“Top notch”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

I highly recommend this hotel. The staff is top notch. The hotel is very clean and very well decorated. Even the outside of the hotel is beautiful with nice tropical landscaping. A park borders the hotel on 2 sides, so it's not crammed in amongst other hotels.

The lobby is comfortable and spacious. Coffee, tea and fountain sodas are available at all hours.

I stayed in a king studio room. The room was very spacious, cheery and nicely decorated in a modern style. The bed was super comfortable, and the shower was huge with a nice tile surround. Higher rooms facing east have a nice view of the St. Petersburg bayfront.

The breakfast was great also. It included a broad selection of eggs, fruit, oatmeal, and baked goods. Everything was very fresh.

My husband and I both agree this is the best hotel we've ever stayed at. We were travelling with our 3 children (ages 9,6,4). They loved this place, too. We went with the 1 bedroom suite with 2 queen beds. There was a nice sized living room, a brand new kitchen and huge bathroom. It was very spacious for the 5 of us. The front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was great as well. The kids all found something they liked (not an easy task) and there was plenty for everyone even though there was an entire football team staying at the hotel for 1 of the nights we were there. The breakfast was WAY better than any Hampton Inn we've stayed at. I also have to mention that the beds were the MOST COMFORTABLE we've ever slept on. The location was perfect for us. It is only about 12 minutes from St. Pete's Beach. We walked to Tropicana Field (only about a 10 minute walk) to watch the Blue Jays play the Tampa Bay Rays. My kids were in heaven!! I would definitely stay at this hotel again and I highly recommend it to anyone staying in the area.

Room Tip: I would recommend the 1 bedroom suite if you are travelling with your family. The rooms are very spa...

A great hotel in St. Petersburg!!! Highly recommended. Many of the employees were very helpful and friendly. It is a great place especially if you are a baseball fan as the Tropicana Field is practically located next door (about a block or so). Also, you may want to check some of the baseball pictures, including a view of the stadium from the hotel (“Images” menu -- 2014 Major League Baseball) on my Web site – KySportsStyle360.com.

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
