“Clean, nice staff, and love the shuttle!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

My group was in town for an education conference and stayed at this jewel of a hotel. From check in to check out my stay was fabulous. I thought the Starbucks was already here but I guess it won't in the hotel until later this year, so I just took the free shuttle to the Starbucks down the street. The shuttle was a great plus, the breakfast was scrumptious and the hotel was clean. I will be back here for our next conference!

We did not have a reservation. When I asked the rate it was higher then when I showed the front clerk my Florida drivers license. We had our daughter with us and they only had rooms left with King beds and sleeper sofa. Got to the room after we went to the Ray's game. There were no sheets for the sofa bed my husband went down to the front desk to get some. The comforter had small blood spots on it, but I didn't complain. Had the buffet the next morning, it was expensive for what you got. Not sure if I will stay here again when I am in St Petersburg. Valley was very friendly though.

I am pleased that we were able to accomodate you with a Florida Residents rate for your recent stay with us. I apologize that the linens for the sleeper sofa were not in the room upon your arrival. We are looking forward to an upcoming renovation that will provide us with the new Courtyard Bistro which wll offer a wider variety of breakfast option for our guests and it is scheduled to open September 14th.

Stayed here recently to celebrate a friend's bachelorette party. Proximity to the bars and restaurants of downtown St. Pete was perfect, although there was a disturbing number of drunk and homeless people during the day lurking around. The hotel is under renovation and thank goodness our rooms were in the newer part. Other areas of the hotel were very dated and drab. Wi-fi worked well and was easy. Breakfast was expensive and just so-so. Front desk staff was friendly, but our first encounter was with valet and they barked at us for pulling into the wrong parking lot, which was mislabeled. We had coupons for the rooms for this visit, but I would probably not pay to come back, and wouldn't recommend to a friend.

Room Tip: Request the newer, renovated side of the hotel when booking

We are looking forward to the completion of our renovations that will update our restaurant and lobby. The new Courtyard Bistro will offer adiditonal options for our guests for breakfast and dinner. I am sorry to hear that the valet was less than professional. I will certainly share this with our Valet Parking Company that manages that service for us.

This hotel was perfect for my one night stay. It was conveniently located down town. I was in St. Pete for a quick trip to visit the Baseball Stadium. It was only blocks away from my hotel and the free shuttle was very convenient. The rooms were very nice and spacious. The pool area was small and indoors but clean and provided a good place to cool off.

Room Tip: ask for a bay view!

I travel to St Pete a few times a year and usually stay at this hotel due to the convenient location. It is a historic building with neat history now owned by Marriott. Rates are OK, not great. If you drive a car you will have to valet park which will add to the bill. Fitness room is OK. Rooms are always very clean and comfortable. Breakfast is typical for this type of hotel. Service is always friendly. They have a shuttle that will take you nearby... including the stadium where the Rays play baseball or the pier and restaurant area.

We've stayed at the Courtyard three times in the past two years. I love the historic charm, without the high dollar room rate. Having a fridge in the room is very convenient to keep water, wine and snacks chilled. Staff is very helpful and friendly, parking fee is reasonable and there's a free shuttle. I've considered paying more to stay closer to the waterfront, but always end up booking at the Courtyard and having no regrets with that decision. We'll be back next year.

Room Tip: Corner room have more space and light, but no blackout curtains on the side windows.
