Stayed at the Bay Harbour hotel for 6 nights in December 2012. The hotel was very comfortable, nice clean, large room. I had a city view but try and get a room overlooking the water as it is lovely (Although you may get some music from Whisky Joe's Bar). There is no free breakfast, although Crabby Bills Restaurant is adjoining the hotel where you can buy breakfast. The hotel is conveniently located on the causeway which will take you to straight to Clearwater and down to St Petersburg. The juntion of I-4 and I-75 are also very close. The airport is literally minutes away and so is very easy to get to if you are coming into Tampa by air, but you cannot hear any airport noise from the room. There are vending/ice machines and also a microwave which is very convenient on floors. Parking is free in their very large car park. There is no guest laundry in this hotel, only a laundry service. On the whole, would recommend this hotel if visiting this area..
