3-5 star hotel on a great beach in or near Tampa in March?

Going to spring training and want a nice hotel on a great beach. Does not have to be in Tampa. Maybe St. Petersburg area? At least within 45 minutes of Tampa would be great.

Thanks!

There are no beaches in Tampa. Anywhere in St. Petersburg or Clearwater that is along the Gulf would be okay. It could be more that a 45 minute drive if you hit rush hour though.

Probably better to ask in the Clearwater forum.

Closest nice beach is Clearwater Beach. Outside of rush hour, about a 40-45 minute drive from the beach to Legends Field in Tampa.

There is a couple nice hotels on the 'Sand Key' part of the beach, the Sheraton Sand Key is very nice and right on the beach. Check also the Hilton. All the hotels on Clearwater Beach are within minutes of each other, so the drive time to Tampa will be the same from any of them. Many restaurants and bars on Clearwater Beach also.

St. Pete Beach is also nice with many hotels, but it will be a farther, and longer drive to the field.

Although these websites do not have information on hotels they do give a lot of good information about the Tampa Bay area. Check out 813area.com and 727area.com. One is for Tampa and the other is the St Petersburg & Clearwater area.
