We came to this hotel for the Blue Angel Airshow and loved it. Arriving on Thursday afternoon, we were quickly checked into a corner room on the 5th floor. I'm usually a Hampton Inn customer so the extras in this hotel were a treat. The linens are superb and the bathroom is very nicely done. There is a large frameless, glass shower stall as well as a full sized tub.
The rooftop pool are bar were a pleasure. We went up for drinks and appetizers Thursday afternoon. The pool is a nice touch. Only 4 feet at the deepest, it was perfect for us loungers and for those with small kids. The Airshow was practicing while we were in the pool so that was a bonus to see the Blues fly over from in the pool.
There was a charity event on Thursday in which the Tampa Bay Rays players were guest bartenders. Each week had a different charity. The hotel restaurant for breakfast was reasonable and the food was good. Here's a tip. Get your coffee from the free dispensor upon entering the dining room. If you order from a server, they have to charge for it.
There is no business center but laptops are available for loan. I just wanted to print my boarding passes for the following day so the desk clerk allowed me to come behind the desk to do so. My friends and family got a kick out of seeing me behind the desk when they entered the hotel.
The Wyvern seems to be a big part of the community. Along with the charity events at the roof bar, they also were sponsors of the airshow. The staff was friendly and accomodating.
Two minor things - our room, even though on the 5th floor could not hear the weekend music with the windows closed but others in our group could. I could see how that would be annoying. Also, the key cards had to be redone twice.
