Sheraton Tampa Riverwalk Hotel
The Sheraton Tampa Riverwalk sits on the banks of the Hillsborough River, just across from the University of Tampa and the Henry B. Plant Museum. Among other things, it offers travelers one of the best locations for access to popular Tampa attractions. Heading over the to University of Tampa campus to check out the Plant Museum is definitely recommended during your stay at the Sheraton Riverwalk, and you're also encouraged to enjoy a walk or two along the riverfront when you find yourself with some down time. To the east of the hotel is the downtown area, offering a number of shopping, dining, and entertainment options. One of the well-established Tampa hotels, the recently renovated Sheraton Riverwalk is better than ever. If you are in town for business or just want to explore the downtown area, you'll do well to consider a stay here.
There are 277 total guest rooms and suites at the Sheraton Tampa Riverwalk, and while all of them are cozy and inviting, you'll arguably want to try to secure one with a view of the river. In addition to looking out over the river, these west-facing rooms also offer terrific views of the University of Tampa and the Arabic-style building that houses the Plant Museum, once the Tampa Bay Hotel. You will pay a little more to stay in one of the rooms that overlooks the river at the Sheraton Riverwalk Hotel, but it's worth it. While the decor of the guest units here is not overly elaborate, it should prove to be attractive enough for most travelers' tastes. You can expect your room or suite to be clean and well-outfitted, and a good night's sleep is all but guaranteed thanks to the premium, custom-designed beds.
Free wireless internet access helps make a stay at the Sheraton Tampa Riverwalk all the more enticing, and other in-room amenities include cable TV, a coffeemaker with free tea and coffee products, a telephone with voice mail, a hair dryer, an iron, and an ironing board. Should you book one of the rooms with a river view, you will also enjoy access to your own private balcony. When you're not relaxing in your room, checking out all the other amenities, such as the restaurants and fitness room, that the Sheraton Riverwalk Hotel has to offer is always a possibility.
While Tampa boasts plenty of good restaurants, you won't want to miss the Ashley Street Grille during your stay at the Sheraton Riverwalk. This on-site restaurant is known for its quality, and it offers an attractive waterfront setting, which only adds to its appeal. Wine enthusiasts will also want to visit the Ashley Street Bar during their stay, and room service is available between the hours of 6:30 a.m. and 10 p.m. if you want to enjoy some drinks or a meal in the comfort of your room. In addition to a restaurant and a bar, the Sheraton Tampa Riverwalk offers a heated outdoor swimming pool that overlooks the Hillsborough River and 12,000 square feet of meeting space. This meeting space is ideal for wedding receptions, and like some of the other Tampa hotels, the Sheraton Riverwalk offers good wedding packages.
Should you want to keep up with your workouts during a stay at the Sheraton Riverwalk Hotel, there is an on-site fitness room that you're free to use, and access to a local health club is also included in the rates. However, with all there is to do in the Tampa and St. Petersburg area, you might find it hard to fit in a workout. Booking an eco tour, enjoying water sports at an area beach such as Clearwater, and exploring regional theme parks like Busch Gardens and Adventure Island are other good ways to stay active if that's your aim. A Tampa vacation offers something for everyone, so book your stay at the downtown Sheraton Riverwalk, and check out the endless possibilities for yourself.
