Day Before a Cruise

Hotel is in a great location to get on a cruise. Everything was great, very clean hotel. I would expect at this price free Wi-Fi but no such luck. This was the only drawback to staying here.

Relax weekend and Spa day

Location was great. In the heart of Tampa and across the street from a great waterfront bar and grill. The Spa was nice, but for the money it didn't meet all of my expectations. We spent about $400 on a couples package and the rooms we small, the lounger we small, there were male and female sections - no 'couple' lounge areas. The pool was nice, but the deck area around the pool wasn't very attractive. Room was very clean and staff was helpful. The sports bar inside the hotel was nice, but their staff/waiters/managers were terrible. Overall is was a good experience, but I wouldn't make it my place to stay when in the area.

Gafparilla day tooooo crowded!!

Do to the annual Gafparilla pirates celebration, the street to the hotel was closed. We did not check in until. 9:00 P.M. that night...........That said the staff made up for our inconvenience by upgrading our room to a 2 room suite..lam sure that many patrons were unhappy but the staff more than made up for any inconvenience. GREAT PLACE TO STAY!!

We had a wonderful time. The hotel was very accommodating for large groups to be able to meet in the lobby and not be intruded on or be intrusive to others.

Pretty good

The lobby was attractive and had a nice bar. Check in was easy and staff was polite. The negatives of the stay was that the room was hot even after setting the temperature to the lowest setting. The waterview, which you pay extra for, was not worth it. There was no refrigerator or microwave in the room, which made it impossible to have a cold water or save leftover food. They do provide you 2 complimentary bottles of $4 water in the room.

Nice Hotel

Room was nice but not much around the area. I walked about four blocks to find something to eat. There was no shuttle service from the airport and no complimentary breakfast. But overall was a good stay.
