“Older, But Nice Hotel”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

My first impression of this hotel is that it is worth the money you have to spend for it. Rooms were large albeit not overly luxurious. The greatest amenity that the hotel has is its location. It is located across the street from Al Lang Field, near the Mahaffey Theater, and down the street from Tropicana Field. A pleasant surprise is that a Publix Supermarket, Subway, and a host of other services are a 2-3 walk away. The pool area is very nice and well taken care of. We had no complaints after staying for three nights at the hotel. .

Where to start....we arrived about 12:30 am with a non-smoking reservation. Apparently it was just non-smoking "preferred." After a long day of traveling we were given a smoking room which was like walking into a smoker's lounge, in addition it had stains all over the furniture. After a headache started to ensue we knew we couldn't stay there for the night. The hotel only had smoking rooms left and we had to leave and go to another hotel. Our conference was at the hotel and we came back the next night for a non-smoking room. It was cleaner but still old. We tried to enjoy the hot tub...but that didn't work out it was barely lukewarm. If I was coming back to St. Pete I wouldn't stay here. I've been in better Holiday Inns. The staff was very helpful though and the maid staff were wonderful.

Calling the Hilton "bayfront" seemed a bit of a misnomer as I could see the water from my 7th-floor room, but I couldn't figure out how to get there. There was a busy road, a baseball stadium, and much more between the hotel and the bay.

The staff of the hotel was very friendly and very helpful. When I asked for a good restaurant to go to for stone crabs, I was given directions to a terrific spot (not the typical tourist trap).

The water with strawberries in the lobby was a nice treat. The rooms were comfortable and clean if not special. My room seemed to get quite a bit of noise from the adjoining room. The pool was fine, but was not so attractive that I felt compelled to go for a swim.

The hotel was an easy walk to many fine restaurants in St. Petersburg.

I would be fine staying at this hotel again, but I would not specially plan for a return trip.

The lobby gives you a great first impression but the room (13th floor) left alot to be desired. We had a king sized bed with a separate seating room. The separate room had a three pane window that had two panes so horribly stained ....and stained within the panes that it wasn't a matter of not washing the window, it should have had the panes replaced. This place is old and the humidity has taken a toll on much of the bathroom. Speaking of the bathroom, the lighting is so dim that applying makeup is only for someone very experienced by feel and light not required. lol.
Pro: Good location; friendly staff. King bed was comfortable. Televisions were nice and worked properly.

Con: Needs updating; overpriced for value; forget breakfast room service (cold food and only item edible was the bacon).

The hotel lobby seemed promising and the hotel employees were very nice. However, the rooms were less than adequate. The curtains had stains, no refrigerator, TV reception poor and the mattresses had indentations were previous guests had slept and looked ancient!
