My partner and I came to stay for one night and I can honestly say The Haya is officially one of my favorite hotels to visit in Tampa The hotel is decorated beautifully and it is very clean with friendly staff The hotel is perfect for adults/couples

I didn’t hear any screaming kids which was perfect We went to Flor Fina the restaurant inside the hotel and it has this beautiful ceiling art piece in addition to the lightning and delicious food The restaurant has a smaller menu but trust me what they serve is made with care and lots of flavorTransportation is easy to find because there was the trolley train station near by and it’s free to rideThe hotel is a must visit

Jennifer D

Lovely boutique hotel complemented by excellent staff and service as well as a fantastic restaurant and bar While not overly luxurious, the modern styled room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the shower was fine Our room overlooking the pool was quiet

The location was perfect for exploring Ybor and the surrounding areasThe MVP here is the staff From valet and front desk to waitstaff and housekeeping, the Hotel Haya employees were consistently professional, helpful and personable

william harwell

We recently stayed for two nights while in Tampa The hotel staff is wonderful!!! The hotel is exceptional!!!! The beds are pillow soft and the room is immaculate The coffee shop staff and menu offerings will not disappoint

The pool is resort quality The restaurant is four star! Once in, you’ll find it hard to exit the beautiful marble lined showers The water pressure soothes aching muscles All this for reasonable prices I can’t wait to return Thanks to all the hard working staff!!!!!!

Bill Evans

This hotel is one of the new hotels by Marriott The staff is pleasant, friendly, and they provide a warm welcome to anyone who walks through their door The rooms are modern and furnished with all of the everyday electronic conveniences we now desire

There is not a HDMI cable to stream from your laptop, so remember to add that cable to the list as well as the others you will need The hotel itself is top notch and if you get a chance, check out the stairwell I have never seen the exit stairwells look so polished as in this hotel Good restaurants are steps away and it is close enough to downtown without being downtown Overall I would definitely stay here again

Nan Gorecki

We have stayed at many AC hotels because they are nicely designed, new and clean They all have a proper bar We especially like the rooftop bars at many locations

The Tampa airport AC is in a new shopping area, it’s well lit at night with easy parking This AC has an extra perk, in Christopher the bartenderOur flight got in late the night we stayed at the AC, and we were on Pacific time, wanting a cocktail to wind down… the bar was closing at 11:00 pm, so we thought we’d miss our chance However, there were still customers at the bar when we checked in, because Christopher had stayed way beyond his shift to accommodate his patrons He was extremely gracious in light of his staying late, and made really good margaritasWe’d stay here again, especially to see Christopher Super nice person

Val Thaxter

Location location … everything you need is here … great restaurants, mall, airport Aaron the hotel director is absolutely amazing… so very professional and his entire staff is incredible

from the front desk to the housekeeping to the kitchen…the food was above our expectations… the pool and gym was great and they have guest washer/dryers which was so important staying here for 10 days Never once we had to ask for a thing 1st class hotel I wouldn’t stay anywhere else but here at The AC Marriott when I visit Tampa ❤️

John Klick

Great location where you can actually walk to things like the Children’s museum Checking in was smooth, Valerie was very knowledgeable in giving me local recommendations and even made my 2 children smile It’s nice to come somewhere new and be nicely welcomed

The pool was great, and surprisingly we had it all to ourselves Wish the exercise room was bigger, but gets the job done while traveling Would recommend for people wanting to stay in the downtown area

Rose Hudson

LaQuesha at the front desk was super helpful Gave us the best advice Checking in was just phenomenal because of her amazing spirit

That girl deserves a raise for real! This experience turned very awful when the fire alarm went off at 4:11 am, at first I was super understanding and very concerned as fire trucks and police start showing up We were one of the first people downstairs and there were no staff around or present There was no direction, no one executing any safety precautions Then at 9 am the following morning the fire alarm went off again for 15 seconds again before turning off again, and again at 10 am for 5 seconds No one was taking it seriously When we asked a staff member as we are walking down the stairs what we should do, they had no direction and basically told us to go back to our rooms What if a real fire had gone on, people would have not taken it seriously due to the previous electrical system errors, that is easily a fire hazard and huge code violation on the fire alarm system, never again We come to find out this was reported happening two days prior due to electrical system errors This place needs to be shut down and electrical issues needs to be addressed, it is a huge risk and not worth the time or money to stay here

