Location -- next to the Riverwalk. Also, I am grateful that my second reservation (non-refundable) was canceled for free (that was unexpected, and the hotel management understood that). Bed was super comfy.
1) I didn't know this hotel accepts pets. I love pets, I have two cats at home, but in case of the hotel it usually translates to problems with cleanliness. Unfortunately, our carpet was dark and disgusting. 2) The smell in the hotel is weird. Maybe it's because of pets? 3) The breakfast is very weak: it costs >$10 for a coffee and cereal. I couldn't find anything warm or healthy there.
Location, cleaners of the room
Noisy, awful pool, poor food and beverages options
As soon as we pulled in, we were greeted by the valet. I so wish I could remember their names but they were both friendly, courteous and so helpful to help us navigate around. Check in was smooth and easy. Michelle at the WXYZ bar is AMAZING! She suggested food/drinks prior to our concert that were outstanding. Thai wings are a must have. We can't wait to get back up there to see her! And the artwork is so beautiful and eclectic. Worth a stop in just to view.
The coffee was lacking, not sure what brand/type that was but completely undrinkable. Stated breakfast was included, but you had to fill out a form and wait and the bowls that came out looked small. Everything was tagged with a price that seemed a bit high, so we opted to eat elsewhere.
The location was great. We could walk to Amalie Arena in no time. They upgraded our room to one with a river view as it was my birthday. The staff were super friendly and the room was spotless. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Very clean and modern, in a great location.
