Awesome place , staff super friendly

My reservation was canceled due to billing issue on Orbitz side. I had call Orbitz to change reservations so Orbitz canceled my reservation and made a new on and doing so used a old CC on my account and did not verify what card was used. I had no idea that card was still on my account for I added a new card. So traveled all the way to the hotel with family in tow for my Daughters birthday weekend to have no reservation in place and all hotels booked in the area. And after calling Orbitz to fix this. I was on hold the entire two hour ride back home and then second call to Orbitz I was basically told I well is your fault for non payment. Even though I select pay at hotel at time of stay and never got a notification that there was a billing issue

Nice room, redone, but bathrooms are still dated. Check in was quick, but odd. Kind of the “what’s up bra?”.

Close to Moffit hosp @ staff was very accommodating.

Location was good. WaWa right next door. Its no microwave or coffee pot in rooms.

The bus transport is not working their breakfast was not good it’s a continental to go bagged breakfast and the rooms smelled wet.

Safety., clean during this COVID-19 perfect. Great location close to the USF university.

I made my reservation thru Orbitz which said the hotel was Per Friendly. After checking in, I was told I had to pay a one time charge of $75 AND I could not have a CAT. What does PET FRIENDLY mean? I could have had an Iguana or a snake. They are Pets. We were told if we wanted to stay another day we would have to pay another $150. We said no and found a place that really was Pet friendly and no charges. Also we did NOT use Orbitz for our next reservation. Hyatt said it was Orbitz fault. Who knows? I just want to reserve a Pet friendly place to sleep.

Great staff. Warm and welcoming. Thank you. Shuttle driver was very accommodating.

Staff were very friendly, service was good. Breakfast was decent, good coffee!

Carpet in room was dirty. Staff was friendly . Breakfast was ok

Rethink your stay!!! If you have neck or back problems (or sleeping issues at all) this hotel is not going to work for you. Our stay consisted of two nights attempting to sleep in horribly uncomfortable beds that make me wonder why there are not more ambulances out front taking guests to area hospitals. Hotel staff is friendly and welcoming, but can do nothing to address the fact that this hotel is situated on busy highways with 24 hr fast food and convenience stores all around - which coupled with the low income housing of the area - make this an unsafe location at night. You and your family will not be entirely safe in this area and must be attentive of your surroundings at all times if you do stay here. I relocated to Fla last year and have visited nearly every major city and attraction in the state and beyond since. If you are looking for a vacation anywhere between Atlanta and Miami, our experience here shows Tampa is easily the worst vacation choice you could make. The city itself is a gridlock and construction nightmare with a clearly unaddressed and growing homeless problem. The parks and attractions are absolutely underwhelming when compared to those in Orlando or even Naples. The single redeeming light of this stay was gaining the knowledge that Tampa is NOT the vacation spot advertised.

Helpful staff and very nice breakfast. Early checkin and late checkout are a nice feature.

Thank you for your review. Your review is on the hotel, not on Orbitz. A review such as this is very detrimental to the hotel. We are so sorry to hear of your experience with Orbitz. But again, the review you posted is on the hotels page. Not Orbitz specifically.