Rolando Drausal

I felt welcomed as soon as I arrived Javier greeted us cheerfully and had a great sense of humor Upon check in Jessica found us a very nice room overlooking the River ( mom’s bday)

Room was well suited, clean and with all the necessary amenities All other staff members I met were helpful Good location, 1 block away from river walk, a little over 1/2 mile from Convention Center Very competitive price compared to well known chains

Kemi Hardaway

I had a great time staying at this hotel My room was available as soon as I arrived The front desk staff was nice and professional

I was not told that I had to use the hotel key to use the elevators, but a very nice housekeeping staff person told me I needed to use my key My room was spacious and clean with a nice view This location is great as it’s close to everything and you can use the streetcar as well The nearest station for a street car is about two-three blocks away The AC in the room was great! I did have to request for housekeeping by simply calling the front desk The breakfast buffet is the best They had waffles, bacon, potatoes, smoked salmon, fruit, oatmeal just to name a few! I made sure I caught the buffet every morning Their happy hour is just okay They should put cocktails on the menu for happy hour and more selection of foods on the happy hour menu The process for checkout was smooth and fast I can’t wait to visit this hotel again!

Sammie Lord

Room was very large and clean! My room had a kitchenette with a stove, dishes, pots, pans and silverware! As well as a dishwasher which I’ve never seen in a hotel before The staff is very nice and accommodating They offer hypoallergenic sheets, which was nice for me

They also made sure that my sheets were washed with dye free soap cause I’m severely allergic to fragrances and dyes Pool is pretty and location is right in the financial district There are a lot of restaurants nearby and it’s a short drive from Ybor City A few things I wish they could change is that, they don’t offer room service, or dine in room service Also the breakfast was a tad bit disappointing I wish they had a larger selection and options for people with different diets (vegan, gluten-free, etc) they have cheese, cold cuts and smoked salmon which is nice, however, I wish they stored it better especially the smoked salmon because it’s not safe or sanitary for it to sit out from 6:30 – 9:30 am It might make someone sick I also wish the food was higher quality at breakfast However, on the contrary, the restaurant at the hotel is great, and the portions are VERY large So you definitely get to your moneys worth

Tarra Rogers

This hotel checked all my boxes Clean, fast friendly check in, good breakfast selections and great location This hotel was everything I needed it to be

The only thing I would complain about is the $33/day valet parking but that’s something I expect in downtown area of big cities There is another parking option and I think it was about $25/day in a garage nearby Breakfast wasn’t just waffles and cereal They actually had, depending on the day, sausage or bacon, eggs or potatoes, lunch meat, cheeses, fruit, cereals, oatmeal different breads that you can toast as well as orange and apple juice, coffee and tea Lots of seating areas in and outside The rooms were nice, spacious and very clean The bed was a little soft for my liking but comfy enough The pool was clean with a nice vibe on the rooftop Next time I’m in Tampa I’ll be staying here again

Rosie Bryant

For the price the hotel was great The customer service was good Whenever we requested something from the front desk, the staff would call your room to confirm you received what you needed

I loved having a laundry room that you could use a debit/credit card for and not have to worry about getting cash The view is amazing, we had the bay side view The room is spacious and it was convenient to have a full size kitchen and bedroom that is separate and private from the living room area We love the ability to go for a swim at 7am while having a drink at the pool The grills were a plus as wellI gave 4 stars for several reasons but mainly due to the room not being cleaned very well I did address this with the front staff and they sent someone to clean the area we were the most unhappy with The pool towels are limited so I would recommend bringing your own The room could definitely use some updating and we were a little disappointed because the pictures shown on their website looked betterRecommendations for the hotel is to put larger trash cans in the kitchen, add brooms/ mops in the rooms (Especially because we stayed 8 nights), make sure enough toiletries are provided based on the length of stay, purchase more linens, and update the rooms (The tub had peeling paint, furniture outdated and beat up, and cracked flooring)Overall we enjoyed our stay and would return

Crissy Knight

Overall loved everything about this place!! Atmosphere is great Much quieter than expected Being on the 3rd floor we heard no one above or below us

The pull out couch was very comfortable, happily surprised Our only real complaint, and it’s gross Actual dirty dishes were in the cupboard Easy fix we just washed anything and everything before we used it

Jennifer V.

