I was in town for a concert at the Amalie Arena and didn't want to drive back to my home on the east Florida coast the same night. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and the room was great. I would stay there again. The usual downsides to a downtown hotel, like having to pay a lot for parking and no spots available in the valet lot. Also, the only way I could find to get from the part of the 3rd floor where the catwalk from the garage/City of Tampa building and the conference rooms were was to go down the escalator to the lobby and then take a second set of elevators to the guest rooms (I was on the 8th floor).
Clean room. Good size Restaurant in hotel has poor service and doesn't seem clean. Wouldn't eat there
We had a room on the top floor. The front desk staff was friendly, the room was a good size. Only 10 minutes to get to the straz center downtown. We woke up to people yelling down the hall to each other and a woman using very foul language. I acknowledge this isn't the hotels fault, but if I stayed again I would ask for s room far away from the elevator. The walls are pretty thin to the outside so you could clearly hear other people's conversations as they walked by our room.
Staff was great from the moment i stepped in. Restaurant in hotel, night club, pool, basically all you need. Room was cleaned and smelled great. The room wasnt luxurious, like marble baths, but was clean and provided all we needed. Door to the room opened outside. Room had 2 full sized beds, not queens. (My fault for not double checking) We were positioned close to the night club and listened to thumping at 10pm when we went to sleep. We had a 5am wake up, so we missed the am breakfast that starts at 7.
Close to Airport No shuttle at night; Breakfast not included; outside (motel) doors; Could hear highway traffic; Restaurant opened 15 minutes late;
The check in process was very slow and not very friendly. I did not know the hotel was garden style, appearing to be more of a motel. The room was very dank, both double beds visibly sank in the middle of the mattress. The bathroom was clean, but the molding in the bathroom was either not complete, or not cut or installed correctly. The hotel was extremely noisy, with a lot of activity (fighting) in the late night/early morning.
I wouldn't stay at this hotel for free!
The fact that its next door to a strip club Sink didnt work. Had to use shower to brush teeth.
room was clean and comfortable. Funky odor in the lobby.
Price Soggy , sticky carpet. AC leaked. One slow elevator, getting to our room was a challenge. NO continental breakfast, NO microwave in ea room (one $20 microwave next to ice machine)
With clean room....large bed....close to testing center of my daughter.....
Comfortable bed needs updating of furnishings and decor. Carpet tacks from bedrrom area to bathroom were exposed, painful!! Restaurant was expensive.
Clean room, close to Airport No hot water when we stayed (maintenance problem - but still a problem for us), no complimentary breakfast - not even coffee.
I liked the waterfront view. It was a nice view on the 6th flor and look out over the bay especially at night view. The size of beds were too small and the placement of the lights in the room didn't allow proper lighting. They were too bright over the bed. The rugs needed cleaning.
Clean and hospitable
The staff was very nice. The room was very modern. I didn't expect such a great experience. don't get me wrong I expected it to be fine but it exceeded just fine only drawback was that our lightbulb in the front hallway of our room was dead but everything else was perfect and even though we brought in Christmas away from home we still felt comfortable bringing it in there. I definitely look forward to staying there again on our next visit.
Everything was clean, room service was speedy, all in all a pretty enjoyable stay The pillows aren't that comfortable for my neck. I feel as if they were just puffs of air that didn't provide much neck support.
Great time for the New Years Celebration. Hotel was clean, room had a great view, and the people were very helpful. I would def come back and stay here again.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool was pretty and the boardwalks were scenic. Our shower fixture was broken but still usable. I let the staff know when we checked out about the issue.
The room and Hotel was very clean. The staff was excellent. Valet remembered us and was very personable every time we saw him. I can't remember the name of the front desk clerk when we checked in, he was very professional and helpful. This was our first time in the Tampa area and after our stay at the Hyatt we are ready to go back. The bed was very comfortable I never wanted to get out. I only have one complaint. Right after we checked into the room. Maintinence arrived at the request of the maid to fix the toilet paper roll in the wall. She had just walked in without knocking. After she saw us in the room she explained and did not know that we had checked in at the time.
Breakfast its decent and good. The room carpet, bed cover, chairs in room could be in better condition. The carpet was a bit dirty, the bed cver had a burned hole made by a cigarette and the desk chair looked dirty. Everything else was in good shape. Goot hot water, clean towels & cheats, safe area, really nice personel and sevice. Overall it's ok but to be honest I spected a better room condition and it to be a bit cheaper do to the condtion of the room. But its ok, after all i'm satisfied. Breakfast its decent and good.

