    Spent the weekend at the Barrymore Hotel to visit the convention center fo Comicon. We were greeted at the front desk by the friendliest staff ever!! The room was pretty good for the price and the location was excellent for our needs. The free shuttle service was a great service they offer, they will pick you up and drop you... 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

    This is our first time in Tampa. The hotel staff was very welcoming, and let us check in very early (11:00 AM). The lobby is very modern and clean. Below are the pros and cons: CONS: When we arrived at our room, the seal on the window started leaking because of the rain. The front desk sent a maintenance person... More

    I knew the Barrymore wasn't the newest hotel in Tampa, but being on the river at a great price I wanted to give it a try. Greeted on arrival with no problems checking in - and free parking. I prepaid via TripAdvisor for $85 out the door! As suggested I asked for a river view above the 4th floor. We... More

    The staff is willing to accommodate all of your needs. The shuttle service provided by the hotel makes enjoying the area a lot easier! We were on the 14th floor and it was sooooo peaceful. The artwork in the lobby area was beautiful.

    Went to visit GF in Tampa, and picked this location for its close proximity to many great places such as Ulele. Also was excited that this place has a gym.

    I stayed here while attending Jeopardy auditions. Unfortunately I didn't get to see much of Tampa while I was there because of terrible weather that went well beyond simple rain, but the hotel was a comfortable refuge. All the art around was nice as well. I took a photo of the sculpture outside during the thirty seconds it wasn't raining,... More

    Unfortunately, rather than booking a great deal, we booked what we paid for. From a drunk man puking in the elevator to the front desk clerk putting us in the wrong room twice, this hotel will not be one that we will be staying at again. Not the hotels fault, but construction is going on all around the hotel, and... More

    Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately substandard service combined with other ambient circumstances made for a negative experience. I would feel the same way you do, and for this I'm personally sorry. The entire team feels badly that we let you down, and we hope you'll forgive us this experience in time. More

    Old Howard Johnson's converted to the Barrymore. Stay at Marriott Courtyard down the street! This hotel is dirty and sad. Gross floors and dirty bathrooms. Lobby is nicest part of the whole place. Close to Straz Center.

    The property was in a great location and had good wifi, but everything else was not what I expected. The room quality was not good it was dusty, the bed linens had stains and rips in them.
