I chose the Hampton Inn Ybor City because of it's proximity to the entertainment and restaurants of Ybor City. I came down for 3 days to celebrate my birthday and a little stress relief. Taking the taxi to the hotel my first reaction was that it din't seem like a safe part of town but I guess it was just the route taken by the driver. Check in was painless and the room was clean. Not much of a view but I wasn't there to sit in the room and look out of the window. Bed was very comfortable. The true gem is that it's walking distance from all of the bars, restaurants and shops. Ybor City attracts the younger crowd so I was a little concerned about the late night partyers but I never had a problem although one couple from Canada had this experience. The complimentary breakfast was pretty standard but I'm a fruit, coffee and toast guy so you should form your own conclusions on that. The staff was friendly and accomodating. The building is very secure, needing your room key card to access the building, pool and elevator. The only reason I didn't give it an excellent rating is because of the room air conditioner which is quite loud. If you have problems sleeping, I suggest ear plugs or do as I did...have plenty of your favorite wine or cocktail. I'll definitely be back.
