Need hotel reco

My husband, 8 and 11 year old sons want to go to Legends Field for Yankee Spring Training in March. I want to stay in a nice hotel as this is our big "Trip" for the year - must have a pool too. Any suggestions?

How far can you stay away from Legends Field? Since you didnt mention location or Price, I would go with Marriott Waterside downtown Tampa, or Grande Hyatt Westshore on Tampa Bay.

Of course the best would be a hotel on the beach at Clearwater Beach, or St. Pete Beach.

But if you are looking to stay closer to the Legends Field, you could look into a hotel at "Rocky Point" in Tampa. It is on the Tampa side of the Courtney Campbell Causeway (S.R. 60) that links Tampa to Clearwater. About a 10-15 minute drive to Legends Field and they are on an inlet of Tampa bay, so will have a water view. Its not the Gulf beaches, but the kids would probably enjoy the water. There is also a bayside beach called Ben T. Davis beach on the same island as your hotel. There is also a few nice restaurants and lounges on the island.

There is a Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn Express there for sure. I think there is also a Doubletree and a Radisson.

Hey Moms....

My husband and son are also going down in March 07 for Yankees spring training.

Have you had any luck with your hotel choices??

Thanks in advance,
