Hilton Tampa Downtown

Tampa, Tampa and Clearwater/St Pete

Virgin rating

The hotel

Just two blocks from Tampa Riverwalk and half a mile from Amalie Arena, this is a great location to access the best that Tampa has to offer, whether it be a stroll by the water or cheering on Tampa Bay Lightning as you take in a live match. The rooftop pool will be a welcome relief when you return from any activity in the Florida sunshine, with scenic views of the area available whilst you sip on an ice cold drink. It’s worth upgrading to an Executive Room so you can enjoy complimentary breakfast and snacks in the lounge, especially if you need to catch up emails during your trip.

The room were not as great as expected and wallpaper was in bad shape in the bathroom. The front desk service was spectacular and made us feel very welcome. The bed only had two pillows when we arrived and there was no coffee set up in our room. Very noisy too.

The hotel staff were very attentive. The hostess for restaurant 211 in breakfast was so great the 2 days we were there. Our waitresses were Sylvia and Brenda (I might have gotten the name wrong, but she is an African American woman). The room was clean and the breakfast was good.

During this business trip the staff had my upgraded room ready and valet provided ease with travel to the room. Once I arrived, the upgraded room was impeccably clean and no noise from other rooms or events was detected. Also, being centrally located in downtown provided ample access to restaurants, sporting venues etc.

The hotel charges 21% gratuity AND an "in room dining" delivery fee. First of all, the gratuity charge is outrageous and a non-English speaking person drops off your brown bag of food.

The hotel charges 21% gratuity AND an "in room dining" delivery fee. First of all, the gratuity charge is outrageous and a non-English speaking person drops off your brown bag of food. It is a DELIVERY service just like Door Dash and Uber Eats. WAY over priced. The reason the non-English speaking person is an issue is because Hilton ONLY has an online ordering system. When you place your order, it prints out in the contracted restaurant's kitchen. If you order a beverage, that comes from the bar area and the delivery person doesn't connect the two orders. When you try to question the delivery person, they have no idea what you are requesting. There is no way to actually speaking to the contracted restaurant if you have a question regarding their vague menu item descriptions. I was there for three days and had issues everytime I ordered food. Leaving the hotel wasn't an option and I kept hoping it would get better. Secondly, they would throw your condimeters on top of your food. YECK. Talk about unsanitary and nasty during a COVID time period. Read less
