Hilton Garden Inn Tampa Ybor Historic District
Ranked #23 of 164 Hotels in Tampa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Selected this Hilton property for its location, as had planned the weekend around exploring Ybor City and other downtown destinations.

The one negative right up front: the rooms are not well insulated, and could hear everything, and I mean everything the couple next door were doing one night.

Back to the location: this hotel is ideal for anyone exploring Ybor City, and all it has to offer with regard to dining, entertainment, a little bit of shopping, and history. It is literally two streets over from East 7th -- the main drag of Ybor's historical district.

One block over is the streetcar stop, which every 20 minutes runs from Ybor City to the Channelside district (Florida Aquarium, cruise ship port, shops, restaurants) and all the way to the convention center.

The hotel property, common spaces, and room were all immaculate, but the best part was the terrific staff. Everyone, and I mean everyone, greeted us with a smile and a willingness to serve in any manner possible. Standouts included Amber at the front desk, who was thorough in her suggestions and recommendations on dining, entertainment, and directions, and Devon, who handled a last-minute breakfast visit with a smile and great attitude.

The staff at this hotel makes such a difference. The hotel is in the heart of Ybor City, so walking to fabulous restaurants, drinking establishments, shopping and movies is a breeze. Breakfast was a definite hit! Reasonable price for all you can eat buffet! The room was comfortable and we never heard a sound from anywhere. Sad we didn't bring our swimsuits - the pool was so inviting. We'll be back!

Room Tip: I usually ask for a room away from the elevator. This building is very well built and sound proof...

Much better than a DUI on the way home. Breakfast is GREAT, rooms are wonderful, staff is very friendly. Do yourself a favor and stay here after a long night in Ybor. It's better than a mug shot and PBJ.

The standards at this HGI are pretty high for the brand as a whole. The check in staff, especially Jennifer, are exceptional. The wait staff at breakfast time did a fine job. The room itself was very spacious and very clean. A bonus is the close walking distance to the local restaurants. The fabulous Columbia restaurant is about 3 short blocks away.

The bathroom vent, I could actually see mold growing in it! Bathroom was not very clean.... Location to Ybor City was great though... Also had to pay for parking at the hotel, thought that was a rip off. The staff was curtious and friendly.

The Hilton Garden Inn Ybor had wonderful service and the location was perfect for walking around downtown. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in Ybor. We felt very safe and the onsite parking was easy.

The rooms were spacious. The pull out bed was not comfortable for one of my party. However, the room was clean. It could have smelled a little better, however. It smelled like someone had been smoking in the room. There were restaurants in walking distance. Many of the businesses do not open until 10 A.M. or later, but stay open late. Overall, this was a pleasant stay. I will definitely visit again if I am in the area. We were there overnight for a cruise. The pier is about 5 minutes away.
