“Best hotel experience in a long time”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

The hotel staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and the complimentary breakfast was excellent. The evening drinks and snack were a great touch.

The free laundry completely blew me away. I would recommend this hotel to any family staying at a place longer than one night.

A new hotel. New Staybridge interior design. Very helpfull and smiling personel. Close to the baseball stadium. Highly recommended.

Also close to interesting attractions as Dali expo, Holocauste museum and many nice parks.

We did more than 20 Staybridge in the US. This one is among the best for sure.

This hotel is AWESOME.Great staff. Everyone I meet ar the hotel was very welcomeing. Chris in maintenance was so nice and helpful. Everytime we meet he was always smileing and ask if everything was ok. Victoria at the front desk is the type of person that everyone should meet on arrival. This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. I will be back.

Hotel was new and in good condition, but there is evidence already that the housekeeping staff needs to do a better job. There is black mold growing in the shower grout and the windows and mirror in our room were filthy with kids dirty fingerprints. I hope they improve because this is a good location to stay when visiting family. The overhead light still had the packing plastic on it. More attention to the details is definitely needed. Staff was very friendly but there was a backup at the front desk due to new untrained employees. Out of date (by almost a month)yogurt served at breakfast.

Dear cajunsx2,

Thank you for taking the time to give us valuable feedback. We are disappointed to learn that your room was not in inspected and clean condition. As a new hotel we have not found any mold or mildew in the hotel so we would like to get further information on what room you stayed in so that we can follow up.

We do conduct weekly random inspections so we will most definitely discuss your comments as a team. Additionally, though we order food twice weekly we will review our procedures on checking dates on the items we receive from our vendor.

Please contact me directly at the hotel so that I can get more details on your stay with us and make up for our miscues. I know we can do better.

Sincerely,

Stephen Nunez
General Manager

I stayed at this hotel mainly due to the competitive rate compared to other hotels that are located in the downtown area. Although the location is not in the central downtown area, it is only a few minutes drive away and it is easy to find metered parking or a public garage downtown. It would only take about 15-20 minutes to walk to the downtown area if it is not too hot.The hotel is new, clean and has excellent facilities. The fitness center has all of the necessary equipment for a good workout. The pool is nice and is fronted on three sides by the hotel and away from the highway. The room was large and had a kitchen (no oven) including a full size fridge. The staff was outstanding. The breakfast is small, but has the essentials. It was also nice to eat breakfast outside near the pool. There is an evening happy hour with beer and wine, but I only stopped by once for beer and some chips. The hotel also has a free laundry facility for guests, which is a big bonus for me. The location of the hotel is ideal for going to a baseball game at Tropicana Field. There is a pedestrian bridge behind the hotel for an easy walk to the stadium. I had not planned on going to a game, but went to one since it was so easy to get there. Overall, I had a great stay at this hotel.

Our 30 day stay was better than home. The entire staff created a warm, friendly and inviting atmosphere. Nothing was too small nor big for them to handle and accommodate us. Hassle free. Room was always in great condition and food was great. Always looked forward to going home to the Staybridge. Best hotel stay ever!

We wanted to take in a couple of ball games while in St Petersburg and wanted to avoid driving and parking at the stadium. The hotel shuttle dropped us off at the stadium entrance and we were able to take the short walk (maybe 1/2 mile?) back to the hotel. The hotel itself was terrific, great welcoming and helpful staff, lobby bright and ample areas to sit, food selections for breakfast and happy hour were good. Would look up another Staybridge Suites in the future.
