“Great location, nice hotel, friendly staff!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

We're locals but decided to stay the night here to be close to an early-morning event on weekend. We love the Beach Dr./downtown St. Pete area so being located in the heart of it was like being on vacation. Upon arrival, we were surprised to find we'd been upgraded to a nicer room and as it turned out, it had a private balcony over looking Beach Dr. That was a very nice surprise! The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, the valet parking (which I highly recommend given how hard it can be to find a parking spot in that area on the weekend) attendants were friendly and welcoming, all in all everyone was just wonderful. The room itself was nice and clean and appointed with all the usual amenities of a mid-range hotel.

We're very glad we made the choice we did, had a very enjoyable stay and would happily recommend this as a place for people visiting the area who want to be within easy walking distance of all the dining, museums and sights that downtown St. Pete has to offer.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Beach might be a little bit noisier but overall, this is a very quiet hotel.

Great to get a response from a local resident. We are not just for individuals from far away, but we can be a perfect place for a quick weekend getaway as well. With all the events in downtown St Pete year-round, we always recommend staying here and experiencing the lovely downtown area to its fullest. Thanks for the positive review and we hope you will stay again in the near future.

I've stayed in a lot of Hilton hotels & this one didn't disappoint. This hotel is in a great location just across from a small part & the yacht club. There are upscale shops and restaurants on the block and a grocery store within walking distance. I felt comfortable taking early morning and late evening walks alone. My room was clean and comfortable & i've recommended this location to co-workers who are returning to st pete.

Stayed here for 6 nights on a vacation. Our first time staying in St. Petersburg. Great location - right downtown - easy walk to the pier and waterfront - the downtown area is alive with activity at night - great restaurants, bars, etc. Felt very comfortable and safe walking the area.

The hotel itself is very nice. Adequate size rooms, VERY quiet, free wifi, great breakfast, evening happy hour from 5-7 PM Mon-Thurs, VERY friendly staff. Our only complaint - and the reason the hotel didn't get a 5 - is parking. The only parking available is valet at $14 per day for overnight guests. There is no self-park option. I suppose $14 dollars isn't too bad compared to some places, but it is a hassle to wait to remember to call well in advance of when you need your car or have to stand around waiting while it is retrieved. While all of the valet folks were nice, having them standing there waiting for their tip when you drop off and pick up get annoying....especially when you are in and out several times during the day.

Other than the hassle with parking, highly recommend this hotel if you need a spot in downtown St. Pete.

Thank you for your candid observations and opinions.

Although we would love to provide free self service parking, it is just not an option in our area. The hotel has very limited on-site parking. Therefore we need to utilize a variety of parking strategies that require the use of a professional valet company. We strive to make this service an added benefit , allowing you the convenience of just pulling the car up front when you arrive and picking it back up when you depart!

Thanks again for your comments.

Hampton Inn is a favorite for business travelers because it has free wifi, great business service with printer. It had good breakfast. This one was particularly great due to its location. It is walking distance to great restaurants, walking distance to Dali Museum as well as Fine Arts Museum, Saturday Market was a surprise. Also Friday nights they close the close by street to traffic for all night party. There was also an event call "Tap and Run", which was practically in front of the hotel for more fun. The staff was always helpful.

This Hampton Inn is located near some wonderful restaurants and within walking distance of Chihuly's gallery. The breakfast is the typically tasty fare offered by Hampton Inns, too. Staff was pleasant and rooms were spotless. I'm planning to stay there again.

Room Tip: I had a corner room in the back.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and impressions. The Saturday market is something I often overlook, but it is a nice way to spend a Saturday outside and it's only 1 block from the hotel. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit.
