My family and I were going on a 7 day cruise. So we decided to stay a few days early in Tampa. We wanted some place affordable, comfortable, close to the airport and port but nice. We're accustomed to staying at 4 - 5 star hotels.
Well this hotel fit all our requirements and more. I don't know if it's rated a 4 star hotel but the service sure felt like it and actually better than some of the other high end hotels we've stated.
Some nice perks were the free shuttle service to the mall and airport, Internet access, delicious complimentary breakfast, the pool and basketball court to work off the great breakfast.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which was a nice upgrade provided by the wonderful staff: Samantha and Kendall Williams.
Although the amenities at this hotel were great, the staff was really what set it apart from other places we've stayed. They felt more like family friends than hotel staff. They always went beyond the call of duty and made us feel like welcomed family guests.
We had to stay one more day after our cruise and the difference between some of the service we received from carnival cruise vs what was provided here at this hotel was night and day. Carnival Cruise line might want to have their staff learn from the folks at this hotel.
Either way I highly recommend this hotel for families or business folks. You'll be treated like family without all the fluff of some higher priced hotels. We'll be back.
