3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

good food great bartender Joseph excellent employee

At first my room air conditioning wasn't working, but they fixed it fairly promptly. The ice machine on my floor was not working during my entire 5-day stay. My in-room coffee maker set up only included de-caffeinated coffee, and when I asked housekeeping for some regular, she said they didn't have any left. However, there was a complimentary coffee bar set up each morning for guests, but it was never refilled after the two dispensers ran out. I tried to get coffee there on three separate mornings at or before 8AM and couldn't because it was empty. Rooms facing downtown can be quite noisy at night. Overall, I would say the hotel was adequate, but certainly not pampering.

The location of the hotel is nice. However, when booking the room I was not told that the water would be off from 10:30 pm to 3:00 am every night. There was no refrigerator, the a/c never got as cold as it was set too and the ice machine was not working the second day. The food at the onsite restaurant was delicious but the service was not up to par. The shuttle taking and picking us up was a great addition though. Also, my room was listed as a "riverview" when in fact it was a partial view because the majority of my view was a roof. All in all I would stay again because of the location and the shuttle. I just think there needs to be some improvements.

Very good except - the water temperature and pressure varied while taking a shower.

My girlfriend and I were very impressed with the hotel. The only complaint I had was that it was very hot and musty in the hallways of the hotel.

The hotel is a breath of fresh air. Very new and clean with outstanding views and located in a very desirable area. Close to restaurants and the river walk.

In town for a hockey playoff game. Being on the River-walk was a plus as it was a short, pleasant walk to the arena. Staff was great...took the hotel shuttle to Ibor City. The driver was very helpful in telling us how to access the trolley which we wanted to experience on the way back. He graciously gave us his card in case we changed our minds and wanted him to pick us up. The room and bathroom were small, but very adequate for a short stay. We did not feel claustrophobic as our room had a balcony which helped to expand the size. I would stay there again.

Room is smaller than expected. The location is next to the river.

I find the hotel pretty generic looking to be so expensive. The rooms, however were pretty nice. the bed was extremely comfortable. everything looked kind fancy from the entrance to the room. it needs a remodel though. the faucet had hard water build up all around it. what I really didn't appreciate was that I paid cash for the room service for breakfast ($45 for one person) and it still ended up being charged to the room. The location was noisy, they were building something near by and started construction like at 6am! seriously!??? it's in a very noisy location, I guess the plus side is you're close to everything. I guess you're pretty much paying for staying at the "Sheraton" but it's no biggy. We dined at the restaurants down stairs and the food was amazing! even the deserts. The reason I wouldn't recommend this particular hotel is because I've had the same exact comfort at my other favorite hotel for 1/2 the price. Shame.

Parking is at a premium in downtown Tampa,so we were so happy to drop the car off at the hotel and take the shuttle to the convention center. They even let us check in a bit early,which was so appreciated! Restaurant on premises. Staff very pleasant and welcoming. Room very comfortable.Pool heated to 82 Some Riverwalk construction going on,but we were out during the day,so it really was not a big deal.

Great location for walking. Very clean, friendly staff. Offers valet parking. They have a nice-looking restaurant in the lobby, which, unfortunately we did not try. The pool seemed to be in good condition and was right on the river. Our room had a balcony, though it was on the opposite side of the river, facing the city. Still some interesting sights.

very nice staff, great loacation, fun bars, great food

Great Staff, average room, great location. Thought I was getting a discount (15% - GOODTIMES), but alas, that was not to be. Also, the rate was $10. higher than the first time I looked (the day before). Happy with hotel, unhappy with the booking company.

Loved the room and the balcony overlooking the river. It was a little noisy at night (service elevator) . it would have been nice to have a mini fridge but all in all nice experience. Love the sweet sleeper beds!!!

I have stayed at this hotel a number of times while visiting my son at the University of Tampa. Its a great location, has a beautiful pool, nice rooms and very nice staff.

Nice hotel, good location in tampa & free shuttle till 11pm.

Everything was fine. We were moving my daughter into the dorm at U of Tampa and the close proximity worked well for us. No complaints.

The accomodations on this quick business trip were perfect in and out all the must haves in the room fast internet and very clean room.

The staff were wonderful. Couldn't have been any better! The hotel was very, very nice. The view from the balcony was stunning. At night the lights along the river and on the bridges were breathtaking. We enjoyed our meal in the hotel restaurant. Wonderful hotel. Would love to stay there again!

We simply crashed after a fantastic evening. The room was spacious, clean and well proportioned with a balcony view. Good staff and valet too. Recommended for future stays near downtown Tampa.
