No complaints. I would recommend thistle to anyone with a family and really wants to get in the heart of Tampa. The exercise room was well equipped although I did not get a chance to use it. The restaurants did clos early so expect to eat at the hotel which is not a bad idea.

I stayed at the Tampa Hilton this weekend while taking the Florida Bar Exam. It is an updated modern hotel with nice amenities and a beautiful ambiance.

The Room
The room was comfy with nice beds and very soft linens and pillows. The television was smaller than a standard 32 inch that we usually find in Hilton Hotels. When we arrived everything was clean and neat and we had a pretty view from the 8th floor. I only had 2 problems with the room. First, the bathroom was EXTREMELY small, probably the smallest that I have ever stayed in from a hotel at this star level. If your on the toilet you can wash your hands and take a shower (very, very small). The other problem I had was the coffee maker was filthy. It clearly had never been washed and even after attempts to try to wash it out, it was just too disgusting to use! They SHOULD really clean them.

The Atmosphere, the hotel location is in a clean and safe area and walkable. The hotel has 211 restaurant on the main floor with reasonably priced drinks. The hotel had a very, very nice business center with MACs, IPADS, and PCS for guest use. It boast lovely leather chairs and nice table area for conferences. Starbucks is on the main floor and though busy it was convenient. The main areas have fresh fruit water that is regularly restored and the staff was very pleasant and friendly.

I would highly recommend this Hotel and would not hesitate to stay again whenever I am in the Tampa area.


Tips: If you dont mind uncovered parking the lot next store to the hotel charges 8.00 per day as opposed to the hotels 17.00/day self park in the garage.

The hotel has a wide variety of food brochures if you are hungry and need food delivered to the hotel make sure to request them.

This Hilton is connected to the Tampa City Center which was perfect. In the court yard between the Hilton and City Center is a nice Sushi place as well as a nice deli. There is a causual mexican restaurant called Taco Bus on Franklin about 2 blocks away. There is a Tampa Salad Company across from the Hilton on North Tampa St. All were great places for lunch.

About .6 miles / 1km from hotel there is a Publix Grocery Store (which is an easy walk). A few blocks from there you can find the River Walk which is a 7mile paved walk way along the river/bay. Very Nice.

Hotel room was standard. It did have a small refrigerator which was good. No microwave. Bed and room were clean (although the carpet looked like it good use a good shampooing).

I would stay here again.

Great location, very up to date and friendly staff. Great room service menu. The ability to enjoy downtown attractions combined with the helpful staff made this a great business trip. If you just want to stay in, the service and food selections are good. Clean, quite even on the weekend and staff who are there to assure you have a great stay are what sets this hotel apart from others. I will be staying again in the very near future.

I wish I could have gotten to stay here longer. We only slept overnight and checked out the next morning. This hotel was popping! The cyber cafe in the lobby with Mac and PC's available was awesome. The room was nice! Very clean and beds were super comfy!

This is a nice conference hotel located in the heart of the commercial downtown and near attractions, within easy travel distance to the University of Tampa and the Hyde Park historic district. The hotel restaurant was a very pleasant surprise and quite good. The staff were friendly and helpful. A very enjoyable experience.

I stayed at the Hilton Tampa Downtown while I attended a conference at the convention center. The hotel lobby and common areas are very nice, modern, airy, clean, and welcoming. The staff is very friendly. The Starbucks in the hotel is convenient, though very busy. My room was great, spacious, modern, clean, nice bathroom. Comfortable bed with good, soft sheets. There's really nothing negative I can say about the hotel. The area is so so, not exactly exciting or lively. The one nice thing about the location of the hotel is how close it is to the Riverwalk. Note that you can take the Riverwalk to get to the convention center. it's a much nicer walk than the directions they gave me at the hotel (through downtown). I would say the distance to walk is pretty much the same but it can take less time because you don't have to wait at a couple of traffic lights where there is lots of traffic and red seems extremely long for pedestrians. Even if you don't have to go to the convention center, walk along the Riverwalk. It might be the nicest thing about Tampa. I recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

We would like to offer our appreciation for your stay at our hotel and providing us with a great feedback on TripAdvisor. Riverwalk does provide enhanced and scenic walk over to the Convention Center from our hotel and will ensure that our team provide that option. Thank you again for your suggestion and we hope to welcome you back to our hotel not too distant future.
