So much for a staycation.

First room we were given smelled stale. I asked to see a different room, even explaining that maybe that room had in a previous life been a smoking room and I was directed to another room on the same floor. Same stale smell. I kept my original room; until I couldn't stand it anymore. Found a different person at the front desk and she gave me keys to a room on a different floor. Viola! I guess the 12th floor is just stale. The bigger issue was I wanted to upgrade to a larger room but because I booked through a third party they couldn't accommodate me. Reminds me of an airline that wouldn't accept my money to upgrade to first class because of the type of ticket I purchased. Not sure I get it; money is money. Funny thing is, I would have received the same rate if I booked directly with the hotel.

Good Room + Nice Service

This hotel was done very nicely. Nice finishes and comfortable beds. Lobby was extremely nice, with space to work, plenty of computers and iPads, and 4 big TV's in a wall to watch news, sports, etc. There was also a nice orange/ice water to cool you down after a day out. Location was nice, around lots of restaurants and cafes. The hotel restaurant was nice, but like all hotel restaurants it was overpriced. The service was also very nice. Pool and Gym are nice. Pool is outdoor and is shaded by the building across the afternoon. The gym has mostly treadmills and ellipticals and only one machine--that was disappointing.

Great stay at the Hilton Tampa Downtown

We had a great weekend stay at the Hilton Tampa Downtown. Pros: Clean rooms Comfortable linens Business center with iPads and iMacs Happy hour at the bar on Monday-Fri from 4-7PM Friendly staff Central location-easily walkable Cons: Confusing parking-side lot for $16/day Room service hidden fees- Ordered 2 $13 entrees for breakfast, no drinks, total was $45. I would have appreciated any disclaimer of the additional charges. Overall, very pleased.

nice launch pad

The staff was very friendly and help full. Even though the room rates were low, auxiliary stuff like drinks, and parking were outrageous for Tampa standards. $7 for a mixed drink..$20 day valet parking, $17 day for self park.. Those kinds of things Erk me...

Great location for visiting Buc's fan

The experience was great. Rooms were well appointed, room service was good. Valet parking is the way to go for just a little more.

Decent hotel for the price

Decent hotel for the price. My only complaint was extremely noisy neighbors the second night... but I suppose that can happen at any hotel (and it wasn't so noisy that I couldn't sleep... just kept waking up due to it). I also noticed that the cleaning staff managed to track mud into the bathroom/on the bath-mat (which was clean when I left for the day... but muddy upon return). However, overall the room was clean and comfortable, the hotel staff friendly and accommodating, and the location was great.

Taco Bus is a short walk from this hotel (up the pedestrian Mall on Franklin St.). It has reasonable prices and very good food. There is also a nice French cafe nearby "L'Eden" on the corner of Madison and North Tampa.

Great Stay

Travel in the past to other hotels just seemed to be dirty less modern rooms. The Hilton had a clean feel to it, was spacious and such a soft comfortable bed. Would recommend to whoever thinks an extra $30-50 bucks for your stay is worth the level of comfort and ease about the place.
