Our son and brand new daughter-in-law wisely chose this property as their 'one stop' 'all inclusive' wedding spot. The building itself is elegant and classy, decorated with some of the most beautiful chandeliers and lighting fixtures I have ever seen. The individual rooms were large, most with balconies that you entered by double French doors from your room. They had... More

Just stayed there one night as all of the "name" hotels in Tampa were completely booked up. Took a risk and stayed here - great people at front desk and throughout hotel - room was beautiful - the neighborhood was great - so much better than staying in downtown Tampa.

We stopped at this beautiful inn during a tour of Ybor City. This old inn is beautifully maintained and the best kept secret in Tampa. If you enjoy historical buildings, this inn would be a delightful place to stay. It is beautifully kept with period furnishings which would be a real treat - it is absolutely magnificent. The inn only... More

Having seen this Inn on The Dead Files, we booked the spooky room 305. We conducted... More

We stayed at the inn for a one night trip to Ybor City. The inn is very quaint and very comfortable but the best part was the welcoming staff and owners. We had the great fortune of having a complete history of the inn from the owner Jack who loves the place and truly lives the philosophy of the guests... More

We booked the DVI based on all of the good reviews here, and it was a terrible mistake. If you like historic and rustic, and don't mind thin walls, this is the place for you. Pros: location - in the heart of Ybor City (aka Gaybor) free wifi (don't forget to ask for the user ID and password when you... More

Arrived late evening, receptionist was very helpful, with booking a restaurant. Rooms beautiful, and beds and linens good. Some noise during night, as hotel is central to city, and guests next door came in at 2.00 and talking loudly for 20 mins. When we arrived for breakfast an hour before it finished was surprised that there was no bread of... More

A really great location, friendly staff and a warm welcome. The room was well presented with a fantastic big bed. It can be hard to find hotels with true character but Don Vicente certainly has plenty of it.
