We stayed here when we went over to visit our daughter who was attending a local college. When we checked in at the front desk, we dropped off the luggage and went out for dinner.

I thought was a pretty good deal at about half of what other downtown hotels are charging. It's not a luxury hotel, but it is great place to crash when planning a night out in downtown. We've stayed there twice and will likely do it again.

My favorite hotel. Right in downtown, walking distance to so many great places, an you don't even have to leave the hotel to eat at the of the finest restaurants in st.petersburg. I've stay there for everything from baseball games to concerts or get to get away for a weekend an take in some museums.

Staff not sensitive to needs of customers especially if there are unusual occurrences such as water leaks in bathroom that wakes you at at 3am. They expect you to clean it yourself and will not make an adjustment on room rate even though water leak kept you awake all night.

The hotel staff made us feel like family. The rooms are updated and comfortable. Many of the rooms have a great view of the downtown or the bay. You can walk to every place you want to go and leave the car in the parking garage.

Location is perfect. Character is abundant. Website misleading. We reserved a suite described as 2 rooms. It is reall one room with a closet/tv cabinet in the center. Open all around and in the center so no privacy. Murphy bed in one side of room kept collapsing and was impossible for my daughter and granddaughter to sleep in. Ended up...
