Good price, somewhat decent

Dec 4th, 2019

Decent hotel. Staff friendly, lobby quite nice. Pool not very clean. Rooms clean but pretty cheap looking. Was given wrong room keys and also no hot water in the bathtub, which sucks in the middle of winter. Other than that, you pretty much get your money’s worth here. But I’ll probably spend a bit more for a nicer place next time. Overall, satisfied. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Only IHG Property in this part of Tampa

Nov 4th, 2019

We arrived just before 3 and were checked in by Ricardo, who I later learned is the Front Desk Manager. He acknowleged my Spire status and offered free breakfast, but I said I had already booked breakfast with my room. He seemed to not be able to see this on his screen? He then found it. I asked for an upgrade due to my status and received a King Suite, which is basically 2 connecting rooms in this 25 year old building. He also offered a free drink or points. Since I have so many points, I said I would take the drink and could I have 2 since there were 2 of us; he gave me 2 drink coupons. We stopped by after our fancy dinner at University of Tampa so I could get 2 beers to take back to the room. I had Stella Artois draughts. Roberto also gave me a special parking card to place on my dashboard so I then went back to my car and moved it from near Cypress to the special designated Spire/Platinum spaces along Westshore. (Note: It is much easier when coming from town to take Lois to Cypress and then turn left on Westshore and take the easy entrance into the hotel parking lot-also an easy turn to head towards Kennedy and downtown when leaving-this avoids doing a U-turn on Cypress and then circumnavigting the entire hotel parking lot!) On the way to the room, I realized that I only had one breakfast coupon and according to the wording, it was for only "1" breakfast. Not only had I paid for breakfast in advance, I would have expected 2 anyway based on my status once I found out their policy. (Spire and Platinum receive access to the lounge, which is closed on weekends so breakfast coupons are given instead) The room, as I said, was 2 former, connecting rooms. I liked the fact that both had full bathrooms, and since there were 2 of us-separate bathrooms, each with tub/shower combo, sink, and toilet. The room we entered first (we later found out that our key worked for both rooms, but the bedroom door had no posted number) had a large sofa that could seat 8-10 people and was a corner design. There was a desk, TV, and dresser in each room. Both dressers had fridges. The living room had a microwave on top of the dresser plus a comfortable easy chair under a light as well. The bedroom had a desk, dresser (with fridge), and TV as well with a Keurig coffee maker between the desk and dresser. Both bathrooms were almost identical with one possibly slightly larger. There were ample HI amenties of soap, shampoo, conditioner, etc. and even mouthwash in one bathroom. The towels were many and soft and fluffy. The bed was so very comfortable. I don't believe there was a duvet, but the sheets were so smooth and silky. There were nice long pillows with 2 firm and 2 soft although both mine seemed firm, which I like! The mattress was also great, maybe just a tad softer than I prefer but still gave a great night's sleep with no back issues the next day. Everything was clean, and despite the age of the original hotel, the updates that had been done were decent with no old, musty smells and weird color schemes. They said that more updates are to be made in the next 2 years so I look forward to staying there afterwards, if not before many times. My only suggestion since it's an airport/business/cruise ship hotel is that a safe is added to each room. Those traveling may have passports and/or money that need safe keeping if one decided to go out for dinner or even just downstairs for drinks. At breakfast, we seated ourselves and then were approached by Shasta, who took great care of us. She brought us coffee, a juice for my other half, and a large glass of water for me. My breakfast coupons included the full breakfast with eggs made to order so I requested an egg white omelet and then was told I could only have 3 choices. Originally, I had requested all veggies except onions plus cheese. I narrowed it down to spinach, mushrooms, and cheese, but Shasta may have added peppers as well! While my omelet was cooking, I went over to the front desk to ask questions such as 1) what is the actual policy for Spire status and breakfast? 2) how secure is the parking garage, and is it true that the cruise parking rates are really as great as they looked on the website, 3) and just some that came to mind in conversation. I didn't get the new guys name, but the daytime manager, Brandi, arrived and answered all of my quesitons. I then returned to my breakfast just as my omelet was arriving. I added some pork bacon, turkey sausages (not the best-should change brands), and one wedge of hash browns ( which was a bit soggy) and returned to my table where my omelet and toast that I had made when we first arrived were waiting. I asked Shasta about sugar free jelly, but there was none so I had just regular grape! Everything was good, especially the bacon and the omelet. Shasta got me some more water for the big glass she had provided and a coffee to go for my other half. I wanted to leave a tip on my room so Shasta gave me a bill for 1 cent so I could do such. We returned to the room to shower and prepare for our return drive home to Orlando. I was very happy with everything and now consider this my go-to hotel in this part of Tampa. Once I figured out where to park and found out about the Spire benefits, I felt more comfortable. The 8th floor room was great with good views and also no noise from outside or from the hallway. I really look forward to the completed project of the entire property in the next few years. I hope they stay in the IHG family unlike 2 properties nearby: 1 of which was the worse example of its brands anywhere in the world and the other which recently changed brands to be more foo foo (spa/boutique??). Only time will tell, but for now, I like what I experienced and about the future plans! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
