Downtown stay to visit daughter at UT
Posted Sep 5, 2016 on Hotels
Great location downtown, close to everything and easy to locate. The hotel is a bit older, but considering it is a downtown hotel, this is a pretty decent place for the money. Staff is amazing. General Manager is pleasant and very welcoming. The morning front staff is warm and welcoming, above an beyond the ordinary! Smart and pleasant individuals, they actually made the minor things feel very minor. The hotel itself is starting to show signs of wear, but they do keep up with everything. The pool and spa area are maintained and an enjoyable little area to relax; even has a small basketball area and plenty of seating to relax and grill. The hot breakfast is very good, they switch it up slightly each day to add variety and it saved us 20.00 each day in breakfast expenses, which is a plus! Coffee available all day. Decent place overall and would stay again. parking fills fast, if your planning to go out be back by 1am or you will have to park in overflow lot which actually wasn't as bad as others reviewed. We will be regular Tampa visitors, since our daughter attends the University of Tampa now and so far this has been one of the most pleasant and stressfree visits. We have stayed at a couple resorts just outside of Tampa and I have to admit that we received more here than the resorts offered and much better treatment by staff, not to mention there is plenty to do in the area!
