“A nice hotel in a nice location.”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

We spent a couple of nights in this hotel while visiting St. Petersburg. It is the former Pennsylvania Hotel and being on the Historic Register is required to maintain the historic aspects of the original. We had a corner room on the top floor which afforded a nice urban street scene on one side and a view of the bay from the other. The room was clean and well maintained but as in all older buildings could use a little attention. The bed and bedding was wonderful; clean and comfortable.
The lobby area is attractive with its Art Deco style and the employees could not have been friendlier. It was hot and the hotel provided a convenient tub of of cold bottled water for their guests at the front desk.
There is a full service bar at the hotel and while it is open until 10:30 PM, and even has a happy hour, it has all the charm of a bar in a hotel breakfast dining area. Breakfast is served in this same area in the mornings.
The hotel provides a free shuttle, to and from, any of the downtown locations. We used the shuttle and it was very convenient and timely.
Parking is available for $12.00 a day.
The hotel is within walking distance of the museums and the bay front area, only 4 or 5 blocks away.
It is a nice hotel in a nice location. Perhaps a little overpriced compared to some others in the area but you should be very comfortable here.

Room Tip: Upper floors provide a view.

We had a wonderful stay at the downtown St Petersburg Courtyard Marriott. Service was excellent, rooms were spacious and clean. Staff stopped at nothing to ensure our team was well looked after. For example, they made the breakfast buffet open early to accommodate our team and they let us use the dining area for team meetings and meals. They even catered a dinner one evening to accommodate us. Dining room staff were very friendly and the group travel team was stellar.

The staff there is great. I was going down to St. Pete's for our Marine Corps Reunion and last second changed hotels to the Courtyard Marriott. Every morning there was breakfast and fresh fruit downstairs. The shuttle will take you anywhere for free. This definitely enhanced the experience for our reunion.

Room Tip: I got used to the Courtyard taking care of us so much that I forgot the shuttle doesn't take you...

The staff is the best I have ever dealt with, we friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice and clean, with all the amenities. The best part is the location it is right down town St. Pete, and close to the North Shore pool which is why I chose this hotel.

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.