Staff was super helpful! Close to everything! We will stay again!
Right in Ybor, perfect for parades! Breakfast buffet was not the greatest for the price. A little overpriced for the size of the rooms.
Proximity to down town Ybor city
Close proximity to Ibor City Had to pay for parking, nuts!!!!
La salle au plafond en mauvais état
Hôtel bien situé et salle de restaurant face au cours d'eau, ce qui est fort agréable. Equipement Wireless dans les chambre, ça marche super bien. Le repas du soir : la viande était froide et pas cuite, comme si elle était servie à sa sortie du réfrigérateur. Etant fatigué par de nombreuses heures de vol, je ne m'en suis pas plaint. J'ai eu tort !
ALL THE KIDS!
I went in thinking it was a better la Quinta, but was very disappointed when arriving. The rooms are old and outdated. Mold in the shower. Horrible neighborhood and RUDE staff. Spend a few more dollars and go somewhere else!
Location was great. We could watch the fireworks shows at Busch Gardens from our balcony or the pool. The breakfast was decent and the staff was friendly. The pool was nice and was open late....a nice cool off after walking around the park all day. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Walking distance to several restaurants. We wish that the hotel offered a shuttle to the park entrance. I would gladly pay the hotel something rather than pay the 17 bucks to park and still have to walk pretty far at Busch to the tram. We did try to just walk directly from the room to the park but with small kids it was kind of long.(about a mile). That's not any fault but our own ambition. We still had fun.
Morning continental breakfast was offered but with limited choices. Beds were old and not very comfortable. We actually asked for and exchanged rooms as the first one had a distinct animal smell. We asked and found out that La Quinta seems to pride itself on being "pet friendly". Thus, the resultant cat smell in our first assigned room. The second one smelled a little musty but did not have such an overpowering and distinct animal aroma. We would have moved to another hotel but had already pre-paid through a discount hotel locator.
Its the perfect location right by Busch Gardens and easy to find Room was DIRTY, there was hair and debris all over the bathroom floor. Red stains all over the carpet and the bottom of our door didn't properly close. Also, the staff was nice but we arrived to find all 3 outside smoking right by the entrance
This is an older hotel but the room was clean and the property was mostly well kept. Some parts of the hotel showed their age, shower would not stay at set temperature
After having to check out of a previous hotel for horrible conditions we were able to find a room at La Quinta. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The second room we stayed in had the strong odor of mildew, we tried to air the room out and spraying air freshener but it did not help.
Location 22 dollar valet only parking. Hotel outdated and marginally clean. Dirty carpet stained bathroom appliances and spots on bed linen.
Staff was amazing, room was great.
Location.close to the harbour and restaurants.beautiful view WiFi was not free. No free parking.
The surrounding area
Location and friendliness of staff Separate parking fee

I loved the location and the value for price. All the employees provided excellent customer service. Everything was awesome
Location. Close to Amelia Arena Old and in need of renovation. Carpets were old and worn out in hallways and lobby areas. Room was OK but needed updating in all aspects.

Location Room service was nonexistent
Location. We went to a hockey game at Amalie Arena and it was a fairly short walk, The room we had was nice but the view was of a rooftop and nothing else. From reading the reviews, I expected a better view.
Parking was an issue as a guest of the hotel a $10 fee to park in the parking deck which was reimbursed by the hotel or a $25 overnight valet parking fee which you did not get reimbursed on as a customer of the hotel you should have the option to valet your car without the $25 fee
The hotel has many facilities. It was further from the center as we thought and because of the casino (we assumed) the public was quite elderly, which we had not expected of a Hardrock hotel. Also too bad the breakfast was not included even though the rate was quite high (189 USD excl VAT)
casino and room booked smoking room did not det smoking room
Grand confort, pas trés loin de Ybor city et des malls ! Salle de sport et piscine, petit jardin intérieur! Parfait! Petit déjeuner non compris, tarifs de restauration sur place un peu cher
Le personnel était très gentil et serviable. Super chambre
L'autoroute a 100 m de la chambre. bruit la nuit. Je demanderais la chambre sur l'autre côté de l'hôtel la prochaine fois.
hotel was very clean and location was good
This is an excellent International Hotel, very conveniently situated for the Airport and for exploring Tampa. The restaurant is excellent and the the roof swimming pool is good too
We needed early check in and the staff was accomodating. Which after our arrival I understood why. They appearred to have very few guests. The hotel is mixed use part hotel and part office buildings. The view from our room was a view directly into business offices and vice versa. There is no way that you would feel comfortable opening the draperies. As the all the people that work in the offices have a totally unobstructive view into your room. Our selection was totally based on the proximity of the Hotel to the Airport and a mutual meeting location across the street from the hotel. Had I been aware of the office atmosphere I never would have considered this hotel. I did for the price expect a pleasant view and at least an illussion of privacy. There were several other hotels that were located
Clean, Great service
The room was wonderfully clean and fresh. Simmons Beautyrest Pillow Top King Bed ... wow ... slept like a baby! Very good location for an airport overnight
The roof top pool
Excellent quality of room, hotel and pool furnishings .Free internet and airport transfers
they have just about all you need on site pool side bar, lobby bar, sports bar and grill that was able to get our home town games for us, upscale 4 star restaurant and an excellent spa... we went to Florida to hit the beech and found our selves struggling to find a reason to leave our hotel spa services were amazing cant say enough about the experience, do yourself a solid and book a message. no on site parking you are forced to valet your car for 24$ a day and neither our booking site nor the mariot site see it fit to mention that... that said the valet service was good and we never had to wait long for our car
