My family and I arrived very late to spend the night before a Caribbean cruise. The check in was super smooth. The room was very up to date and well maintained. The hotel has a free shuttle service to the Port of Tampa - which is a great bonus.

Stayed a couple of nights here. The location is close to the City Centre so nicely situated and right next to the Riverwalk which is a really nice walk. The rooms are old but clean and pretty decent for the price. The whole hotel could do with a refurbishment as it feels a little shabby. Also seems a little understaffed... More

It's one of the best locations and lowest priced hotels in the downtown area. The rooms are always clean, staff is friendly and the food and drink are well priced. It used to be a "Ho Jo" but you'd never know it given all of the improvements that they've made - flat screen TV's, high quality beds and sheets, nice... More

If you are a stickler this may not be for you. However, If you are going to a game or just crashing for a night or two this place is great! The Staff is a bit overworked (like the rest of us) and you're in the South so pack a little patience at the Front Desk. The Bar & Restaurant... More

Great location and easy to park. Close to everything downtown. From arrival at check in, Rita at the reception was prompt, accommodating, warm and friendly. Our 14th floor room also had an awesome view of downtown. So glad to have found the Barrymore.

The hotel is probably in one of the best spots you can stay at in Tampa. I think staying on the riverfront is the key to enjoying that area of Tampa. It's all walkable distance. All the main attractions to see are right there. Plus, in the evening the river front is fun with things going on. The hotel is... More

We had a prepaid room booked through Amex travel. The price was good for this area of Tampa, but it was for a standard room. No fridge, microwave or safety deposit box. Nevertheless the room was comfortable and quiet. The staff at reception were friendly and very helpful. I left my valuables in their safety box. They explained the complimentary... More

Loved it! I came here for a quick trip to see a Lightning Game. This was a great choice! Close to the arena, great staff, clean and fresh rooms. Waterworks restaurant was fantastic, too! Absolutely delicious!

Stayed here for 3 nights for a convention. It was expensive and not at all worth it. The rooms smelled moldy and there was rust in the bathroom. It is a good location as it is right next to the Straz and walking distance to the Convention Center. However, there are other, newer hotels close by that you should look... More
