This is a cute little place to stay conveniently located in in downtown St. Pete. An easy walk at all the amazong thinhs tondo downtown. Parking is weird. While theybhave their own garaye and your car will be safe. The garage os only open during the week. On weekends, you have to call a security guard to come and unlock the garage. The rooms are quaint but the carpeting needs replacing. There isnt an elevator, so pack lightly, or be happy to get your steps in! The staff was extremly helpful abd bubbly.

The Cordova is located in a fantastic part of downtown St Pete. There are museums, restaurants, shopping, parks everywhere in this area and it is a very walkable area. The hotel itself is quaint with history everywhere. It is a little worn but comfortable like a familiar friend. The bed was fantastic, the most comfortable bed we have experienced in a very long time. The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The bar (The Scott) in the lobby reminded me of the old TV show Cheers with its revolving door of interesting characters. All in all, we loved the Cordova and wouldn’t hesitate to stay again.

Beautiful Property
The staff was excellent! Check in very smooth. Staff communicated ahead of time via text asking estimated arrival so that everything would be ready upon arrival. We loved the room. Comfortable beds and it was very clean and well appointed. Resort fee is exorbitant and I cannot understand what it covered. The night that we chose to get a charcuterie plate so that we could sit and enjoy the porch the little restaurant had run out of food. Overall it was a great experience!

A great hotel with personality!
We were very pleased with our choice to stay at the Cordova. Kayla at the desk took good care of us and helped us through the late arrival process. The building and room have vintage charm, but have clearly been well taken care of. Would happily stay there again!
