Second time to stay 2 nights per stay in this hotel in the past 5 months. Both times multiple small issues with the room. I have another booking and will look for another hotel. Hotel in transition but the rooms looked the same although they said they were remodeled. No complaint with decor & bedding. Safe could not be programmed...

Currently staying here and I am travelling from Europe and needed a power adaptor. The response from "guest services" was sorry, we loaned our last one out five days ago (no one immediately ordered more??). Called front desk and was like, 'yeah, we usually have to order that kind of thing'. I asked, well, do you plan to get more?...

I stayed here on business and would have preferred a closer proximity to the conference center, but this was a quick cab/uber ride. It's what I would have expected in this price range in regards to the rooms and building. Large, clean rooms with all the essentials. Beautiful building with a nice bar (martinis were delish!) and restaurant. There is...

This was the Tampa Intercontinental for many years and only switched to the SPG/Marriott flag a week ago. The transition has not been seemless. The front desk check-in took longer than it should have and an awkward line forms in the lobby blocking elevator access. The overall feel of the property is very impersonal with no special touches. The room...

Stumbled onto this hotel while on business recently in Tampa. Apparently this hotel had just recently been changed from the Intercontinental to Starwood's brand. Seems to be a smooth transition and it's a very credible place to stay. Good location for my Tampa business needs. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Front desk check in could have been a little smoother,...

The hotel was nice but a bit pricey. The location of the hotel was very convenient (it was Intercontinental when we visited), close to the mall and easy access to highway, Arrive to the hotel at 4 pm and our rooms was not ready. I did not understand how this was possible but the staff handle it quite nicely by...

As many reviews state, this is a decent hotel, but by no means luxury, even though they try to act like it. On the up side, the location is good (across the street from a mall and a $6 Uber ride to the Soho bar/restaurant area), the rooms are clean, the employees are nice, and the parking is free. However,...

Great area! I usually stay at the Grand Hyatt but on this trip I opted for a change. Good choice, modern hotel with amenities, beautiful, spacious rooms too. Staff was energized and attentive to all requests. Breakfast at Shula's was perfect. Would definitely stay here again.

Simple requirements when I travel for business. Here's what I got: 1. Fruit flies flying in our face during lunch. 2. A nice view into the office building next door when I opened up the shades in my room (it was so close I could read the screen of someone's computer in their office) 3. Hot water took 15 minutes...
