    I probably already asked this but I forget.

    Places to stay. Just in Tampa Wednesday night. Ybor looks fun, but is it too college aged/bourbon street crap? Iím older, just looking at the cigar stores, etc.

    Downtown Tampa on the river looks nice, like across canal/bourbon in NOLA feel. Not close to the commotion.

    And then the Seminole hard rock. Looks like you can walk to/from the venue, but itís the round way about?

    Only a few hours in tampa before the show so really doesnít matter. Might just to airport hotel but if you can walk safely to/from hard rock, Iíd do that.

    Donít stay in Ybor. The downtown hotels are all really nice, and the Riverwalk is great. Staying at Hard Rock would certainly solve the transportation problem, I just donít know how nice the hotel is. They just added on a huge new wing recently so Iím sure itís nice, itís just not my scene so I never go there. I do know itís a little more expensive, but if youíre saving on ride-sharing, it evens out.

    Itís easily my favorite part of this whole region, and itís not particularly close.

    Thanks guys!

    St. Pete would be my first choice but itís kind of far for just one afternoon and going back and forth.

    Got it - No Ybor. Seems people either love it or hate it, like bourbon street.

    Downtown is where Iíve been looking, the river walk seems really cool to explore. So either that or Hard Rock. Hard Rock isnít my scene at all but itís new and renovated and close.

    Thanks again!

    Also vote no on Ybor. It's neither "nice" nor close.

    There's also the Holiday Inn Express right across from the venue if you end up prioritizing convenience. It's probably 10 min less of a walk than the casino, and right now it's $50 cheaper. Just FYI.

    Ybor is just seedy and sketchy. I worked down there for a couple years, you see some shit after dark.

    During the daytime there are plenty of good restaurants and bars, just call it an early night and avoid the crazies.

    Been there so many times on the weekends for concerts/stand up, and it's like the trashy circus came to town.

    No worse than the shit I saw on Beale Street when I lived in Memphis though.
