“right on trolley line! Very helpful personnel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Friendly staff, clean rooms, wonderful breakfast with a full variety of foods. Right on the "looper" downtown trolley line and within less than a block of restaurants and a starbucks. What a find! Comfortable bedding as in all Hampton Inns and QUIET despite a full house. Nice pool on the 2nd floor so it feels private.

Room Tip: If you want to view the marina, you might want a higher floor. But it is very quiet.

Thank you for sharing. We are definitely the most conveniently located hotel in downtown St. Petersburg. Once you arrive, the car is rarely needed.
So, we have the location, our job is to provide the service and we strive to do so every day. Thanks again for recognizing this.

We stayed here July 3 and picked this location because we were going to a Yankees game at Tropicana Field. It was about a mile away and the stadium offered free transportation that was quick and hardly no wait with a pickup/ drop off location a block from the hotel. Also many great restaurants all within a few blocks, along with Starbucks and a movie theater. We ate at Angie's after the game and it was a cute little small restaurant with great food.

We arrived early and were greeted by a friendly valet to park our car. Not sure if you can park for free or not but we choose valet for $14 overnight- I think this is city mandated so no getting around it. Didn't need our car for anything else once we unloaded-as I stated above, everything you might need is within walking distance of a developed downtown area.

Front desk agent Andrew was very quick at check in and super friendly! :) The GM was also around to greet guests and shows this hotel really cares about their guest experience.

We were traveling with kids and the front desk was accomdating and were able to give us connecting rooms so we had a nice spacious king and the kids had their own room too. ( thank you for this!!!). I'm a clean freak and tend to look over a room before we set our bags down and this room was spotless. Great job to the housekeeping staff.

The hotel was very busy with the baseball game and the hotel was always clean. We had time to kill and enjoyed the pool for the afternoon before the game. I am not sure what the review below here was talking about as it seems we were here at the same time and we thoroughly enjoyed the pool and found the deck clean and towels fully stocked. I also had one picture of the pool so posting it just to show it was clean!

The water pressure was nice which is something I always look for in a hotel and the bathroom had plenty of room to move around.

Hotel also offered an evening managers reception which was a nice touch before the game. Not sure if this is every day but we enjoyed it.

We missed breakfast because we decided to sleep in, probably bc the bed was so comfy and ac so cold! Will definitely be back to this hotel for another NYY game.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. Of course, we feel that our hotel is THE place to stay whenever the Rays are at home. The city shuttle to the games is very convenient (and free!) and only a five minute ride to the stadium. Then after the game return to our little sanctuary that is within walking distance to almost everything else you'll want to do while in St Pete.

Went to downtown, St. Petersburg Hampton Inn and Suites for the third time on a 4th of July to enjoy Activities and Fireworks. The hotel is recently remodeled and is in really good condition with a wonderful location and free breakfast.
Unfortunately, I can't say that about the Pool Deck and Swimming Pool itself. The tile in the pool is actually dirty and really uninviting-the deck is dirty as well and needs some cleaning and power washing. The Pool is a "big draw" in the summer and needs to be addressed!

Room Tip: Choose a 2nd or 3rd floor Terrace room if you would like a waterview and Fireworks Display on the 4...

We are the ones who should apologize. We truly value your repeat business and loyalty. To find our pool area in any condition less than very inviting is dissapointing for you and for us. I thank you for bringing this to my attention and I can assure you that we will be more dilligent in the upkeep of this critical area. Thanks again.

I recently visited St. Petersburg for a friends wedding with three of my girlfriends. We had stayed at a beach hotel on St. Pete's beach for a few nights, which was less then desirable, before staying here. And what a vast and impressive change it was. We walked into a clean, modern hotel. The staff was great and helped whenever we needed anything in a very timely manner. It was located with-in walking distance to all of the weekend gatherings set up by the bride and groom, as well as very convenient for night life (aka the bars :) They had our car ready for us quickly whenever we needed to use it, the rooms were very nice and the beds so comfortable. One of the best amenities of this hotel is their complementary breakfasts. There were new hot items for the three breakfasts we ate there, as well as, a great assortment of other breakfast food. I really enjoyed my stay in downtown St. Petersburg and a stay in a hotel like this made it all the better. If visiting St. Petersburg I would not go anywhere else. Stay here!

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am always excited when a guest specifically denotes an individual or department that made a positive impression. Our attendants work very hard in the breakfast area and I will certainly let them know you appreciated their efforts.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
