DoubleTree by Hilton Tampa Rocky P

Tampa, Tampa and Clearwater/St Pete

Virgin rating

The hotel

Just a 10 minute drive from Tampa International Airport, this hotel is a great place to stop on your journey into the gulf coast, before you head off to one of many famous beaches. Connected by the causeway, there’s easy access to Clearwater, so you can have your feet in that soft white sand in no time. You don’t need to leave the hotel to get views of the water though, watch the bayside sunsets from your room, or whilst dining at the waterfront grill, sipping on your favourite cocktail.

I give this hotel 10/10! Rooms are decorated tastefully and the views on the water view side are spectacular!

Jet Ski service was available right outside the hotel on the water and the Bluefin Restaurant’s outside bar was accessible to a beautiful pool area. Last but not least, the service was impeccable and Rubin went above and beyond to ensure we had a very comfortable stay! My husband and I will definitely be back very soon for our family vacation to Tampa !! Read less

The hotel staff is fine. BUT the few times that I’ve stayed here the fire alarm has gone off about half of those times. It’s so annoying. They enviously have a sensor issue that needs to be fixed. Plus this last time the fire exit doors were blocked by the housekeeping carts and the workers moved with no sense of urgency which makes me think this… Read more
The hotel staff is fine. BUT the few times that I’ve stayed here the fire alarm has gone off about half of those times. It’s so annoying. They enviously have a sensor issue that needs to be fixed. Plus this last time the fire exit doors were blocked by the housekeeping carts and the workers moved with no sense of urgency which makes me think this happens so often that they don’t worry about it. Totally unacceptable that this keeps happening. On a good note. When I checked in Alyssa and Ernest were wonderful at checkin. Read less

Great customer service from EVERY employee. Rubin at the front desk went the extra mile to help. The van driver who took me to the airport was great. Really can’t say enough about how great the staff is no matter what time of day or night. The location on the water is perfect, nice views. Really enjoyed the stay there.

When we arrived, our patio room was taken. The new room wasn’t ready. They offered complimentary dinner that took 90 minutes. The fire pit was broken. We requested rooms get cleaned and towels every day. Out of the 5 days, it only got cleaned once. On day 4. The manager Sally screamed at my sister and was rude. We had to bring our own dishes… Read more
When we arrived, our patio room was taken. The new room wasn’t ready. They offered complimentary dinner that took 90 minutes. The fire pit was broken. We requested rooms get cleaned and towels every day. Out of the 5 days, it only got cleaned once. On day 4. The manager Sally screamed at my sister and was rude. We had to bring our own dishes down and go to front desk every day to ask for towels. The manager lied on us when putting notes in their computer calling us irate guests and accusing us of just wanting compensation. Alyssa and Debra, Valerie and Tori were amazing and so sorry for our treatment but couldn’t help, no authority. They felt so bad for us. I would not recommend this hotel for one reason. Very poor management. Sally is the rudest manager I have ever met and I’ve stayed in hundreds of hotels for years. Employees even felt like she was out of line. Don’t stay here until Sally is replaced. Read less

Check in was flawless! The pool and view are amazing! Rubin was the sweetest staff member I’ve ever worked with at a Hilton! I am here for business and am sad that I can’t spend all my time at the hotel. The place is great! I cannot get over the views!
