I stayed at this location over Thanksgiving week. We had a wonderful time and this hotel was a great choice for us. We visited Busch Gardens many times and although I wouldn't suggest walking you definitely could. The hotel also provides a shuttle to the park although I did not use it during my stay. I am a platinum Priority Club member and was treated as such by this hotel. Our room was upgraded to a beautiful suite. The breakfast was good and plentiful. Something for everyone. The addition of pancakes for me was an added benefit. There was a minor issue regarding my points that was handled promptly and efficiently by Ryan, the manager at this property. Also, I noticed that Ryan was on duty on Thanksgiving and found that he gave employees the day off and worked himself. That indicates that he treats his employees as well as he treats the guests. All in all I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to the Tampa, FL area.
