... truly enjoyed ourselves there last year and felt totally at home! We can't wait to go to the "Crab Bag" and have a "crabby experience"!!! All I can say is, crabs, shrimp and oysters you better hide because we are coming...
For now, we are slowly driving up...with of course, a stop in Richmond, Virginia to see Alexandra!
This should be a very happy week!
... I am loving it!
Like I said...I grew up in a small town, so living in a major city that the people from here classify as "small" is crazy to me, but unlike anything I have ever experienced. Everything is better here. The weather, the architecture, the scenery, the food, the overall atmosphere.
So far...I feel like I am on a permanent vacation. I look out my bedroom window and see palm trees swaying in the light breeze. I walk outside and am able to ...

Before heading to Busch Gardens, we enjoyed some of the amenities of our campground here outside Tampa. We are staying at a vast campground next to an even larger RV dealer. These guys sell all types of units, from tent trailers to luxury coaches. They have a restaurant at the dealership (free to campers) and seemingly hundreds of employees, all of whom ...
It is bright and sunny as the plane lands. Delores is waiting in the airport and thank God that I only have a roll aboard. Delores meets me at the airport, and we soon meet Suzi. It us amazing how little time affects these two lively and lovely ladies. We drive to St. Pete Beach and check into our amazingly cute condo! Delores did a great job finding a place right on the beach! We spend the day settling in and buying supplies, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Bay Harbor Hotel Tampa
Checked in hotel @ 3:30 am on 2/19/05. Night person acted as if we were bothering because we wanted to check in. After about 10 minutes of him pecking on the computer we were finally given room keys.
Spent 3 nights here for a conference at a neighboring hotel. I will warn you, this section of Tampa is very spread out, so the reliance on a rental car, taxi, or the hotel's FREE shuttle service is necessary.
A great deal!
For a 3 day stay in Tampa during June 2004, we booked a great rate through Expedia and were pleasantly surprised. The room was nice, a king with a walkout balcony and great view of the bay. We enjoyed the pool and restaurant. The hotel is centrally located to Busch Gardens and St Petersburg beaches. We would definitely consider staying again.
Mold on the ceilings. Huge water stains all over the ceiling (wonder how much leaked out on the beds??). Carpet in the room had multiple blood-like stains. Management said it was orange gatorade (stains were red). Poor air condition system. Dirty bathroom. Poor maid service. Multiple burnt out lightbulbs. Room switch refused.
Great view, lotion, service and hotel
This is the second time we have stayed here. First time was last year when I saw George Steinbrenner in the parking lot with a big NY Yankee plate on back. I figured if he could stay here the pplace must be O.K. Turns out he owns it. Even with Yankees nor Steinbrenner being at top of my list, this hotel is friendly, great with people. Matt ,Dennis, Craig as guest services managers, Judith, Sara , Kiki at front desk , Christina and others in housekeeping have Steinbrenner filling his key positions with key players like he does his infamous Yankess. As I said I am not a Yankee fan but I am a total fan of the great people , service and stay at the Radisson Harbour Bay. (---)
Way over priced spend your money somewhere else!!
The room that I stayed in was awfull. The carpet had several stains, there were half eaten sunflower seeds on the nightstand when I arrived. There was a wet spot on the carpet. The maid service was terrible, all they did was make the bed and leave new towels if you were lucky. They did not vacuum, clean the sink or shower, clean the ice bucket day to day or the coffee machine. This hotel is way to expensive for that type of service. The view was great but not worth 150.00 per night for the service and condition of the room that you receive.
My wife is from Tampa and we were visiting there. Never had too much luck with the hotels in this city, but I got a great surprise with this hotel and found a package on Expedia. This is a New York Yankee hotel it appears as everything is named for a Yankee player. The Yankees train in this area in the spring. Maybe Steinbrenner owns it? Anyway, The newly-opened restaurant is incredible....great food, great prices and great service. Honestly everything we ate was wonderful! The rooms are clean, very nice, roomy and offered us a great view of the bay with access to a balcony replete with a table and chairs. We would absolutely stay here again. Bathroom is very nice and large. Bed is very comfortable. Close to the Westshore business/entertainment area and to Clearwater. You need a car however to get around. Nice pool and exercise facility which we didnt use.
Great Views of Tampa Bay!
Good deal from Expedia! Hotel was very clean, staff friendly (especially in restaurant). Restaurant was just opening but staff was great! Location was good but definitely need a car to get around. Nothing within walking distance. Ask for a bayview room...great views of Tampa Bay. I would definitely stay here again!!
I was in Tampa for the Outback bowl on Jan 1. The hotel offers great views of the bay and is easy to get to. The only down side is the lack of resturants. The staff was awesome answering all of our questions.
The room was large and clean. I would stay here again if I'm in the area.
We stayed here for 3 nights during a break from Orlando, following a trip to Clearwater Beach. We loved the position of the hotel overlooking the causeway with aview of Clearwter and the pelicans fishing at the waters edge. The rooms were big compared to the room we stayed in in Orlando - more like our good hotel rooms in UK. very clean. Hotel reception excellent the staff were really helpful and friendly. It seemed to be a place for airline staff to stay, we were the only ones in the pool with the same view as our room.