Went for a weekend getaway for sun, a pool and water view This place did all that The grounds are beautiful and well kept

The poolside restaurant had super hardworking and friendly staff; food and drinks were great Pool area was small and could use more chairs as they are filled up really early The hotel itself is outdated but clean overall and had everything we needed We did request toilet paper and towels twice and never received them, but when our TV broke a maintenance worker showed up very quickly Unfortunately the free shuttle bus is very unreliable; upon arrival after waiting an hour and half at the airport we took a cab And upon departure we reserved it for 10am and it was about 40 minutes late, which caused a panic as we had a flight to make Over this is a great place for quick stay for some sun and fun!

Great hotel overall My family stayed for a long weekend and we loved the proximity to the airport and convenience of local restaurants and shopping Not a far drive to the beach either! The hotel is very clean, staff very helpful and friendly, convenient coffee shop in the lobby, very nice pool on the 9th floor with a beautiful view of the bay, and the beds are comfortable too! Our room had a coffee maker and mini fridge as well

We definitely recommend this hotel

A suitcase and a baby

Nice hotel but there must be a plumbing issue in the hotel Toilet barley flushed and tub didn’t drain Kinda disgusting to shower in dirty water

Corner room view was horrible and it sounded like someone was tapping on my window all night Room never got cold despite being on 65 Beds probably would’ve been comfortable if I weren’t hot as all hell Lobby is welcoming but the workers at the front desk clearly are uninterested in working Bar and work spaces make it convenient for after work drinks

Chelsea S

We were on the 11th floor… the hottest floor in the whole building There was no trash can liners or an ice bucket The ice machine on the 11th floor didn’t work

The ac was set at 65 but the temp of the room never went below 78 It’s a bit awkward that the rooms windows face the office building across the way and everyone can see in to your room And paying $14 to park every day kinda sucked However aside from that it’s a nice hotel The bar was decently priced and Stan the bartender makes a great margarita!

Room was perfectly cleaned, the whole hotel was very clean Restaurant lacks atmosphere but the food is very good, the prices line any hotel The rooms are not the typical Holiday Inn room

The are minimalistic style I thought the decor looked old I think they should have replaced the doors when they remodeled, they look like they have been painted 20 times You can tell that the lady renovation was only partial Still a decent place to stay, wonderful bed and the rooms are super quiet from outside noise However, in the hallways you can hear every conversation and Inter room you can hear everything that goes on in the hallways It has a very nice pool They charge guest for parking, that cost the hotel one whole star Noise issue, another star Still recommend it

Shane Van Wasshnova

Remember to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking a place This website will compare countless booking web sites and usually will have rates much cheaper than others! Thank me later! This place is one of the best in this area

I have been coming here for a very long time If you stay for a few nights you won’t be let downThe room was very clean, and the beds were comfortable The water pressure leaves something to be desired, but outside of that evening was great I never did see the hotel restaurant open and checked at all times of day There is a cooler in the lobby with drinks for purchase and some snacks as well Ricardo is the nicest staff person there He was always kind and helpful I’d stay here again if I were in the area

If you’re coming from out of town, be aware that this hotel is not in the best area The inside itself was nice and the hotel staff was great The experience was strange however

