city. Also drove to golf courses and Anna Maria Island all was easy enough. Pool was nice, clean. Gym is bigger than most hotel fitness areas, Fresh coffee every morning. There is bar and restaurant right next store. Out side deck. Nice enough for a beer. I'll stay there again when I go back The help when I got there turned me off. There was a few people at the counter (line of about 6 people) and only one girl trying to help while two were not bothering to help. They could see people were waiting. The one young girl had to ask them to jump in.
Room was nice. The attached Beach restaurant created a perfect retreat after a long days of travel and work. This early riser was left in a ghost town when it came to finding coffee and something to eat. Shower squealed until I busted up all the hardwater despots in the shower head.
Not hot water in the night , the bath tube bad
Staff were super friendly. Great shuttle service! Food was a delicious. I would stay there again.
Front desk personal was friendly and helpful Shower head was messed up and dirty. Complained a few times to house keeping and still was not fix. Plus there were uncovered holes and 1 outlet was not covered properly.
Beautiful view of the Harbor. The room was very very clean, no Florida bugs that you always hear of. Night life exceptional, many things to do within walking distance. Their restaurant and breakfast is great, and not high priced. Will definitely recommend and visit again.
Nice view No super market nearby. One of elavators was not working all the time. Staff were not helpful at all. We arrived there around midnight and we had to stay in the lobby for about an hour and half till they gave us the room. Toilet flush was not working properly.
Extremely nice staff and great location
No shampoo and conditioner the first night, second night they took dirty linens and didn't replace, also lots of remodeling noise, third day had Jack hammering in room next to us and was told " remodeling" i said that is great but you shouldn't have put us next to it! Not a great stay... No breakfast either
I arrived at the hotel close to 11pm, and my room still was not ready. After waiting for 20-30 minutes for them to prepare a room, it was the wrong room and there was dirt/dust all over the bathroom counter and sink. I had booked a water view room and the only view i had was a parking lot. Around 1am I was woken up by pounding on my door.. once I opened it I was questioned as to wether or not I had even checked into the hotel since they had no record of anyone staying in that room and it was supposed to be vacant.
Good value, convenient to airport with free shuttle. On site restaurant has decent food and beds are comfortable.
The hotel was clean, not far from the airport, free breakfast and best of all free shuttle to the cruise pier. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I felt this was one of the best hotels for a pre cruise stay I have ever been at. Would not hesitate to stay here again ever!
Clean and comfortable. The King suite is a very Spacious room. Breakfast was ok. Pool is nice but very small and not much sun gets to it because it's in a narrow courtyard. Free shuttle to a 3 mile radius is convenient but doesn't run to/from airport. Security is tight and it needs to be. Kind of a rough area. Panhandlers and homeless on every street corner. Ybor City has a hip nightlife but Be careful walking around at night. Thought it was overpriced for the location. In retrospect we could've stayed on the beach for that price. If you like the nightlife then YBOR CITY has a lot to offer and this is likely as nice of a hotel as any in that area.
The location was fantastic! Staff was friendly and helpful at check-in. Loved the layout of the room. The sleeper sofa was so great and unexpected. The room did feel a little dirty though (i think it was the carpet that made me feel this way). Breakfast was acceptable. Great place to stay if you are wanting to have some fun in Ybor.
IF YOU NEED A NICE PLACE TO STAY -- THEN STAY HERE. CLEAN, EASY TO GET TO, NICE ROOM, AND FRIENDLY PEOPLE.
Location was perfect, close enough to all of the action but not too loud. Staff was amazing, very friendly, informative and cared to make our trip memorable! Room was clean and spacious! King bed was comfortable with pillows like clouds. I also liked how you needed the room key to get to your floor in the elevator and in the door to the "pre-lobby", I felt safe at this hotel. They should have the hot breakfast until 11 for all the late nighters.
Location We were in rooms 236&237. Apparently the plumbing for the showers is not insulated as our water never got hot
Location, location, location! Great breakfast, good beds, excellent staff. A little expensive for the quality of room.
The place is busy so be patient with staff. Had a few issues but they were handled quickly. No complaints. It's clean and well maintained. The bright spot was the poolside food. It's great. We ended up eating there two out of four nights. Kind of beach Mexican. Would recommend staying here.
Beautiful location on Tampa Bay. Excellent staff and beautifully kept grounds. The room was a little run down and aged, but nice layout. We liked the balcony, kitchen and amenities. The room could use a little sprousing up and repaired. Door jambs, tile and holes in the closet walls for A/C and water heater access should be fixed. Flyers in the room asked us to conserve water, but the shower faucet leaked and could not be turned completly off.
