Plan a trip to Tampa and stay at our hotel near Florida State Fairgrounds. The Hampton Inn & Suites Tampa East Casino Area is 5 minutes away from the Hard Rock Tampa Casino. Browse the restaurants, shops, and attractions in the popular Channelside district-also the location of the Florida Aquarium, with more than 10,000 aquatic plants and animals. You can even tour a WWII-era merchant marine ship next door, all within minutes of our hotel in Seffner.
Visit the Henry B. Plant Museum, where Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders headquartered in the 1890s. Explore Bayshore Boulevard, known as the world's longest unbroken sidewalk and site of the swashbuckling Gasparilla Pirate Festival in February. Our Tampa hotel also gives you easy access to the 16,000-acre preserve known as Wilderness Park, which surrounds the Hillsborough River. Further along, try the advanced canoeing rapids at Hillsborough River State Park. You can even make short day trips from our Seffner hotel to famous beaches along the Gulf Coast, as well as St. Petersburg's Salvador Dali Museum.
Book a room at the Hampton Inn & Suites hotel in Tampa East, and see how this thriving metropolis has surprising artistic and nature-loving aspects.
