Hilton tampa downtown to Tampa Bay Times forum

one of the hotels we are contemplating staying at while attending the Forum is the Hilton Tampa downtown (211 N Tampa St). it is about 1/2 mile from the Forum. How safe is this area to walk at nite? or, should we look into staying at the Embassy suites-513 S. Florida Ave (0.17 miles away) even though the price is double.

Suggestions are welcome.

If there is a group of you, you should be fine. I believe the trolley line has extended to near that hotel also if you wanted to take that. Embassy suites and Marriott Waterside are both closer.

Usually after an event at the Forum there'll be plenty of people walking around and I doubt you'll be the only ones heading for that hotel and the other nearby hotels.

It is located in what I would call the "business district" downtown, so it is usually pretty empty unless there is an event at the forum, but it isn't located in a "bad" part of town so you should feel comfortable walking around at night
