How to Get There
The hotel is completing renovations and is looking good. From a distance, the hotel doesn't impress much, but up close it's a different story. I thought the main entrance was a bit confusing. It looks like a back entrance because there are no major signs showing the way to the main doors, although the walkway up the main doors is beautifully done. They just need to add some signage or other indicators that this is the main entrance. The lobby and bar/seating area are very nicely done, with swing seats, indoor shuffleboard, which we enjoyed. I was there for a group event and we were very well treated. Maria T, who managed our banquet order, was patient and flexible in addressing our changes and questions. Maria and Marco, in F&B, were so helpful with our day-to-day needs in getting our meals and snacks set up and addressing any other meeting room needs we had. There were some glitches in billing for breakfast, incorrect room rates for some of our meeting attendees, and final invoicing, but Maria T and others made sure all the billing errors were corrected within 1 business day.
The hotel was beautiful. Service everywhere was great. Their breakfast is very good and convenient but Flavio was spectacular - best waiter in town!!! He should get a raise - he made my stay! I will come back.
Hotel is in transformation to a new brand and they could do a better job with signage and information about the transition, but overall the stay was good. The staff is very friendly and nice and helpful whan issues arose.
First off the hotel as of this date is undergoing renovation but is still very livable. Our room was one of the just completed ones and was great. Comfy bed and and all new furniture, Very nice. Not sure about the sliding"barn door" type bathroom door in the room and I imagine there my be some pinched fingers in the future. The restaurant and bar are staffed by friendly people and we had a great time playing the games in the lounge. Pool area is being upgraded with a pool bar and while currently usable will be a great addition and a great place to hangout when completed. Front desk staff was very welcoming and helpful. We really had a great time and enjoyed our stay and the only reason I did not give it 5 stars is the ongoing reno. The property will be changing brands to Hilton early summer and assuming a new name. Too ban for IHG but good news for Hilton. I am a loyal IHG patron but if going back to Tampa I may need to switch to Hilton. At least to sample the hotel after the renovation is complete.
Have been going to this hotel for a couple years for business. Good location walking distance to the mall and great location to drive to different points in Tampa. GReat service. Flavio at the breakfast restaurant always very attentive and caring, no matter how busy they get. Thank you Flavio!
