This lakeside hotel has a beautiful boardwalk where you might catch sight of turtles, alligators and other interesting creatures. The nature preserve is relaxing to overlook from balconies or take in from the walking bridge. Two-room, spacious suites with king beds and pullout sofas are best for families. HDTV, Wi-Fi, remote printing and mini-fridges make it comfortable. Whirlpool garden tub/shower combos make it easy to bathe the kids whatever way is easiest.
Located within ten minutes of two airports (Tampa and St. Petersburg/ Clearwater), a free shuttle is available to the airports and local attractions. The Dali Museum, Tropicana Field and Raymond James Stadium are all close by. The award-winning Gulf beaches are one of the biggest reasons to visit.
Onsite LUNA Restaurant serves up good eats, and mini-fridges are in the rooms for leftovers or snacks. Take advantage of the private billiard room or relax in the heated outdoor infinity pool or Jacuzzi. The hotel also offers a spa and 24-hour fitness center.

The location and overall service was excellent. The room was cleaned, the staff was super friendly and helpful. The only suggestion I have is the hotel hallways could use updated carpeting. Otherwise, everything was awesome.
This is an older Hilton hotel but that is no excuse for the room not being clean. In my case it was half eaten food left in the room. Also the bedding is worn and needs to be replaced. Overall not a very comfortable hotel.
