Review for Eddie and Sams New York Pizza by Hannah
Rating: 5 Rating
Eddie and Sams was recommended to me by a friend a few years ago and is now my go-to pizza spot in Downtown Tampa. Prices are great, pizzas are great ..
Pros: Very close to other attractions, heart of downtown and provides outdoor seating.
Cons: A lot parking nearby but usually full and busy along the streets so try to plan ahead or use the suggested ParkMobil app.
Review for The Westin Tampa Harbour Island by Scott
Rating: 5 Rating
The Westin in Downtown Tampa on Harbour Island is a great hotel and one I recommend for just about any occasion.
Pros: Great location with just a short walk across the bridge to be at the Tampa Riverwalk.
Cons: On-site parking is in the garage below that can get a little crowded and confusing but overall it’s still convenient.

About Downtown Tampa

The Downtown Tampa skyline is growing with high rise office buildings like the Sykes building, and luxurious condominiums like Skypoint. The streets below the skyline are where you will find the many great restaurants, shops and bars that Tampa has to offer. Most of Tampa nightlife, along with other areas of interest, is found outside the downtown area in places like Hyde Park and historic Ybor City. Also located in Downtown Tampa are the Tampa Convention Center and St Pete Times Forum, where everything from classy Tampa events to exciting games happen. The University of Tampa is located just across the waters of Curtis Hixon Park, where many large, popular annual events are held. The TECO Line Streetcar provides affordable transportation to Channelside, Ybor City and downtown. Channelside is another popular neighborhood where there are popular restaurants, clubs, bars, shopping and theaters all in the same development! Harbour Island and Davis Island border Downtown Tampa just South onto the Bay Waters and house everything from enormous homes to subtle apartments all while being surrounded by their own small community with locally owned businesses, restaurants and salons. Be sure to check out everything Tampa has to offer by checking out the Tampa City Guide, where recreation, events and even local jobs in Tampa can be found!

Over the past couple years, Downtown Tampa has been undergoing rapid expansion with the development of both new entertainment complexes like Sparkman Wharf and parks like Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park. In addition, Water Street Tampa is in development with new high rises, apartments, condos, shops and more!
