Daycation: Day Passes to Tampa Bay Hotels with ResortPass

Check out ResortPass This Summer for Day Passes to Local Hotels

With so much to do across Tampa Bay, Orlando, and other neighboring cities, it can be hard to allot one whole week to just one place! Luckily, with ResortPass, you can visit local hotels and resorts for a day to enjoy all that they have to offer without booking an overnight stay. It’s the perfect way to plan a safe daycation this summer that’s not too far from home.

How It Works

First things first, before you can enjoy ResortPass, you must pick your desired hotel. Visit the website, search your location, and browse all of the participating hotels. Those serious about using ResortPass can subscribe to be alerted when new hotels are added to the list. Some hotels also offer passes available as monthly memberships so you can make daytime relaxation a regular part of your monthly routine.

Next, book and reserve your spot. Once you choose your hotel, be sure to select your preferred date. Options include day passes, spa passes and cabana rentals.

Finally, head over to your hotel on the selected day and check in. Then, kick back and relax and enjoy your day.
