Our 16 Guest rooms and suites feature modern amenities in an old European setting and many rooms have wrought-iron balconies. Guests rooms and foyer are decorated with Persian rugs and antiques. The opulent grand salon will make you feel as if you've traveled back to the peak of 19th-century luxury, while the brick and wood dining area brings to mind a cozy tavern.

The Don Vicente de Ybor Inn is a stunning venue to have a wedding reception. Any pictures taken there will definitely turn out very nice (as mine did). Also, the catering is very good. We got a lot of compliments about the food at our reception. However, working with them can sometimes be frustrating because they take a long time to respond to you, and they often get some details wrong so you have to correct them and remind them of certain things when it is time to sign the contract. We enjoyed having our reception here, but really could have done without the stress of their slow responsiveness. The solution to this is to hire Tammy Waterman from Special Moments Event planning to deal with them for you (we did, and once we did it was a relief!). Tammy knows the staff at the Don Vicente personally and makes sure they respond to your inquiries. She coordinates many weddings here so she knows exactly how to work with them and she makes sure your wedding is exactly what you want.
Overall I recommend the Don Vicente because they have very reasonable prices, a stunning venue and great catering. But if you don't want to deal with waiting for responses, hire Tammy.

The Don Vicente was such a lovely place to host our wedding reception. Beautiful with old world charm, I knew it was the place in Ybor that would be perfect for our reception. My husband and I, along with our guests were not disappointed. It really was a beautiful backdrop to celebrate our day.

Overall the service was attentive. I struggled a bit in the beginning of our wedding planning with responsiveness and getting confusing/ mixed answers to some of the questions I asked (there was some confusion on if I could reserve the block of rooms upstairs for our guests- at first I was told yes, they were free-- and then no, they weren't). Either way, it worked itself out and our day was wonderful and my wedding planner was able to work with the staff to make everything the day of run smoothly, and look beautiful.

The Don Vicente is a beautiful, old style vintage hotel. If that's the theme wedding you're having, this is the perfect location. I rated 4 stars on a few because there is a seriously HUGE miscommunication problem between 2 of the wedding coordinators. I remember the first meeting we had my mother payed for the ceremony in FULL. Months later, we were asked for our deposit. Through email months before our wedding we asked if we needed to set up another meeting right before the wedding to go through the final details. No answer. The week before the wedding we got an email asking when we could come in to go over everything. Again, just awful communication skills. BUT the hotel is so historic and beautiful, it made it all worth it!!!!

We decided to have our wedding at the Don Vicente simply for it's character. We were completely enchanted with this old gem in downtown Ybor. The staff was wonderful when we entered, even offered us the chance to see a couple of the rooms that weren't occupied! Tiffany, Tessa, Damon and Jack were all so kind and really went above and beyond for us!

Most of the hullabaloo happened within the last 6-8 weeks of our wedding and Tessa and her team were able to provide gluten free options for some of our guests! The food was fantastic and I still dream about those bacon wrapped plantains! Everyone's food came out perfectly --no overcooking or undercooking! It tasted fresh and not like normal "wedding food".

The Don's team is willing to chat for hours with you about your ideas and really willing ot make sure your wedding dreams become reality! I would highly recommend them, and would even pay for an extra hour for us to party further! If you'd like a vintage feel, with good food and a great after party, pick the Don. You won't be disappointed!

The only cons I had were: the bridal suite wasn't complimentary for the night of the wedding and the communication at the beginning of our contract negotiations wasn't the swiftest. But with a simple phone call, things were taken care of. :D

The Don Vicente was absolutely the best wedding venue in Tampa for our wedding and reception!
The Don Vicente provided the most beautiful, intimate, and romantic venue for our wedding. The Don Vicente team listened to our wishes for the ceremony, entertainment, and dining for our family and friends – and they exceeded our wishes in every detail.
The event services staff beautifully set-up the grand salon for our wedding ceremony. And, then following the ceremony, magically transformed it into a grand dining room for our 140 guests as our guest enjoyed delightful cocktails, scrumptious hors d'oeuvres, and live entertainment in the Don Vicente’s downstairs lounge.
Our dinner selections were delicious beyond words! Our guests raved how incredibly delicious was the chicken stuffed with Tasso Ham & Manchego Cheese, and how perfectly prepared was their beef tenderloin! We still have friends and family commenting on how delicious were the hors d’oeuvres and dinners; and the fantastic bar service. The wedding was a week ago and even still today we received cards in the mail giving accolades about the food, the Don Vicente staff, and how beautiful the venue was for the wedding!

