Re-visited Emerald Greens resort a little while ago. For those of you who don't know this little boutique hotel, it's a 50-room resort hotel located near the Emerald Greens Country Club in Carrolwood, about 12 miles north of downtown Tampa. It is close to Dale Mabry Highway, but tucked away amidst 27 holes of golf. The rooms are tremendous - but the service is the best in Florida! If you want to truly enjoy your stay in Tampa, this is the place to stay - great decor, spacious rooms....but the service is beyond compare!!
