                        Stayed here as my husband was running in the half marathon.

                        Perfect location to the marathon and activities on the water.

                        Very disappointed in the food service provided. I booked the room and payed more to include the breakfast but they did not accommodate the marathon runners. The race started at 6 am and nothing was open food wise they didn't open until 6:30am. Even the star bucks was closed. They closed the breakfast at 10:30 so if you ran in 2 races which my husband did you couldn't get back in time for 10:30 before they closed and they told me that they close at 10:30 am on the dot. Since the marathon had announced the huge amount of money that is brought into Tampa from the Marathon runners I would think you would of provided the runners better food service. Turned out we had to check out and stop for food on our way back to Orlando. We flew in from Canada for this marathon. So that was disappointing.

                        The breakfast was excellent and the free drinks in the evening where are nice way to start the evening.

                        I didnt like the parking situation. You had to valet and it was an extra $20 a day charge which I was unaware of until I checked in.

                        Glass elevators with an inside and outside view. The manager's reception. Free breakfast.

                        Looong lines for the free breakfast.

                        Great location. Very polite and skillful garage staff.

                        Average and boring room design, empty mini bar, living room without window, only 2 elevators - big crowd and long waiting required when hotel is full, poor breakfast food quality, atmosphere in the hotel was too noisy and hectic (hotel was full with high school children..), presentation and quality of food ordered by room service was very low and dishes and plates were not clean... In general, totally overpriced hotel for the comfort and service provided. Great disappointment for an King Suite Bay View hotel room for 279$ per night !!!

                        It is comfortable close to the convention centre and the breakfast is fabulous and very varied.

                        I have not experienced anything that I did not like. It was all fine to me.

                        The view from our room was beautiful. The room was second to none. The hotel was beautiful. The pool had a nice view.

                        We didn't like the restaurant at the hotel. Food was over cooked and waitress was not very attentive.
