This Hilton Garden Inn is located in the middle of a very large and winding industrial park (Sabal Industrial Park). A nice industrial park (lots of trees with Spanish Moss, etc.) but an industrial park nonetheless.
This is a run of the mill Hilton Garden Inn. Breakfast is good and serverd buffet style or cooked to order. The bar is tiny and closes at 9 pm. Fireplace area is nice and cozy, across the lobby from the dining area. Front desk staff were helpful.
Rooms are exactly as you see this on the hotel's web site. There is a small pantry area by check-in for water, microwaveable foods, sodas, toothpaste, newspapers, etc.
WIFI was easy to connect to. Pool area quite nice with lounging areas and a jacuzzi tub.
I am not sure about their shuttle service, but you will be driving at least 5 miles to get to any decent restaurant (Bonefish, etc.) If you get a car, get a map of the industrial park. It is like being lost in the Twilight Zone if you don't get a road map to get you out.
Avoid Broadway Avenue (yikes!) if you want to go into Ybor City to eat at The Columbia or do a bit of touristy shopping (The Columbia is a great restaurant).
Not a bad stay really....but this hotel is for folks who are attending meetings at nearby companies in this industrial park.
