4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Very clean hotel. Room good. Internet good and effective. Air Con not as effective as should be. Good location for what I needed. Breakfast good. Easy printing of boarding pass.
Am not sure what else can be said as this was a two day visit purely for business reasons therefore limited time at hotel

10. Location, location, location!!! So much to do and see within walking distance to this lovely hotel. Or hop on the Looper Trolley right outside the building and take a tour of the area.

9. Super clean rooms and the most comfortable beds and pillows. Best away-from-home sleeps EVER!!!

8. DVD and Board games on loan anytime of day/night....Great FREE entertainment alternative.

7. Free breakfasts with healthy choices-yogurt, fruit, wheat toast, as well as waffles cereals etc. Also To Go bags at front desk if you miss breakfast or are in a hurry to get out in the sunshine!

6.Evening reception from 5pm-7pm on Mondays to Thursdays. A nice relaxing option after a busy day of sightseeing. Beer, wine, pop and appetizers & dessert is offered.

5. Lovely courtyard pool, exercise room and laundry facilites on the 2nd floor.

4. Tuck shop that's opened 24/7...in case you need a chocolate bar or headache remedy at 4am...

3. Reasonable priced valet parking with a friendly and hardworking staff (Patrick, Derek, Chris, Ryan) .

2. Recycling program-Finally-a hotel that gives their guests the opportunity to make the world a cleaner, better place!!! Its about time we all pitch in...thanks Hampton for giving us the choice!!

And the #1. reason why we returned to the Hampton Inn and Suites St Petersburg Downtown-
The Outstanding Staff and Management!!!
Everyone, from the wonderful housekeeping staff (Gloria, Susan, Crystal and Lara to name a few) to the lovely dining room ladies ( many thanks to Irene for being so terrific, and to Donna for working so hard and being so cheerful, even at 4am) and to the worlds BEST front desk staff: Cool, calm Cobi, an angel named Angelique, phone chaser and kleenex giver Andrew, information expert and fellow- foodie Nykeisha and all the others who work very hard but make it look like its effortless and so much fun!!! You made our holidays very enjoyable and memorable.....so for sure....we'll be back....

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, request a quiet room.

Our own "top ten" list. A great review and a great idea (a similar version may appear in future marketing material!). Seriously, I am humbled and appreciative of all your wonderful comments. The expectations now have been set very high, so I had better get back to work and make sure all our guests are equally impressed. Thank you.

It is a good hotel, and just what you expect from a Hampton Inn. The staff however, was amazing. They consistently went above and beyond to make our stay fantastic. From the front desk to the cleaning staff to the valet service, everyone was very pleasant. The hotel is in a great location and close to all the bars and food you could want in downtown St. Pete.

Thank you for taking the time to recognize the efforts of our staff. We have a very tenured staff (notice the years of service pins) and they do a great job of imparting our company service values to the newer staff members. I truly feel that most staff members enjoy their jobs and it shows in the level of service displayed. Thanks again.

I can tell that everything was great at Hampton Inn and Suites. The bedrooms were extremely clean, very good sized, with nice furniture. I used the laundry facilities and they're very good and inexpensive (1 dolar each - washing - drying). Good breakfast and manager's reception. The location is marvelous, downtown, near the pier, the Dali museum. I'd sure recomend and stay there again.

We stayed here two nights to visit family and sight see. We loved the location, valet was very pleasant and our car was kept safe & was ready as soon as we needed it. The room was comfortable however lacked an exhaust fan in the bathroom and both the toilet & tub had trouble draining. The staff was very friendly, breakfast was good except it lacked any child friendly cereals. Our only dislikes were the constant car alarms at night, noise from a party in the banquet hall went well into the second night and housekeeping vacuuming the hallways & knocking on guest doors at 8am on a Saturday morning was not appreciated. Make sure you put your privacy sign out!!!!!

Room Tip: Try to get a room towards the back away from the street front.

We appreciate your review and comments. Being a downtown hotel you will occassionally get more of the "sights and sounds" of the big city than appreciated, but I will certainly address the issues mentioned that I can help control. Again, thank you for taking the time to share.

Stayed here to attend the St Pete Beef O'Brady's Bowl. Beautiful hotel and a great location near the bay and near other activities. Only a couple of miles from the Trop, and right around the corner and easy walking distance from an excellent craft beer bar (The Ale & The Witch). Staff was very friendly. Room was nice, but thought it was odd to have a mini kitchenette type of setup in the suite with a mini-refrigerator, sink and microwave, but no table in the room at which to eat & drink. Pretty lobby and breakfast area. Multiple coffee choices available in the lobby, Comfortable bed and plenty of pillows. Very clean. I don't like to have to valet my car ($14/day and NOT optional), but the valet was fast and friendly. Friendly housekeeping staff and pleased to report that we left a small item in the room and the housekeeper came down and gave it to us as we were checking out!

Breakfast setup was typical Hampton, I guess. The good: great waffle maker, boiled eggs, yogurt, cereals, oatmeal, juices, milk, coffee, bagels etc. The bad: Creativity gone wrong. No typical breakfast meat (sausage patties or links, ham or bacon)... instead there was some kind of kielbasa chunks or something. No plain scrambled eggs... some tuttie-fruitie looking fake omelettes with cheese goo in it. No "normal" breakfast potatoes... something with cheese and potato glued to a bagel half. Not enough seating, but that's understandable when it's an area that goes unused for most of the day. We took our breakfast up to our room since there was nowhere to sit (here's where a small table would have come in handy rather than trying to balance our breakfast on our laps while sitting on the sofa in the suite).

All in all, it's a really nice hotel in a very nice area. Except for the items I mentioned, it will impress you, and you may even like their weird breakfast items. :-)

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. There are rumours circulating the Hampton Brand is working on updating the breakfast options at all Hampton hotels. I hope you are an Hhonors member so the brand can keep you updated. Thanks again for the positive comments.

This was my first stay at a Hampton Inn and I must say it was a very good stay. Being here on business means you have business and personal needs that must be met so that you can do your work comfortably. The valet service was very accomodating to my needs as were the staff. The dining area is not to be believed! You have the option of sitting at a table or at a couch or on a stool. Breakfast was great as you had many choices from fruit to oatmeal to eggs and some sort of breakfast meat to making your own very tasty waffle. And let's not forget the yogurt and pastries! And then there's the happy hour buffet! Amazing, and in a very comfortable atmosphere. The room itself was very conducive to being productive...or just relaxing. All in all, a very good 3 days. For my next vacation, Hampton Inn will be my hotel of choice. Here's to a long lasting relationship!

I am very pleased that your first impression of Hampton Inn & Suites was so positive. I have worked for several hotel brands and the Hampton Brand has always been a strong & innovative brand that delivers on service and product. Of course, we like to think we are one of the "better" Hamptons in the country, but we will let you decide. Thank you.