I was there as part of a wedding and I have to say that Damon, the "manager" is a lying crook. First, I had issues with my reservation...a few times. Then, when I went to check in, they told me that the room I was promised had been given to somebody else. They tried to tell me that they didn't reserve rooms, even though every reservation agent told me otherwise. They tried to play it off as needing a double queen for another person but the room they tried to put me in was also a double queen. So, they tried to make nice by giving me a comp night. Fair enough. Except the crook just called me up and said that he was reneging his offer and I was no longer getting the comp night.

We had a lot of guests comment on how beautiful the venue is. Because the Don Vicente is so ornate, I was able to keep the decorating expense at a minimum. The staff at the Don Vicente is very professional and attentive. They worked with me on the budget and always answered my questions. With little supervision and direction, they created a reception space much more beautiful than I could have ever created. My guests commented on how cool, neat, and different the venue was. I truly believe that will make my wedding memorable for many of my guests.

Overall my experience with The Don Vicente Inn was a positive one. We were initially drawn to the inn because it was a historic and elegant venue that seemed perfect for an intimate ceremony & reception. This all proved to be true. Because it is essentially a mom & pop operation with a small staff, and we were dealing with them directly from our home in Chicago, response time and communication was sometimes lacking. However, it all worked out in the end and when the wedding weekend actually arrived we found the staff to be helpful. We used the lobby, dining area, and downstairs lounge for the event and it all looked stunning with very little additional decoration. The bridal suite was also lovely. I will say that some of the other guest rooms seemed to lack attention to detail, and Ybor City on a Saturday night does not make for the most restful sleep. However, everyone seemed to have a good time and ultimately the Don Vicente helped us achieve our vision of an offbeat, vintage wedding.

We could not have been more pleased with The Don Vicente and the staff. Tessa, Conchetta, Chef Trish, and the rest of the team were a joy to work with, and gave us an amazing wedding evening, and dinner. All of our guests talked about how much they liked the hotel....the feel they had when they walked inside. The hotel is beautiful on it's own...but then you add the flowers, the candles, the family and friends...and you've got a spectacular venue and event. Our room was beautiful as well. Thank you Don Vicente Team for working with our wonderful coordinator, Special Moments, Iza's Flowers, BG Pictures, MusicMagic DJ, and the rest of the vendors to make our night so special. Can't wait to find another excuse for a party...we know where to go and where to stay.

We rented out the hotel the night before the wedding and all but 2 rooms the night of. It was spectacular! The staff couldn't have been friendlier, or more helpful throughout the entire process! While we were looking for affordable places to have the ceremony, I was terrified we would get stuck in a room with white walls, a white floor, white everything. I didn't want to get married in a hospital room! But nothing seemed to fit our budget and feel right. The moment we walked into the Don Vicente we knew it was the place. Later we found out it was reasonably priced and that they would do the ceremony, reception and catering! The entire weekend was amazing and it is in large part thanks to the Don Vicente and their staff!

The Don Vicente is the MOST BEAUTIFUL place in Ybor City to have a Wedding Ceremony and/or Reception, especially if you have a vintage theme (or not, it is just so gorgeous). It is reminiscent of old world Cuba, as qualified by my Abuela (grandmother) crying for a good 30 minutes after seeing the place for he first time because it reminded her of the Havana she once knew. The place has so much charm that there is very little you need to do in terms of decorations, and the Bridal Suite is a GREAT place to get ready for your wedding -- Big and Inviting -- I highly recommend at least reserving this room for the day of you wedding.

This being said, they place does need some much need TLC (reupholster furniture, fixing the broken sign out front, a new paint job, and a some minor repairs to the furniture in the inn rooms), however your wedding guests more then likely will not notice it (unless they are actually staying at the inn or if they are architects or interior designers).