This was the first hotel I’ve been to where you need your room key to use the elevator and you’re only able to go to your room floor On one hand it ensure your safety, but on the other, you have to wonder why they do that There are some homeless people in the area, so that may be why When my husband and I were sitting at the restaurant, a homeless guy walked in, put his bags at the table beside us and went to use the restroom We are from a small town in Southern Ontario and aren’t used to seeing that (even amongst all the places we’ve traveled to) We quickly finished eating and left We went for a walk to the convenience store across the road and there were sketching characters around, so just be mindful of that if you’re walking around outside the hotel The room was average, but clean We found it pricey for what it was, but I think all of Tampa is expensive The restaurant was ok, but the service was terrible We had a Philly steak sandwich for dinner which was good, but we had to ask for things like ketchup, etc as it was never offered They also didn’t take a drink order and then give us time to look at the menu They dropped off the menu and came right back and said do you know what you want to order It was strange We went back for breakfast as it was convenient Again, the service was not good I ordered waffles and they were the worst waffles I’ve ever had and the coffee wad terrible I would go somewhere else! All in all, our stay wasn’t terrible, but given the area, I’d likely find somewhere else to stay if I ever went back to Tampa

Booked about 15 rooms here for an event downtown and was a bit nervous given the mixed reviews; however, everything was great The rooms are a bit older but mine was very clean and no one had any complaints Am diamond … executive lounge was nice looking and had some nice snacks, very good coffee, and good soft drinks

Wish it opened at 6 instead of 7 am but that was fine Complimentary breakfast for diamond members was quite nice Valet was quick Not sure why some have given less than good reviews Very good location Thank you for doing a nice job with my small group

Cristyle Wood Egitto

100% recommend this hotel Got upgraded to executive upon check in which was a pleasant surprise Great city views from the room

Bed was super comfy Nice toiletries Staff was all really friendly Valet kinda pricey but we self-parked and it’s downtown so can’t really do much there Great location So close to the waterfront, arena, Armeture, etc Has a Starbucks in the lobby and a nice restaurant/bar Would absolutely stay here again

Chemere Mathis

We traveled to Tampa to visit family & this was the perfect stay! The location was close to great restaurant & bars Valet was very convenient & professional The front desk receptionists were friendly & very helpful

Special S/O to Hashim that works the front desk ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ He ensured our stay was enjoyable from checking in & during the remainder of our stay It was pleasure to work with him!!The only concern I have is the rate of our room that was increased by $300 for one night before we checked out when we were told a different price by the front desk I’m hoping management or corporate will help to resolve this manner efficiently as I enjoy being a Hilton memberUpdate: Lucas reached out to resolve my concern & honor the amount that was given by the front desk Thank you all!

Karina Colmenares

What an excellent stay! The room was great and the customer service was awesome The most memorable part was Jacob from the downstairs restaurant Taste He is one of the best bartender’s I’ve ever met in my life

You can tell he is passionate on what he does and he made my birthday weekend awesome!! Not only that, but that restaurant has the best food ever I went out to eat a few times in Tampa, but my family and I still found our way back to that restaurant because it was definitely 5 star material I will be coming back soon!!

Jerri Allaster

Incredibly expensive for the value I encourage you to book on line and DO NOT wait until the last minute, especially to book on a weekend Do not book at the desk as you will not receive the available online discounts

Although it is a suite, not worth $400+ a night The rooms need some work to get up to date You are provided 2 real glasses, 1 in our room was a quarter full of water and were apparently hand washed or just rinsed instead of cleaned in the dishwasher, unacceptable The room could use a deep cleaning The pool chairs are dated and the tables need to be cleaned periodically The upside, a free happy hour with limited selection from 5pm – 6:30 and breakfast daily, that offers a decent selection You have been warned ⚠️

I really enjoyed my stay at Fairfield Inn Everything from the time I entered the building it was all great All of it was well worth me booking my stay with them

Big room and a big bed clean and fresh and bright Bathroom was way bigger than I thought it would be So places give you a great room But the bathroom are a after thought Hugh walk in shower which I love I will definitely staying with you guys my next visit anywhere

Jordan Dyce

If you’re a Marriott Bonvoy member STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOTEL!!! Checked into this hotel today and requested my enhanced upgrade based on platinum bonvoy status Shawn the front desk attendant rudely stated that they don’t upgrade I told him that is not Marriott policy and my status is not based on the price of the room

He again refused saying his manager told him that was the policy at this hotel I called Marriott Bonvoy customer service and had a supervisor call the hotel and explain to them that they were violating Marriott policy They still refused saying that the General Manager created this policy and he is out of town and they won’t go against him Never been treated like this at any Marriott property I filed a complaint with Marriott and advise all elite members to stay away from these rude arrogant people There are many other Marriott properties in Tampa that won’t treat loyal customers like this

