“wonderful experience...great staff & rooms!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

New lobby with a bar, great breakfast service and a staff eager to accomodate. We were first assigned a room right beside the elevator which was annoying every time it moved. Asked to be moved to another room and there was no hesitation to do so. Our stay was delightful and the hotel makes travel to most areas of Tampa easy. Would definitely stay again!!

Room Tip: Make sure you are not near the elevator

In Tampa for a conference, great location in Ybor City for fun and dining. Great place to people watch. Although the hotel was under renovations, the staff did their best to make their guests comfortable. Room size is on a larger size, especially if you get the room with the King. Will stay there again next year. I've stayed here a least 7 times in the last several years.

I've stayed at this Hotel several times in the past few years, most recently a week ago. I was truly dismayed to see the lobby under construction, as I was not informed of this when I booked the hotel 3 months earlier. The good news is that the construction was almost finished when I checked out. It is convenient to Ybor attractions of course, but the shuttle will take you downtown or the Cruise terminals when needed, but not the airport. I also enjoy taking the trolley downtown which the Ybor stop is only 1 block away. I've even taken the trolley to its termination downtown and walked 2 blocks to Kennedy Blvd. and taken the # 30 bus to the Airport. No problem!

Wes, the day manager and his staff are very helpful, friendly and work hard to make your stay enjoyable and trouble free. The rooms are clean and well appointed, though not brand new, still in fine shape. I will surely stay at the Hilton Garden Inn next time I'm in the Tampa/Ybor area.

The location, a stone-throw from the legendary James Joyce Irish Pub in the heart of Tampa's wonderful Ybor City district, is reason enough to stay at this hotel. But my stay was compromised dramatically by construction on the lobby, meaning that check-in was through a back door in a dank little room. Worse, there is no shuttle and cab service is so horrible in Tampa that I waited a full hour for a cab to get to the airport and very nearly missed my plane. There is no excuse for this hotel, which is close to the airport, to not have a shuttle. I'd say it's worth staying there, but keep your expectations in check where amenities are concerned.

We truly enjoyed our experience here. WE were close to the Ybor shopping district. There were a lot of shops and dining opportunities, as well as an open air market, all winthin a short walking distance. The breakfast buffet was great, with fresh made to order omeletes, waffles, etc, he sraff was very friendly, and the free shuttle ato the port was a nice bonus. The shuttle driver was friendly and courteous as well. Only down side...the lobby was being painted and remodeled, so we had to enter and exit a side door that was not well marked for our taxi driver. w
We will definitely go back again, and recommend to others.

We chose this hotel for its location and it was perfect. The staff were friendly and explained the temporary reception due to refurbishment and as compensation they were offering a free breakfast to their guests. An unexpected surprise!

The hotel is easy walking distance to all the sights, clubs, restaurants of Ybor City and there's plenty of on site parking which at €7 per day I thought really reasonable.

The room wasn't massive but tastefully furnished and you could adjust the hardness of the bed which I found made no difference but was really comfortable anyway. Despite being central it was in a quiet location.

The (free) breakfast was very good and all the staff friendly and helpful. We were very happy with our stay.
