The room was adequate, the price was better than I expected. Great location. Pool, bar, business center, free wifi, free parking, complimentary lemon water in lobby. Bellhop available as well. A plus! A great place to stay. Definitely suggest The Barrymore, and I will stay here again.

The Housekeepers are extremely friendly and very helpful. While I stayed there Octavia cleaned my room a few times I was perfectly satisfied with the service. The beds are super comfortable and the pillows are AMAZING.

The house keeping staff here is great. They are all very friendly and help you when you need it! I live here as a student from UT, and so its great to get to know all the house keeping staff. My childhood stuffed animal was lost in the bedding, the head house keeper returned it to me within an hour!... More
