Quiet!! In March! During Spring Break - in Tampa, FL!! Excellent mattresses for a comfortable, great sleep - even if one is very large. I can't stress the calm patience of their entire staff!! My first day, the front desk attendant (Rita) anticipated exactly what I would need and the next morning, the lobby housekeeping attendant (Yvette) helped carry my...

Stayed one night before going on our cruise. The rooms are OK, nothing fancy, but clean. It's close to the river walk, which was nice since they were having a music festival that night. We had a couple of drinks in the hotel bar and our bartender Jeff was the best! He is very enthusiastic about bartending and he knows...

I was at your Hotel on Business in January and received excellent service from Monica Purnell in food services. She went beyond expectations to accommodate myself and my team. Thank you. Sandra Goodnough

This is pretty nice hotel, but the service is excellent. Walking back in the rain, Jerry, a shuttle driver stopped to pick me up. He saved me 20 soaking minutes. Jerry is an awesome guy and takes his job really seriously.

This is the only hotel I use in Tampa. The service is consistently great and the price is reasonable. The best thing about this hotel is its people. Everyone is professional and very friendly. I always look forward to seeing them again. Jerry, the van driver, is a gem, who always extends himself. The hotel is clean, quiet and perfectly...

Quite apart from the excellent location on the new Tampa Riverwalk, in downtown Tampa, the Barrymore offers everything even the most demanding traveler could want, including fabulously comfortable beds, a spacious parking lot, a handsomely-appointed bar and restaurant and, most importantly, staff who are willing to go way out of their way to please every guest. Nothing is too much...

We stayed here for the weekend and it was a great hotel to stay. The service was excellent anything that we needed all we had to do was ask. The front desk is very helpful and informative especially for us out of towners. The hotel is in a great location within 10 or less minutes of just about anything you...

I have been staying at the Barrymore every week for the last six months because I have business in the Tampa area. The rates cant be beat and the centralized location makes it easy for me to get everywhere I need to go. Cynthia at the desk always remembers me when I arrive. She always has a positive attitude and...

We had to stay at this place in early March because the Marriott mixed up our group reservations and offered us the Barrymore for one night at Marriott expense. One of the young kids in our school group left behind an electric toothbrush charger that we then wanted the Barrymore either to locate in its lost and found or let...

We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed our stay. Check-in was a bit of a challenge but I think that was mostly Expedia's fault. Room was clean and comfortable. Food in the restaurant was good. And the shuttle service worked perfectly. Would definitely return.
