When you step into the lobby of the Sheraton Tampa East Hotel, you feel as though you are entering the lobby of a high end hotel located in a cosmopolitan city such as New York. You immediately get the feeling that this is not a cookie cutter hotel. From the warm paint colors and luxurious carpeting to the “fireplace” in the lobby, you will simply love Tampa’s newest full service hotel.

The new Sheraton Tampa East Hotel, which is in the former Crowne Plaza Hotel, is the beautiful result of a $10 million dollar renovation. “We renovated everything from paint, furnishings, carpeting and lighting. We also completely renovated the back of the house items such as heating and cooling and fire safety equipment,” explained John Moorhead, General Manager.

You will find all of the amenities that the Sheraton brand has to offer from The Link (stay connected electronically), Sheraton Fitness programmed by Core Fitness and the much beloved Sheraton Sweet Sleeper bed.

With over 30,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, which includes a 5,000 sq. ft. grand ballroom and varying sized meeting rooms, you will be sure to be able to book your next business meeting, wedding or function at the Sheraton Tampa East Hotel. Conveniently located close to I-4 and I-75, this hotel will be the perfect retreat for you or your out of town guests.

The Sheraton Tampa East Hotel offers 266 spacious and beautifully appointed guest rooms which includes 36 Junior Suites and six Executive Suites. All of the rooms have balconies, and the comfort and convenience of each guest has been taken into account in designing the guest rooms. This includes an oversized desk, comfortable chair with ottoman, functional coffee table and plugs conveniently located for all of your electronic devices.

So, the next time you are looking for a “staycation” or have out of town guests coming, consider the Sheraton Tampa East Hotel. John Moorhead and his staff will make you and your guests feel right at home. Check out their website at for special rates and offers.
