I stayed here as a part of a pre-summer family getaway to Busch Gardens Tampa 5/30/14-6/1/14. As there was 12 of us in total we needed a hotel that would accommodate all of us comfortably plus offer attractive amenities that would cater to nearly everyone. This Residence Inn certainly did not disappoint. Everyone had a 2 bedroom suite which I expected to be large but never did I think the suites would have included as much as they did. While we appreciated the FULL kitchens and the 2 bedroom/2 bathroom layout the fireplaces in the rooms blew me away. Granted this was late May in Florida but a nice touch nonetheless. The bed was divine and the shower was piping hot and had plenty of water pressure.
What sealed this property for us was the free breakfast. Most of us in our party made it up in time to take advantage and we thoroughly enjoyed the myriad of selections available. I especially loved the yogurt/granola/fresh fruit cups they prepared.
Recovering from the hustle of the theme park was a breeze here as the hotel has a pool, whirlpool spa and a mini basketball court. Truly something for everyone to enjoy.
The hotel itself is tastefully decorated and was aesthetically pleasing throughout. The only pain point was a surly front desk associate. I thought maybe it was just us that annoyed her but her attitude was present with everyone in the line to check in that evening. That blemish notwithstanding I loved staying here and look forward to returning.
