“Not To Miss In Tampa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Old Tampa Bay Hotel is not to be missed when visitingTampa as the Minarets are exquisite to see both day and night. One cannot come to Tampa and not see this land mark. The Museum is housed in this famous old building now part of the University of Tampa

“Great place to spend a few hours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Excellent place to spend a few hours. This is a late 19th century hotel in Tampa. It is a very interesting and beautiful place to spend a few hours. In downtown Tampa part of a college campus. After your done drive a mile and spend a few more hours in Ybor city.

“This Place has History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

This Place has history. It's located in the University of Tampa. It is close to everything just outside of downtown. Free education. Nice day out.

“Their is nothing like this old place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Really worth the detour to see this remarkable place. It is the main building of the University of Tampa and the administration seems to take pride in its preservation and appearance. Well worth the visit to walk the halls, check out the museum and its history.

“Beautiful, historic furnished hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Hotel from the 1800s. Free parking. 10$ to get in, 7$ with a student ID. Free audio tour with purchase of ticket. Wasn't as big as I expected because the rest is portioned off and part of the college campus. Beautiful area and beautiful architecture