Great suite is a converted condo over looking the bay. Terrific view Bedroom was to small, Building echoes, not centralized location, but close to interstate so was okay.
The location, the facility and the staff were all great. We'll stay again if we need hotel in Tampa, and will recommend it to others.
Nit a great loation unless you have a car.
I prefer this over a Hyatt/Marriott any day. Very affordable, kitchen availability which we used daily, private balcony with beautiful views, staff were very accommodating, security on site, lots to do for kids or space to just relax for adults. Free shuttle to and from airport was great. lots of parking available. We would love to come back! Can't think of anything.
its very comfortable, it has all we needed. it´s probably a little away, and you ought to have a car. we used it just too sleep cause we were visitin`, Tampa, St. Petersburg & Clearwater all during` weekend. there was too much light in the bedroom, the black out curtain wasn´t enough, but we were so tired, that we didn´t mind at all.
The security was pretty good. The view was relaxing. I was dissapointed because what I booked was not what I got. I reserved two bedroom suite and I ended in two separate rooms because the room was given to another person.
It's a bit old and could use some updates
Parking is an issue at this location. Nearest lot is across the street, but the only offer pay-and-display that is good through midnight. No way to pay for parking overnight, so there is a worry that your car will be towed before you arise or leave in the morning. The hotel should make some arrangements with a local lot to provide secure guest parking.
Location Even though when I booked the room I clearly stated 4 adults, when we checked in, they gave us a room with only one king size bed. When I complained, they said "sorry, we are all sold out, you should have specified you wanted 2 beds when you made the reservation". When I asked for 2 roll away beds, they said we could only have one due to fire code restrictions. Staff never really tried to help me - more of a tough luck attitude!
Right in Ybor, perfect for parades! Breakfast buffet was not the greatest for the price. A little overpriced for the size of the rooms.
Staff was super helpful! Close to everything! We will stay again!
Proximity to down town Ybor city
Very nice room and the staff was very nice. Looking forward to staying here again.
Close proximity to Ibor City Had to pay for parking, nuts!!!!
Great location for Riverwalk and downtown. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food in restaurant was delicious with lots of local beers on tap. Needs updating, water in shower smelled 'musty', thinner walls so hope you don't get loud neighbors
Bed and pillows great Old noisy moldy
The location of the hotel is right on the riverwalk allowing for easy access to the convention center and straz performing arts center. Lobby was clean with fresh flavored ice water available. Check in was quick and easy. Rooms are old and small, but clean. We asked for a late checkout and were provided with one extra hour. When we were taking our luggage to the car, our room key was turned off even though it was prior to our late checkout time. What a pain to have to go back to the front desk and reactivate the key just to get the remaining luggage!
We had to switch hotel rooms twice. The first room we got was a smoking room. The second room we went to, there was no hot water, the tub didn't drain and the toilet didn't flush well. We moved to another room and to get hot water we had to run the water for at least 5 minutes. The staff were very friendly and accomodated our requests but we didn't enjoy our stay there and wouldn't go back again.
Very Helpful front desk attendants. Would stay again and very close to the Hockey Arena! Can't wait to visit Tampa again. Nothing!
Location in downtown , access to river walk, friendly staff, restaurant and bar was good. Rooms were clean, flat screen TV, free shuttle to local area. Very old/dated rooms, Very noisy- every noise in the hallway was heard clearly (and loud) in the room. Sound from adjoining rooms was very audible.
Clean all around for the most part. The shuttle driver asked for tip even when the service was complimentary by the hotel ,the front desk woman connie was rude in person and over the phone. The bathroom was rundown in the hotel room. The tv quality was horrible and made loud whistle noise.
rooms were clean, bedding was clean, beds were comfortable with lots of pillows, nice toiletries no coffee service in the morning unless you went to the on-site restaurant, flimsy guide to area
I really enjoyed the bartenders. They were very personable and tried to relate to someone that wasn't from anywhere near the area. The shuttle service was also nice and the driver brought us to where we wanted to go. I didn't like not having a complimentary breakfast. Pool closed really early as well. Took forever to get hot water to my room.
No place to put shampoo or soap in shower
Bad TV reception. flat screen with a mono feed. Bathroom was severely outdated. Place needs work
Location was wonderful. Lots of things to walk to. Lots of construction and closed streets around it and very difficult to drive to because of it.
