The hotel itself was ok. The staff for Hilton honors seemed a bit arrogant. The treat that we were supposed to receive, we didn't. We had to ask for it that evening. The excuse given, was that they ran out. The guy at the Hilton honors desk was reluctant to give late check out. I felt that I was at...

It is a great place downtown to get everything you want. You get a better deal then the hotel across the street. Breakfast is awesome and I have never had a bad one at this hotel. Stay and relax if even for just a day.

We were in town for a convention Having a walk way bridge to the convention center was awesome. The breakfast was great as was the evening reception/snack time. The rooms were large and accommodating. Would recommend this hotel to anyone especially attending a convention.

Great hotel if you are going to anything at convention center or Amelie arena, very short walk to either. Rooms are all suites and nicely appointed, only negative is the elevators are a bit slow at busy times. They serve free drinks at happy hour and the best breakfast I have had in any hotel.

Stay here usually 2-3 times per year. Live 2 hours south of Tampa. Nice get away. Enjoy the trolley. Many things to see & do. The breakfast is always very nice. The evening reception also. Clean, and the staff is very helpful.

The AC leaked all over our luggage and left a damp spot on the floor. We mentioned it to our housekeeper twice and nothing came of it. Guess we should have called the desk in retrospect. The pool is tiny and the workout facilities match. We enjoyed the breakfasts.

Noisy: Water pipe noise in bedroom. Noisy fan (replaced due to bad bearings) after two requests. Four requests for shampoo. Location to convention center was convenient. Breakfast and happy hour nice perk. Pool was nice.

We booked thru a third party agency. On arrival I was told be customer service that our reservation was for 1 person and not 6 people. The agency made the mistake and thus we were told we could not have the complimentary breakfast or evening. Snack and drinks or pay additional 10 dollars per person. I never felt so humiliated...
