Unexpected Pleasure

This was a business trip for my boss. He was thrilled with his room. It was right next to the elevator, so he thought it was going to be a noisy night. However, the room was nice and quiet, and huge; it was the size of four hotel rooms! The location was perfect for our needs as well.

Our go to hotel in St. Pete

We stay at the Bayfront every year when we go to visit my mother. It's perfectly situated down on the St. Petersburg waterfront, close to the highway, which makes driving convenient. The downtown, the shops on Central Ave., and Tropicana field are all within walking distance. The rooms are clean, quiet, and comfortable. The beds are big. I like the fitness room downstairs. There's a CVS and Publix supermarket nearby, so we can get pretty much anything we need. Gratzzi is a terrific Italian restaurant across the street. We have really only one gripe: the hotel charges $16/night for parking. That's BS. This ain't New York City. You HAVE to have a car in St. Pete. The room charge should include parking. Nothing turns a guest off more than getting to the front desk only to discover a sleazy 10% mark up on their room!

Swim meet weekend

We were able to take the shuttle to and from the North Shore pool and avoid difficult parking at the pool. The mini fridge was a big help and there is a Publix within close walking distance. Shuttle drivers were very nice. The hotel restaurant was not great. Some front desk workers were rude and not helpful with basic requests such as shuttle pick up.

Quick getaway

We stayed in a king alcove suite and it was very nice. Extremely spacious although the bathroom was on the smaller side. The pool was very nice also!

Great Time, Courteous Staff

We booked for a local outdoor music festival. We were early for check in, so we lounged by the pool until the staff called early for the room even before the normal check in time. We'll definitely look into staying here again in the future.

Pleasantly suprised

I attended a seminar here for one day and stayed the night. Didn't really expect a lot but I must say, the facility was very nice. Mostly, I was quite impressed by the staff and their great customer service! That makes or breaks a hotel in my opinion. I would recommend for business trip.

Mixed impression

My review is based both on how comfortable was my week-long stay and on how the hotel stuff managed to resolve a problem. The hotel is very comfortably located both for St. Pete downtown shopping and restaurants, as well for walking into USF campus. Mine was a work trip so I needed to be in walking distance of both. It is reasonably comfortable - room was big and light. Less luxury than what one would expect from a continental Hilton though. Breakfast was fine, the executive lounge offered great views over the bay and the city. The pool was nice, too. Everything was a bit old, but it was nice nevertheless. My problem was that the hotel lost a package sent for me: despite that I called in advance to warn them and that I was asking every day if there may be any issue with this. It has already been a week since and there is no solution. Talking to a representative of the management has not helped. Overall, unless you need to receive stuff while there, the hotel is an option for a work stay. Personally, I will go for a boutique hotel next time.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Grab a cab to Tyrone Square Mall for shopping - 25USD trip but better shopping than downtown unless you want crafts and arts.

Hotel is recently refurbished and is located in a great city, St. Petersburg, FL. The hotel is located downtown and near the bay. Great views. The staff at hotel are very considerate and compassionate. Foods at Tangerine 's was fresh and well seasoned..
