Good Quality, Great Rates at Popular Tampa Hotels

Visitors to Tampa will appreciate the city's hotel rates no matter what their budget. Relative to other large North American cities, Tampa is very affordable and for between $200 and $250 a night travelers can take their pick of the most luxurious accommodations in town.

However, for those traveling on a more modest budget, there are many comfortable and convenient options to choose from. To help you out, 10 Best has gathered ten of the top hotel choices that represent the best balance between quality, location and price. All hotels on this list go for less than $150 per night, except for peak season February through April.

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.
