“Home Away from Home in Saint Pete !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

180+ nights a year on the road and if I was going to name my top 10 stays this would be at the top of the list. All the amenities you could ask for at a price you can't believe. The hotel is a historic 1930's building that the new owners have painstakingly restored. The staff genuinely cares about you personally, from the busboy to the GM. Will at the front desk was phenominal in accommodating my erratic schedule while always making me feel welcome, Nick and the staff at the tap room were always on the spot even with a lively crowd, and they also have an excellent coffee bar for your morning shot! Live entertainment that was surprisingly good for such an intimate venue and yet managed not to interfere with getting a good night's rest. The location couldn't be better for exploring all downtown Saint Pete has to offer. Now if I can just figure out how to get back there on vacation........

We stayed for four nights at the Hollander Hotel in downtown St. Pete. It was tastefully decorated to match the 1930 style in which it was constructed. It is a local favorite, and the place was filled each evening, but comfortably so. On Tuesdays they have a $3.00 special on pints of beer, and there are a number of craft beers on tap - 20 or so. Their menu is reasonable, and everything was delicious. There is a gormet coffee shop downstairs with a new coffee each morning. The staff was friendly, interesting, and very accomodating. The only cautionary note is that the surrounding neighborhood isn't that great, so don't leave any valuables in your car.

Stayed for 2nights & was highly delighted with this modern Boutique Hotel, room was a bit small but very comfortable and cosy. All staff were very friendly, especially in the bar restaurant, it's obviously the 'in' place in St Petersburg, they were very busy at night, but nothing was too much trouble, the staff all worked very hard and kept smiling. Food was very good & reasonably priced. Would definately recommend and hopefully return soon. Also good location for downtown St Petersburg.

Room Tip: Stayed on the second floor, & didn't hear any noise from the downstairs bar/ restaurant whic...

Just had a great two days at the Hollander Hotel! The whole hotel is a great experience - from the well-appointed rooms to the charming lobby and delicious food. I had a grouper that was the freshest I have ever tasted. Compared to the fishy-tasting grouper I had at the Vinoy the next day - there is no contest. The staff is friendly and helpful too. Can't wait for my next stay!

My mom and I spent nine nights at the Hollander recently and loved it! I found this place through vrbo.com and got a great deal. I love the hardwood floors, tiles and decor, and set of pictures along the stairways. My mom and I shared a room on the third floor and it was not spacious, but plenty comfortable. Will at the front desk is so very friendly and everyone is willing to help out answering questions. The Tap Room has live entertainment every night, and the music is varied and fun. Great place to spend a few hours at night. The best place in the morning, however, is out on the front porch in the sunshine. Plus, the hotel is in easy walkable distance from everything downtown. I would definitely stay here again on a visit to St. Pete!

Having read the Trip Advisor reviews we were looking forward to the night we booked at the Hollander. Always nice to get away from the chain hotels and the idea of a quirky recently renovated hotel appealed.

The Hollander has potential and if a few more dollars had been spent on the renovations it would have been money well spent. Our room was small, the bed uncomfortable (and small) and the bathroom did not even have basic services such as tissues. The workmanship on the renovations was poor.

Breakfast seemed disorganised, with limited choice and delays. Having to order coffee in the separately run coffee shop is less than desirable. Aside from the small car park behind the hotel the adjacent parking area is simply an empty block but we did find a place once we told that was where we should park.

We enjoyed the area around St Pete and the waterfront areas are enjoyable with a good range of restaurants.

This was the only reasonably priced hotel I could find in the downtown St Petersburg area. It was about 3 times less expensive than some of the neighboring hotels. This is a restored older hotel with hardfloors and some older tubs, showers, closets, etc. The hardwood amplifies foot traffic a little. The room I had was adjacent to 4th avenue which provides some noise early in the morning due to traffic. The other rooms our down the hall from the road so are probably better. There is a bar/restaurant downstairs that had live music until 10 pm or so which a lot of people seemed to be enjoying. There is free parking and internet which was good. The bed was very comfortable. I used the hotel as a bedroom and walked to the harbor area for meeting each day which was exactly what I needed. I liked the hotel and would stay there again. I believe there is a exercise area but did not use it.

Room Tip: Try not to get the room facing 4th Avenue or near the bar/restaurant.
