“Nicest Residence Inn I've Ever Stayed In”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2009

A+ !!
I am hotels every week and am a bit picky - this Residence Inn is nicer than some JW Marriott properties.
Amaizing beach views!!! Modern, classy and clean rooms. High ceilings, stand alone shower (no yucky shower curtains). Friendly and helpful staff.
It is a little out of the way for the average Tampa/St. Pete business traveler, but well worth the extra 15 minute drive! It is like a little vacation in the middle of a hectic work week!!!! Also, the way the rooms are decorated, it feels more like a home than a hotel - and that is a big plus!
I will return to this property without a doubt!

This hotel was super nice. From the outside, it just looked like a regular hotel. But the rooms were very very nice and roomy. We had a one bedroom suite. The kitchen area was spacious and very nice as was the living room. We had two balconies, one in the living room & one in our bedroom. Our view from the hotel was incredible as it overlooked the white sand beaches on the gulf. The hotel has free breakfast which we took advantage of everyday & enjoyed. The hotel is easy to find. However, it is not located near a bunch of restaraunts. I would suggest renting a car to get around if staying here. This hotel is wonderful, but does not offer any resort amenities. That is prob the only downfall. It has a nice sized pool that we took advantage of. We would prob stay there again. We got a great rate for the room we had.

My husband and I spent 5 nights at the Residence Inn for vacation. The suites were extremely nice; very modern, new and spacious; really nice accomodations for a Residence Inn although none of them are bad; nice balconies too! The Inn is located on the beach which is just a short walk away so we'd highly recommend this property for "beach bums." However; we would not recommend staying here in the summer when it seems like most of the clientele are famililies with young kids. Normally this would not be an issue for us but because a breakfast buffet (a very good one at that) is included in the room rate; it would seem that a lot of people come here with their families and what we experienced every morning was overcrowding at breakfast with tables/countertops needing to be cleaned and tended to; garbage pale overflowing, crumbs/spills/trash on vacated tables, running out of food, etc. Not to sound overly dramatic but it was such a "turn off." I took breakfast back to my husband in our suite since he didn't want to deal with all of that. And I skipped breakfast a few mornings myself because of this. My suggestion to the management is that they might want to consider hiring another person at peak times (when a lot of kids are around) specifically to "clean up" after everyone and maintain cleanliness around the buffet area. We saw none of the help doing this. Another suggestion we'd have for the management is that breakfast be served until 10 AM. Breakfast service until 9:30 is not late enough for people on vacation although 9:30 AM would be fine for a business crowd. The pool is nice but too small when several families are there with their kids swimming; which was most of the time. Otherwise; a very nice property; exceptionally nice and modern accomodations including granite countertops, marbled baths, etc.

My husband and I stayed here on our Honeymoon. We had originally planned to stay elsewhere but when we looked at the room in this other resort it was so disgusting that we left. When we walked into the Residence Inn by Marriott in Treasure Island we didn't even ask to look at a room before booking it--the lobby was gorgeous! We were not disappointed--the room was absolutely beautiful. By far the most beautiful hotel I have ever stayed in. The only regret I have is that we didn't stay here longer (as we had booked a hotel in Orlando for the second half of our Honeymoon). The food, employees, cleanliness, etc. was all perfect...I would not have changed a thing!

We squeezed a quick one day/night trip down to St. Petersburg from our disney vacation so I could go to a Rays baseball game.We decided to stay here because it was right on the beach and only a quick 15 minute drive to Tropicana Field. The hotel room was clean/spacious and comfortable with a excellent view of the beach and gulf of mexico. The staff here was very friendly and seem to want you to enjoy your stay. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was standard with hot and cold items. The beach is a quick minute or so walk off the hotel(slow) elevators.The rate was a little higher than some hotels but because its right on the beach but its well worth it. I would definitely stay here again.

The room was very clean and well kept. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Could not have been nicer. Breakfast was a pleasure also. Plenty of coffee, juice, cereal, scrambled eggs, waffles and more! Would recommend this place.

what a fabulous place to spend a relaxing holiday. We stayed in a beautiful sunset view suite on the 7th floor and the view out to the white sands every day was heavenly. The whole place was very clean and well kept. So much so that the maintenance man was touching up the paintwork in the hallways when we left. Whilst there the whole pool area was jet washed and all of the loungers cleaned. It was a home from home and made our holiday very comfortable. We have lots of great memories of Treasure Island .. it has that wow factor which I am certain will encourage us to return again. Probably a little pricier than some but worth it. The elevators were slow and breakfast area was always busy but everyone was on holiday and quite happy to wait a bit. I couldn't find anything negative to say.

I would like to thank you for your positive remarks about our beautiful property. It is nice to hear that all of our hard work to maintain this place is paying off. We have to work hard to keep everything looking nice, being directly on the beach does pose those challenges, but we are always working diligently to show our best. Thank you so much for your business....and we will try to keep it a secret, but with the comments like this the work is going to get out! Thank you!!!!!!!
