Rated 3 out of 5 by JJ2015 Shower Issues
While most aspects of our stay were enjoyable, and there was a nice view from our hotel balcony overlooking the pool, the shower had a few issues. The water wouldn't stay directed to the showerhead, and the water was lukewarm, even on it's hottest setting. It seems like they need to upgrade the water systems. I heard other guests complain about the water temperature as well. Other aspects were nice enough.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ppulaski not as expected
Furniture needs updating, looked to be well worn. Plain basic room at $$$ prices. Drain in tub did not work well. Stood in water while showering. No fan in bathroom. Room right opposite elevator so there was loud talking and banging doors.
$18 +tax for valet only parking was ridiculous.
Redeeming feature: Starbucks coffee was complimentary. Staff friendly and helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jackson13 Nice Second Stay at this Riverfront Location
My wife and I stayed again at this hotel for one night prior to a flight home from Tampa Airport. If you will be spending time in your room, I recommend that you pay for a river view room so that you can enjoy watching the boat traffic on the Hillsborough River, the crew teams practicing and looking at the interesting architecture of the University of Tampa’s Henry B. Plant building. The hotel is also positioned for nice views of the sunset from your balcony, weather permitting.
This is an older hotel, but the rooms have recently been renovated and are nice, though the bathrooms are a bit tight. The hotel is located next to MacDill Park and a short distance from a number of restaurants and museums. The city is still working on the River Walk in front of the hotel, which is fun to watch but can be a little noisy at times during the day. When it is done, it will be great to be able to enjoy the River Walk directly from the hotel.
We spent time at the pool area by the river, which is very enjoyable, though having the smoking area right next to it is a poor design. The the bar/ restaurant is good, also overlooking the river. There is a workout facility by the pool. We found most of the staff members to be friendly and accommodating.
This was our second stay and we would stay at this property again if we are in the area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by christmaself Excellent Stay
An older building but beautifully updated with great staff, rooms, facilities. The balconies are nice to relax with a coffee or a drink and watch the little fishing boats and kayaks go by. The pool area is a spacious setup including seating overlooking the riverwalk. Everything was clean. Would not hesitate to stay again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CherylT2015 Very pleased with my experience
I traveled to the Sheraton Tampa Riverwalk Hotel from a high-end hotel in Sarasota. The Sarasota hotel was more than twice the cost for an overnight stay so I figured I'd need to adjust my expectations accordingly at the Sheraton. I was quite pleased to find that not only had the Sheraton met my expectations, but far exceeded them: excellent staff, clean, stylish room and quiet. I was only there for one night, but I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HWood Great Sheraton Property
The Sheraton Tampa Riverwalk is a great SPG property. The staff really does their best to accommodate all guest. The rooms are quite roomy and the restaurant provides excellent food if you don't feel like leaving the hotel. The gym is also a great feature of this hotel, as it provides your standard equipment plus additional things to help you condition and de-stress.
Overall, I do recommend this property for individuals who want a nice property and within walking distance to many downtown restaurants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dawn677 SPG is the key
We stayed here for a business trip for my husband. I tagged along for the week as well. What an amazing hotel. The staff was the best I have seen. They were all so friendly and helpful. I loved the SPG program. When we checked in we got our instant upgrade to the club level. What a welcome surprise. Real breakfast (eggs, bacon, sausage, oatmeal...etc), snacks all day including a selection of drinks, and appetizers at night. I told all the members of our group that they should have signed up for the SPG as well because it was a free membership that really pays off. I will be revisiting this hotel and others in the chain for sure. I have already booked a room for tonight at a sister hotel closer to home.
