Brutally honest is what's called for. First the Very Bad. Room itself spacious yet in DIRE need to be updated and refurbished. Sofa bed was impossible to sleep on. Holes in the walls and a clogged up tub did not make this some of the best experiences. Asking for 3 extra towels became a 2 hour dilemma or a simply...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 January 2017 via mobile

we stayed for 2 nights and it was great! huge room, free hot huge-spread breakfast, and wonderful views. We had a small issue with the people next door to us being really really loud in the middle of the night, but the front just took care of it in less than 5 minutes. Very friendly and helpful staff from The...

Breakfast was nice even when crowded. Staff was attentive and timely. Valet is $24 per day. The pool was warm and relaxing. Everything was clean and comfortable. Loved the area as well! There is a boardwalk near the hotel and plenty of places in walking distance.

Went for an outing with my wife to watch the Tampa Bay Lightning game and wanted to have a place to go to after without driving all the way home. Unfortunately our trip corresponded with the State Thespian outing for all the high schools in Florida. The teenagers were loud, unruly and had no respect for other hotel patrons. Their...

The hotel is a typical Embassy Suites by Hilton. This chain is my first choice when booking my business travel. My terrible experience included an early departure fee that is not mentioned on any website I could find. My company uses Concur to book our business travel. This fee is not mentioned nor is the fact the only parking allowed...

Very clean. Great beds and furniture. Large rooms. Perfect location downtown. Very good breakfast and very good attentive staff. They just need to do something about late night guest noise. Very loud unruly guests seem to be the norm.

The hotel was just ok. Very worn tho. Definitely could use a makeover. Pool was nothing more than a lap pool. Couches in rooms were horrible - you sunk in to the middle. Every chair you sat in whether in the restaurant area or breakfast/reception area was like the middle section was blown out! Each time you sat for breakfast...
