“hotel by busch gdns”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2009

drove past the entrance to busch and this hotel was on the opposite side just after the end of the grounds.the staff told us it had opened in oct.2009.you could tell, it even the faint smell from the new carpets and furniture .
the staff were very friendly ,the free breakfast was very substantial with eggs ,bacon,cereal,toast,cakes and lots of drinks.
we checked out the queen bedroom,the king bedroom and the king suite which included a small sitting area,all were well kitted out with lovely decor.
you are only a couple of miles from the 275 freeway which helped when getting on the main route out of tampa.
lovely hotel,nice pool if a little small but with a large sitting area.

  • Liked — position,decor and staff
