This hotel is very new and stylish. Large flat screen TVs and contemporary styling. Very clean. The receptionist recommended that we take a cab to Busch Gardens, because it was faster and not much more than parking. Excellent recommendation! The breakfast buffet was nice with waffles and great coffee. We accidentally left our headlights on and the security guard let the front desk know. So they called us at midnight so we could turn them off. Now that's service!
There were only a couple of negatives: The breakfast buffet was supposed to remain open until 9:30 (weekdays) but by a little past 9:00 it was all packed up and put away. However, when we asked the attendant nicely, she brought out a plate for us. Very nice. The only other thing I faulted this hotel on was that the only thing they did as far as cleaning the room, was making the bed and replacing towels. They didn't even empty the trash!
Overall, this is a hotel I would put on my list. The location was excellent as well.
