Holiday Inn Express & Suites Tampa USF-Busch Gardens

Reviewed February 21, 2009

Went with my two teenage children to Tampa, for a trip to Busch Gardens and swimming with manatees. Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express, right next to Busch Gardens. Has to be a brand new hotel. Carpets, bathrooms, furnishings very nice and modern. As for the Rooms, the best of any holiday inn i've ever stayed in. Excellent Staff. My children enjoyed the breakfast and pool. Wifi was super-fast, able to get work done!
Was able to take their hotel shuttle to the park, great savings on parking :) Hotel is right off the highway, easy for us to find from the airport and downtown. Already booked there again for a 3 day business meeting in May! Absolutely Recommend!

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.
