This hotel is in the heart of Tampa. I booked it for a getaway with my husband as we wanted to try one of the restaurants in the area. The service and accommodations were perfect. Will definitely stay here again.

3 night stay and was very comfortable. It is centered between office space buildings, but located across from the mall with some nice dining venues, Maggiano's, Mitchell Fish Market and Seasons 52, and PF Chang. They do have the food court for fast food, but we chose Maggiano, Mitchell's and Seasons 52, all of which were good. We used this...

I stayed here for a three day conference. The accommodations for the meetings were good. I brought a sweater and was comfortable. The snacks and meals served were delicious and they were able to accommodate special diets. The room was nice with a desk and lounge chair. The bathroom was very small with virtually no counter space. They offered many...

Definitely wonderful interiors, fun roof-top pool and great location. However the services and staff need more improvement. Also, some bathrooms have issues with the drainage. Overall, not worth the dent in your wallet.

I stayed here for two nights over the weekend. When I checked in on Saturday afternoon, the front personnel was not really in welcoming mood and barely recognized as IHS Reward member. She should have informed me that I should get a complimentary WiFi, but did not and that caused me to not log in for a day as I...

We've stayed here several times and we continue to go back for the beautiful pool area. However I'm not sure we will stay again for the simple reason that the employees simply aren't very friendly. Like it or not they are employed in the hospitality services field, and if they don't like that then they should find another profession. It...
