“Great for Convention”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

Stayed a week for a convention in late March. Very convienent to shopping, restaurants, and bars. The shuttle that goes in a 5 mile radius saved me quite a few dollars. Thanks to everyone there for your help!

The room was perfect, cleaned everyday, and toiletries replenished. Breakfast in the morning was tasty. Not too mention 24/7 coffee. If you are in the area and don't want to spend downtown prices stay here!

Shuttle to the cruise terminal, breakfast, and it's clean! These are the main selling points. We stayed 1 night prior to a cruise. It was perfect for that. There is a pretty good on-site free breakfast. The hotel is what you would expect of your standard Hampton Inn. The pool is nothing great. There is a nearby trolly car that is pretty cool and worth checking out. When opting to use the shuttle to the cruise terminal, book early to get your desired time. They start taking reservations for times at 7 am on the day of the cruise. It is in what I would describe as an area that is up and coming and being redeveloped. There are restaurants and bars nearby that provide enough to do on the night before a cruise. If you drove to the hotel for a cruise, ask about leaving your car at the Hampton Inn during the cruise and paying for parking. That worked well for someone in our group.

We stayed at the Ybor City Hampton Inn on a recent visit to Florida. Friends in state had a family issue at the last minute forcing us to alter our plans. We planned to stay at the Hampton Inn but had to make changes to our schedule on the fly. No problem for the reservation clerk at Hampton Inn as one reservation had to be canceled and remade. All went smoothly! The front desk personnel were friendly and again helped us make changes to our schedule. Very quiet, comfortable, large parking garage and just on the edge of Ybor. We will spend two or three nights here in 2013 when we visit again.

Room Tip: Find out at the front desk if there are large youth groups staying in the hotel. We enjoyed being a...

When coming into town, I had a little feeling we had picked the wrong area. Was I wrong!!! Hotel area was so much fun. The hotel staff was wonderful from the morning to the afternoon to the evening...excellent all the way around! The shuttle brought us to the ship in the morning..earlier than we had signed up for. Rooms were super comfy and the breakfast they offer was just right! If you're going out on a cruise ship (which are in sight), STAY HERE! You're about to have a wonderful time.

We just returned from a one-night stay here for a wedding. From first appearances, one might not think it would be the best place to stay, as it is in a somewhat run-down part of Tampa. However, if you want to stay in Ybor or near the cruise port or Channelside, it is an excellent location and a great hotel. We were within walking distance to the center of Ybor and within a very short driving distance to the Tampa Aquarium, cruise port (which we didn't need this stay, but is good to know), and Channelside.

The actual hotel is older, but still in good condition. I felt very secure as we needed the room key to use the elevator, get in the side entrance, use the pool, etc. Our room was in great condition, had a very clean smell to it, and was relatively spacious for a city hotel. The view as not beautiful by any means with views of the streetcar changing station and tracks, but it was surprisingly quiet and we could see the cruise ships in the distance from one of the windows. We were on the corner which was an excellent location due to the extra light and limited noise.

Breakfast was fairly good, especially the make-yourself waffles. Scrambled eggs weren't the greatest, but fair enough to eat. There were also breakfast potatoes, sausage, fruit, and continental breakfast items, in addition to 3 kinds of coffee and juices.

The staff was friendly and helpful, especially the nice lady in the breakfast area (I'm sorry I didn't catch her name) who offered to do the waffles for us. The front desk was helpful in calling us a cab to get to the wedding (we were in walking distance but didn't want to walk several blocks in heels and carrying bulky presents).

Overall, a great stay and a reasonable rate.

Room Tip: If you can get a corner room, there's extra light and better noise control. We had room 208.
