    Great atmosphere service and food

    Amazing views. Great service. Excellent food and ambiance . The views are second to none. Look towards Tampa Bay at sunset. Order a charcuterie board and a drink and enjoy your evening as you watch the sunset. Get there early to get a spot at the rooftop (after 4) or sit outside by the waterfall downstairs

    Odd little problems throughour the stay

    The hotel itself is pretty, rooms were nice, and the staff was friendly. We stayed five nights, with 4 people in the room. Housekeeping would remove our dirty towels and leave us 3 clean towels NOT 4. We were happy to hang up our used towels to reuse. but they were removed every day, and every morning we had to call for an extra towel. In addition, the conditioner dispenser wasn't refilled, and we had to ask for other toiletries that weren't replenished. One evening, we tried to swim, and the water was incredibly cold, and a gentleman cam out to tell us they forgot to turn on the pool heater that day. I probably wouldn't stay here again.

    Five star accommodations at the Karol Hotel!

    Gorgeous hotel!! My husband I were extremely pleased with our decision to stay here. They have ample parking - which is free! Upon entering the modern lobby, we were greeted by friendly smiles welcoming us to the hotel. Our room was spacious, clean, and included 2 arm chairs! Which we appreciate as not everyone is comfortable watching TV in bed. The bed was comfortable and they have plenty of plugs on the nightstand. The bathroom was huge, very clean, and nicely decorated with a large shower with 2 shower heads. Again, we were so comfortable staying here and that says a lot as my husband is super picky.
