The Barrymore is a perfect spot for a short stay, or before and after a cruise from Tampa. The service was great, and the front desk goes out of the way to help. Special thanks to all the ladies working there! There is excellent, friendly shuttle service for all around town and the hotel is walking distance either through town... More

One of the less expensive hotels in downtown Tampa. We booked here for our granddaughters's volleyball tournament. Turned out to be a mile away from the Tampa Convention Center. Rooms were adequate and staff pleasant enough. But parking was terrible. They have their own lot which is wholly inadequate when the hotel is full. We came back later on Saturday... More

It's a 3 star hotel with 5 star customer service. I will be back when I come to Tampa. Front desk was great, fast and easy check in and I was provided a map and some recommendations for dinner which turned out to be spot on. Housekeeping was just right! We left for breakfast one morning and as we came... More

2nd time stay at what's now called the Barrymore for the Frozen Four---this is the only reasonably priced hotel in the downtown area that's walkable to Amelie Arena---its about 1 mile---this is an older place without many amenities---didn't sample the restaurant or pool but everything was clean and plenty of hot water

Ok location, clean rooms and simply a nice hotel. A bit expensive comparing what you get but wouldn't mind staying here again. Although we did get some allergic reactions because of the chlorine in the water/shower but I don't think that the hotels fault.

Excellent hotel with very attentive staff, updated rooms, and great restaurant. They also have a package that allows you to park your car there for the duration of your cruise. They offer free transportation to the port as well.

Although the hotel is older, it was clean, beds were very comfortable, no hd on tv was a slight disappointment. The wifi was okay but not very fast, but those were the only slightly negatives. Great shower, quiet, slept well. The entire staff is very outgoing and helpful, especially housekeeping, lovely people who always asked how we were and enjoying... More

Stayed here for two nights prior to going on a cruise. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Free shuttle to destinations within two miles was great, used it to Ybor City and cruise terminal. Nice location beside the riverwalk. Smooth check in, no difficulties, pleasant staff. Free wi-fi. Good value, would stay here again.

Loved this hotel, the staff, the room, the location, the free shuttle to destinations within two miles.. The Waterworks Grill on site was an added bonus! Great food, great craft beers and if you can get K.P. for your server, it's a bonus! Would definitely stay there again!
