I stayed at the Hampton Inn in Ybor City for a short weekend trip. Parking was a little frustrating; there just aren't enough spots in the deck. When I arrived, there was nowhere to park, even in the "15 min for check-in only" spots. Therefore, I had to park in the overflow lot and pay the $5 to park because as I was not yet checked in, I didn't have a Hotel hang tag. This however, was the only negative aspect of my stay.
I stayed in a king suite which was quite serviceable. It was very clean upon check in. The bed was comfortable, and the air conditioning functioned well. I didn't notice the mustiness that others have mentioned.
The wifi functioned well the little bit that I used it. There was no in-room safe, but I guess that's not common in hotels of this class.
There is a trolley station around the corner from the hotel, and the hotel is within an easy walk of the heart of Ybor.
I will definitely stay here the next time I visit Tampa.
