      Eh

      Overall the hotel was nice. The on site parking being $21.70 a night was ridiculous and the mattress in the room was by far the hardest I’ve ever barely been able to sleep on. Took my new wife to stay for a quick honeymoon and was disappointed in the uncomfortable bed.

    • 4.0.Fair

      Not worth the price.

      Very old building had lots of nostalgia. Art deco and style was gorgeous. However, the rooms were dates and the plumbing sounded like it was going to burst when taking a shower. It honestly didn't bother us but there's also people smoking weed like everywhere. I wouldn't bring my kids here but it was a OK getaway for the wife and i.

      Deserted Old Hotel with Scratchy Sheets

      I stayed because of the reasonable price for still being in downtown Tampa (though it was a few blocks north of where I wanted to be) and because of the historic significance of the hotel. It seemed somewhat run down, deserted (almost to the point of being creepy), and most importantly, the bed sheets were scratchy and not soft. The staff was friendly enough, which was nice, but I don't think I'd stay here again unless renovations took place.

      Loved the look and feel of this hotel. Convenient location with easy adjacent parking. I would definitely recommend!

      My go to place in Tampa.

      I've stayed here many time over the last 10 years for both business and pleasure. Staff is always friendly (Nick - great job). It is a hundred year old building at a very reasonable price. No its not the Ritz, but I didn't pay for the Ritz. Unfortunately, the bar hasn't open back up yet from the pandemic. It is throw back in time and one of my favorite things about hotel. Hope to be back for Game 5 next week. Go Hab!!!
