Visited weekend of June 19th. Older hotel. Very clean. Rooms have been upgraded, hallways and common areas (not the lobby) haven't been updated recently. Lobby is very modern decor. Close to downtown Tampa area. Staff was incredibly helpful with directions, advice, and attentiveness.

My husband and I stayed at The Barrymore Hotel in Tampa while our daughter was in Tampa General Hospital. The hotel was very accommodating and professional. The shuttle service was also excellent.

I had a wonderful experience at The Barrymore Hotel in Tampa,but what made my experience the most pleasant was one particular shuttle driver named Eva. Eva was awesome, she always had a smile on her face and a positive attitude.Eva knew the city of Tampa well,she exemplifies the meaning of great customer service. She is an asset to your company!

I don't know where to begin with this hotel. As soon as you walk into the lobby you're welcomed by beautiful abstract pieces all over the wall, and a staff more than ready to help you.

We stayed at the Barrymore after attending an event and concert at Curtis Hixon Park. The hotel is in such a fantastic location right on the bank of the Hillsborough River and also on the new Tampa Riverwalk. It is located within walking distance to many pubs and museums. The hotel also offers a shuttle that will take you up... More

We stayed at the Barrymore for one night for an event at the Straz. The hotel, while being a bit older, is a great find. It's location is fantastic---close to the Riverwalk, the Straz, Amelie arena, the museums, and lots of fun places to eat and drink downtown. They offer complimentary shuttle to places within the area which covers MANY... More

Our first room the door keys refused to work. We were given another room which, after several frustrating tries, the key finally worked (this happened every time we needed to enter the room during our visit). Upon entering the room, the soap in the bathroom was unwrapped and used. Next we found a two-foot long strand of hair in one... More

This was the best hotel to stay at! It had a shuttle that would drop you off and pick you up at the convention center, which was a huge plus for me staying there. It was a close enough walk that if the shuttles stopped running for the night, I could walk back from the convention. There was no refrigerator... More

Stayed at this location twice April 2014 and March 2015 to see NHL hockey at the nearby Amalie Arena (previously St Pete Times Forum). In 2014 the hotel was a Howard Johnson hotel which has now been rebranded. On both occasions there were no problems whatsoever encountered. Massive room on the first visit, slightly smaller on the second. Well located... More
