Close to our concert

Pros: All the staff were friendly and room was very comfortable and clean
My friends and I were very happy with the hotel, The river walk beside it was beautiful. It was close to our concert and provided a free shuttle to the event. Food was delicious both for dinner and the breakfast buffet. We would definitely come back.

This place is a dump, A/C was not working, ice maker on our floor was out of order, paint was falling off the bathroom ceiling, the vents were rusty, and everything looked like it was MacGyver'd together with paint, caulk, and desperation.

The hotel was nice, unfortunately I am unable to say that about the staff. The greeter at the front desk was extremely reserved and unfriendly. Valet parking on site 24.00 per day, however I had to carry my luggage to my room. There are parking facilities several blocks away charging 9.25 per day. My son experienced another unfriendly staff member in the on site restaurant. Disappointing.

This is an old jewel!

It is in need of a makeover, hiwever, the hotel was ckean, well kept, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. They have a shuttke that will tske you anywhere in a 3 mi radius for free as many times as you want...for free!. It is right on the river wslk and rooms facing the river (they have many) all have spacious balconies. We had a kingbed. Bathrooms have been updated and were clean and well keot. Shower had amazing water pressure!!

other guest were very loud! Slamming doors! AWFUL

Pros: the location
Cons: their policy on guest being disruptive to others, and their policy on pets in the house.
Location: the location is great, and there are always something to do close by.
Guest were loud slamming doors and yelling in the hallway at 2 am. I could not get back to sleep! The toilet made a loud noise when you flushed it and you had to remember to jiggle the handle to make it stop! Dogs barking early in the morning and at night!

NOT up to the rating

Pros: The bathroom was clean.
Cons: The entire facility needs to be renovated.
Location: The location was nice, on a inner city waterway, and in the heart of downtown Tampa, Fl. lots of restaurants and nightlife nearby. needed a reno.
The Sheraton Tampa River Walk was advertised as a 3.8 out of 5 stars. The hotel was realistically a 2 star hotel in bad need of renovation. The staff was nice but the condition of the hotel was disappointing. The corridors and room smelled musty and the room A/C was noisy and took a long time to cool off the room. We originally booked a "city side" room with a king bed but when we arrived they said they only had double bed room left and we could upgrade to a "river side" room with a king bed for an additional fee, which we did hoping for a better room. When we received our credit card statement they actually added more than the quoted amount for the upgrade. The facility was not what I expected for the price.

extremely disappointed

Pros: shuttle service, friendly front staff, room service quick
Cons: Noisy, Poor breakfast, housekeeping, cleanliness of room, uncomfortable bed/pillows, no fridge, hotel overpriced
Front desk - good, friendly. Room Service - good - I had to ask for a fridge for my meds. However, for the price and reputation, fridge should have been there to begin with. Complimentary coffee - very bad - should be regular or decaf brand not a specialty blend. Cleanliness by staff - stayed there 4 days and housekeeping was very inconsistent with cleaning. Carpet did not seemed to be vaccumed at all in 4 days. Used towels on rack taken and not replaced, Coffee used 1st night not replaced - did not make it again anyway. Complimentary water next to TV not replaced. Shower did not seem cleaned on some days and shampoo/conditioner not replaced. Soap WAS replaced daily. Alarm clock/IPad/Radio was very difficult to use and dials hard to turn to get time correct as it was left unplugged. Bed and pillow uncomfortable. Breakfast buffet - very bad as scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage cold. Toast machine - did not toast, heck, butter placed on it did not melt at all. Overall, overpriced for what we got. Did not really have time to complain as I had to leave for airport. Shuttle service was adequate but not timely due to amount of persons he was taking around. Still it was free so really no complaint. Also other guests attending conference stated same as above.
