My wife & I stayed at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Ybor City this last weekend.
We were in town for a concert and had heard that Ybor City is a fun place.
First, Ybor very exciting with LOTS of dining and bar options. On a weekend night the scene is a little young for us. For a younger couple it would be great.
The Hampton was like every Hampton. Clean, a good value, and friendly. We were especially that the noise and excitement of 7th Avenue did not spill over to the Hampton. Our room was quiet and calm and exactly what we wanted.
Breakfast was free and worth every penny. Parking is skimpy and the odds are good that you may end up parked on the street.
The bottom line is that we like Hamptons and would stay at this one again. We also agreed that the next time we are in the Tampa area, we will staying on the Beach.
