Rated 2 out of 5 by Michael Rooms need work
I recently stayed at the Sheraton Riverwalk for a convention and was very disappointed in the rooms and overall facility. The carpet was absolutely filthy and the beds were simply uncomfortable. I stayed at this property specifically because it was a Starwood property but I regret that decision and would not stay here again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by actampa Great Staff - Horrible policies
I stayed at the hotel over this past weekend and the experience was less than satisfactory. Upon checking in for a reservation made nearly 2mos in advance, I was told the system had crashed and it would be a while before anyone could get into a room. This was understandable, since there was a huge convention taking place a couple of blocks away,and there were probably hundreds of people trying to check in at the same time. I arrived for check in at 6pm and did not get into a room until 8:20pm. During the wait, all guests were given a voucher for 2 drinks and an appetizer at the hotel bar/restaurant. The problem: they ony had 1 Bartender on staff, and the poor guy had to play the roles of Host and Server at the same time! He handled it very professionally, but a lot of less understanding guests were very annoyed and vocal about it. They were personally escorted to thedir rooms before me.
I have to say, the most pressing issue I had with the hotel was that I was not notified before or after making my PREPAID, NONREFUNDABLE reservation that the only parking offered for the hotel is Valet - for which a guest pays $18 per night! Because my friend brought a car as well, I paid nearly $78 for a 2 night stay. This is absolutely something that should be disclosed before a guest decides to book with the hotel. For some, this unexpected fee can make a huge impact. The room was satisfactory, especially for the price. They could improve greatly by making more electrical outlets available and by adding a fan to the bathroom.
Otherwise, the staff was actually wonderful and very attentive. They did their best to resolve the issues that they could and handled the difficult guests very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jbrook2 Everyone gets a 10 from me and my family
We had wonderful service from the front desk, from all the staff at the Ashley, the Valet/Shuttle staff, and all the housekeeping staff. We had a family member at TGH, and everyone at the Sheraton took a personal interest in our care and comfort. We would definitely stay at the Sheraton again when we visit Tampa.

I've stayed at this hotel many, many times and I cannot express the value of the staff there. They are all so wonderful, so congenial, so kind. I've never stayed at a hotel where the employees are so great! Kudos to all of you! And the valet guys are so very efficient and always remember my name!!!

We came from Maine for the Frozen Four and our stay at the Hotel was great. The staff was wonderful and went out of their way to help us with any questions we had. The valet made a special effort to get us a ride to Tropicana Field for a ball game. This hotel is a great place to stay in Tampa.

Front desk staff was very courteous and welcoming upon check in/out. Room was not cleaned one day and I made the hotel staff aware. Also my room access card did not work for club access. Pool was too cold for swimming so I'll be staying in another hotel with indoor pool my next trip to Tampa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Canadax2 Great location
Location on the river walk. We faced the river and watched the boats. Quiet and convenient. In downtown but no traffic on the weekend. Stayed on Club floor but always seemed to miss times for special Club amenities. Enjoyed our stay. Valet attendants always friendly and quick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tammy13 Highly recommend
I would recommend staying at this Sheraton. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Shuttle service was awesome. The green program rewards you for not having room cleaned each day . We keep our room clean and in order so the 5.00 voulcher was a bonus towards a meal at the hotel .

Rated 2 out of 5 by LAguy57 Good location, dated facilities
This hotel is located in a great spot, but rooms need updating. Furniture is old and beat-up, First room I had I had to change due to part of safety latch missing on door. Cleanliness is very good, no complaints there and common areas are nice.

The suite was wonderful. We liked the view of the activity on the river. It was very relaxing and a great location. The staff in the club lounge was wonderful, friendly, and helpful. One of the nicest hotels I have stayed at in a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KB228 How is this place so freaking great?
I was so pleasantly surprised by this fantastic property. Everyone who works here is helpful and friendly from the valets to the front desk staff to the bartender and waitstaff. I was very pleased with my stay at this property.
The Sheraton Club was a wonderful place to have breakfast and always had a fridge stocked with water, juice, and soda.
I ate multiple meals at the restaurant within the hotel. The service was excellent and the food was very good. The restaurant has a good selection of wine and the bartender provided great recommendations.
The fitness center was great. I am super into their treadmills that gave me the option of simulating runs through Germany and California. I'm into anything that can distract me from how I'm breathing on a treadmill so this was a plus.
I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. This level of awesome is what I expect from spg and I will definitely return to this hotel if I am in the area again.
The valet staff should be specifically complimented on their good nature, friendly service, and impeccable memories.

Great location with a great staff, problem was hotel needs a bit of face lift. Thought staff was MORE than friendly which made the stay great. Could use a few later hours at the bar! Food was good and overall the stay was GOOD!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BranBran Better by the Night - Literally
SPG has a program called better by the night in which you get extra points, but this hotel has gone beyond that and has literally become better by the night. I wrote a review before about the hotel being a little antique, but the staff and the room upgrades I've received are amazing! Oh, and how can I forget the staff! Lawrence who works over night is effecient, understanding and just excellent, and Dantay in the Concierge Lounge is friendly and helpful as well.
I also discovered the hotel convenient store! This little nook has EVERYTHING! Its like a mini wal-mart! Overall, the Sheraton Riverwalk is becoming my favorite SPG property in Tampa!

Service & location were excellent. However, wifi wasn't working & then phones went down. The room carpet needs deep clean or complete upgrade, otherwise clean room.

Rated 2 out of 5 by pmf2013 Needs huge improvements
Old hotel, needs HUGE IMPROVEMENTS. Centrally located. Staff very nice, except one front desk woman. Terrible plumbing. furniture in the rooms extremely old, need replacement. Very dissapointed. Housekeeping staff extremely attentive, specially Tracy, Plumber came to fix shower but left it dirty. It really did not work properly. One of the tv did not work at all. Every time we need to get into our two rooms our keys needed to be reprogrammed forcing us to go back to front desk to have them reissued, front desk young woman extremely argumentative and full of excuses about it, this happened for three days, several times each day. VERY UNHAPPY!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by KALC Pretty Nice Place
The room was quiet but a bit outdated. Carpets are stained, headboard of bed falling apart and wall looks like it burst at the bottom and was quickly plastered back together with no thought towards appearance. Front desk staff was AMAZING, Tracey was more than helpful! Location is great for those that want city experience. No cost airport shuttlewould be nice though. Cleaning staff did a good job but needs to remember that if change is left on the table with other guest items it doesnt mean it is yours for the taking~! i'll tip on checkout, that is, unless you decided to help yourself after the first night! Overall a pretty nice stay. Thanks~!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tampa8 Mixed Bag
Strengths: mattress, river view, shower head, hot water, pleasant staff, laundry room, breakfast.
1. No fresh sheets. Even when something had clearly spilled on the pillowcase and sheet, no one changed them the entire visit - 10 days.
2. No fresh towels.
3. No one cleaned the tub the entire visit.
4. No one cleaned the floors in the bathroom, or the carpet in the main living area. It even looked like there was a urine stain on the floor from the last guest. No one cleaned it.
1. Thin walls. You could hear all the traffic coming in and out of the elevator. Also people walking and talking up and down the halls.
