“Best Hampton Inn we have ever stayed at!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Friendliest staff and best amenities we have ever enjoyed at a Hampton Inn. Surrounding area is beautiful and hotel is close to many restaurants and bars. Complimentary beer/wine and nibbles Mon-Thu 5pm-7pm. Highly recommended!

The manager called me in my room to make sure that all my preferences were taken care of and that I did not have any complaints about the room. The room was clean and quiet. The staff was excellent. The manager's get-together was very well done. This was a great experience.

Room Tip: When making reservations, just tell them that you want a quiet room.

Being a smaller hotel all our managers are engaged in providing an exceptional guest experience. Instaed of being hidded in the back you will often find the managers "on the front lines" and practicing what we try to install in our staff. Thank you for recognizing our efforts.

Very clean, very professional staff, very efficient; GREAT breakfast, extremely clean hotel and rooms. Everything was perfect. Valet service was excellent and efficient. Breakfast had some new items I had not seen before - nice treat to have in the morning. Staff is very friendly. Great location, within walking distance of many restaurants. Pool area is nice; was too cold to go swimming, otherwise I would have been in the pool.

Thank you for sharing your positive experience at our hotel. We do try to offer a wider variety of breakfast items than normally available (while keeping within brand standards). Feedback from our guests is what drives our innovation. Thanks again.

This hotel's location is both a benefit and draw back. It's across from a park and bay and there are many restaurants and shops just outside and in walking distance. You could comfortably walk to the Museum of Fine Arts and if ambitions even to the Dali Museum. However, there is also a very active night life in the area. The hotel was not built to shield rooms from constant street noise and loud music coming from Janus Landing - an *outdoor* music venue right across the street from the rear of the hotel. Many rooms have windows facing that part of the hotel.
The rooms in the hotel were were very dark and a bit dingy and worn. The lobby and breakfast are were nicer and they did offer a nice selection of items in the free breakfast - cereals, waffles, fruit, muffins...
Because of the outside noise which was easily heard in my room - even after midnight - I would be reluctant to stay here again.

Room was dark, depressing. Carpet had a sticky feeling if you were not wearing shoes, and had lots of age signs , including tears and strings. The airconditioner was very noisy. When it would cycle on and off it made so much noise that it would wake you up. Excellent location, loved being able to walk almost every where we went.

We're so happy you chose to stay with us and I'm glad you found our hotel convenient to the city attractions. We appreciate your suggestions on making enhancements to our property and I regret any discomfort you experienced. Our maintenance team is repairing the noisy AC unit and we're doing spot checks to all rooms so we can ensure they're in proper working condition. We hope we can have another chance to show you our improvements.

The location of this hotel is in the center of down town. The weather was a delightful 65-70 degrees, sunny and breezy. On Saturday there was a huge farmers market behind the hotel, fresh fruits and vegetables, all kinds of foods, arts and crafts. The area is so lively with outdoor cafe's, restaurants and shops. We took long walks, around the parks, the pier, the marina and the jazz festival. This hotel is truely in the center of it all.
The hotel itself has a modern clean look. The front desk staff were all friendly and pleasant. I am a gold hhonors member and booked a standard room and they recognized that and upgraded me to a king suite before I had a chance to ask. The room was clean and roomy, The room had a refrigerator, sink, counter, microwave and coffee maker with plenty of coffee and condiments. I do wish the rooms had a safe for valuables, they only had small saftey boxes at the front desk. The daily breakfast was good. Fresh waffles, fruit, breads, muffins, eggs, sausage, cereal, juices and coffee. They did have flavored creamers, kudos for that ! We attended a wedding directly across the street at the St.Pete Yacht Club, it was so convienient ! It was a great weekend and would definitely recommend this hotel and would definitely come back.

Thank you for the complimentary review of our hotel. Downtown St. Petersburg is truly a very active downtown, and we are in the middle of it all. In room safes are part of a planned upgrade later this year as we realize it is a desired feature for our guests. Thank you again.

We just spent three nights at the hotel with a large wedding contingent for our son's wedding.
Everyone at the hotel went above and beyond to accommodate our group. The valets helped us load and unload huge amounts of stuff and were so pleasant about it. Mary of the housekeeping staff was so helpful as we had so many people who needed to be getting ready at the same time.
We used the meeting room as a hospitality room for the weekend and the staff was very accommodating in cleaning it up late at night so that it would be ready in the morning for the guests to sit and eat their breakfast. The location is perfect for walking to restaurants and museums. Our out of town guests really enjoyed all that the area has to offer. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast had plenty of variety and was kept well stocked.
Thanks to all the staff for helping to make this a memorable event.
