My housekeeper Iesha was very kind and made the room very pleasant to stay in! Keep up the good work! Hotel amenities were excellent and my view of downtown Tampa was amazing. Will definitely recommend to a friend

Good value. Can't beat it for location to downtown Tampa and the River Walk. The River Walk runs practically through it. The Performing Arts Center is just across the street and the Convention Center is within walking distance.

I stayed here the nite before a group cruise. The room was clean--with a coffee pot/ microwave and mini fridge. They computers in the lobby for the guests to use. The pool was nice--but it was hard to figure out how to get there.

Stayed at Barrymore for its downtown location. Right on riverwalk. Staff very friendly and helpful, Easy check in and plenty of parking, decently priced, Our room was large, clean and comfortable. On site lounge with limited but OK food, good selection of local craft beers. Free Wi-Fi. Shuttle service to anywhere within two miles. Would stay there again.

This hotel is great and decently priced. The shuttle will take you anywhere within two miles of the hotel and the staff is amazingly friendly. The hotel is currently under construction, but it never bothered my stay. However, the water did take a while to heat up when I ran the water for a shower. I assumed that was part... More

Just stayed in this hotel for a couple of nights. Staff were friendly and helpful and there is parking. 3 of us in room and we got 3 sets of towels (you'd be surprised how many hotels did not give us 3 sets). I cannot comment on restaurant or pool as we did not use it. We walked to our... More

This is a really nice hotel for a great price. Their rooms are comfortable and their staff are very helpful. They offer shuttle service to nearby areas including Ybor, which is really convenient, though it's also walkable to a lot of fun things. There is also a restaurant/bar in the hotel that has great bartenders and good drinks. Highly recommended!

Located on Riverwalk and central to downtown and the Starz Entertainment Center (1 block away). This is an older hotel and has been nicely updated....very clean. You can walk to lots of downtown restaurants and then take a nice stroll by the water.
