Hilton St Petersburg Bayfront

Beautiful view, close to the shops and restaurants.
Friendly staff, a Starbucks store is located close to the lobby.
The wifi is not very reliable, sometimes does not work.
It is not a new hotel, but it provides everything one needs. The lobby area is very pleasant and the pool is very nice.
The executive floor view is very nice with a wonderful view of town.
The restaurant food could be better.
The value is exceptional ( cost x benefit).
I will go back any time.

Stayed: March 2012, traveled with family

Staff is very accommodating and courteous. Rooms are clean and very functional. Choice of fresh orange or strawberry water in the lobby is the finest! Flavor of the tuna melt sandwich was a pleasant surprise.
Not only recommend but we'll be sure to go back.

Only 10 minute walk to excellent restaurants and fun shops on the bay front. However, if you don't wish to walk, the hotel courtesy van will take you to all places on the bayside that you would want to visit and you may get the driver to tell you some interesting facts about St. Pete.

Room Tip: ask for high room, toward the front, on north side for good view.

I arrive at 8:30. 5 guys in an SUV. No valet. Drive 3 times around a full lot before an attendant says "we're full! You have to go to overflow lot!" Not, "let me park it for you" or "leave it here until a space opens". The overflow is 1/4 mile away. In a garage. The exit puts me in an alley between tow office buildings with dumpsters. I had to push thru the bushes to get back to hotel.

Welcome to St Pete! Hilton your brand takes it on the chin with this place.

I stayed here for business and the hotel was nice, in a Hiltonesque sort of way. The room was nice, clean, and had a great view of the Bayfront. The staff was friendly and efficient. And the location was great, especially if one had business at USF. The restaurant was so-so, which was sad since I ordered seafood and this hotel IS in a city on the Gulf of Mexico. The thing about this hotel is that, while there was nothing terrible about it, there was nothing that made it stand out, either. It really felt like the "garden variety franchise hotel". I really prefer to stay in hotels with personality (and you can find that even with the big chains), but this one was oatmeal all the way. I cannot say that I would never stay here again, but I think I would look for alternatives first.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on a higher floor for a better bayfront view. Also, it never hurts to be an active...

Stayed here many times but now they are milking the patrons. Parking, resort fees and upping the rates has made this hotel off my list. Too bad, nice beach!!! Rooms are just ok but this place has location, location,location.

Very convenient to downtown St Petersburg, FL. You can walk to pretty much anywhere unless you have a problem walking. And if someplace it too far, the hotel offers a free shuttle around downtown.

The rooms are nice. They are clean and fairly modern. Nothing spectacular, but comfortable. I have stayed 5 times and could see the bay from every room I have been in. My only issue was that on one side you are above the AC units and it can be kind of loud. I asked for a new room and was accommodated without compaint.

The staff is very helpful and courteous.

There is a lounge on the top floor for members who are gold and higher. They serve a free breakfast in the morning, free beer, wine and snacks at hapy hour (5 to 7), and free water, sodas, etc all day and night.

If you are buying your breakfast, they have a fabulous buffet breakfast downstairs in the restaurant.

Parking is $14 a day. I think that is a bit high. But, it isn't like they have extra parking spaces. The lot is always full.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the side of the hall opposite the elevators. The AC units are below the other sid...

Good Afternoon Karen F,

Thank you for providing your feedback regarding your stay with us. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your time here, and I certainly agree that the location is ideal. It is so nice to be able to walk to all of the restaurants and shops that downtown St. Petersburg has to offer. Thank you also for mentioning the Hilton Honors Lounge as well. It is a wonderful perk for our Diamond and Gold Hilton Honors members, and it is also the only part of the hotel that faces the Bay directly, so the view is amazing! Again, we appreciate your time and consideration, and we look forward to serving you in the future. Have a wonderful day!

Kindly,

Chellie M
Front Office Manager
