Less than 100 days from now, the College Football National Champion will be decided on Monday, January 9th at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida.
Let’s book as soon as possible in order to enjoy the best of Tampa Bay’s hotels, restaurants, nightlife and Pre-National Championship events.
For those flying in to Tampa for the first time, the Tampa International Airport is located 6 miles west of downtown and 5.4 miles from Raymond James stadium.
There are a number of hotels at and near the airport, but I would like to provide a short list of 7 of the best…all are very close to the stadium and I will throw in one that is a bit further for those that want to stay at the Casino.
- Westshore area: Intercontinental Westshore, Grand Hyatt, Tampa Bay and the Westin, Tampa Bay. All three are close to the airport and the stadium.
- Downtown and Harbour Island: the Le Meridien Downtown and the Westin, Harbour Island.
- Hyde Park: Epicurean Autograph Collection
- Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, a 20 minute drive from the airport.
