Hampton Inn & Suites Tampa/Ybor City/Downtown

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Great little Hampton Inn in a location convenient for access to downtown for business and Ybor City for an excellent selection of restaurants. The staff is outstanding! I've stayed here several times and every staff person is consistently friendly and helpful. I'm impressed!

The breakfasts are good. The parking area is small, but convenient. The security measures are sufficient enough to make me feel comfortable when traveling alone.

This is my hotel-of-choice in Tampa.

We could not be more pleased with our stay. It is located on the main strip in Ybor where all the action is at night--pubs, restaurants, discos, etc. We loved that there was hot daily breakfast as well as a swimming pool. What made our stay even more pleasant was the incredibly concerning and amicable front desk staff, namely the various black women who were/are simply the best.

We were in town for a small surgical procedure at Tampa General Hospital and selected this hotel at the doctor's recommendation. We were there for three nights, combining a little pleasure with our primary purpose. The facilities are top notch and the room was very comfortable. Breakfast was exactly as expected, very good. The shuttle driver was most accommodating. The streetcar stop was right across the street. The decor reflects the Ybor neighborhood history. It was very easy to get around the city from here. All in all, we had a most comfortable stay and will definitely stay here again.

I spend one night with my family of 3 before leaving the next day on a cruise. The hotel is in great location and easy to get to the port. The hotel provides a free shuttle for drop off and return. Coming back from your cruise make sure you go to the parking area for buses/vans (pick-up is across the street from the cruise terminal near the garage). I had a longer wait than normal because I was not in the right area. The hotel is less than 10 minutes from the port. You can even leave you car parked at the hotel for an extra fee. Look for the special on the hotel website.
The room was clean, the breakfast the next morning was the normal Hampton Inn breakfast, but a lot people if you wait to eat right before they close. Check in and out was easy.
If you have time and want to experience Ybor.. You are right at the gate to the “city”… the streets are full of fun and some great sights. Not recommend you take small kids to some party hubs.

Room Tip: Coming back from your cruise make sure you go to the parking area for buses/vans (pick-up is across...

I am a real person and not some computer generated prompt writing some flowery review or fabrication. In all seriousness, this hotel reinvigorated my faith in the ability of hotels to put out a quality product altogether. Everyone was helpful, the staff was on point, and the convenience of the hotel cannot be beaten. I would highly recommend this hotel to a person traveling to Tampa. It is close to the restaurants and shops in Ybor and only a few minutes away from downtown.

My husband and I stayed here the night before our cruise because of their "park & cruise" and we had a wonderful time and will be doing this again every time we cruise out of Tampa OR are looking to stay in Ybor. The hotel was clean the staff was wonderful and my husband who is picky beyond belief when it comes to bacon and usually won't eat it since it is NEVER crispy enough to his liking went back for more...I think he would come back for just the bacon. We had a wonderful stay and we want to say thank you!

We traveled to Tampa on August 1st for a wedding chose this hotel due to the location of the wedding and in the heart of Ybor City. We also went to Comicon at the Tampa convention center on 8/2/14, about 2 miles from the hotel.
You will pay $ 8.00 dollars to park your car at the hotel garage with an elevator to the lobby.
immediately after entering the elevator the employees greeted our party with smiles. Every employee thereafter smiled and greeted us, I miss this from other hotels. Quick check in to our room #225 great room Very quiet the whole night not a sound. Clean and the beds where very comfortable. We walked to the entrance to Ybor City right out of the hotel lobby. We did'nt use or need the shuttle, you have to go to The Tampa Brewery Yum! and The Brick a restaurant with fresh organic very tasty food.
The breakfast was so fulfilling and fresh, oatmeal, waffles, fresh fruit, cereal, eggs, sausage, bagels, juice, muffins, fresh hot coffee. Clean pool, extra towels and plenty of SUN.
Plenty of places to eat and shop around the corner.
Your really going to like this hotel.

Room Tip: You have to ask for a room far from the side of the trolley station next to the hotel.
