My husband and I stayed here March 9-13 so he could attend a business show in the Convention Center.
We opted for a water-view room with a balcony instead of the normal convention room and we are so glad we did. The room was awesome with a great view. Everything about this hotel is great except you have to pay $10/day for WiFi which is terrible. I could get on early in the morning but after that, forget it for the room. If you went down to the lobby it worked much better. Don't know why a convention hotel still charges for Internet?
My husband joined me for lunch on 2 days and we ate by the pool bar. The bartender is Jack and he is very friendly and helpful. The food we had was very good and worth the price.
The front desk staff and housekeeping are also very good. We only called once for something but it was brought right up to us.
The only negative thing I could say about the room, other then the WiFi, is there is no fan in the bathroom.
Also there is no refrigerator but you don't get those everywhere anyway.
Just FYI - there is a Publix supermarket about a half-mile away over the Platt St. bridge if you want to get some snacks, wine or beer and don't want to pay the high prices the hotel market charges.
Don't know if we will get back to Tampa but we would definitely stay here again if we do.
