I had to come to Tampa for one night and chose this property. What a pleasant surprise! Nice clean room, great beds and linens. Staff was amazing and friendly. Located superbly. You won't go wrong. Also has a shuttle to get you around local spots in downtown.

The hotel itself is fine. My room was clean and spacious. I did have one scare when the bathroom mirror fell off the wall in the middle of the night. (It didn't break, so it wasn't much of a problem.) My big complaint is with the restaurant. I arrived around 10:30pm and went straight to the restaurant before heading up... More

Donna and Diane cleaned the room with a smile on their face and made sure I was pleased with their services. They changed my sheets, cleaned and mopped the bathroom, threw out the trash, and vacuumed. Two thumbs up!

The staff seems helpful, but not at all had the mannerism of a 3+ star hotel. Not at all. Including (especially) the restaurant (if you can call it the depressing looking joint a restaurant). Oh and no room service, not even a menu in the room. No way of getting the much needed water for the family. There is no... More

Good location and our room was okay. Others in our group had problems with no wifi in their room, but ours worked well (Room 1231). I didn't notice a large number of students, but geez our hallway was noisy all night long. Someone was even singing in the hallway. I was too tired after a long day of travel to... More

I recently spent four nights at the Barrymore while I was attending a conference downtown. Overall, I was pleased with the room and service I received at the hotel. Everyone I met was friendly and helpful. The hotel is a few blocks from downtown, but there is a complimentary shuttle that will take guests anywhere within two miles of the... More

The staff was amazing! Really enjoyed all the drivers that drive the shuttle especially Karen. Did not like the fact they have 3 or 4 nice shuttles and do not provide shuttle to the airport which is about a 15 min trip. We had to pay 25.00 for a cab. The hotel was clean and is a very nice location.... More

Ms. Diane and Ms. Kim have been taking care of me and my room. The bathrooms are spot clean, the beds are made, the trash is always taken out and the floor is vacuumed. These two ladies have done a wonderful job keeping the room tidy and looking great. Their service is 5 stars.
