Romantic stay

My girlfriend is going to stay w/her fiance in st pete beach for one night. I was helping her in finding a hotel, the Grand Plaza looks very nice & I found some good rates. Any other suggestions?

You cant beat the Don CeSar for romantic, you can check in and not have to leave because they have a couple of great restaurants and little bars, my favorite is the tiki bar. The beach is nice too.

The Don is the closest thing to "over the top" SPB has. Not quite there but gorgeous pink building and the most upscale thing there. If they would like more funky/eclectic lodging look at Islands End at the tip of Pass a Grille.

BTW when I was in SPB a couple of weeks ago there is construction on the south end of the hotel (toward Pass a Grille) and it looks like they are adding a wing. I'd avoid that side because your view will be of construction.

My husband and I stayed at the Tradewinds Sandpiper in October for a VERY ROMANTIC anniversary trip.

The Sandpiper was perfect because they have an "adults only" pool and whirlpool area where no kids are allowed. Not that we don't like kids.....we have them, but when on a romantic get away, I prefer not to have to deal with anyone's children.

It was much less expensive than the Don Cesar or the Island Grand.

My wife and I recently stayed at Pasa Tiempo in St. Pete Beach (www.pasa-tiempo.com). This is in a residential area and appears to be a small apartment complex that has been converted to a B&B. Very private, adults only, and right on the intracoastal waterway. It's not a full service hotel or even all that luxurious, but it was clean, quiet, private, and within walking distance to some nice restaurants.
