Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Morris13069 A very enjoyable stay in Tampa at the Crowne Plaza
We called from the airport for a shuttle and were picked up within 10-12 minutes. Bruce the driver was very professional and engaging. Jeffrey at the front desk was also friendly, professional and courteous. They let us check in early (before 3:00 PM) which was very much appreciated. The room was spacious and comfortable, the bathroom was of a good size and we were very pleased. On top of that, they gave us free drink tickets to use at the bar - what a way to unwind from a long day of traveling!
When we asked at the front desk for directions to Westshore Plaza, SURPRISINGLY, they offered to drive us there! Bruce drove us and to the Plaza we called the hotel when we were done and he picked us up and brought us back. HOW CONVENIENT IS THAT! The next day, Bruce took us to the airport at the prearranged time. Bottom line - this was a very enjoyable stay and we will stay there again when we come back in April 2014. I highly recommend this hotel.

the fitness room was small and cramped.
The room could have been much cleaner.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cyndi21 Paper thin walls
Stayed on a Tuesday evening. This Crowne Plaza is on a very busy street next to crossroads of interstates. Noisy from inside room.
Older hotel, purchased by Crowne Plaza and then added a few
newer decorations. Bathrooms are still old. No refrigerator, just a dusty hole in the cabinet. No clock radio on bedside.
The walls were so thin, we could hear normal conversation and TV noise until 2:00 in the morning. We could hear our neighbors snoring, sitting on bed and taking off shoes, and belching.
Not a good stay!!

My family of 4 stayed in a 1 bedroom suite and loved it. The large sectional couch was great for my kids to hang out on and then convert into a great bed at night. My wife fell in love with the TempleSpa bath products and we have already purchased some online. Great value, great staff. Only suggestion was that we would have appreciated a hot tub since it was a cool couple days when we stayed.

Had a couple of issues during our stay, but it was addressed immediately by the staff and taken care of. I definitely would recommend this property. Its serves its purpose very well. Went to Tampa to attend a Buccs game and its in a very convenient location close to both the airport and Raymond James Stadium. The staff recognized us as Platinum IHG members and provided us a room upgrade without request.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LondonPeter1 Fantastic Hotel - Excellent Stay
Our stay got off to a good start with a warm friendly welcome fro Lena on the front desk who provided lots of information/advice throughout our stay. Upgraded to a suite (recognition of Platinum Status in the hotel chain's loyalty programme).
The suite was spacious and well furnished. I particularly appreciated the double size shower. On criticism of the room - it lacked a room safe - I thought that this was a standard feature in rooms nowadays.
The room was right by the swimming pool - a fantastic size and warm! - a great facility in a secluded courtyard. At times it seemed that I almost had exclusive use of it!
Had breakfast every day - a good spread with excellent friendly service. Made use of the bar - friendly staff and good atmosphere.
Having been out one day, we returned to the hotel to find the suite had not been serviced - housekeeping had left a letter stating that the room could not be serviced as we had left the "privacy sign" on the room door. Whilst we had displayed the privacy sign on the door, it had been removed before 12.00 noon before we left the hotel for the day and before housekeeping had left their letter! I have to say that the Hotel dealt with this complaint in an exemplary manner - the room was serviced immediately and we were offered complimentary drinks in the bar for the inconvenience. Top marks to Rose of Housekeeping for her efforts in putting matters right and her focus on customer service.
Throughout our stay we experienced excellent service from all the staff - we would certainly stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rings I'm not as bright as my window
This property was a great surprise with a couple of disappointments. Arrival was early evening and the hotel looked quite attractive. I made my way to the minimalist desk and waited, behind 3 others, to check in while my wife waited for a bellman to help with the bags. She was still waiting 5 minutes later when I had the key. I took the luggage cart, wheeled it to the car, placed all of the bags on it, wheeled it back in and only then did the bellman INSIST upon taking us up to the room. He showed us the room, made a couple of recommendations and then took off. Not quite what I was expecting service wise.
The room was on the 11th floor Everything was spotlessly clean and attractive. The view over the bay was outstanding. Lighting and powere sockets were satisfactory. The bed itself was quite comfortable though I prefer something a little less firm. Pillows were what I describe as cocktail size. I am old school in that I prefer a full sized pillow and a soft down one especially. These were much to firm for me. The bathroom facilities were more than pleasing and the shower had excellent pressure.
The floor to ceiling window had a sunscreen on it that did a great job. However at night it was nowhere sufficient to block out the lights. It meant that I had a very poor nights sleep. This was mentioned at check out and I was then informed that hidden away on the other side of the window was a cord for a blackout shade. Id looked and not noticed this so be forewarned.
Overall I would happily stay here again on a future visit to Tampa.

