I rented a room at this hotel for New Year's Eve and was highly disappointed. The planning for guest arrival on New Year's Eve was not even a thought. There were seven people online including myself that were waiting forever to be checked in by the two ladies at the front desk. They gave the impression that it was their...

Jacqueline, Thank you for your review and for staying with us over NYE. We appreciate your feedback and will look into this for our future celebrations. We will conduct remedial training as appropriate. Please know with regard to the security deposit, that is a standard hold that many hotels place in order to make sure damage does not occur to...

Stating first that this was New Year's Eve so it was very busy...however, preparation for guests and mechanics of the hotel was something to be desired. We waited in line for 35 minutes to check in. The only two elevators accommodating the hotel were slow and very crowded; there was no service elevator so housekeeping, etc. waited with patrons. The...

I stayed here for a little weekend get away for some sun. The hotel and rooms were clean and updated. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The pool on the roof was nice and good for sunbathing. The hotel is across the street from a mall. It's a good distance if you have a car to get anywhere in the...

The room is a great deal until they add a $100 "security deposit" and you don't get it back until you check out & your bank authorizes it back to your account. The manager was super nice & sympathized w/ me ... we worked it out & everything is good now

This hotel is large and comfortable. They are in the process of making it better with a very nice front desk area as well as restaurant. The rooms could use a re-do but my guess is they will eventually get to them. Im not sure if the restaurant/bar is run by the hotel or not (just want to be fair)...

Don't let the beauty of this location and other reviews fool you. As hordes of Gasparilla attendees were checking into the hotel the management was well aware there was no hot water in the facility. No hot water I meant no clean towels. They ran out of towels. Over the course of the week we were lied to on a...

Although this is near Tampa International Airport, downtown Tampa, it's waterfront location provides great views that make you forget about its proximity to the city center. We enjoyed sitting on our balcony and watching the sunset. Our rooms was clean and the staff was very professional and personable.
