Good evening anonymous. I apologize for not meeting your expectations during your stay. We are a Downtown Tampa hotel and our shuttle is restricted to a 2 mile radius. Feel free to ask us about our new renovated rooms and improvements. Thank you for sharing your sentiments, it will be addressed to the rest of our staff.

Overnight stay in Tampa

Pros: Cleanliness and area
We had booked a room through Travelocity.com that ended up being our worst night mare. Travelocity made it right and moved us to this hotel. The staff was wonderful, Octavia & Eve, worked out getting us checked in very early since we had such problems. Hotel was wonderful, right on the river walk. Hotel was clean and rooms were great! Easily accessible to the Aquarium and zoo..

Great location - needs a LOT of refurbishment

I got a great deal on this hotel, so I really shouldn’t complain. It is walking distance to the Straz Center, the public library, the Riverwalk, and not too far from some restaurants in downtown. The staff was very friendly, however, the building itself is old, dated, and needs a lot of refurbishment. The tv in our room was fuzzy, the bathroom had a lot of patched holes in the tile, a saggy ceiling and was kind of uncomfortable. The shower head was stuck in a weird angle. Water stayed hot and water pressure varied, but was generally strong. We got free parking with our reservation, but I believe there is normally a parking fee. We live about 40 mins away and needed somewhere near our venue to shower and change for a formal event after a nearby hair appointment so we wouldn’t have to drive home and back in between. We got in the night before and were going to hang around the riverwalk or go to downtown, but some men who were checking in at the same time as us started hitting on my 15-year-old while she waited with the luggage rack for me to pull the car up, so that made us a little wary of walking around alone. We drove out to the mall instead. We had planned to spend a second night after our event, but after arriving back at the hotel and finding a bunch of security guards at the front desk (not sure if they were just chatting or something happened) we decided we’d be more comfortable heading home that same night.

Great hotel in a great location!

Everything was wonderful for our stay, including a free shuttle to the Amalie Arena! Couldn't have asked for a better location for the price!
