I was flying into Tampa, FL for a business conference this past month. Conveniently the conference center and hotel were located at the same place, the Mainsail Suites. I had never heard of this place before but assumed it was decent since our company chose to put everyone up there.
When I arrived there the staff was very polite and helpful as I checked in. I was impressed with the cleanliness of the lobby, and the amenities the place had to offer. She woman behind the desk explained that they had a pool, full bar and restaurant, and hot tub at the facility.
After checking in I was very interested in checking out these amenities she had talked about. I walked out to the pool to find a few people swimming and laying out in the sun. It was very large for a hotel pool and looked well maintained. The hot tub matched its cleanliness.
I made my way through the gym afterwards to find that it was a decent size for a hotel gym. It was limited, but had enough to stuff in there to get a decent work out in. I figured it would suffice for the few days that I was there.
After checking out all that I went over to the bar. It looked very nice, but the one thing that caught my eye was the happy hour specials they had. From 5:30-6:30 Monday-Friday they offered free beer. That is just unheard of. It was about 4:30 so I hurried to my room to put my bags down so I could take advantage of this great deal.
I then walked up the stairs to my room and was pleasantly surprised at how nice the place was. I was sharing it with a few of my coworkers so we got a “quad” room. There was a full kitchen, refrigerator, and full size living room just in the main area. The bedrooms were equally as nice and spacious. This included a walk in closet with plenty of space.
I was very impressed with the amenities at the Mainsail Suites in Tampa, FL. From what I saw I was going to have a very comfortable stay here, and would definitely recommend this place. I then hurried out to catch the happy hour specials at the bar.
