Great experience

This is a hidden gem. We spent a wonderful quiet weekend here and we were very pleased with our experience. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Staff was courteous and helpful. We will likely visit them again in the future.

Description and pictures totally misleading

The hotel is more a extended stay type or appropriate for spring break kids than a hotel for a nice weekend vacation. Just a horrible look, cinder blocks type of design, bizarre room layout with our bed right next to the window facing the hallway...we could hear people walk by all night long. The person who took the pictures for the web page of the hotel is a fantastic photographer because the hotel looks nothing like the pictures

Staff made sure all was happy

When I checked into the designated room late at night, I was very dissapointed. The furnishings were mediocre and the view was not as expected. Yes, I could see the gulf but the parking lot and pool distracted from it's beauty since it was in the forefront and the unit was set way back from the water. The next morning when my concerns were voiced, the day staff was WONDERFUL about finding better accomadations. They switched me to a newly furnished suite that was very lovely and the balcony was right on the water's edge. Had a great and memorable stay!

Sailport

Was more like a condo than a hotel. Great location and if you get the right room it's so close to the water you feel like you're on a boat. Room was okay. The view was pretty sweet. They weren't very clear about checkout. I asked the maid if we could leave at 1 an she said yes. The phone rang at 12:20 asking if we were checking out. Then I told them we would be out by 1. They said that would be a $20 fee. I told them about the maid so hopefully they didn't charge my card. Anyway, checkout is noon not 1 like some other hotels around here. Staff were lazy and unattentive but I can deal with that. I stayed at the Westin and Doubletree and Sailport was better. It wasn't as nice, but the view!

Scenic location close to airport

A refreshing change from the usual airport hotels. This is right on Tampa Bay, 5 minutes from the airport, with its own little beach and sand volley ball. Every room has a balcony and view of the bay. The bedroom was noisy due to trucks in the early morning, and the fridge ice maker was noisy but we were able to unplug it. Unlike a lot of hotels, their suites are really suites -- bedroom, living room with sofa bed and kitchen. Would be nice if they had a breakfast area.

Short walk to the Rusty Pelican for dinner. For breakfast you need to drive to another hotel or restaurant in Tampa or Clearwater.

Great Stay!

Great stay - in town for Spring Baseball and the Sailport Watetfront Suites is well located and beautiful. Much closer than St Pete or Clearwater but still a waterfront property. Several places to eat close by - staff very friendly. Highly recommend!
