Great modern hotel with a great staff!

Overall we enjoyed our stay. The only negative thing is I found the size of the room a bit small but we overlooked that. I did however have an issue with never having our room cleaned, and having to ask for towels and toilet paper twice. The staff was great, the location was convenient and I really enjoyed the pool area.

Great property

Greetings every time you enter. Knowledgeable and very nice. I enjoyed my stay

Beautiful view of the bay and the river walk. Staff was friendly and helpful. Especially Ron the bartender!

Great location. Most is the staff was nice but a few of them were terrible.

The hotel was clean and beautifully decorated. This resulted in a nice ambiance.

This was the most unpleasant experience in a hotel for me. The only good experience in the Aloft Tampa were the valet staff. Bed is very uncomfortable, air conditioning in the room was not working. VERY SMALL SPACE. I have to get mad for them to help me with it. Complementary coffee was awful, only 1 bottle of water, staff at the front desk not friendly. I can be continuing, but I have no time to list all the downside of this MEDIOCRE hotel. I was in a Marriot at Hutchinson Island two weeks ago and there is nothing compare don’t even close, If anyone is reading this review thinks twice before reserve this hotel because with the price you are paying for this you can have better option next door in the Sheraton.

I was not a fan of the fact that you could not get room service or have anything ordered from the bar brought up to the room.

2 queen bed river view was not the same room pictured on website. The window in was about a 1/4 of the size advertises and strangely placed all the way to one side of the wall. We paid extra for a river view and the window was so small and awkwardly placed that the only way to see the river was to be standing right in front of the window. i went down to discuss with the front desk and showed them what was pictured on their website as the queen riverview room and I was told that the room pictured was the suite. I asked if we could be switched to a room with a bigger window and they said no. They did not offer anything not even an apology for clearly false advertising. I went back to my room to tell my friend that we apparently weren't given the wrong room. Once in the room i noticed a moldy smell and the ac did not seem to be working properly. Called down advised the girl at desk of issues and she immediately said "well you will be getting the same room juat on a dloor above or below" as if i made up issues to try and get a room with a bigger window or something. I said that is fine. New keys were sent up and no issues with the new room other than the same crappy small window. Valet is required and costs $24 / day, definately over priced for area. On the positive note the bartender was nice and attentive. The food was just ok.

Mediocre..The gentleman who checked us in and out was nice, but the girl who we asked for another 30 minutes to checkout was Miss frowny - just shook her head - not even a verbal response. Rooms Spartan contemporary style. Not our thing. Noisy. Can hear all going on in rooms above. Worked in a pinch but don't plan on staying here, again.

The hotel was nice. The first room they had me in smelled strongly of bleach so they moved me with no hesitation. Great valet service and in walking distance from most bars and restaurants.

This is a little hotel right next to the Riverwalk. The heated pool and fire pit, right outside the bar have a balcony overlooking the Riverwalk. It is the most picturesque stroll in the city. It was walking distance to Amalie Arena the art museum and lots of downtown attractions. The room was clean and the bathroom modern and cool. Free WIFI worked well. Breakfast was limited, but quick and inexpensive. Coffee free and good. Valet parking only $20/day.
