“Amazing rooms and friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

This is by far my favorite hotel from all of my travels. I love staying here! It's a great place to stay in the middle of a busy part of town. For business travelers, its a great place to feel like you are on vacation with a little bit of work added! The restaurant in the lobby is premium.

Although we are local, we chose this hotel for our honeymoon. We have always heard good things about it and got to experience that for ourselves. The staff was very pleasant, the decor was stunning. We had a great experience from the moment we got out of our car till we left the next day.

We typically stay at luxury hotels (i.e. Four Seasons, St. Regis) and were not sure what to expect from a Hilton. We ended up being very pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable our stay was. No one asks to help you with your bags, show you to your room, or park your car (there is a self-parking lot) so you will not be spending a lot in tips. The front desk person was very welcoming and a room was immediately available when we arrived several hours before the normal check-in time. The hotel and grounds were extremely clean and nicely landscaped. However, in my opinion the pool did not look pristine and I never saw any pool attendants or service at the pool. For the entire 3 days we were there I actually only saw the same 1 person sitting by the pool and a couple of other people sitting in the patio area. The furniture and area rugs in the lobby looked slightly tired but overall the lobby was clean and mostly businesslike. Our room was spotless and had newer looking furniture in excellent shape, a large flat screen TV, a small refrigerator (which froze all our water bottles and food ) and excellent bed linens and towels. Bed was very comfortable. The bathroom had a large marble counter top and a shower/tub combination. The shower curtain and mats were spotless but the shower water pressure was a bit weak and the sink drained a bit slowly. Water bottles were not provided in the room but there was complimentary water and coffee in the lobby in the morning and an in room coffee maker. We ate at the hotel restaurant (Luna) for several meals and service was excellent. There are regular menus and the option of a buffet for breakfast and lunch. The breakfast buffet was average but I thought the lunch buffet ($16 plus beverage and tip) was excellent (lots of interesting fresh salad options, several hot dishes, desserts, etc). There is also a free hotel shuttle that will take you to local establishments and back. Most of the area eateries are fast food/casual dining places like Panera, Cracker Barrel, Starbucks, and there is a decent bar/restaurant within the office complex. There is also a large supermarket close to the hotel and a CVS a few minutes away but really no other shopping or attractions close by. The walkway around the lake is very nice and you can see lots of fish and occasionally turtles. If we were in the Tampa/St Pete area again I would definitely stay here again.

Sayed here in Late March 2013 on Spring Break with my two kids and husband. My husband was working in St. Pete, so I can't really evaluate the value as it was paid for by his company. The hotel was clean and comfortable and had a very nice concierge room for Honors members. It was conveniently located for our trip to see Winter the Dolphin in Clearwater. It was a long slow drive to Busch Gardens in rush hour traffic. The hotel definitely caters to the business crowd vs vacationers. The pool seemed nice, but it was unseasonably cold during our visit so we didn't swim.. We did see kids swimming in the mid-50 degree weather, so the water must be very well heated! My husband has been staying in this hotel almost weekly for the past four or five months. The Bayfront Hilton was the Hotel his company had originally booked his team in, but switched to Carillon Park after the first week. They've been very pleased with the hotel. I will be taking my kids to stay with him again in a few weeks. Again, it's great for business,but It probably wouldn't be my first choice location-wise for family vacation activities.

The hotel facilities are great but the staff was very unfriendly and unpleasant. Upon entering I felt unwelcomed and was not greeted. My husband, brother, and I checked into the hotel seperately and all experienced the same unwelcoming vibe.

A great hotel for business during the week, and couples at the weekend. Great staff treat you like royalty, the rooms well equipped and very clean. Bed is the comfiest I have ever slept on. Linen's are crisp and clean.
