... drive to Perry, FL. Yes, we really are in Florida. The temperatures continue to be in the high 90s, and we continue to have more rain showers than we would have expected in July. But it hasn't hampered our camping experiences. The highlight of Perry was our trip to Walmart and cooking delicious steaks over an oak campfire. Yesterday we traveled further south along the west coast to the St. Petersburg area. The ...

... short run to Tampa with 3 impressive thunder storms along the way and watching fireworks on the drive across Tampa Bay and from our hotel.

Ricky, our little dog, who is now an official "Emotional Support Animal" had a rough time. As we arrived at the hotel the fireworks got the best of him and he needed emotional support making to the room. Not an impressive debut as an official aide animal.

Having managed to scale down to 1 suitcase and getting treated to a Towncar to the Airport, my flight to Miami is delayed! I'm off the Wagon for this vacation so it's off to the airport bar I go! Thanks for the ride Carlos. The delay turned into re routing me through London and a total loss of a full day in Milan. Luckily during my Heathrow layover Nessie came to the ...

I posted this yesterday to Facebook, but didn't put it on the email blog. Thought you would get a kick out of this. I decided that I really had to know just how many photos I had taken in a year.
Seems like I was way off! The grand total was 20,978 photos. Yikes! That's an addiction.

It may take me years to get a book together for our travels. But fun seeing and reliving the memories.

    Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Bay Harbor Hotel Tampa

    Horrible Hotel and Service

    from

    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.

    Ok accomodations, but helpfulness is AOK

    from

    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!

    from

    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.

    Poor service/Dirty Rooms/Mold/Showing it's age

    from

    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

    from

    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!!

    from

    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.

    Great restaurant

    from

    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!

    from

    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!!

    Very Nice

    from

    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.

    Fab Views across Tampa Bay

    from

    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.
