My wife and I stayed two nights for a little R&R. I can say that I really had a very peaceful time while there. Granted we did not eat, but the on-site Starbucks was nice in the morning. The beds were great and overall the noise was very limited. We did get missed by housekeeping for room make-up. Girl never... More

I hope we were able to fix the clog in your sink, and I am very sorry if the guest parking fee was not properly explained at check in. As far as the 40 dollars extra is concerned; it is not a change in the rate, merely... More

I had an excellent stay. The Hilton staff were all friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and quiet. I was on the 15th floor which gave me access to the executive lounge. This provided a good breakfast, an evening reception and snacks throughout the day.

We come to St Petersburg a few times a year to attend Rays games. The Hilton is by far the closest hotel to Tropicana Field. We had a bad experience last year at this hotel but thought we'd give it another try this year. We didn't buy the baseball package after being stranded at Tropicana Field at 11 PM last... More

We arrived mid-afternoon to take advantage of the baseball package to the Rays game. The hotel was a zoo upon arrival...hard to park in the front, hotel parking lot filled & a wait to check in. We assumed that the shuttle to Tropicana Field was part of the package, but this was for everyone going to the game. Almost all... More

Unauthorized charges all around. After paying for my stay, $16 dollars to SELF PARK, terrible bar service and being charged $50 for a sub par breakfast I checked my account online and found I had been charged another $70 dollars. I have left messages to find out what this was for. You have to wait for someone to call you... More

This wasn't as bad a Hilton as some reviews stated. They have definitely tried to dress up an older Hilton and at times it seems like lipstick on a pig. Bathroom was really small in regular room with some significant moisture related ceiling damage and rust ALL over towel holder in shower. Also, shower handle was about to come off... More
