We have no real idea about Florida so
headed onto the next place recommended in the books, Tampa. Not sure
what to expect we found a place to stay and headed into town.
Aha, more theme parks. We declined being a little theme park'ed out at that stage - especially the African Safari experience ones. It was decided that we …
Hey everyone! Long time no blog. We have just spent the week in Tampa, Florida where we spent two days at Busch Gardens theme park. Not much else to do there but we will tell you what we did anyways. We experienced very tropical hot and humid weather and have never heard or seen so much thunder and lightning.

Let us start by telling you about the lovely bed & breakfast that we came upon just as we thought we were going to be homeless on the 4th of July. The Chipley-Murrah House is a Victorian inn built in 1895. The inn offers 6 spacious bedrooms each with their private bath, the rooms are elegantly decorated with furnishings from that era. We were in the Governor's suite. The house has a broad wrap-around ...
... short run to Tampa with 3 impressive thunder storms along the way and watching fireworks on the drive across Tampa Bay and from our hotel.
Ricky, our little dog, who is now an official "Emotional Support Animal" had a rough time. As we arrived at the hotel the fireworks got the best of him and he needed emotional support making to the room. Not an impressive debut as an official aide animal.
Having managed to scale down to 1 suitcase and getting treated to a Towncar to the Airport, my flight to Miami is delayed! I'm off the Wagon for this vacation so it's off to the airport bar I go! Thanks for the ride Carlos. The delay turned into re routing me through London and a total loss of a full day in Milan. Luckily during my Heathrow layover Nessie came to the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn Tampa / Ybor City/Downtown
Not overly impressed
My husband had business in Ybor City and we stayed 3 days. The check-in staff was unfriendly and unhelpful. When asked, they informed us it would cost $40 to take a cab to Busch Gardens, a major attraction 8 miles away. The cab ride ended up being $26. Their shuttle van would only take you within a radius of 5 miles, which did not include the Tampa airport or Busch Gardens. Our room was not cleaned by 5:00 one day. Their free continental breakfast was decent, though.
My wife and I spent three nights here during the Gasparilla Pirate Festival weekend and were very pleased with our decision. The location was excellent for our needs, just around the corner from the trolley to downtown Tampa, so we did not have to drive and park downtown during the festival.
Beware - not a good Hampton Inn
I had a gauranteed room for myself, my wife, and for our infant daughter. When we arrived at 11:00 PM, we were informed that the hotel was overbooked. When we arrived at the new hotel, there were approximately 6 other rooms there occupied by other Hampton Inn overbooked guests.
When we did finally return to the Hampton Inn the next day, we found the walls to be paper thin. We stayed in a room at the end of the hallway and could hear the ding of the elevator as clearly as if we were standing right next to it. As for the room next door, we could hear everything that was going on in there as well.
Nothing to offer
It did not have a game room for the children, no heated pool, staff un frienly,do not think it was worth the price at all,it said in room to call desk if you left tooth brush, which we did and they said they did not have any,did not have any mouth wash in room either,not stay there again.
We booked this room for one night 10/29. We wanted location so that we could be near the Guavaween festival. The room was very clean, very new. We had a hard time getting to the hotel because of the road blocks for the festival, but once we arrived we were greeted with a smile. Security was tight to keep out those who were not guests. We couldn't have asked for a better location, walking distance to everything. Deluxe continental breakfast was tasty. Much better than other hotel chains.
Steyed there one night. The people in the room next to me were very loud, and running between several rooms across the hallway all night long. The walls are so thin that I could not sleep. I was too tired to try to switch rooms or complain, so I can't comment on customer service. There is just no sound isolation whatsoever.
Nice new hotel
My 17 year old daughter and I stayed for one night while attending a skateboarding event. Very nice accomodations. Large room with excellent beds and pillows. Large shower with nice shower head. Excellent free ethernet service. Small fridge, microwave and one cup coffee maker in room. Good complimentary breakfast. Very small pool with only 3 regular chairs by pool. Three pieces of aerobic equipment in excercise room (no weights). Only downside was my wake up call was assigned to a different room. Also, it is somewhat difficult to find the front entrance, parking to hotel due to one way streets and trolley lines. Would definitely stay here again.
This business traveler loved staying in a Hampton Inn just a few months old, and it was even more of a bonus to be taken care of by a very competent and friendly staff. Lots of covered parking in the garage, there is a charge on weekend nights. Check-in extremely fast, blink and you'll miss it. My room was okay-sized but nicely appointed with new-looking furniture and a style that had the Cuban feelings of Ybor. One of the best hotel beds I've slept on, a high bed with just the right firmness. Bathroom was fancy, fixtures solid and new and everything super clean. Wired Internet service very fast (11 Mbps), WiFi available in common areas (even by the pool!). Free breakfast with biscuits and gravy was yummy, even the all-day coffee was excellent. (Be careful of the one-cup in-room coffee maker, it tends to spit at you when finishing.) A great combination of the new Hampton amenities, a well-trained staff and attention to detail made this trip delightful. Excellent value, highly recommended.
This is a new hotel in the Ybor City section of Tampa. Very convenient to the trolley stop (which takes you through Ybor City and to Channelside and Hyde Park) and within walking distance of most Ybor City sites.
Nicely decorated, well kept rooms, comfortable beds, free breakfast. Friendly and helpful front desk staff. Only drawback would be rather thin walls.
Couldn't be better
I stayed here for New Years Eve 2004 and absolutely loved it. It's a brand new hotel right in the middle of Ybor City. Everything at the hotel was impeccably clean and well decorated. The staff was very friendly, and the continental breakfast was good. The rooms were squeaky clean and also beautifully decorated. The trolley line that can take you elsewhere within downtown Tampa stops two blocks from the hotel. I'm sure plenty has been written about Ybor city elsewhere, so I won't attempt to do it justice here. Although the hotel costs a bit more than I usually spend, it's location and quality can't be beat. Don't hesitate to stay here if don't mind spending a little extra.
