Hotwire Hotel: Need Tampa help

By crustycruises,

Forgive me if I mess up somehow; this is my first post here.

I need a Tampa hotel for one night. An airport shuttle is a must and a cruise terminal shuttle would be nice. I found a 2.5* hotel for $44. Ameneties are: shuttle, restaurant, business centre, pool, and fitness centre. The area is Westshore/Tampa Int'l Airport. Any ideas as to what this might be?

Thanks for any assistance!

What are your dates? I found a similar property for October 16th, but it would be nice to match your dates.

This is a tricky one, at least for me! I thought I would put in a reply to try and help, but I hope someone else might know the area better.

I find it tricky because it is rated 2.5* but has amenities (like business center) that are usually associated with a higher star rating. It does not have the complimentary breakfast or suite-style rooms that are usually associated with the 2.5 * level. So to me, it seems to be a bit of an odd beast.

I almost wonder if it might be the Park Plaza, but that is only a fairly weak guess. The Park Plaza does not explicitly state that they have a business center although they mention fax and copy services. They also have room service and you would think they would be classed as 3* with this and their other amenities. They used to show up through Priceline at the 3* level and people did not feel they merited a 3* rating, but I don't know if their rating would have dropped on Hotwire as a result.... :)

Sorry I can't be of more help! I hope you will let us know what it is if you decide to go for it.
