This was my first trip to Florida... by Christopher J Huber April 2011

I decided to treat myself to a "B-DAY" vacation and figured that Florida would be a great destination. I picked Tampa due to the attractions and events that were available, and was pleasantly surpised to find that the area has more to offer than 1 week allows!!!

I was not able to plan everything before departing, but after arriving I found help from the staff at the Comfort Suites next to the Tampa Fairgrounds. They were able to assist me with local knowledge of the area and provided me with suggestions for activities that suited my interests.

They have a great facility (BASICALLY NEW) that is decorated with care, comfortable, clean and located in the center of EVERYTHING that you could possibly think of. During this trip there were a few concerts in the area that made it challenging to find a place to stay. They were able to provide me a room on short notice, helped me get around, and they even have a shuttle to the Hard Rock Casino right down the road!

Overall I am very pleased with my experience at this hotel, and would suggest it to anyone who is interested in staying in the Tampa area. Thanks again for everything!!! ~Chris from Ohio~

Room Tip: All of the rooms here are great!

This is a relatively new hotel with lots of conveniences. The shuttle service is very good as it saves on gas and parking fees. The drivers were helpful and on time. The breakfast was quite nice with "make your own waffle machines". Nice variety, great for families. Rooms are large and quiet. I would stay again. Easy drive to casino.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back of the hotel.

We were a little dissappointed with breakfst this time, We preferred the egg patty and the sausage this time was really tough. Scrambled eggs were gritty.

Everything else about the hotel was perfect.

PROS: Clean, quiet, friendly staff, comfy bedding, big rooms
CONS: Hard to regulate room temperature

Definitely stay at Comfort Suites Fairgrounds, it's #1 for a reason!

We booked this hotel as a package with Busch Gardens tickets, and it was the best deal compared to getting the room & tickets a-la-carte. There was a deal for buy 2 nights get one FREE, loved that. The BG tickets were good for the length of our stay which you can't get without the package, which is BG's thing not these guys but definitely worth mentioning. The hotel had a FREE shuttle going to & from Busch Gardens as well as the casino (we didn't go to the casino but the option was there), very friendly driver who told us that the hotels closer to BG are NOT in a good neighborhood and many have bedbugs.

This NEW hotel looked just like the pictures, very trendy and modern, fun for a change. It was very clean, friendly staff. Upon check-in we were provided with a list of restaurants separated by type of food fare, along with directions. We liked that. The room was very close to the elevators which was a concern until we realized how quiet the room was!

The pool was kind of small, but the kids made the best of it. No hot tub but that was okay. It did smell a bit like propane or natural gas when we first entered the pool area but it dissipated quickly. Pool towels are available so you don't have to get your room towels dirty/wet.

As for the room itself, again it looked just like the pictures, with that cool turquoise color on some of the walls. It overlooked the parking lot, but again no big deal there. It was clean, quiet and had plenty of room for the four of us. Built-in nightlight in the bathroom. We have a 12-year-old girl and 9-year-old boy, so both needed their own space. Our daughter slept in the other queen bed and our son slept on the sofa bed, perfect. The beds were AWESOME, very comfy. Housekeeping staff gave the option of full cleaning service or just replacing the towels; we chose the latter since we'd be in & out a lot. The only thing that was aggravating was the thermostat: the room was either hot or cold, even though we changed the temperature by only one degree.

The breakfast was yummy, plenty of options including hot stuff (waffles, eggs, sausage, etc) and lasted until 9:30am so even those who sleep in could get a bite. Coffee is available 24/7 if you need caffeine later than noon :) We used the business area to access our e-mail, check the weather, etc. which was convenient too. We didn't use the fitness center but it was well-equipped.

Overall, we loved our stay. The only other thing that would have made it better was if the rain had held off until we left, but that's not under their control.

Room Tip: Definitely read the most recent reviews!

The rooms were clean and the beds, including the pullout sofa were excellent after a long day at busch gardens. The deluxe breakfast was great and a valuable perk with the kids. Fitness center and pool were clean a nd nice. The best part was the staff. The shuttle drivers were excellent and having drove to theme parks and delt with parking and lines to leave, the shuttle is the only way i ever want to go again. I cant say enough good things about our stay and when we do it again it will definately be here!
