5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I had to dorm here as a first year college student during the fall and I absolutely loved it. The staff is especially friendly, most specifically housekeeping. One particular housekeeper, Kennethea Davis, was very helpful and very nice and she provided substantial assistance! I will definitely be staying here in the future and bringing my family along as well.

Kennethia Davis was our housekeeping assistant. She was extremely helpful and made our stay here that much more relaxing. The Barrymore staff overall are very helpful and can give you the perfect locations to find lesser known attractions and restaurants that are bound to make you want to come back for more. Thank you to the Barrymore I'll be back... More

The room was definitely clean upon appearance. There was a small leak in the window and a few ants, but it was all taken care of by housekeeping very quickly. Other than that, the room was perfectly fine. We were in town meeting friends, and they met us at Ulele for a great meal. It was a great recommendation from... More

This hotel is in a perfect location! The front desk staff and chauffeurs are very friendly.The rooms are nice and clean. Look at it's locale with reference to all Tampa's cultural life, for example, sports, concerts and museums. This is a 4 star hotel with a 3 star price.

We spent 3 nights at the Barrymore Hotel and the staff was very helpful with providing recommendations for sightseeing, dining, and whatever else we needed. The rooms were quiet and very comfortable. Interstate access is close and the hotel is approximately 20 minutes from Busch Gardens and 15 minutes from the N.Y. Yankees baseball facility and Raymond James Stadium. We... More

Although I only stayed here for one night and most of it was spent enjoying Tampa, there were several great aspects about this hotel. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was large enough and clean. The hotel bar was very reasonably priced and the bartenders were sociable and friendly as well. I would stay here... More

Husband and I stayed at the Barrymore before embarking on a cruise out of Tampa. The hotel staff was nice and the room was clean. They even had a free shuttle to take us to the port. The reason I gave 3 stars was because they didn't have any free breakfast available. That's my fault for not reading the description... More
