Hilton Saint Petersburg Carillon Park
Ranked #3 of 43 Hotels in St. Petersburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 23, 2011

stayed here one night, upgraded to a suite and still found very little redeming about property after reading glowing reviews. It is better than the run of the mill in-town hilton, but there is nothing great about the hotel or the area. If it's convenient to what you're doing, by all means stay here. If it's not, the location is out of the way with nothing positive to offer. The lake is pretty sad, especially for Florida, and there is no park or other land nearby as I thought there might be, just a 1 mile "boardwalk" around the stale lake.

I stayed here for a business meeting. It was clean and very new. However there are many other dining options in the area better than the in hotel lounge.

Although I did not care for the food, the staff was excellent and the room was on the larger side and clean.

I stumbled arross this Hilton property, without directly looking for it, and was pleasantly surprised with my stay.
This hotel sits off of Ulmerton Road, in Carillon Park, which is the main road in Pinellas County that extends from Tampa, all the way to the beaches.
This hotel is only a few years old, and is absolutely beautiful. All of the staff was very friendly and answered questions I had about the area. They provide complimentary shuttle service to from Tampa Airport, in case you do not have transportation. They will also take you within a 5 mile radius of the hotel, which was extremely convenient. My business is located with this radius, so I did not have to worry about renting a car.
The wireless internet and parking are also complimentary, so do not worry about paying a daily fee for either! This is rare now-a-days at at hotel of this caliber.
All in all, my stay was great and I hope that my company books more meetings in this area so I can visit the Hilton St. Petersburg Carillon Park again.

Room Tip: Many complimentary services and amenities

My fiancee and I stayed here during her business trip. We enjoyed our stay for many reasons!

LOCATION - The hotel is located near many businesses in a location convenient to the highway and major roads, including many stores and restaurants. It took fewer than 30 minutes to get here from Tampa International Airport, even during the evening rush hour (what rush hour? we didn't see any traffic). An early morning drive to the airport took about 18-20 minutes.

BUILDING - The hotel itself is very modern, spacious and clean. Parking is free and plentiful. A beautiful fountain greets you as you enter the building, and the lobby is large and bright. There is a pool with a hot tub, and a fitness facility for guests. Be sure to bring sun block! It's true that this area gets sun on 361 of 365 days a year! We spent two days by the pool but did not get a chance to check out the fitness facility though! There is a nice restaurant in the lobby named Luna which my fiancee has dined at during previous visits. She said the food there is excellent although a little pricier than other nearby dining options.

HOTEL ROOM - We stayed in a junior suite facing the pool on the 7th floor. You get a nice view of the pond and neighboring buildings. There is plenty of sun throughout the day. The junior suite includes a patio that runs the length of the room. Upon entering, there is a set of nesting tables on which to put your computer with FREE internet, a dining/meeting table for four people, a nice bar area with small refrigerator and sink, and a living room area with a couch and 42" LCD tv (plenty of channels, including HBO, too). Next to the living area is a large bedroom with a very soft king size bed, a reading chair, stand up dresser with another LCD tv, and a large sliding closet. The bathroom is very nice, has a large counter top, and includes all the amenities you would need.

EXTRAS - We had access to the Concierge on the 9th floor, which was very convenient. Each morning, there is a breakfast spread that contains eggs, bacon, sausage, yogurts, fruits, cereals, pastries... everything you need. Also a variety of teas and coffee, including a Nespresso machine that I put to good use during our stay. After breakfast, an assortment of potato chips, fruit and sodas/waters stay out for anyone who needs a snack during the day.

SERVICE - Great service from many staff members, including the manager John, Wanda and everyone at the front desk. They gave us individual attention and were very friendly yet professional each time we spoke to them. I haven't experienced this level of service from an entire team of service representatives at a hotel, ever!

All in all, great stay given that it was on business. Convenient location that is close to all highways and the airport, with many dining options nearby. Also not far from downtown St. Petersburg, and the Ellenton Factory Outlets were less than 40 minutes away.

Highly recommend this hotel!

I recently visted Hilton St. Pete on leisure travel. Had I done more research before booking I would have realized this property is geared more toward business/meeting travel, however I was not disappointed! For as many people that were coming in and out for conventions the hotel stayed very well kept and was surprisingly quiet. The staff was extememly friendly and played a huge part in making the stay so enjoyable. If you're planning on visiting this property be sure to swing by the hotel's restaurant "Luna"; great food, great service and the restaurant manager, Pete, is an absolute pleasure. Overall, a truly wonderful experience!

hotel lobby is clean, open and inviting; each staff member we encountered - front desk, room service, housekeeping - was very pleasant and most helpful; restaurant has decent amount of food choices, prices fairly reasonable, and tasty food; pool is lovely and clean and has wonderful shade in the later afternoon; stayed in pet-friendly room (would not have known this was a pet-friendly room - so clean) on second floor and had a view of the pool, lake and nature preserve, with window that opens but no balcony, and room was clean, bed comfortable, refrigerator in room, and had possibly the best a/c control we have ever had in a hotel room, fast wifi - only small complaint would be some noise from hallway and from room above, but can be said of most hotels; location is quiet - in a nice business park setting - and has added benefit of lake and carillon for scenery and nature preserve for walking and observing many creatures (birds, lizards, fish, turtles, an alligator, oh my!), and good location for us as was combo business/vacation trip, and hotel is located basically between Tampa and St. Petersburg Beach, and just a few minutes from downtown St. Petersburg, also has nice selection of stores/restaurants nearby - Starbucks, Panera, Publix, Courtside Grille, Tropical Smoothie Cafe; no fee for parking; hotel seemingly more for business travelers, but completely comfortable staying with our toddler son.

Thanks to their Pet friendly policy I've stayed at this hotel three times. It is ALWAYS exceptionally clean, the service is great and you can usually score a decent deal. It's a bit of a hike to the beach but when you can get a place like this for 1/2 the price of a 2.5 Star on St. Pete Beach it is a no-brainer. Easy to get to downtown St. Pete for dining and shopping. I will stay here again and again.
