    New Years Eve

    My wife and I had the opportunity to experience New Year's Eve at the Karol Hotel in Clearwater, FL and had a very memorable experience. The property is beautifully accented with a very warming portico which sets the tone for the experience of this beautifully designed property. Our first stop was the front desk with made sure we were welcomed as special guests and informed us of the evenings activities. We ventured the rooftop bar were the staff was extremely welcoming and experts in making magnificent cocktails. The rooms are very well designed and made the stay very comfortable. Can't say enough about this property, a gem in the Marriott portofilo. Maurice

    Florida Rooftop experience

    Amazing rooftop experience. Highly recommend charcuterie board, getting there early and sitting on balcony. We had great service and met the owners , Fred and Karol. Such a wonderful love story and they are hands on owners. If you want a Florida experience, definitely come here.

    Amazing Hotel with a Fantastic Team

    This past year I have spent around six months at the Karol Hotel on and off. I would like to start by saying that the team who look after you at the hotel are amazing. Netta and all of the various teams from those at the front desk, to the restaurant staff, the bar and rooftop bar staff to the team who cleaned the rooms they were so kind, professional and friendly. The hotel is in a fantastic location close to the airport and the local shops and restaurants. The rooftop bar has views that are second to none. I cannot thank the team enough for making me a home away from home and looking after me so well during my stays. I look forward to seeing everyone again either for a business trip or a personal holiday. Can’t recommend this hotel and the team enough, well worth a visit.

    5 out of 5. Gorgeous brand new property. Spotless excellent customer service. This is a new hotel, the rooms are spacious, beautiful, immaculate and soothing to the senses. There are doorbells outside each room. There are in room buttons to press for privacy. The bathrooms look like a magazine. This hotel is well equipped for business travelers. I travel a lot and the staff is extremely, personable, professional attentive to make each individual stay tailored to their needs. The rooftop bar is beautiful and relaxed, the view is lovely of Tampa and Clearwater. Highly recommended.
