Right on the campus of USF. Great stay. Bartender, a USF student was so nice along with the concierge who didn't charge us when we decided to leave early instead of staying the second night we had booked. Very accommodating!

The morning breakfasts, the manager's evening reception...

The hotel itself is beautiful, and it is a great location for access to the Sun Dome or Busch Gardens. However, the rooms don't seem to be well maintained. Our room had a broken shower curtain rod as well as a closet door that didn't work. In addition, the WiFi was effectively useless. My maximum download speed for the entire...

When I book a hotel, I always check for additional fees like parking or resort fees, as they can significantly add to the price and detract from the value. When I booked here a month or two back, I'm pretty sure I checked and found none. When I checked in, I was asked if I had a vehicle (yes), but...

Nice hotel. Great breakfast and happy hour. Big rooms with relaxing space. Always will receive above and beyond. The atrium does get very loud during the week with business travel in the bar area, rooms completely surrounds this area; otherwise great stay.

I stayed here on two separate occasions. Room service only cared about reminding me that tips are not included in the charge. Both times no food was delivered and no one could explain why. They messed up my steak order the first time. The second time they messed up nachos...NACHOS!
