I have now stayed at this hotel twice and never again will I do it. Both times I booked this hotel I had problems, and the answers that have been given to me by the front desk were just not a perfect example of customer service. First time I went into the shower just to find blood and boogers on...

The Barrymore is located in downtown Tampa near the River Walk and Straz Performing Arts Center. You can easily walk to any number of interesting eateries and shops. The front desk staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a free shuttle service which operates in a 2 mile radius. We made use of the shuttle several times and the...

The room was great. The bed was comfortable. I believe it was a Queen size bed. The room had a microwave, refrigerator, a real flat screen TV. Carl in housekeeping was very caring and bent over backwards to make our stay more comfortable. The front desk staff were great and helpful. there is free shuttle that the hotel runs within...

Friends and I booked rooms at the Barrymore for a short trip to Tampa. It was on the lower end of the price range, but we've stayed in cheap hotels around Tampa and have always had good experiences. The Barrymore gets a star for location and ease of check in. What it's not receiving stars for is cleanliness, the staff,...

Rooms big, all you need really. But twice in five days they didn't service my room. I was out all day and to come back at 5pm and see an unserviced room was a little annoying. Ice machine on my floor didn't work the whole five days. Nor did one of the elevators. So it was annoying having to go...

I was working on the Gasparilla Music Festival & stayed for a week. The staff was wonderful! They were always courteous and pleasant and we're quick to help when assistance was requested. Nice restaurant, room seemed a little small but had everything needed for my stay.

The hotel was nice enough, as well as the staff. The bed was clean and the room smelled great. I've never stayed in an independently owned hotel before, but I was impressed. The only thing that took me aback was the amount of body hair in the shower. It appeared to be short black hair from the anatomy of a...

Chose The Barrymore due to close proximity to cruise terminals and somewhat reasonable price. It's a $25 cab ride from airport. Front Desk folks were great. Efficient, personable and helpful with questions regarding restaurants, directions, etc. Hotel is dated but comfortable. Looking at other's reviews was concerned about having breakfast in the dining area. Breakfast was great. Great service, quick,...
