We booked The Barrymore last minute for a concert at Amalie Arena. The hotel was a great surprise. Octavia at check in was an absolute joy from the moment we arrived. She was super friendly and helpful. She made sure to put us on a floor with no renovations so we wouldn't have the noise to deal with. She also...

We stayed at the Barrymore before our cruise and it was perfect for our needs. Getting there from the airport was easy, it cost $21.50 plus a tip. I should qualify this with there was no traffic whatsoever. Check-in was super quick, they even let us check in before noon which was nice. If you're expecting the Ritz, you may...

I stayed one night with friends to attend a concert at the amalie arena. The hotel provided a shuttle to the event free of charge so that was great! The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was very pretty especially the shower. Parking does cost $10 a night, but most in the area do and this was...

My wife and I checked in, at the last minute (via Trivago/Hotels.com) , expecting to stay a night. As it turned out, the room the price, and the staff were so good that we decided to make it another day before we had to head home to St Augustine. I can't overemphasize how nice these people are - always a...

Sorry to be so late entering this. We (about 30 people) were booked here for the Shriner's Convention in July 2016. This hotel was a bit of a "misunderstanding". Hot water was "hit or miss", depending in part on room location on the floor Elevators were REALLY SLOW One couple bailed out of there after the THIRD room they were...

The Barrymore Hotel is excellent value. Clean rooms and beds. Nice pool with loungers. Great restaurant for breakfast. Staff all friendly. Free Shuttle buses to cruise terminal from hotel and also to attractions within 2 miles of hotel. This hotel is ideal for the price when staying one or two nights before departing on a cruise.

Enjoyed the stay. Rooms were nice. Bathrooms were above average. Bar/ restaurant left much to be desired. Limited menu of bland food. Nice lobby if bar isn't open. Slow elevators. Awsome shuttle will take you anywhere within 2 miles. Rooms were undergoing renovations so there was a bit of noise every morning, but the end results will be those nice...

Not very clean and old- charged my card $161 by accident event though I pre-paid my room and told me it would be 7-10 business days for my refund. When I asked why my card was charged- they said, "I don't know, sorry about that". Not very happy about it.
