In Tampa, it’s Business on the Beach Like Never Before, at the Newly Renovated Sailport Waterfront Suites

TAMPA (December 2009) – For business travelers deserving a “sand between the toes” Florida experience when the work day is done, know there’s an Tampa Bay lodging option that’s ideal for travelers seeking amenities conducive to working away from home, as well as providing a relaxed atmosphere once they’re off the clock: Sailport Waterfront Suites ( A market leader since it opened as one of Tampa’s first all-suites hotels in 1979, Sailport is also Tampa’s only all-suites property with its own white sand beach featuring free WiFi laptop access, along with waters edge views providing spectacular Gulf Coast sunset vistas from every unit. Better still, for budget-minded road warriors, its fully equipped suites rates are easily as affordable as those of a single hotel room.

Besides offering great year round accommodations for leisure and extended stay business travelers who prefer the added square footage found in an all suites hotel, Sailport’s new multimillion-dollar renovation has added another draw: an expanded sand recreation area, which includes sand volleyball court, tetherball, a horseshoe pit, and ring games area; while Adirondack chairs, tiki umbrellas and BBQ grills provide the perfect setting to relax and enjoy a sunset meal. Recreation truly abounds here, as the property also sports a fishing pier, large heated pool, white sand sunning beach and The Sunset Deck, perfect for larger social gatherings with newfound friends.

Conveniently located on desirable Rocky Point Island, near Tampa International Airport and the Westshore Business District, new one-bedroom “Business Suites” featuring office workspace and ergonomic amenities are perfect for traveling executives. As with all of Sailport Waterfront Suites’ units, they feature well-appointed living, kitchen and dining areas that easily facilitate Meeting, Retreat, Corporate Housing or Extended Stay needs. Besides the Business Suites, one bedroom and 2-bedroom/2-bath suites along with “Family Suites” featuring bunk beds for small children, round out the available accommodations.

Renovations just completed also include the addition of flat screen televisions in select units, luxury beds and bedding, modern cabinetry and appliances, new furnishings, tile flooring and bright textured walls. Plus corridors have been splashed with new color and seating vignettes are now sprinkled throughout. Another enhancement of particular benefit to business travelers is the free high-speed wireless Internet access in all rooms and throughout the property’s public areas and grounds.
