As one might expect with a three star property, there were some hits and some misses. We didn't want a cookie cutter room at a chain hotel, so we were prepared for some ups and downs, and that's what we go. We stayed for a week while visiting St Petersburg. The location is great, easy walk to all of the attractions, restaurants, and shops downtown. We had a king suite - which is a misleading name. It was one smallish room with a king bed and a sleeper sofa. The microwave was stacked on the bar fridge. There was very little place to put things away - the closet was perhaps 30 inches wide with one low hanging rod - accessible to someone wheelchair bound, but left our clothes touching the floor and no spot for shoes or suitcases. Lack of a dresser was frustrating over a seven night stay. The bed was very comfortable, and we slept well. The pool was a disappointment, it was small and didn't seem too clean - and was right off limits for us once we saw a guest bring her dog in for a swim - disgusting. Water pressure in the shower was at times so low as to make it impossible to shower. The front porch was a nice spot - but unfortunately it was the hangout for smokers and all of the furniture smelled of cigarettes and cigars. One bar table is place out on a small piece of the porch that juts out and gets a good breeze - it was the only spot that didn't smell strongly of smokers. The staff were friendly, and the relaxed vibe was pleasant. We did not eat any meals at the hotel, there are too many interesting cafes and restaurants nearby.
