“St. Pattys Weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Another fine weekend staying at the Hampton. Easy to get to and everything is right on 7th street. This is a great location and the staff is great. This is the second time I've stayed there this year for parades. Will certainly be back next year.

The staff is excellent and friendly. The place is really clean. I had reservations at another hotel and ended up unable to stay there. I was giving this hotel from the hospital patient services. The shuttle service was great and a huge savings. The shuttle drivers were very prompt & kind. The breakfast was good and the woman overseeing breakfast was sweet & more than helpful. All though this hotel was further than some others, I'm glad I stayed here. Very Good Job!

We only stayed one night here, but had an excellent experience. The location was extremely convenient to the restaurants, bars, and shops along 7th Ave. We walked to dinner at the Columbia Restaurant (also a great choice in Ybor City!), stopping for a drink at a bar on the way. Everyone at the hotel - from front desk, to housekeeping, to breakfast buffet staff - was extremely friendly and clearly focused on providing authentic customer service. Room and hotel were clean and quiet, and the beds were exceptionally comfortable. We will definitely return to this hotel if/when our travels bring us back to Tampa.

The beds were very comfy...I travel a lot and sleep is important when I get it! The location was perfect and the staff was very nice. I was in Ybor for a business trip so we had the luxury of using one of the two conference rooms. Lunch was delivered at noon and the staff was so friendly while setting it up. Our drinks were constantly replenished. Honestly, a great stay for a personal or business trip.

We arrived and was impressed by Brittany who checked us in. She was warm, genuine and had her full attention on us. I am leary of older hotels in older cities and expected a tired run down place. Not so! We loved the room, (King bed suite with whirlpool) and every thing every where was very clean. We met a couple who were staying prior to going on a cruise. They told us they always stay at this Hampton when they cruise because of the service. We experienced the same~ every employee we encountered was very friendly and accomodating. The management should be very proud of their staff! My only complaint: Christmas is over, so replace the arrangement in the front lobby! Lol!

Room Tip: King suite with whirlpool!!!!!!

We stayed a night as a place to crash after a concert at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. We thought it would be nice to enjoy Ybor City post-concert, rather than staying at the hotels at Channelside. If you are not familiar with Ybor City, it does make some uncomfortable with the appearance of a "bad neighborhood." I've been many times and never had a problem. There is a lot of interesting history here and great nightlife.

The Hampton is clean, staff very friendly, and the breakfast was rather good for a budget motel. Our room, a King suite, was quite large, with two huge windows overlooking the trolly station. The room had a mini-kitchen area, a microwave and refrigerator. The only issue we had, which was minor, was a full parking lot upon our late return from the concert. The hotel was full, and there just were not enough parking spaces. There is plenty of street parking in the area, so no worries - just don't leave valuables in the car. Parking fee for this hotel is $8 - more than reasonable for the area. If you are attending a concert or sports event at the Forum, you do need to drive - it's too far to walk. The nightlife of Ybor City is walking distance however.

Room Tip: Our room 306 had two oversized windows making it very bright and enjoyable.

Coming to FL for a cruise with 2,000 close friends (Buckeye Cruise for Cancer) my husband & I came to town 2 days early. We decided to stay close to the Port of Tampa and have never had time to experience YBor City. After researching, yes using Tripadvisor, we settled on the Hampton Inn & Suites/YBor City/Downtown. We we first saw it we were concerned, the location and key carded locked doors surprised us..After checking in, saw the room and headed up town all our concerned quickly vanished. The area has a feel I'm sure of what Cuba would if they had a tourism area we could visit. The shops, people and food was very inviting and fun. When we returned to the hotel, it was very clean, quite, nice workout room, clean pool area and "Miss KIm" at the breakfast area was a treat! We would stay there again any time...

Room Tip: Close to the elevators is the ice machine, otherwise it's a long walk, but it's excersize..
