If you don't drive it's going to be expensive to go there and back for only a couple of hours.

Doesn't the facility have some kind of arrangement in place for transportation for their incoming visitors/staff?

Maybe you can arrange for a cab to take you to GCREC and then return for you at a certain time.

The Hilton at Ybor City might be nice if you want to visit Ybor City, which is a historic district, and at night it becomes an area known for nightclubs and bars caterering to a young age group. I think the Hampton Inn being recommended is also the Ybor City location (1301 7th Ave. Tampa). Ybor City is also the location of the famous Columbia Restaurant, known for its Spanish/Cuban cuisine.

However, if you stay at either of these two locations you will have a longer distance to travel in order to get to GCREC. The hotels on the web page for GCREC will be closer to their location. There is a Hampton Inn (10110 Horace Ave, Tampa) that is near the WestField Brandon Mall and near the other hotels listed by GCREC.

I will be having a weekend free and my agent is suggesting that being centrally located might be better in terms of places to eat and sightsee. The Columbia Restaurant has been recommended for its cuisine. I guess I could arrange for a cab from the hotel to drop me and come back at a specific time.

Finally opted for Hilton Garden Inn Ybor and the school is sending over a vehicle for pickup. My gratitude goes out to all of you for your time and effort in helping me. Thank you very much.
