WONDERFUL!

The hotel is smack-dab in the middle of downtown and close to the water. We walked to restaurants, cafes, the pier and the ballfield for the baseball game that was our original reason to go to St. Pete. We found a great Irish pub, a Tapas brunch restaurant and a breakfast cafe/diner just because of their proximity to the Ponce de Leon. The hotel is SO nice--our view was of the main front street and the waterfront. The staff couldn't have been nicer and the accommodations were wonderful without being pricey. We will definitely return next time we're in that area.

Trip over the holidays

Stayed there for a night for the Bitcoin bowl and was a decent hotel for the price. It is what you would expect from a Boutique hotel with creaky hardwood etc but the location and price is why we picked it.

Needed a place for the weekend

We had to be out of our downtown apartment for maintenance over the weekend. This hotel was the best value in downtown. The room was very small but good enough for what we needed. My girlfriend did request new sheets be put on the bed as ours had stains. They seemed to be washed but stained. There were a few cigarette burns in the carpet. The mini fridge and microwave worked. The TV in our room was incredibly tiny. I believe it's a 13 inch. We stayed on the 6th floor and had to take the stairs when we first checked in because the elevator went out. They had it fixed within 5-10 minutes so they were very attentive.

Great for the price

For the price and location, this was a great pick and bang for your buck. The staff was very friendly. The location was wonderful, being a block from the pier and waterfront. On the weekend, there is a fantastic farmers market just a block away. The hotel itself, though, wasn't so great. The rooms were extremely small. I ended up having to stay in two different rooms (because I booked the nights at different times). In the first room, the bathroom sink was outside of the bathroom and in the second room, the bed pulled down from the wall.

I liked the charm and character, but the room had an odor and the carpet didn't look like it had been vacuumed. Fantastic location! Overall, not bad.

Blocks from the Dali, MFA, and tons of fun downtown bars! The queen suite was roomy, had a balcony, and a great view!