Sherree Ward

We love this hotel The people are very nice and helpful with what you need Beds are so comfortable and it’s great for my back, plus we slept great

Rooms are nice and clean Everywhere is quiet except for the lobby They do have a pool there not sure if it’s open we didn’t go swimming while there Hope to go back there if we ever get a chance too

Hotel staff is A+ and I saw them giving the same great service to everyone Room was large and comfortable The saline pool is great and super clean

The garage parking is pricey but the staff was able to reduce it for me given the amount of time I stayed Only negative was a faint sewerage smell at times but I don’t know if it was the hotel or something from outside Would highly recommend and would definitely stay again

Check-in went smoothly, nothing else did I arrived in my room, standard Aloft room with a nice view but I noticed that the entire control panel for the safe was hanging by a thread, dangling I needed to lock up a valuable, get ready for a dinner appointment and leave

I called the desk and asked to be moved or to get the safe fixed I was told they’d call me back 30 minutes later I called to see if they could move me, that I had an appointment and needed to leave soon I was told that they were sold out and all the managers were in a meeting They’d call me back 10 minutes later a maintenance worker knocked on my door and had a plunger He thought they said sink, not safe He walked away I called the desk and they said they’d fix it later I couldn’t take my valuables with me, so later wouldn’t work I needed to get changed and freshen up but I didn’t want to be in the middle of that and partially unpacked if they were going to move me I finally got a manger on the line who said she’d move me I asked if they could bring me the key The answer was no, I have to come down and get it PS I’m a gold rewards member, whatever The new room was a handicap room and faced a concrete wall Didn’t care, the safe worked I asked for a 1:30 pm check out and the front desk said fine The next morning I go to use their liquid shower gel, that is bolted to the wall and it’s empty I showered with shampoo I reconfirmed in the morning my 1:30 check out and the night clerk failed to note that I would’ve been charged 1/2 day had I not rechecked The overall attitude is poor and the staff isn’t trained with Marriott standards, at all I’ll be staying at any other property downtown Another PS, I’ve stayed here numerous times but it’s gone too far down hill for me to go back

Make sure to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking any hotel This web site will compare thousands of hotel sites and typically will have rooms much cheaper compared to others! Thank me later on! This resort is one of my favorites in the area

I’ve been staying here for a long time If you decide to stay here you definitely won’t be disappointedWe stayed here for one night while in Tampa and had a nice experience The staff was very helpful and nice The room was clean and simple with plenty of room for the three of us that stayed there We also had a nice partial view of the river that was enjoyable The parking was a bit expensive and valet was the only option, but I would venture to guess that parking anywhere near the hotel would have been just as expensive

I stayed three nights and felt very comfortable during my stay I feel like this is a great hotel The staff here was very helpful and friendly

The front desk was extremely accommodating and responsive to any request I ate at the restaurant for breakfast, had the yogurt parfait and waffles and it was great Went again for dinner another night and we got Greek salad and fish sandwich and it was good too The hotel grounds are well kept and it is easy to get to from the highway I swam in the pool and it was very nice So overall it is great!

Michael Kroeger

Very nice upscale venue Expansive grounds for a nice walk with an above average restaurant on the grounds The road in and out is not typical and a bit confusing on day one, but the more travelled the easier to negotiate

Staff were friendly, accommodating and helpful Interior was clean and neat as were the rooms Room was spacious and bed firm and comfortable Room had ample seating (sofa +3 chairs) to accommodate visiting guests Our traveling companions were not so lucky with only one chair A call to the front desk resulted in another chair delivered to the room 10 minutes later

Staying here was a wonderful experience! I had my wedding here and everyone was super nice and accomplished every step of the way It was a truly pleasurable experience We booked several of the casitas for the wedding weekend and it was perfect! The rooms were clean and in great condition

The beds were so comfortable The main hotel is beautiful! We ate at the hotel for breakfast and it was impressive, Totally worth checking out!
