We stayed here for 3 nights as part of a kids' sports tournament. We had two rooms. The location is great, right on the water. The common areas are very nice. Modern and pretty. Breakfast in the restaurant was included, which was very good and the wait staff friendly. Front desk staff was pleasant. However, the rooms themselves are very...

We stayed in this hotel for one night and did not feel it was anywhere near worth the price we paid. Arrived approximately 45 minutes before check in and had to wait. When we could check in, a long line had formed. Tub in our room had a large peeling spot and drain was unbelievably slow. The balcony door to...

rooms aren't great but you get what you pay for. close to the airport and next to Beach (formally Hogans) which is probably the best part. If you have a Bay view than be sure to look out during sunset.

One of the worst experiences I've ever had. Hotel has the most ridiculous policies, they refused to accept cash when my card wasn't working until I threatened to go stay at another hotel, and they forced my friend to charge a bottle of water to the room instead of paying with his own card. No free wifi as advertised on...

We stayed at Bay Harbor for 1 night. The shuttle only runs until 11 p.m. I wish this was advertised as such. We just got a taxi instead to the hotel and it is a very short distance from the airport. Lobby has been recently renovated and is very tastefully done. Room (rm 121) smelled a little musty when we...

We recently stayed at The Bay Harbor Hotel for one night and really enjoyed it! Close to great restaurants, easy check in process, clean comfortable rooms and a gorgeous view of the bay. We would definitely recommend it. Our only complaint was that one of the elevators didn't work and the other one was extremely slow but otherwise we had...

I am not familiar with the Tampa area but the hotel was in a nice central location for the activities we had planned. The areas of the hotel that were being remodeled were nice but our room was not one of those areas. The beds were awful and uncomfortable. The bathroom was pretty gross. The balcony did not have dividers...

Always wanted to stay here. Even tho the surrondings are beautiful and the Lobby is great when checking in the rooms were a different story.
