5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Once again we returned to this excellent hotel to attend the "Herman's Hermits" concerts held at Busch Gardens. The hotel manager "Manny" went out of his way to make sure things were just right for all the fans staying there. The hotel is extremely clean, and the staff is very friendly and courteous. A free hotel breakfast is included each day. Free shuttle service is provided to destinations within 3 miles of the hotel. This is certainly the only place to stay when visiting Tampa, Florida.

I can't say enough good things about the Wingate by Wyndham in Tampa. Our fan club stays there every year, during the Herman's Hermits shows at Busch Gardens. Manny, Moira, Connie, Cosmito and the other staff members are so good to all of us. Upon entering the lobby, we are greeted with Welcome signs for our fan club and it doesn't end there. There were snack bags awaiting us, when we checked in, we had a Pizza Party in the breakfast area one night, they take us back and forth to Busch Gardens every day and they treat us like family when we are there. We start our day with a great breakfast buffet, which includes something for everyone. There are the usual cereals, muffins, bagels, etc., but also scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and sausage gravy and belgium waffles! The hotel is conveniently located a mile from Busch Gardens and in close proximity to many restaurants in area. The Wingate shuttle will take you within a 3 mile radius of the hotel and runs until 8:30pm, which is perfect for dinner in the evenings.The rooms are quiet and the beds are comfortable. It is the cleanest hotel that I've ever stayed in. The staff there is very friendly and go out of their way to be helpful. What more could you ask for? You won't be disappointed if you stay at the Wingate. I'll definitely be back next year...
