The safe would not operate, we contacted the front desk and even after they said it was fixed it would not work. Our room was never cleaned, and we did not opt for environmentally friendly service. As a result, all our towels were left on the floor dirty. Our key needed to be reset every day.

Staff was nice

Great location. Hotel lacked a few amenities we would have preferred. A full restaurant serving 3 meals a day. Rooftop pool area very small. Don’t get a room on 11th (top floor) the rooms never cool down below 76 degrees. Service and staff friendly.

I liked the location. What I didn’t like was where the microwave was kept, no coffee pot in the hotel, and not enough plugs to charge up devices.

Should advise the cost of parking prior to reservation.

Great and inexpensive

Very clean

Gone to hell in a hand basket

Great stay $14 a day to park

Older Front desk employee doesnt know how to put a mask on his face. 9/10 hotel guests don’t understand or care about any of the safety steps the hotel. The hotel isn't enforcing any of the procedures. Many guests refuse to wear a mask indoors, pack elevators. Had a 2 day stay, left 6 hours after my arrival didnt feel safe here dont want to get sick. Same partially masked front desk worker didnt even ask why we were checking out 6 hours after arrival.

I love this place. Nice, Clean and quite. This is definitely my go Hotel when visiting Tamp.

Unfortunately due to Covid-19 there was no restaurant / breakfast availability. Had to travel outside the facility for all meals.

Pictures online are very misleading! They had NO rooms with outside views! What you may not be aware of is that half this hotel is actually for business—offices, conference rooms etc. All rooms over look a main lobby area which you can see “Jimmy from HR” across the way!! This is definitely a hotel for a business trip!! Not the Tampa vacation I was looking forward to. Pool is very old and outdated. Didn’t try the restaurant or the coffee bar.

The courtyard arboretum was amazing and beautiful. Great on site parking garage.

Would like to have ice available 24hrs on my floor and vending machine, instead of needing to go done to front desk.

Not sure how this is a 4 star hotel. Water was cut off with little notice. Airport shuttle stinks.

The bartender Samantha, first of all, was top notch. She made our weekend very special. Our experience with her was the highlight of our stay there. The room was clean, well decorated, and practical. I think it would be nice if breakfast had been included. The buffet was just okay. The food at Shula's was delicious and the service there was great. Our waiter, Paul, took very good care of us. Overall it was a very pleasant stay and experience.
