“Very nice place to sleep”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

The staff was friendly and helpful, and we entered our room quickly. Room was very clean, quiet, and comfortable. The welcome snack at 5:30 was a nice surprise. However, there aren't a lot of eating choices to walk to near the hotel. The Papa's Diner down the street worked well--very down home. The airport shuttle was 20 mn late arriving. Was it from habit or traffic? The same shuttle picked us up one week earlier...also a bit slow even for 8:30 pm at night. I'm thankful I asked for the shuttle pick up 30 mn earlier than needed. This kind of timeliness could get some people to their plane late.

Dear Valued Guest,
Thank you very much for your feedback after your recent stay at Holiday Inn Express Tampa, especially for mentioning our very central location. But sorry to hear of your Experience with the van transportation due to high occupancy we can run up to 30 min late.

We've stayed at this Holiday Inn Express about two dozen nights over the past six months and our experience has been excellent each time. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast is varied and tasty. While this is not a 5-star hotel, it is certainly a good value for the price. They have renovations scheduled for spring of 2014 but it appears they've already begun to do the work in some areas such as the bathrooms. Occasionally, we've received an upgrade from a king room to a suite. The location is convenient to the airport, football stadium, restaurants, and most major highways. We've never had a bad experience or disappointment with our reservations or rooms. Would recommend this location for travelers just passing through or staying a few days for special events.

I travel 30 weeks a year across the Southeast. This trip I was greeted by Felicity at the front desk. This is the first time I've met or worked with her. Her attention to customer service, professionalism and energy were a refreshing experience.

Felicity made me feel confident I had made the right decision to stay at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites - Tampa Stadium Airport.

Congratulations to management on hiring someone who is so good with people and her job.

Steve from Maryland

We stayed one night pre-cruise at this Holiday Inn Express. It seems to be a well-used property, but our room was clean, breakfast was typical HIX chain fare, and we had no complaints. That’s pretty much all I require on a quick stay.

But I absolutely have to commend this property for outstanding customer service. From the minute I called for the shuttle from the airport I was impressed. Felicity assured us the shuttle was on the way and then called to follow up and make sure we found it. Our wait for the shuttle was quite reasonable, and our driver (Steven?) was an excellent and pleasant driver. Later we asked for a ride to a nearby restaurant and were accommodated with a smile.

When we checked in we were asked if we were taking a cruise and if we needed transportation to the pier. We said we would need a taxi and Felicity told us the hotel shuttle would take us for a much more reasonable fee and reserved our spot for the next morning. Wow. This saved us a bunch of money, and right then we decided that we will stay at this hotel before our next cruise too!

So, if you are looking for fancy, luxurious accommodations, this isn’t your hotel. But, if you are looking for five-star customer service… this is it!

Ripped curtains, rust in the bathroom, inadequate number of towels, poor TV reception, freezing hallway, and apparently not enough water pressure to accommodate everyone with hot showers when the hotel has a lot of people staying there. Won't stay there again.

We came to see Deadmau5 at the stadium and were very pleased when we arrived and saw how perfect and convenient the location was. The shuttle dropped us off at the stadium (the police don't allow them to pick you up from the stadium) we walked back and it took only 7-10 minutes. It was dark but we felt safe and lots of people walked with us.

The staff was very nice and helpful. They genuinely cared that we enjoyed our stay. Our room was clean and had a refrigerator and microwave. It's a great hotel for the price. If you are looking for a affordable place in Tampa I highly recommend you stay here.

From start to finish our experience was outstanding. We held our first ever fire symposium and the hospitality was tremendous . The room was well taken care and the guest services were very accommodating. We have already planned our second seminar coming up in January 2014 and we don't expect anything less than superior service.
