If you're set on staying downtown where rates are always more expensive, check out the Sheraton Tampa Riverwalk. Located in the heart of downtown along the scenic Hillsborough River, this hotel features great views and first-class amenities. Although it's one of the older hotels downtown, they have recently renovated their public spaces and guest rooms. Beware though, because of its premium location, rates here will vary from $99 to $200 a night during peak season.
If you're looking to make the most of a limited budget, move out of downtown and stay at the Quality Inn & Suites Near Fairgrounds Ybor City. For a price of $70 off-season and $150 peak-season, you get a clean and comfortable room, many free perks, and a central location with convenient access to many Tampa attractions including the Hard Rock Casino, Fairgrounds, and Busch Gardens.
