more than a business hotel

Excellent location, very close to airport highways leading to Clearwater Beach and on the main road leading to the downtown and the Hyde Park neighborhood. The hotel itself is beautiful with a shopping center and movie theatre across the street. Very nice staff. Rooms offered top quality beds and sheets. All done in good taste. Pool a little dated but the beaches are where it is at. Highly recommend the hotel.

Great for me and my family, including grand kids. Shula's bar and food was great. Not cheap but good. Staff was nice and room was fine I would stay hear again and recommend. Great for Raymond James Stadium. Loved the coffee bar.

Perfect!

I took my bf there for his 30th birthday. We had a great time. The location is perfect. Its right across from the mall and has a ton of things near by. There is a don shula steakhouse inside hotel but SUPER expensive. We came back to our room after dinner to find a bottle of champage. It was such a great stay

Convenient Business Trip Location

Everything was great with the exception of the elevator noise that was loud enough to prevent me from being able to go to sleep in our first room. As a result the staff moved us and gave us a complimentary breakfast.

Good

Our stay went well. Clean room, VERY comfortable beds. Windows do not open, ventilation isn't very good. Only small vent in washroom. Earrings/jacket went missing while staff cleaned room. Not impressed by that. If found while gone they said they would mail them. Doubt they will be returned. Small pool for hotel size but great view from pool as it is on top of building.
