Great hotel with excellent location

Fine clean rooms, A/C works great which you need in Tampa, Fl. Shuttle fast to arrive. Staff competent and helpful. I did not like the fact that the internet was not free.

Pros: The staff were very accommodating
Cons: Construction in places and needs a better coffee bar on first floor.
Location: Westshore Mall, Maggianos, Fish Market, Irish Pub, etc. even a Walgreens within walking distance
This was the second time I have stayed at this hotel. I was in town for a medical procedure. The staff was wonderful. My husband actually got sick and needed to go to the ER and we were given late check out that we didn't know we would need. The staff at Shula's was kind enough to bring soup to our room. My floor was newly renovated. The hotel is across the street from restaurant's and shopping which makes it convenient. The only awkward thing is it is connected to an office complex which seems a bit strange...hard to navigate a bit in the lobby. This hotel would be perfect if there were a Starbucks in the lobby. There is a small coffee bar but I didn't even notice it until ready to check out during my second stay.

Weekend for University of Tampa Graduation

Pros: Clean modern appearance
Cons: pool area & breakfast option
Hotel was in a great location. They should put some money in the pool area it was lacking creature comforts. There was no breakfast options, onsite they had a overpriced Starbucks want-a-be kiosk with few options. Location convenient for our weekend going to university of Tampa

Nice location, not far from downtown and UT

Experience was good, it would have been great if there was complimentary coffee and a better breakfast option than the overpriced kiosk

Visiting granddaughter

Pros: See above
Cons: See above.
Location: Near shopping, dining. Trip to center of city (we went to see a hockey game between Washington Caps and the local team - we won!) was a good 20 min.
Hotel is convenient. Staff (front desk) was excellent. Room clean and very comfortable. We would definitely stay there again. Got best price through travelocity (hotel did not match pricing when we called directly). Parking was ample and free. The not-so-great: [1] I asked for a wake-up call on one day ... never got it. Fortunately, I used my iPhone to wake me up [2] Wi-Fi was free ONLY because we were members of the club. Otherwise if $14.95 per day (absurd that it is not free for everyone). [3] Parking garage signage is lacking. If you park at the farthest corner from the entrance to hotel there are NO signs to lead you to the hotel entrance. [4] On day we checked out, the main elevators were shut down for 'refurbishment'. You would think they would put signs along the hall to the elevator that the mains were not working and that we should use the side elevators. We had to walk all the way to the elevator only to fully retrace our steps to the side elevators. Annoying.