Responsiveness and Professionalism are marked lower because the Director of Events, Tessa (who is nice and very personable), is not easy to get a hold of and is not very responsive to emails or phone calls unless you send emails or call multiple times, and then when you do get a hold of her she doesn't remember what you what you talked about last. However their saving grace is Conchita, the Assistant to the Director of Events. She is very responsive, always remembers who you are, and will help you with any question you have (well up to a point because Tessa is ultimately the Director of Events ). Other than that on the weekend of our wedding, the rest of the staff at the inn and even the waiters at reception were very friendly, very accommodating and willing to help you with anything you need.

Overall I highly recommend this place for a wedding or any event. The food is great, the inn the beautiful, the staff is friendly and the value is amazing.

Not what I was expecting. Was confused why the servers only served half of my guest and waited to serve the other half (at the same table). Pretty venue, but felt the servers could be a little more preofessionl. Some of them had a lot of tattoos and it would have been nice if they would have them cover up. Also, the security at the venue was little to none. Unfortunately one of my guest had their purse stolen. Not saying that it was one of the employees, but all of my guest stood to the end and the credit card was used during the time we were still at the wedding.

Not what I was expecting. Was confused why the servers only served half of my guest and waited to serve the other half (at the same table). Pretty venue, but felt the servers could be a little more preofessionl. Some of them had a lot of tattoos and it would have been nice if they would have them cover up. Also, the security at the venue was little to none. Unfortunately one of my guest had their purse stolen. Not saying that it was one of the employees, but all of my guest stood to the end and the credit card was used during the time we were still at the wedding. Also, one my guest who stayed at the Inn found something very disturbing in the one pf tge roomd and she had to find a worker to remove and clean the area. Really pretty place for pictures. Read less

The Don Vicente is without a doubt the most amazing wedding venue in Tampa. I held my ceremony, cocktail hour, & reception within the different spaces the hotel offers. The Inn has such personality & beauty that I hardly had to add décor. The bridal suite is absolutely stunning as well is the rest of the hotel. I felt like a queen and was treated as one on my big day. The staff was all friendly & helpful along with the planning up to and including the day of. My guests were impressed with the venue, the food, & the overall feel of the entire wedding. If you are looking for an intimate, romantic, & classy spot, this is your place . A special thanks to Tessa, Conchetta, & chef Trish for everything. My day was PERFECT and would not change a thing!

If you want an intimate, romantic, beautiful, no hassle venue on a medium sized budget, this is absolutely the place to go. The rich woods and bricks made for stunning photos. It's all family owned and they do lots of events so don't expect consistent updates and you might get different answers from different people. Bottom line is they will do whatever it takes to make it right when it's all said and done. Because it is all family owned, they treat you like family. They are so accommodating and welcoming.
The food was incredible! We served Cuban food family style and the guests raved. We got comments like "I thought this was going to be 'wedding food' so I filled up on bread, but then the food came and I ended up stuffing myself because it was all so great." they'll custom order your menu and they are not afraid to season. The presentation is lovely.

My husband and I cannot even begin to say how happy we are that we chose the Don Vicente for our wedding. Both the ceremony and reception were beautifully done. We knew we loved it, and our guests only confirmed it, saying again and again how great it was. Tessa and Conchetta are terrific to work with. Right from the very first planning stages, they put us at ease with their qualifications, experience, and competence. They are also just friendly, fun, good people! The charm, history, and beauty of The Don Vicente cannot be underestimated. My husband and I considered many places - country clubs, big hotels, etc., and none of them matched the warm intimacy of the Don Vicente. And the food, prepared by the Chef Trish is absolutely exquisite - so much better then the typical fare served at most weddings. The people, the service, and the facility at the Don Vicente are truly wonderful! Thank you for an amazing wedding weekend! Aly & Rob McLaughlin

We had a wonderful experience with the Don Vicente. It is a great venue for a wedding of 100 people or less. The food is great, and the venue is very unique for Florida. It has a lot of old world charm. Because the place is so small, there are pros and cons with that. The pro's are they keep their prices down and you can get a great value for a quality event. The cons are because the are small they do not have staff like your traditional event planners. They ask that you have a planner there that day. We hired someone we knew to help us as our "planner" for the day and it worked out GREAT. People raved about the location. The team at the Don Vicente is really flexible and laid back. If you are a type A bride, you might struggle with how laid back their approach is. For me, it was right up my alley. Also, this place photographs SO WELL. Our photos are amazing. If you are looking for a smaller, unique wedding - you should check this place out.

