“Marvelous stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

I arrived very early, my room was not prepared & was upgraded to a suite, by Nia, the most helpful reservationist I have encountered in many years.
The room, was more than adequate, m/w mini-fridge, top toiletries in the BR, plenty of hot water. The lighting for the mirror could have been better, but the energy efficient bulbs seem not to work well regardless of where I stay.
40" HD TV's in BR/LR. LR had a desk, chair, coach ( a sleeper).

Hotel is off the Bay, I had a great view.

No problems at all, nothing requested.

Great Lavazza Italaian coffe for the maker. Bigelow tea, as well.

I even got to the pool one day, plenty of seating, w/a tiki bar. Pitchers of Bud were $6.

Free business center w/ 4 pc's, rather slow, but free +printer.

Go out the side door going to the pool, into the parking left, turn left and follow it out; there's a CVS, Publix, Subway, other stores.

Room Tip: My suite was not a corner, so no sun came directly in, which was great. A/C worked very well, often...

This was a wonderful hotel located in downtown St. Petersburg. I was traveling alone, so I didn't venture out until looking for an ATM the day before I left. There are lots of places around the hotel to eat and shop. The only negative about the hotel is the parking. You have to pay for parking (14$ a day) and sometimes there are NO parking places! You are better off parking in the parking deck that's beside the parking lot for 5$ a day.

Thank you for you review of our hotel. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your time with us. Yes, like many downtown hotels we do charge a parking fee. Unfortunately parking can be an issue during times of full occupancy and large events, if you are unable to park in our lot, it is always our pleasure to reimburse that fee. Thanks and come see us agsin soon!

I've stayed here a handful of times for work. The rooms are large. The furnishings & fixtures are a bit worn, but the linens & cleaning are top notch. On my most recent stay the room had a mini-fridge which was great. The breakfast is solid but best experienced when someone else is paying. Location can't be beat - access to all of downtown St. Pete, and nice views if you're on an upper floor.

Great location in downtown St Pete. Stayed for Father's Day weekend and to take in a Rays game. They offer a free shuttle to and from the stadium. Can easily walk to downtown/Beach Dr for the nightlife. Staff is exceptionally friendly.

The Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront needs some major updates!!! The staff were very fri.endly and accommodating, especially Nicholas, the valet. We were given a suite which was very spacious and clean. The bed was very comfortable and linens were of high thread count. The carpets were faded and stained and the couch and chairs were lumpy and in need of new upholstery. The room was very dated and sad!!!
The lobby appeared updated...

Asked for a refrigerator two days prior to arriving - Didn't get it.... Found two half eaten hot dogs and a Sprite Bottle under our beds - The Van ride to the Rays Baseball game, that runs every hour - never showed up..It was contracted to an Airline but Hilton never told us, we just waited for a ride that never came. Had to pay for cab! Breakfast took forever in the restaurant and was terrible - runny eggs, cold potatoes, etc....Remember, I'm a Diamond member who stay about 70 nights a year in a Hilton and nothing was done for me - No loyalty

I was in St. Pete for a conference, and was very pleased with the Hilton. I have been to other Hiltons and been non-plussed. This hotel was clean, the staff was very courteous, and eveyone even walking past, spoke and treated me with kindness and respect. I asked if the hotel had been remodeled lately as I liked the boutique feel, and they said they were about to start soon. I'm guessing it can only get better.