My stay at this Crown Plaza was exceptional. The staff was attentive and helpful in every way. My Platinum Status was recognized and my room up-graded without my request. The room was clean & quiet & the bed comfortable. The location was less than a mile from where I had to return my rental car prior to going to the airport. This was the perfect location ito the airport. I will definitely stay here my next trip to Tampa.

good service, price, food, friendly staff, clean, comfortable room. There was some banging in the wall end of hall the entire stay and we notified staff on check out to investigate. Sounded like a pipe or vent needed to be addressed. Even with this it did not diminish our stay or disturb our sleep. A very fair price for what you get.

I really enjoyed my long stay at this property. Everyone is treated excellent here. The front desk staff and bar staff remember you by name and do their best to make you feel like the only guest in the hotel. If I hadn't moved to the area I'd always stay here. Quick note, the bar staff, Sam and Bryn are great! If you have a chance go and see them and they will take gooooood care of you..

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by abdine68 Room Cleanliness
I made a reservations for a month and was really excited about staying there since my last experience was great. This time, your cleaning folks were masters of the short cuts. from leaving me me less towels to not completely making my bed. I was already not happy about the bathroom not being clean when I arrived and they had to send someone to clean. I was staying in a Cabana Suite and the service was very poor! I wonder how bad would it have been if I stayed in a regular room?

I was very impressed with this hotel. The bed and pillows were wonderful, and the room was really nice. I liked the bar and latin music that was played live, it was a wonderful place to stay, I will come back when I have more time.

I am a Platinum Member of the IHG Rewards Club, (don't know why that doesn't show up on my reviews). I have traveled extensively for about a decade. I received the best customer service I've ever seen during this stay. The shuttle drivers, front desk, restaurant staff, and housekeeping staff all went out of their way to make me feel special, and to make sure I got to where I needed to be on time. Thanks Crowne Plaza for a perfect stay. I'll be sure to return the next time I'm in the area.

The hotel is clean and comfortable, close to the highway, mall and restuarants, and a great value! The staff are warm and welcoming and will go the extra mile to ensure you have everything you need, or help you out in any way possible, Mojiotos has the best happy hour and bar tender in Tampa! Cheers Craig! The food is very good also. I would recomend this hotel to all travelers. You will not be disappointed.

We are celebrating our 3Oth wedding anniversary. Wow! Our choice of the crown plaza Tampa Bay was an excellent idea. We were looking forward to time away for just the two of us. We lived in the Tampa area about 22 years ago and were very much surprised at all of the changes that have taken place. We really enjoyed our stay the staff were so friendly and professional. The suite we were given was comfortable and roomy. We will certainly be back.

Stayed here for two weeks for business. From the moment I checked in I felt welcomed. Jorge the manager at the front desk went above and beyond every day I was there as did Martin at Mezzo and Chris at the desk as well as Craig at Mojitos. . Clean place gorgeous ambiance. Only improvment would be fitness center.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MichelleL Awesome!!
The staff was excellent. Very accommodating and helpful. So much so, that we arrived a lot earlier than expected into Tampa, yet the staff allowed a very early check in at no charge ! The breakfast buffet is actually VERY good! I was surprised because breakfast buffets aren't typically good, but they changed up the options daily and even had a few items that you could order from the kitchen at no charge (such as pancakes, eggs, and omelets) . For nightlife, the Mojito lounge is also pretty cool, with a happy hour from 5-8pm. If you do stay at this hotel and need peaceful sleep, ask to be placed in a room away from the lounge. Our room was right above the lounge on the third floor and we could hear the lounge music clearly. We didn't mind because we were on vacation and usually came in pretty late into our room anyway, but just warning those who need their sleep.

From the time of booking this overnight stay to meet friends flying in to TPA everything about this hotel impressed.
Great Reservation service, a great room and wall to wall courtesy.
We were 100% pleased with the service and concern for our comfort.
We will not stay anywhere else in Tampa, FL.
Thank you Crowne Plaza - you well earn your stars.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by whitesoxfan1 Bed was ok and great service.
The service was great, the food was great but when I checked in I requested a room with a refrigerator. I checked in early too but I was told by the front desk clerk that there wasn't any more rooms left with refrigerators. I think every room should have a refrigerator. That is my only complaint.
