Here’s the skinny on the Hilton Tampa Downtown
We LOVE this hotel. Every time I go to Tampa, I try my best to stay here because it is so freakin’ close to everything. The rooms are super swanky. They have a killer rooftop heated pool and hot tub! I can cruise over to Ybor on the Teco Street Car and then snag a cheap cheap cheap cab ride back. So, when we decided to do this BIG PRE-FEST down in Ybor last year, I had to see if they would be interested in hosting us. They were beyond receptive and are once again giving us a great rate to pass along to all you guys. They’ve also completed a $20,000,000.00 renovation. This is the same hotel we had last year for the first BIG PRE-FEST in Ybor. Same hotel – just no registration/flea market there this year.

FYI: They do not have a parking lot or free parking, but offer self parking for $16.00 or Valet for $20.00. I usually just find a lot close by, or you could hunt down some street parking. Kinda the breaks to be in the heart of downtown I guess.
