The staff are professional and courteous.
The Rooms are clean and well maintained.
The location is central to Tampa area attractions and minutes from the airport.
The two points that keep this
hotel from gaining above average ratings across the board are;
1. Parking. This is beyond the control of staff, but parking is scarce and the overflow in the adjacent parking garage can be a challenge.
2. The Restaurant. A complimentary continental breakfast is offered at most fine hotels. This hotel charges upward of $11.00. The menu items are exactly the same as those provided to paying guests at nearby establishments. The individual items offered, in lieu of the breakfast buffet, are priced on a level plane with the airport.
Note: Coffee and a yogurt should not push the $10.00 mark.
This is something that could be, and should be, addressed if Holiday Inn has a genuine desire to show an appreciation for their customer.
With that said, and all things considered, I would certainly stay here again, and I would recommend this hotel to others. [Less]
