I booked this hotel for 3 nights for the start of our Florida trip, I was using my Priority club points for this stay we had a double queen bedded room which was fantastic for the 3 of us.
Only a 15 min drive from Tampa International Airport where we had flown into direct from London Gatwick, MUCH better and quieter than Orlando Airport not so touristy and less Kid's.
The hotel has a large outside pool it said it was heated But not the night i went in. There is a nice sun area with plenty of sun lounger, Very helpful staff and a FREE Shuttle bus to and from Busch Gardens only a 5 min drive, the driver will take you any where within the Tampa area but they would charge you for that service. also within walking distance of the hotel there are plenty of food outlets and Restaurants, as the hotel does not do any evening meals. Breakfast here is great a FREE hot buffet American style and all the food is kept hot and was always getting refilled with new food.
We also drove to Clearwater beach, St Petes beach on the Gulf of Mexico and to St Petersburg on Tampa Bay all within easy driving distance. Fantastic area to Visit TRY IT YOURSELF.
