Those are the exact words I told a group of people who had made their reservation at this hotel months ago, all paid for and got stranded on the curb, scrambling on their phones to try to find a solution. We stayed five nights. Every single day, all day long, we'd see dozens (yes, plural) of people in that situation,... More

Our group recently stayed at the Barrymore and were stuck there when there was a cruise fiasco. The ladies at the front desk, wait and cleaning staff to the shuttle drivers were wonderful. They couldn't have been more gracious and helpful for a group of unhappy travelers. The hotel is also located at a prime location, River Walk, port, Ybor... More

OMGosh..............a perfectly fine hotel right next to the Tampa Theater on Riverwalk!! And the price was actually affordable IN SEASON!!! WOW!! Three employees stand out as remarkable for making our stay most agreeable. It was the day that everyone exited after the Gasparilla Extravaganza so they were in a mad rush to get rooms clean and ready for incoming guests.... More

We stayed for 8 nights and from the very beginning were off to a bad start. We were told that we would have a complementary shuttle service from the airport, but no! Still had to pay an unexpected $20 for that. Then we walked to walmart and called for a shuttle (within the 2mi radius) to pick us up. They... More

I was some what worried about this place prior to arrival but the price was right. This had been a Howard Johnston and the transition seems to still be ongoing. Check in took forever as there was a huge line which moved very slow. However, upon reaching check in desk I was assisted by Cynthia,who should have been pulling out... More

Stayed here for business (Florida Bar) in February 2015. The hotel was at full capacity. Parking is free, however we were told that due to the hotel's full capacity parking was not guaranteed. We found parking. We were on the seventh floor. There were people yelling on the floor, but we didn't hear them in our room. The room itself... More

We recently stayed at the Barrymore for the Gasparilla Ultra Marathon. I have to admit after reading some of the reviews I was regretful I booked this hotel. Thankfully I was pleasantly surprised by our experience. The rooms are a bit dated but pleasant and clean. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The only bad thing I can say... More

I booked a room here for the Florida bar in February 2015. Everything was sub par from the very beginning. When I checked in the receptionist was short with me and clearly preoccupied. During my first night there was a wedding reception going on downstairs (a Monday night?!), which kept me up until past midnight. I called the front desk... More

Stayed here for the Gasparilla Distance Classic. Got in after 8p and really wanted to eat in hotel. The restaurant is minimalistic but fun. Has a full bar. The food was really really good. We were surprised. Menu has a Reuben that is awesome. Homemade fries that were VERY tasty. A couple of us had the tuna steak evening special... More