Beautiful venue in a great setting! We wanted (a) a place with some history and charm, (b) somewhere where our out-of-town guests could feel at home and walk to nearby bars, restaurants, etc., and (c) an affordable price. The Don Vicente Inn, Ybor City, was perfect. Our classic vintage theme worked perfectly, our guests had a blast, and the event didn't break the bank. Tessa and Damon are very nice, although it did help a great deal to have a wedding planner assist us with details. We held an evening ceremony in the lobby area, with an all-dessert/cocktail reception in the event/bar area. An after-party was held in their "speak-easy" style basement bar. I have no doubt our pictures will come out fabulously, which were taken inside and out on the streets of Ybor. I would highly recommend this venue if you have a wedding planner to assist you.

I can’t say enough about Don Vicente and the staff. We had our ceremony and reception there. We also had our guests stay at the hotel after the wedding. I have spent months searching for venue that had classy and vintage feel but was also very accommodating and warm. I am probably one of the pickiest people when it comes to food, but food here was amazing! Their Chef Trish is a magician! For our chicken course we wanted them to duplicate Chicken Bryan from Carabbas and were little worried about it. We were so surprised at the outcome! Chicken tasted better than at Carabbas and portions were much bigger!! Steaks were juicy and we have received so many compliments on the food from appetizers down to signature drink! What makes this place so amazing, besides its wonderful décor and aesthetics, is truly its staff. Our families and friends traveled from out-of-state and many flew in from other countries and they couldn’t stop talking how wonderful Don Vicente staff was from the moment of checking-in all the way through wedding and up until the check out. Everyone felt like family. Tessa is exceptional and a true professional, her staff is amazing, polite and most importantly courteous. I will be forever indebted to them for making my wedding absolutely perfect. I wouldn’t have changed one thing! If you want your wedding guests treated like royalty, Don Vicente is your number one choice in Tampa!

Spare yourself the regret of booking your wedding event here!! It is a shame because building is beautiful; however, it is run by a bunch of drunks and circus clowns. They do not provide the services they agree upon. The staff and so called “wedding coordinator” (Tessa) are absolutely unorganized and unprofessional. As far as the food, it is not worth the money. If you do not want your most memorable day ruined, then do NOT book here!! It is not worth the spoiled memories or money! Many local vendors will also tell you how unorganized this place is.

The Don Vicente staff was a pleasure to work with in planning my wedding. They were friendly, professional, accommodating, and had obviously worked on many weddings and special events. The location is beautiful and particularly well-suited for a small to mid-size wedding (up to 100 guests). We really appreciated the convenience of having our family and close friends stay at the Don Vicente. The only complaint we heard was noise at night, but that is probably to be expected given the Ybor City location.

Even though our wedding was 3 years ago, I was so happy to find the DV. We had originally looked at The Crosley Estate because we loved the old world feel it had but the cost was too high to just rent the place. The DV has everything right in one place and for a great price. We didn't have to do much decorating, didn't need transportation since everything was taking place there. The rooms were very nice, esp. since we were the only ones staying there. The food was INCREDIBLE! It was nice that I didn't have to bring in my own chairs and the whole hotel makes for really nice photos. Tessa was wonderful to work with and they were very flexible with making changes to the contract to accommodate our needs. they helped with set up and helped to send back the linens the next day. Everyone there is so nice and laid back. Our wedding party had the whole hotel to ourselves that night and some people were late owls and went exploring through the public parts of the hotel, esp. the downstairs lounge, and the night staff was very nice about that. Thank you Tessa for making our wedding a wonderful memory!

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Tessa when planning my wedding at the Don Vicente. The venue is so gorgeous that you don't need to waste hundreds of dollars on decoration. The food that Trish made was phenomenal. I am somewhat of a food snob and I adored everything she made for our reception. I could not have been more happy with my experience.
