“Good Stay for Tampa Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

We stayed at the Hyatt Place for 4 days in the middle of June. We had reservations for 3 days since we had a long drive from the Chicago area. We pushed through overnight and arrived a day early. They were very accomodating and found us a room for the extra night.

The room we were given for the 4 nights was a refurbished room. Very nice with 2 double beds and a pullout couch. Very comfortable stay for 2 adults and 2 children, plenty of room. Microwave and fridge also in room. The breakfast every morning was very good. They had donuts, bagels, eggs, sausage, toast, cereal, etc. Very nice and convenient to easily and quickly get breakfast before heading out for a day. Our kids are pretty picky eaters, and they always ate a full breakfast. The pool is small, but does the trick to cool down after a day out. There are plenty of loungers, a couple tables with umbrellas, and always a couple kids in the pool to play with our little ones. There were doing some renovations while we were there, but it didn't cause us any problems.

Pretty good location. Was only a couple miles from Busch Gardens and they have a free shuttle so you don't have to pay the 17 dollars to park. About 10-15 minutes away from the Lowry Zoo. Easy drive there. There are plenty of nice restaurants close by to eat at. Didn't seem like a nice area to just be out walking around, need a car here. We also went to Clearwater Beach one day which I really recommend. However, it's a 45 minute drive, I didn't realize this until we got there. We would stay here again if we were doing the same thing as we did this time, I do like to be closer to the beach then this was.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms have been refurbished. They are working on lower floor rooms

I travel with my hubby and daughter - and this room layout was one of the best "standard" rooms we've been in yet! A king bed and a sleeper sofa separated by a 'half-wall' gave everyone some privacy - yet a nice flow to the room.

The strategically placed flat-screen TV allowed everyone to see the screen from their respective reclining positions...and provided a great use of the room to add a small wet bar and vanity/sink in the main room. The actual bathroom was too small (toilet and shower only) but it provided for the unusual room layout. It was a very European style room, which we enjoy traveling in much more than the typical American style room.

We will be back in December to use our Bush Gardens pass again, and will stay at this location for sure.

Room Tip: Free shuttle to/from Bush Gardens PLUS anywhere within a 3 mile radius....like University Mall or th...

My family was simply searching for a room for the night on our way to a wedding elsewhere in Tampa and we stumbled upon this Hyatt Place. Having never stayed at a Hyatt Place property I didn't really know what to expect. Let me just say I was impressed. The rooms were huge and the included breakfast was pretty amazing. If I was planning a trip to Busch Gardens this is where I would stay. You get a lot for a very reasonable price. There is shuttle service to the park, good parking for your car, nice pool, a nice casual restaurant and bar inside the hotel, other restaurants and services nearby.

Loved the space this hotel gave us. Sectional sofa sleeper for our son, while we had a king bed in another area of the room. Clean shower with great water pressure. Very close to restaurants and Busch Gardens! Breakfast was plentiful! We can't wait to return!

Nice place in a good location. My only real complaint is no microwave in the room. I went downstairs for breakfast and brought it back up to my room. Good food but not my omelette was still cold inside. Would have been really nice to have a microwave. I am a business traveler, frequently arrive late at night. I'm accustomed to being able to heat a can of soup or microwave some popcorn since restaurants are typically closed. They have a microwave available downstairs, it's just not very convenient. Nice roomy rooms, great shower, good tv but not many channels. Restaurant is more of a nuke and serve but plenty of good places to eat in the daytime and evening. Free shuttle to the parks is a nice amenity as well. I give it a four point five.

This is the second time my family of three has stayed at this hotel. I love it for several reasons. 1. Value - The rates are wonderful, heated pool, breakfast is included (and very good), and they offer a free shuttle to the parks. That's a lot of bang for your buck 2. Rooms - They are updating the rooms right now and they are perfect for our family. Comfy beds on one side of a small divider and a little living room with a couch, mini fridge and sink on the other. It's ideal when you want to put the kids to bed but the adults want to stay up later. In most hotel rooms you feel like you're on top of each other, but these really offer a lot more space. 3. Staff - The staff is always polite, always helpful and the place is always clean. This is and will continue to be my go-to hotel for a weekend getaway in Tampa.

We stayed at the Hyatt place during our visit to Bush Gardens. It is very close to the park and to area restaurants. The hotel has been in service for 8 years under the Hyatt Place Name and standard. It was in the middle on a non intrusive refresh. The renovation staff had one elevator and the guest had the other during working hours. We stayed on a brand new all room at the top floor and it was nice and new. It is a Hyatt Place, recently refreshed very close to Bush Garden and USF. What more can you say.

Room Tip: Ask for a newly renovated room
