This hotel has certainly made an old place new, in a way that respects the past but showcases the present. The old details, like heavy plastering, mosaic bathroom tiles, beautiful doors, trims and hardware stand in contrast to the funky, fun colors, textiles and decor....I loved it. Check in was fast, there is easy and plentiful FREE parking (this can save you a bundle in St Pete), and a large lobby with lots of space to kick back. We did not eat or drink there so I can't comment on the food, but the bar looked nice. Our room was plenty big for our needs. The inspired decor did not disappoint! The bathroom, though small, had two well placed mirrors so that my girlfriend and I could both be in there getting ready at the same time. There was a long, narrow shelf which gave us ample room to store our toiletries. Very comfortable beds. Nice large window affording ample natural light.
One drawback is that the floors are wood laminate, which I appreciate, but I think may have contributed to noise from the guests above us. They got up early and the clomping around over our heads did wake us up. There is also a large construction project going on across the street from the hotel entrance. It was a bit windy and we got totally dirt blasted on our way in. Parking is to the side and back of the hotel, so once we knew that, we just didn't go in and out the front door any more. The construction is an eyesore and for now I wouldn't want to spend time on the charming front porch, but once it is done am sure it will be beautiful. We did have to pay an exorbitant price for the room as it was Blues Fest weekend. But that was true everywhere.
If I had reason to be in the area again, I would stay again.
