“Unrivaled excellence!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

We have stayed here many times since they opened in 2003 and it has gotten better each and every year. They are constantly upgrading rooms and amenities, which is great, but the one constant is the staff, which is the best in the business.

From check-in, where we are always quickly greeted and assisted by our friend who is also a big Rays fan (I apologize, I don't recall his name, but he often works Fridays & Saturdays and always tends to all of our needs and provides the latest info on Rays chances.) He makes us feel extremely special each and every visit and often "rescues" us when we are trying to find a parking space off busy Beach Drive.
.
And, of course, there is no one in the hospitality business better than Nykisha Donato, who is the best ambassador the Hampton could every wish for! Walking in and being greeted by her friendly smile makes my wife, Mary, and I feel as if we returned to family.

We visit quite often for long baseball weekends and try to find other excuses throughout the fall for weekend getaways and the Inn's proximity to the trolley, downtown and waterfront restaurants and pubs is unmatched.

Judging by the consistently full houses, it is no longer a hidden gem, but it is truly a masterpiece in a growing area on Beach Dr. - and its staff is the reason why.
Thank you, Hampton Inn & Suites, we'll see you soon!

The valet you are referring to is Derek, our valet manager. He is a great asset to the hotel and makes sure all our guests receive competent and caring valet service. You also mentioned Nykisha, and I thank you for recognizing her personally. She is the hotel AGM and has been with us almost 7 years. Another truly authentic and caring person. Thank you again for sharing your thoughts.

We had a great time at St. Pete, FL. The hotel was great: clean, comfortable beds, and wonderful staff. We enjoyed the free afternoon drinks and the complimentary breakfast. We were close enough to walk to everything in town. We will definitely be back!!!

Great location downtown St. Pete. Close to excellent restaurants and walking distance to Trolley to take you to Tropicana Field for the game. Staff is excellent and hotel is always very clean. We have stayed here many times and you can't beat it. Best hotel in the area.

This was a lovely hotel, centrally located within walking distance to many restaurants and the marina. The room was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed the nightly snack and drinks in the lobby. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was plentiful and had a good variety of choices. We would definitly stay here again.

I had the pleasure of staying with you for July 4th, it was perfect distance to get to the park for fireworks, not very far from the Rays Stadium and perfect to get to all the bars and local restaurants!! The room was beautiful, but was kind of awkward... cant have anyone on the couch and the bed to watch tv at the same time, beyond that the property was beautiful and spacious.

Room Tip: Valet was expensive, there is a $4 lot across the street (except on event days then its $10)

We are glad you enjoyed the holiday weekend. The city of St Petersburg does a fantastic job every fourth of July. Fireworks, entertainment, family activities and on and on. We hope to see you again next year. Thanks

Great location in downtown st Pete. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Check in was very pleasant. Food and beverage was served in mornings for breakfast and 5 to 7 late afternoon. Bettor than the typical Hampton inn food.great park across street and lots of restaurants to pick from. One thing I didn't understand was pool was closed for tile repairs on 4th July week. But, didn't bother us plenty things to do in st Pete. I would stay here again.

Thank you for the kind review. We had an unexpected issue with the pool during the early part of the week. This was a safety issue, so we felt compelled to make the necessary repairs for the safety of our guests over the holiday weekend. I am glad you were able to find alternate activities and enjoy your stay. Thanks again.
