Vintage hotel in central location. Easy walking to restaurants. The good is the friendly staff, especially Kayla at the front desk. Particularly liked the Porch. Breakfast buffet and weekend wine hour were nice. The not so good is the smell of the room. Old St. Petersburg... likely mold. I did not get room service despite putting sign out for service on a Sunday. They did correct that on Monday. The lock on my door was glitchy and took usually 5 minutes to open....Bathrooms are Lilliputian. The window AC unit is anemic at best. Parking next door lot is not free and fills up on weekends. The front desk shuts down at 8 pm. I did not meet any of the reputed ghosts. There are only stairs but the staff is willing to carry your bags up. Best for a single night. Hard for a longer stay.

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
Hotel is over 100 years old so take that into consideration. We had a lovely stay with a large room, King size bed, refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. Could have used a chair in room to sit and lamp on both bedside tables. Very nice place. Employees were very willing to help. We stayed on second floor and no elevator so desk attendants helped us carry our bags. Wifi worked good. Breakfast was nice and good variety of muffins, yogurt, hard eggs, and cereal. Coffee was good.

We were impressed by how friendly the staffs are. The location is great for downtown St.Peterburge. The room that we stayed was not big but we were ok with it. The room was clean and served the purpose.

Charming place, location is perfect, walking distance to restaurants and art galleries/museums. The staff was welcoming and helpful. The breakfast needed more options. I suggest to replace the room carpets with laminate flooring. The Saturday day cheese n wine was a nice touch as well the rocking chairs outside.
