“enjoyed our stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

The staff at the hotel was great. Stayed here hoping it was close enough to walk to Busch Gardens but that would be a pretty long walk, so we used the shuttle which runs hourly and it worked for us.comfortable and quiet after long days at theme parks and the hot breakfast in the morning was a perfect start.

Me and my fiance travel to Tampa once a year. From the beginning we went to the Hyatt and have had no complaints what so ever. Clean rooms , great and helpful staff and good breakfast. They also have free WiFi and as we haven't rented a car anytime that we have went to Tampa the hotel shuttle will take you around up to 3 miles which that's all you need as the university mall is walking distance also Walmart , red lobster , waffle house and the list goes on and on. Love staying at this hotel.

Wanted to be close to Bush Gardens- fit the bill nicely. Close by to fast food places and restaurants also. Only issue I had was all the additional "taxes"that got added on every night that weren't included in the advertised price.

This is by far the best place to stay near Busch gardens/Moffitt and USF. THE rooms are gorgeous with ample space a large couch and ottoman with a desk and little kitchenette, no microwave But they would look tacky in this setup. There is a microwave downstairs for everyone to use.
The bed is very comfortable and the pillows are squishy and downy. The staff is awesome and the breakfast is superb with fresh hot breakfast sandwiches and hot oatmeal with all toppings and fruit and cottage cheese.
They have a nice shuttle to run you wherever you need to go. And the workout room is very adequate. Plus there is 24/7 galley service with beer and wine burgers and such... And all reasonably priced.
Everything is very clean, it's the only place to stay as far as I'm concerned.

We spent 3 nights here on a recent trip to Tampa. We purchased the hotel/Busch Gardens combo through the park website. It was an excellent value & included unlimited passes for 14 days to both Busch Gardens & Adventure Island. The hotel is less than a mile from the park however due to the extreme heat/humidity, we took advantage of the free shuttle rather than walk. Rooms are spacious & include a pull out couch. The only downside was the beds are full/double but comfortable just the same. Complimentary hot/cold breakfast daily was good & changed slightly each day & included cereal, oatmeal, fruit, yogurt, pastries, eggs, pancakes, french toast, egg sandwiches, sausage links. Staff was friendly, greeting us each time we left & returned. Check in/out was a breeze. 24 hour hot food available. Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is beautiful, modern, with a friendly and courteous staff. The complimentary breakfast was very nice and convenient. The Gallery Menu available 24 hours is wonderful and after a long day to be able to order for pick up in the lobby at great prices was excellent. The installed connections for the TV/computer kept my teenager happily watching his laptop on the TV while I was out at meetings. The room was big with a separate sleeping area and sitting area with a corner pull out couch. The photos on the website are very accurate. I would happily stay here again.

The place was a welcome relief after spending the summer day at Busch Gardens. Friendly staff, and the check in was a breeze. It's a,great 3 star hotel and for the price it's even better considering that you get free breakfast and wifi. Just make sure that when you check in, ask for the room that have the poll view and not the railroad tracks.

Room Tip: Choose the room that have the pool view instead of the train tracks
