I was very impressed with the pix I received before we came into town. The lobby was magnificent and beautifully decorated, as I had anticipated. We retrieved our keys and headed for our room. When we walked in, we noticed how un-unique the room decor/layout was. The website had said each room uniquely decorated, and they were pure white and... More

The best part about this place is the front porch. Since the rooms was clean, in my case, but so oppressively stark, and downtrodden, it's the only place to sit. Room didn't even have a chair to sit in. The rooms are off of long hallways, painted a pale institutional green. Decor is lacking to say the least. Towels are... More

I found this hotel to be a great value in downtown St. Petersburg. It is very quaint and the staff is very friendly. While it is not a luxery hotel, it is clean and very well located. It also has a great restaurant where you can dine in a garden, on the veranda or in the quaint dining room.

We were so excited to stumble on this charming hotel while walking in downtown St. Petersburg. After stopping in several other downtown hotels to check them out, we decided the Colonial Hotel had just the right feel we wanted. Nothing like a chain property, this establishment feels like an old European boutique hotel. Hardwood floors throughout, a fantastic front porch... More

This hotel, also called the "Historic Colonial Inn & Spa" is to be avoided. I needed to stay in downtown St. Pete, which can be pricey, and this hotel offered excellent rates. It's in a fantastic location, attractive on the outside, and has a friendly and helpful front desk staff. That's the good part. The bad part is that the... More
