The Birchwood is in a prime location for anyone wanting to visit the newly revitalized downtown St. Petersburg. As Florida resident for over 28 years I was shocked to see the change in this city. The Birchwood is a great location to explore and enjoy. This new 18 room boutique hotel was trendy and chic. clean and comfortable. There is a noise issue due to the size of the hotel and it being one of the hottest spots in town. However, it was not a problem for us. Breakfast included is a nice touch. Parking is an issue here and is valet only. Once your are here, your car can rest as there is plenty to do in the area within walking distance. Museums, galleries, shopping, sailing, even a small beach on the shores of the bay.
There are two restaurants at this small place plus they have spots for larger gatherings The Canopy lounge is the coolest place, hands down, as they made great use of their roof top with prime views of Tampa Bay, fire pits, couches and casual seating. The Birch and Vine Restaurant is top notch with great service and interesting food combinations. Once again, great outdoor seating and people watching. A place for foodies!
Big recommend on this one.
