Good place to stay when coming in from a late flight.
Was disappointed with breakfast choices.
good location for TAM airport. Good selection of resturants nearby
Shuttle only ran every 45 minutes in early morning and often could not take everyone waiting, so trip to airport was delayed for 15-20 minutes, plan accordingly.
-Close to airport -Easy check in and check out -Comfortable beds - Easy to find
-Cold pool -No hot tub - Not secure enough -No 24hr airport shuttle
The IHOP across the street was the best thing about the hotel.
My husband and I were late with our flight to Tampa out of our control, (plane issues). We paid for the hotel 2 weeks prior and requested a non smoking room. We called the hotel letting them know we will be arriving around 12-1am. We landed at Tampa called again to have them come pick us up with their shuttle and asked if our non smoking room was still available. The front desk lady said yes it is. We arrive after 8-10 hours of traveling and at the desk told our room was given away. The last non smoking room was given away 5 mins after my call for the shuttle pickup. I'm pregnant and my husband has asthma so we were livid it was given away. They overbooked and the next available hotel was 15 miles away. Also, they had people waiting if we didn't want the room. On the reservation it said non-smoking room. They said because we arrived so late we were pushed to the bottom and were moved to a smoking room. They said the non smoking option is just a request and no guarantee of getting a room. The front desk lady had such an attitude with us and couldn't explain why she gave the room away when we just spoke to her on the phone. Luckily we were compensated for this mistake but I would not recommend this hotel. Im very easy going not high maintenance but this was the worst by far i had. Horrible parking and the front desk lady said no guarantee of break ins also could get towed and there was no parking for hotel guests. They assistant manager said there is no policy about holding rooms regarding smoking or non smoking. But that in itself seems like a violation if I'm pregnant and husband has asthma and we get moved to a smoking room vs requesting a non smoking room. I would recommend to not stay at this hotel even tho it is close to the pier for the cruise.
