I wanted to stay a few nights at St. Pete Beach and decided to give this hotel a try based on the good reviews. I arrived as a walk-in guest and due that the hotel wasn’t full I got a special price. They showed me two different types of rooms and I decided to splurge and took a Beachfront Suite with two private balconies, located on the top floor. It was really worth it.
The two rooms were spacious, bright, very comfortable and the view on the Gulf of Mexico with amazing sunsets just spectacular. Some of the furniture, e.g. couch, could be replaced and the bathroom could use an update but nothing to really complain about. I liked it so much that I prolonged my stay from three to five nights.
The hotel is specialized in weddings and it is truly a romantic place to get wed.
Maybe because it wasn’t high season, beside the weekend the hotel was very quiet and peaceful.
I tried the Spinners Rooftop Revolving restaurant and I liked it, even if it’s a bit pricey, on weekends a reservation is recommended. There are a few more moderate restaurants in walking distance, which are more appropriate for families and also very good.
There is a PC in the lobby for the ones without a laptop. At the beginning I was told that it was against payment but actually I and other guests were able to use it all the time for free, which I really appreciated.
If I happen to be in the area I would stay here again for sure.
