family vacation

The hotel is situated in a nice area. Hotel staff were so helpful, and were able to accommodate my needs as I had a little child with me and needed a crib. Front agent named (Darlin) was especially very helpful and understanding, she had gone out of her way to find a baby crib for my child as the hotel didn't have any cribs available at the time. Thanks

Vacation

Everything was great from check in to check out. The hotel is in an easy access area to clearwater and Saint Petersburg. The only down fall was the restaurant in the hotel called Hogans. The service was beyond slow we went on three occasions breakfast food was good but took a long time to be greeted and food arrival. Went for just drinks in the afternoon I felt like the staff just has no sense of ergency because there was staff around. Other than the restaurant it was great.

WE ENJOYED THE SOUNDPROOF ROOMS .THE HOTEL BARANDA PROVIDED AN EXCELLENT VIEW OF THE CITY. THE STAFF WERE FRIENDLY. THE ONLY PROBLEM I HAD WAS THAT OUR SOAP DIDN'T ACOMADATE OUR NUMBER OF STAYS AT THE HOTEL. I WOULD VISIT IT AGAIN UNDER THE SAME MANAGEMENT TEAM. ONE YOUNG LADY IN PETICULAR HELP US GET BACK TO OUR HOTEL BY GIVING THE PROPER DIRECTIONS AFTER WE DROVE AROUND FOR AN HOUR. I FORGET HER NAME BUT SHE WORKED 5/29 EVENING SHIFT. CUDOS TO THE STAFF.

We enjoyed our trip

We enjoyed our stay. Robert was awesome. Language barriers with housekeeping, they did not speak English and i spoke very little Spanish. So communicating with them regarding what i did and did not need was slightly difficult. That just means i should brush up on my spanish. Overall it was great.
