The hotel was awesome. Great location for cruisers, right downtown with free shuttle to the port. Large, comfortable rooms. Excellent free hot breakfast bar. Will definately stay here again if we get back to Tampa.
Room was large and extremely comfortable. Great staff too

I arrived at the hotel and was immediately greeted by the front office clerk. She checked me in quickly and even allowed me to apply my stay to my Marriott rewards account. I was given keys and directions for the parking lot, got my things, and went up to my room. I decided to take a nap and to my surprise the bed was a pillow top, with down pillows and comforter. I went to my concert and came back and watched TV on an unusually comfy couch as well. There were more than enough towels for my shower the next morning. I checked out and was on my merry way.
Beds were extraordinarily comfortable.
Bland breakfast food.

This was our second stay at this hotel. We enjoyed it very much last time. This time however, it was not as good. The major complaint I have is that the pool was cold. Arriving from snow country, we were looking forward to enjoying a swim, but the water was freezing. We complained but for the entire 4 days we were there, the temperature did not improve. Otherwise, this hotel is a great find. The staff is extremely friendly. The studio room is nice with lots of space. And it is sufficiently clean. The kitchen with fridge, micro, and dishwasher is very convenient. And the dishes, glasses and cutlery make it easy to eat in. The breakfast each day was good. Lots to choose from and replenished quickly. The manager's reception included 3 types of wine, 2 types of beer, and snacks which changed each evening. During our stay we had chicken noodle soup, Caesar salad, garlic bread, chili with chips, cheese and crackers, veggies and dip, etc. It was a nice way to relax with fellow travellers in the evening. The hotel is family friendly and even has a basketball court to use, but it usually is filled with business travelers. There is not much to do in the immediate area, but we went out in the evening for a walk and felt quite safe. The parking lot is gated and costs $8/day. All in all, this hotel is a good deal for the price and I would stay there again.
Good breakfast and manager's reception, very friendly staff.
The pool was cold, the bed was too soft.

Does HotelsByCity recommend this hotel?
Former guests at this hotel say they received incredible value for their money. Many commented that this was a downtown hotel with good facilities and the prices were those you would expect to pay in an inn away from the city. Plus points were the free cocktails at the manager’s reception, a quality complimentary breakfast and an efficient and friendly crew of employees. There were complaints that there was a $8 parking fee in a lot across from the hotel. But parking in any city is not cheap. Parking in Manhattan probably costs more than a day spent here.
