At the end in March I was visiting St. Petersburg for an editing convention. I picked this hotel over the convention's hotel because it had a kitchenette, free breakfast, free wifi, and free shuttle services. By the end of my trip I was extremely happy with my choice.
The room was clean and comfortable for the most part. For extra measures I brought my own kitchen cleaning supplies and wiped down the microwave and fridge before use. I do recommend doing that because I found crumbs from previous visitors, but I understand they can't take a toothbrush to every inch of every room. Also, when I found a black smudge on my blanket, they changed the sheets right away.
The breakfast was one of the best hotel breakfasts I had. What blew me away was that you could order turkey bacon if you can't eat the pork products available. I do suggest only ordering it if you can wait 5-10 minutes. If you're in a hurry there are plenty of other high quality options available. I'd often make a little biscuit, cheese, and egg sandwich when I stayed.
And the best part? The free shuttle. I used it 4 out of the 5 days I was there and it saved me so much money for parking and gas. I was so grateful. Jay would usually transport me in the morning and he was the coolest of the drivers. He has 5 stars alone. On average they were there between 10-20 minutes after I called to pick me up from the convention. There was only one day that I had to wait over 40 minutes for them, which didn't bother me because after the convention I wasn't on tight schedule.
Check in and check out was a breeze. It's in a very central location. And everyone was super friendly and helpful. It made my whole trip much nicer. I would highly recommend this hotel! :)
