Recent guest reviews

Location in downtown St. Pete is great. It is clean, upscale, staff is friendly and accommodating. We are seasoned travelers and we highly recommend this property.

Did not like check in procedures. Room was not ready and never got a call as promised. Had to keep checking with desk.

What we liked, was the staff was very accommodating to our needs.

What happened to free wi-fi? 216.00 for our one night and I had to pay for wi-fi as well...

Hotel was seriously understaffed during our stay. We requested a roll away bed but never received it.

Short stay. Got in late and left at check out. Not much to report other than musty odor.

Older hotel in downtown in good condition near good restaurants and museums.

Short stay but couldn’t have been nicer. Just ran into no issues, and the staff was nice. The room and building were beautiful.

There were 2 things that affected my rating. The first was during checking they took my CC # for "incidentals." The next day I was told that I had to go back down to the Front Desk because they didn't have a number on file. Is there no way for them to tell that when they enter my card (which I used all weekend without issue) didn't get filed? And the room keys they gave me didn't work. The other issue was with the door to the room next to mine. The door would hit the jamb and have to be forcibly pulled to close and lock it. There was no way to do that quietly. We were woken numerous times as the poor next door tried to close the broken door. Not sure why that wasn't caught by the staff during cleaning but it ruined our night.

Girlfriend and I took a weekend trip down to St. Petersburg to visit her friend so was just looking for somewhere to basically sleep. Arrived on a Thursday at about 11pm and when we got there got upgraded to a suite room, which was perfect for her friend to come down for Saturday night to sleep instead of having to drive back home after a night out. Average bed and bathroom. Strange there was no fitted sheet on the bed though. Walking distance to most areas of downtown.

Bathroom had part of the ceiling missing. Toilet paper holder cam out of wall. Tub faucet wasn't attached and shook.

Lovely hotel, good location. Very clean. Nice bar, good food. A little pricey.

Great location! Close to downtown across the street from theater and museum!

The front desk staff is excellent! Toby, who helped us went out of his way to make sure our experience was beyond our expectations.

Was in town for a family wedding in Orlando and wanted to do a quick St. Pete trip for 1st Friday Art Walk. Perfect location. Staff was friendly and informative.

My conference was in this hotel, so it was good for convenience. The staff was ok regarding any assistance. The room service was not very edible. If I had to return for a conference at this same location - I'll be tempted to find another hotel nearby but will probably just stay for the convenience.

We expected better from this high profile hotel. Shame you had to pay extra for parking and internet access. Towels were badly stained and when we contacted front desk asking for new towels they never arrived plus Staff entering the room within the first 30 minutes unannounced. Didn't think it was value for the money paid.

The Hotel was nice - needs work on room furniture - but location is excellent :)

Staff is always pleasant. Rooms are consistent. Convenient location to Dali Museum, downtown St. Pete restaurants and concert venues, baseball and a great farmer's market on Saturday mornings. I love having a room that overlooks Albert Whitted airport and watch the small planes take off and land. Downside is that the TV doesn't have a guide to see what's on what channels, a bit disorganized. The bathroom lighting is nice but not bright enough when drying my hair and the mirror really isn't big enough. The power outlet on the TV Credenza is a great thought! Wish it was closer to the mirror in the main part of the room though so I could dry my hair with better lighting
