went to Tampa for one night and chose the Barrymore. After checking in went to the "Water Works" for a light snack and a drink. The service was terrible (and slow) and the liquor selection was limited. I got up the next morning and went to shower and there was now hot water so I called the front desk. I...

This hotel is located in Riverwalk, downtown Tampa area, very near to the Convention Center and Amallie arena. So, locaton wise it is great. But the hotel itself feels outdated, and in need of renovation. The room, although nicely equipped, looks rather old. Cleanliness can be improved, our be sheets were dirty with some indication of prior usage without getting...

If you are looking for a nice hotel then don't stop here. The hotel is clean but it is outdated. When you pull up the property is not well lit and will make you be cautious. The lobby is not bad and the front employees are very helpful. I like that they always had fruit infused water ready no matter...

My husband and I recently visited Tampa for the BCS National Championship game and stayed here. We arrived early for our reservation but they were able to get us a room immediately since I was sick from our flight and needed to lay down immediately. We had a nice room with two queen beds and a lovely view of downtown...

I stayed here for 3 days and it was more than enough time spent in Tampa; the best thing this hotel provides is its exceptional shuttle service. Even if the city itself is an easy riverfront walk down, the shuttle drivers were courteous and helpful - taking me to the nearest Publix, to the bus station for access to Busch...

The location is good. They offer 3 vans to bounce you around town which is great. The pool is highly inaccessible,especially if you cannot handle stairs (1 1/2 flights). The wifi is HORRIBLE and continually disconnects you. Parking is adequate. Room itself is decent, nothing great but a nice size fridge which I always appreciate.

Nothing elaborate, but all the necessities you would need at a good value compared to some of the other "name" hotels in downtown Tampa. Great views of the skyline and river (at least from our 12th-floor room). Clean rooms, friendly staff and convenient to Channelside, Ybor City, arena, convention center, etc., especially utilizing the complimentary shuttle service, which was fast...
