Good Business Hotelfrom Sketchdnky
Ummmmmm...okay...I guess?from RueStPeter718
Check in was not overly friendly or attentive. Not what I've come to expect as an Hhonors upper tier member, or as a guest of any hotel, frankly. Arrived around 12:30 on a Friday and was told by the young lady (J) that, nope, nothing ready. It may have well been the case, but it was the 'Too bad, so sad, see ya', wouldn't wanna be ya' attitude that was so out of character for Hilton properties. No 'Can Do' attitude here as Doubletree professes. No biggie; we simply left and came back a couple of hours later. Other staff we encountered seemed friendly.
While they've tried to update, I had a general 'ick' feeling when I was in the room. Maybe it was just more of a 'blah' feeling--I can't quite put my finger on it. Housekeeping seemed to have done a fine job in the room. But the fridge was positively archaic, as were the bi-fold style closet doors which separated the bedroom from the LR area. The big stain on the BR ceiling from the blowing (or the intake?) of the AC was more than obvious, and things like this are easy to take care of. Oh, yeah--the chocolate or BBQ sauce smeared throughout the in-room dining menu prompted us to head out for dinner instead. At least I'm praying it was chocolate or BBQ sauce...
Having said all of this, the view was indeed beautiful, and the pool area was very relaxing with above par pool towels available and a fabulous ocean breeze. Basically, the beach minus the sand. As a gal who grew up in FL, I can live without the sand! This alone MIGHT make me tolerate the other things if I were given an offer I couldn't refuse. We paid $99 for the night with a AAA discount. I wouldn't pay anything higher, and suspect I'd have to find an even better deal to return.
Had a Wonderful Stayfrom redshoetraveler

Very nice stayfrom Barneslover
We usually stay in 4 or 5 star hotels, and seeing as this was a 3 star hotel we weren't expecting much. However, we really enjoyed our short stay. Parking was a breeze, check-in was quick and efficient and our room far suprassed our needs. The hotel is an all-suite facility and we had more than enough space to move around in. Everything was clean and we felt very comfortable in our surroundings. The bed was extremely comfortable and we both slept soundly.
The clock on the nightstand was illuminted in a way that made it very easy to tell the time, however, it wasn't an irritating neon glow that would normally bother me while trying to sleep away from home. The blinds really kept the morning sun out of our room. When we did open the blinds in the morning, we were treated to an excellent view of the water and the water fowl inhabiting the area. Although the pool was drained and going through a rehab, we didn't mind because the temperature was somewhere in the 40s.
We left our breakfast room service order on the door after we checked in (around 10:30 pm) and our breakfast arrived hot and tasty at the requested hour the following morning.
We enjoyed our very short stay and will certainly consider staying here again in the future. The room had ample space and is in a great location for anyone who is visiting the Tampa area. We hope to stay there in the future when we go to see the Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. :)

Good hotel for the pricefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Nice hotelfrom MSTR
Terrible, tired old hotelfrom Charpature
My boyfriend and I booked this hotel for an overnight stay in Tampa to visit friends. The picture on the website looked promising, was reminiscent of the Contemporary in Disney. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful.
The room itself was....tremendously lacking. I was impressed with the size, and the seperate living/bedroom areas. However, the dining room table was absolutely filthy, with crumbs in the space between the top of the table and the sides and what looked like ketchup stains. The carpets looked very dirty. The TV in the bathroom (yes, there is a very small b/w tv by the toilet in the bathroom) did not receive picture - but also looked like it had not been cleaned in years. Not something you want to see in an appliance near a toilet. The gauzy lining of the drapes by the computer desk had what looked like to be a few old blood stains. I slept in the bed wondering when was the last time the mattress pad had been cleaned. The decor itself was very out-dated.
I am not a very picky person at all, but I was grossed out to even touch the remotes. The high speed internet service was $6.95/day. I would have been happier at the Holiday Inn Express.
Top Local Tips for Tampa
hit the beaches but tampa is not the place to do that - yhou have to drive to clearwater. if you're not there in summer, disney is 1 1/4 hour away (universal a bit further)
Know the neighborhoods of Tampa Tampa and the Clearwater Beach area have awesome things to do and great hotels but check out Trip Advisor before booking a hotel. You want to know the neighborhood you are picking to stay in. Traffic is also a consideration so make sure your location to stay matches your itinerary.
Try Bern's Bern's Steakhouse has a national reputation for excellence. Based on our experience, it is well-deserved. The service is outstanding and the wine selection is virtually without peer. The steak is prepared to perfection (Of course, there are other alternatives), and soup, salad, baked potato, onion rings and home-grown vegetables are included with your entree. The price is surprisingly reasonable. As first-time visitors, we were offered a tour of the kitchen and wine cellar, about five minutes. Make reservations for the dessert room. Many tasty options, though pricey. Again, knowledgeable servers and a funky atmosphere make the dessert area a good way to wrap up a memorable evening of fine dining.
