Great hotel and staff... I appreciated the hotel shuttle to and from where we needed to go. I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to St. Pete! Close to Grand Central District.

Good choice for the price and area

Posted Jun 2, 2014
We were satisfied with our room at the hotel. The room was clean and the hotel employees were very nice. They offered transportation around town for free, which was very accommodating. On the down side, the air conditioner kept both of us up at night when it went on and off. We would have liked to have continental breakfast included (personal preference). The valet parking at $12 a day seemed a bit steep. All in all, we would recommend this hotel for the area based on price and convenience.

We are glad to see that our staff and complimentary shuttle helped you to enjoy your time in the St. Pete area. We like to hear when our guests had good experiences while using our amenities. Also with being a downtown property we do charge for our valet parking services, we are proud to say that we also have the lowest fee for our valet services in the area at $12/per night. Courtyards have also transitioned over to the Bistro for our breakfast and Dinner options, this allows for our guest more freedom for their meal options. Being an A La Carte menu allows for your to order and purchase what you want and not have to pay for services that you may or may not use. Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with our property, please come see us again.

A night in St Petersburgh.

Posted Jun 1, 2014
We had a night to kill while waiting for a flight so we booked a night at this hotel. It was an excellent experience and I would recommend this hotel. We had breakfast at the hotel and spent the evening at the local restaurants and night spots. The hotel is very conveniently located and walking distance from the Bay Area attractions.

Great location for Tropicana field

Posted Apr 22, 2014
Pros: Location, clean comfortable room, friendly helpful staff, free shuttle to Tropicana Field
Cons: Restaurant should provide free coffee refills, fitness center was very small with limited equipment and there was no self-parking (valet only)
Location: It is ideally located if attending an event at Tropicana Field.
We stayed at the hotel when we went to a Tampa Bay Rays baseball game at Tropicana Field. The hotel is in a great location in an older, quaint part of town. The hotel was very clean and comfortable and the staff was very helpful. They even provide a free shuttle to Tropicana Field.

Friendly staff, old dinky hotel!

Posted Mar 31, 2014
This is the perfect hotel if your here on business, but not vacation. There is no outdoor pool and the area can get a little sketchy at night if your trying to walk home late from dinner. My family and I were approached by several homeless people and asked for money, one even asked for my husbands cross necklace. We even had the liberty to witness a drunk get arrested from the apartment complex next door. The staff are EXTREMELY friendly and customer service orientated.

We do realize that the Courtyard brand was built with the corporate traveler mind. However, in St Petersburg we have a blend of both business and leisure guests. Being in a downtown area, and a historic building we were limited in our renovation and were without enough space for exterior amenities. I am sorry that we did not meet your needs. We do offer a complimentary shuttle so our guests can travel from all of the wonderful venues in the area in air conditioned comfort without the need to do so on foot. Thank you for your feedback.

Great hotel and location; very friendly staff.

Posted Feb 10, 2014
Pros: Staff, cleanliness, restaurant breakfast.
Cons: Put fans in the bathroom!
Location: There are great restaurants within walking distance and a lovely park a block up the street.
We had a great visit to St. Pete & an overall great stay at this hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful and very courteous while we were there. Being an old hotel, though, one of the downfalls is they don't have fans in the bathroom. Unbeknownst to me, this can set off a hotel room fire alarm. We ended up with a blaring fire alarm for at least 15 minutes. Even in the midst of that, the front desk manager was incredibly nice and helpful. We ended up having to move rooms because the flashing strobe light wouldn't turn off, but they moved us to a nicer room and gave us free breakfast the next day. I had french toast @ the Bistro and it was delicious.

Small piece of paradise in downtown

Loved the hotel. Located in heart of downtown and less than a mile from baseball stadium. Make sure you stay in the new section of the hotel

It is an historic hotel. Neighborhood wasn't the worse but did have a lot of homeless roaming the streets. Rooms were nicely kept.
