A good kept secret in north side Tampa A review of Hampton Inn & Suites Tampa - North
We stayed there 2 nights, we went to B.G. T.B.; just got back home.
We rented two rooms.
I was given a big military discount on the rates; the rooms are bigger than the average, they are super clean; the sheets on the bed clean white and soft. I recommend the king size bed that way if your wife snores like mine is no "biggie" because the bed is so big you will not hear her; the bath towels are plenty, bright white and soft. Nice size bathroom.
The place is very quiet, area seems very safe, parking lot is well illuminated, the land scape is the best I have seen yet in a hotel ( including the very expensive ones).
The free breakfast is very good ( from 6 to 10) everything is clean and fresh, and yes they have real cream for your coffee (not cremora in mini-packets wich I hate with a passion) My mom loved the hot tea ( free all day) how ever, do not show up there after 9; the staff will try to bring more breakfast stuff out but usually they run out, or may be on the weekends is hard to for them to keep up because a lot of vacationer families stay there, and everybody wants free breakfast.
The personnel in this hotel (from recepcionist to bed makers) are extremely professional and polite; they do their job very well and are extremely efficient, no complaints there.
We called for a crib on the first night which they deliverded quick.
I was not impressed with the fitness room, may be because I'm a Soldier and we have the best gyms ( and free too! he ha ha).
My only complaint is they do not have enough handicapped parking spots, and the other regular ones are a little smaller than your average, but then again I have a conversion van. If you have a passanger vehicle (sedan) you will be Ok.
I think the price is excellent for the services.
Our experience there was a very pleasant one over all.
