Glorified Airport Hotel

Member Rating 2 out of 5 by USF44 on August 11, 2010

This hotel is located on the side of a highway next to the airport. Sure it is on the bay but many hotels can claim that. Without a car you are stranded and even then you are 15 minutes from anything besides the mall. No free wifi....pools are small, no better than a single family home backyard. Priceline and hotwire rate is regularly $45. Restaraunts are good but not spectacular as the prices suggest. Marriott waterside is newer & in a much better location (downtown right on water) and is walking distance to restaraunts, nightlife, and museums. If you are looking to stay close to the airport there is a brand new Weston across the highway from the hyatt.
there is also consistently a sewage smell in the lobby. As for the other review, the best hotel in the Tampa Bay area is without a doubt the Vinoy. Located at the Marina in St. Pete, walking distance to everything, and history and charm (plus the lobby doesnt smell like somebody used the bathroom in it)
