Octavia made our experience amazing! She was very warm and welcoming from the moment we arrived. The room was very clean and well kept. Thank you Octavia for treating us like royalty! We will definitely stay here again. Short walk to great dining and wonderful views of the Riverwalk.

Dear "73matthewm," Good afternoon and greetings from the Barrymore Hotel Tampa Riverwalk! Thank you so very much for your recent patronage and glowing feedback, particularly regarding Octavia. She definitely has that knack about her and treats all of her guests "like royalty!" Your sentiments will be shared with her as well as each of our other team members. It takes a complete team effort to deliver that "great experience." Hopefully my team and I will have the opportunity to host you again in the relatively near future... Best regards, Odyssey Leach General Manager

Hotel's Favorite
We needed to stay in Tampa one night at the end of a short trip that mixed business with some time at the beach south of here. I highly recommend this property. Unfortunately everyone is dealing with the virus restrictions or I am sure that it would have been even better. The restaurant is closed for now so no in-house meals available. Front desk staff friendly and accommodating. Room in great condition and clean. All furnishings were up to date and in good condition. Very comfortable beds with good pillow options. We were upgraded on our room without asking. Refrigerator and coffee maker in room. Plenty of space. Bathroom modern and very clean. All of this for $98 dollars at the AAA rate. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

I was in Florida for my honeymoon at the end of June. It was towards the end of our honeymoon when we decided to go to Tampa. My daughter was with her dad visiting so i decided to go and pick her up and bring her to Tampa for the last few days. I reviewed hotels over and over until i finally chose the Barrymore hotel. I wanted something special for all of us and thought this would be perfect. I was so disappointed in my stay. Once we got checked in and up to our room we noticed a horrible smell to our room. I called down to front desk and due to covid if we had a complaint we would have to switch rooms all together. I had just got everything into the room and decided i would find the smell. I found it in the bottom of the trash can. I asked for a new trash can two times and never was given one. The pool was discussing and the water smelled. Hallways and elevators were dirty and did not look as they had been cleaned in a long time. I understand that it was during the Covid pandemic but the hotel was dirty from the lobby to the rooms. I ended up leaving after day 2 and just going back home to Illinois. Our room stunk, the shower leaked and there was a lot of traffic on our floor in all hours of the night. The restaurants were closed which was not a big deal. The little snack shop that was suppose to have snacks and light meals had some water an apple and some string cheese. It was nothing as seen through the reviews and the website other then the river view at night. It was just the final layer of a horrible experience. Thankfully it was the end of the honeymoon and not the beginning. After looking at the most recent reviews i sure do wish that it would of been even a fraction as nice as they are all saying.

Dearest "victoriarL9581ZI," Greetings and good evening from the Barrymore Hotel Tampa Riverwalk. Much gratitude to you for your recent patronage and subsequent commentary. It is truly disappointing that we failed to meet your expectations on so many levels, particularly at such an incredibly special time as your honeymoon, in spite of the overwhelming concerns related to the virus pandemic. My humblest personal apologies as leader of this team. I assure you that your experience was indeed the exception to the consistently positive experiences that have been shared and expressed over time. For that failure, each of your comments will be shared with our operations' team with the desired end result of an action plan developed to immediately prevent any future guest(s) from having a similar experience. Hopefully, and in due time, you'll allow us a second opportunity to validate the success of that plan. Should that opportunity not present itself, we thank you again for your patronage and wish you the absolute very best in your future travels... Warmest regards, Odyssey Leach General Manager The Barrymore Hotel Tampa Riverwalk Email Address: gm@barrymorehotel.com Telephone: (813)-223-1351 Ext. 11000

I had a wonderful experience working with Salina Lourenco for our June event. The hotel ballroom was a perfect fit for us. My staff and I enjoyed the excellent attention to detail and the customer service that was provided. We will gladly be back for another event in the near future.

Greetings! Good evening from the beautiful Barrymore Hotel Tampa Riverwalk! Thank you so very much for the wonderful commentary highlighting your event held in our recently enhanced ballroom. It was an honor hosting your team as well as featured guests. Indeed, Salina is amazing to work with as noted by numerous planners over the years!

I will share your thoughts with her as well as all other members of my team. It would be an honor and our absolute pleasure to host any special event in the relatively near future for your firm or any other colleagues in the profession...
