A week with my room and 3 other people in it A review of Howard Johnson Plaza Tampa-Downtown

I had the chance to spend a week in the hotel the spring before last. My club (rowing) used to travel down to FLA to row along the canal that borders (beautifully) the hotel and better part of downtown Tampa. The room was comfortable ...large TV, comfortable climate control, comfy beds (despite sharing it with another male rower) and well kept (maid service) bathrooms. On the subject of maids- they didnt steal from us. We probably gave ample oppertunity, but never lost anything. Maybe just luck...

We ate at the hotel restaurants (and catering) every day. I highly reccomend the Calzone from "Perkys Pizza" and the pasta from Andre, the pasta cook in "The Restaurant". Things mightve changed though...

The workout room facility was very small, cramped, and humid...not comfortable at all. Laundry facilities were all but non existant (2 sets washer and dryer at max) But the elevators are quite safe! (we used them at least 10x a day) The staff and management were very curtious, and I never felt particularly threatened when in the lobby late at night. Thats all!
