“Great for location, rooms less impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Walking into the Hollander Hotel was a big surprise: the place was alive with music, people and the bustle of a good time. The front desk welcome could not have been warmer, and sitting in the lobby and on the front porch was a pleasure. The hotel is within easy walking distance to downtown restaurants and local attractions. Our room, however, was somewhat disappointing. We stayed in the "newer" hall of the hotel, over the coffee shop and facing the street. It was extremely noisy the first night, which was a Friday. The second night was much better except for some loud footsteps overhead. Our floor was tiled, and I wonder if the "older" section is more sound-proof. The bed was comfortable, the room and bath clean, and the rate very good. I'd stay here again but would make sure I asked for a room away from the street in the older building.

We found this hotel on trip advisor when all other hotels we checked out were full. The Tap Room had good food that was reasonably priced. We enjoyed dinner and breakfast on the front porch. The rooms were small with no phones, but just fine as we were only there for one night. The people working at the desk were very helpful and friendly as were the waitresses. Overall, we liked this hotel and would go back. Our only complaint was a group of people who partied in the halls until after 3:00 AM. We did share this with the desk people who said they had received other complaints about this.

Tap room was great fun, but rooms left a bit to be desired; sparsely furnished and not very well provisioned. However we enjoyed our 2 night stay as the tap room had great craft beers, food and atmosphere. They only do breakfast on Sat/Sun however staff recommended Central Cafe which was great and walkable. Parking is tight. Bit far to walk to main attractions, but you can get a 50c trolley ride which loops past everything of interest.

Great value, very clean, friendly!
Close to everything St.Pete. Will stay again!
The food and beer at the Tap room hit the spot.
Great 1933 hotel all renovated, and the front porch is a great place to relax.

The location of this hotel was perfect for the job we came to do. The proprietors have obviously worked very hard (and are still working) to make a success of the business. The lobby, bar, restaurant, and coffee shop downstairs were beautiful. The employees we encountered were very friendly and helpful and eager to please.
That said, there were a few issues with the room. Most of them were minor, but one troubled us deeply. The rooms are very small and the walls thin. The last night or two, the sound of the people in the room above us made sleeping difficult. No tissues in the room, no wastebasket in the bathroom, no hair dryer (one was provided when we asked, but didn't work very well). Parking was often difficult, especially on weekends. The grassy area is usually fine, except that, of course, it was muddy after a rain, and when it was crowded it was difficult to navigate through the haphazardly parked cars. We were almost completely parked in the morning we had to leave to catch our flight home.
Our major problem was that on the second night we discovered that half of my husband's prescription medication was missing. We told the manager, who was very concerned and was going to investigate and get back to us about the matter. We never heard back from him. The rest of our visit was a little uncomfortable, since after that we no longer felt that our belongings were safe in the room when we went out.

This hotel was everything people wrote. It was nice and quaint, quiet, and fantastic! I found this hotel on a hotel search trying to find something that wasn't a typical chain hotel for just a night stay for a birthday getaway. The hotel was adorable with it's old feel. Thank you Hollander Hotel for a great night stay. We will be staying here again.

We stayed here for one night since our vacation rental was only ready the next day. I had read the positive reviews so I figured we couldn't go wrong. We were not disappointed. Very cute and quaint hotel with a lovely bar, coffee shop and great veranda - also live music. The staff is very friendly. We checked in around 9 p.m. and immediately went down to the bar to order food. Suzie the waitress was very friendly. Had the pizza (Marguerita, I think) and it was very good. The next morning we went to the coffee bar and had great coffee and muffin. Brigitte sure knows her coffee. We were told that this place had been closed for 10 years and just reopened 2 yrs. ago - very nice boutique hotel (which we usually prefer from chain hotels). The only down side is the size of the rooms but if we had stayed longer, we would have asked for a larger suite which I think they have but not sure. Will def return.
