“My Holiday Inn St. Pete Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I have stayed in this hotel a number of times and I am always very satisfied with the accommodations and with the staff. The hotel has an upscale contemporary feel and the rooms are always neat and clean. I would have given this location an excellent rating if they had more choices on their breakfast buffet. The food they serve is well prepared but I would like more fresh fruits and a better assortment of breakfast breads and danish.

I had to be in the Tampa area for job interviews. I had my children with me. We bid a room on priceline, and this is what we got. I was so very impressed with this Holiday Inn. The atmosphere was inviting. The rooms were clean. We enjoyed our stay immensely. The pool area was nice and well maintained. We enjoyed the time we spent at this location.

Found everyone on staff to be top notch for their service abilities. Will be looking forward to my next stay. The bar with very friendly service added to the over all visit. Cheers to management for picking the right staff members. Very clean and cheerful decor. Breakfast was a wonderful start to our day of fun in the Clearwater Beach Area. Try this one and you'll be glad you did.

I can't even begin to say how much we love it here! The front desk staff was so nice and even offered us free breakfast coupons because we had a terrible, delayed flight and got in 5 hours later than we were supposed to! The sports bar in the lobby was our favorite hang out! The chef even came out to check to see how we liked our meals!! The entire place is immaculate and everyone was friendly and willing to help! They even have a car rental in the hotel, which was so convenient!! My son has been to a LOT of hotels for sports over the years and claims this one is his favorite! Thanks, Bob and Staff! Keep up the great work!

Had stayed here before an was pleasantly surprised to see that the hotel had been nicely spruced up...new carpeting and appointments...the front desk greeted us with a friendly smile and had a packet for us of free drink tickets as well as breakfast coupons for each day of our stay...new staff in the bar/lounge were very friendly and efficient and had all kinds of enthusiasm...the waiter went out of his way to make sure we were happy and later the main bartender came out from the bar to our table to welcome us and make sure we were happy...haven't seen that in a long time...the room was well appointed and clean and comfortable...although I didn't like the pillows (I'm very picky about pillows)...breakfast buffet was well stocked and the wait staff friendly...overall a very nice stay.

Room Tip: bring your own pillow if you are a pillow guru

Thank you for the great review. I'm sorry to hear the pillows were not to your liking. We do offer alternatives and should have our new pillows for your next stay. We are changing the brand of pillows we currently use. So we look forward to your comments on you next stay and appreciate you letting us know ways we can make our hotel, and your stay, even better.

I frequently travel and stay in hotels several times a week...This hotel by far exceeds any expectation you could hope for during your travels...The location and staff is great, the rooms are super clean and cozy and they have a nice sports bar to unwind in after a long day to enjoy a nice beverage and watch your game on there nice flat screen t.v's...I highly recommend staying here...Thanks for giving me a great and comfortable place to stay when I'm in town!
