Great location, decent price due to the use of points, more than ample breakfast, free parking and fast wifi, large room (we got a one bedroom suite) with plenty of space for the dog and her crate. However, looks like they need to take a look at spraying for insects--I had to kill 2 small roaches each night in the kitchen area--yuk. I walked the dog around Lois Avenue the first day or so--very busy street--and then I walked her behind the hotel--much quieter on Manhattan Ave. Both Lois and Manhattan have extremely dog friendly apartments nearby with special dog walks and poop bag stations--one is the Crescent and the other is the Millennium--very nice residents--enjoyed meeting them and talking about our dogs. We stayed on the 8th floor and weren't too bothered by the noise. You are in a busy area and it's at the intersection of two busy streets, so you will hear some road noise, especially loud trucks and motorcycles but by about 11 pm or so, we did not hear a thing. The hotel also appeared to be packed, and we did not hear anyone in the halls or our neighbors.
Stayed here as we were working on a project in the Tampa area. Fair warning all hotels in Tampa are pricey. This was the most reasonable at the time. The property is very nice and very well maintained and the staff is great. I would stay there again.
This was our second stay at this location. We love the location and the fact that they are dog friendly. They are an easy walk to a number of great restaurants and lots of places to walk your dog! The rooms are very clean and comfortable. It is nice to be able to spread out a little and not feel cramped. The staff is very friendly, they accommodated us last minute when our other arrangements fell through. We did not attend their evening beer, wine and snack event so I cannot speak to that perk. The coffee in the morning is better than I thought it might be and I suppose the breakfast was good enough, but we went elsewhere.
Better than we expected! Perfect for our family of 6, we all got to stay together. The breakfast was better than most continental buffets, as there was something for all of our tastes. The beds were very comfy, even the pullout sofa. We walked almost everywhere, including the big game, which Clemson won! Go Tigers!
Loved this hotel. We were 2 moms with their young adult daughters. Stayed for 3 nights total, pre and post cruise. We had a 2 bedroom suite with a full kitchen. Room was beyond expectations and included free breakfast. Staff were super friendly and very accommodating and so helpful. Will definitely stay again.
This property is in a very convenient location if you're flying into Tampa, since it's 10 minutes from the airport. Also, if you're visiting Raymond James Stadium for a football game, you're within walking distance (about 1 mile). We booked a two room and two bathroom suite, which was great for our extended stay. The room was very clean. The room is showing a little wear, but not objectionable. The staff was top notch - everyone we interacted with was great. Over the weekend, the complimentary breakfast disappeared quickly, so rise early. The pantry was bare on one morning, so that was disappointing, even a half hour before the ending time. I would not hesitate to stay here in the future.
My husband and I, along with our adult daughter and her husband stayed here one evening, prior to a cruise out of Tampa. The two bedroom suite was perfect with a full Kitchen, livingroom, fireplace, dining area, and two bedroom with two bathrooms. The suite was clean.l, and perfect for 4 adults. Room comes with free breakfast. Additionally, from 7-8:30 pm, they offer free beer, wine and desserts each evening. We would return and stay again!
As we experience at virtually all Marriott properties, our stay at this location was excellent. The staff were friendly and efficient, and the room was spacious, immaculate, and included a full kitchen. The complimentary breakfast buffet offered a variety of eggs, bacon, sausage, juices, bread items, and cereals. The location was ideal for us--less than 15 minutes by cab to the airport. The lobby had the customary complimentary USA Today as well as a Tampa newspaper. We will definitely stay at this property on our next trip to Tampa.
We had a 2-bedroom/2-bath room on the 6th floor for five nights. The pros: The 2-bedroom room was really spacious, with a warm, inviting color scheme and terrific lighting throughout, especially in the vanity areas. The showers are fantastic! Monday through Wednesday, they offer some evening meal/snack options on site (though not always free – see under “cons”). The fitness center is well-equipped with cardio equipment, free weights, and exercise balls. The staff is professional, friendly, and helpful. There’s a good selection of items at the complimentary breakfast buffet, and I really loved their house coffee. The hotel was centrally located to all the things we wanted to see on this trip (we went everywhere from the beach to downtown), and it’s close to the airport and several big local businesses, so it seems to be a very good choice for businesspeople in particular. It's pet-friendly, too, so you can bring your dog if you need to. The cons: The lobby/breakfast area was almost always freezing, which made breakfast a bit uncomfortable. One of the elevators kept having problems – one day, it took us up to our floor, didn’t open the door, then took us back to the first floor, then back up to our floor and finally opened the door! (We reported this right away, as it was the same elevator that was out of service when we’d first arrived.) There’s a small pool, but it’s next to the parking lot and overlooked by a nearby apartment complex, so it’s not exactly the kind of place I wanted to hang out at. It’s also a bit tricky getting into and out of the parking lot, due to the location. The meal option on Wednesday was a food truck, and it was NOT free – the hotel should make this clear on their brochures/invites. Most importantly, both beds in our room felt lumpy to me, and I never felt I had a truly good night's sleep because of that. Neutral: The hotel is located near some busy streets, so you can hear a bit of traffic noise at night. We expected this, given the location, so it didn't bother us. Overall, we had a good stay, and we’d definitely consider staying here again, but the lumpy beds in particular keep me from giving 5 stars. Hopefully, that can be remedied by the next time we're in the area. :)
This facility was recently remodeled except for the HVAC and windows. The HVAC in our first room was like sleeping with a freight train when it turned on. The second room was better but still way to loud. Noise from the steet side of the hotel is ridiculous since the windows are not soundproof and the hotel sits in one of Tampa's major streets. This could be a great place with a great staff (eveyone of the employees we imteracted with were top shelf). But I would not stay again until the HVAC is replaced and I could be assured a pool side room if the windows are not replace. I do not understand how so many people rate the hotel highly if it is so noisy you can't sleep.
