    This is a cute boutique hotel but I'm very glad we were only there for 1 night. The location is beautiful located right across from the bay and along a long stripe of restaurants and coffee shops. However, there is no parking at the hotel so you must use their valet. That wasn't that much of an issue except the front office closes at 9pm so if you arrive after that you have to risk leaving your car in front being at risk of being towed. Most of the restaurants near this hotel don't open until 4pm and close around 11pm, if not earlier. The room was pretty but the cleaning was questionable as I found a dirty tissue on the night table when we checked in. Also the TV would only play one channel, the local news channel that was on loop.

    Very nice hotel in a lovely location by the water and pier. Staff is friendly and very helpful. This is a small hotel that goes out of its way to please its guests. Strangely missing is a small refrigerator from the room. Most hotels in resort areas (especially ones in hot climates) provide one. We also did not have truly hot water for washing. Although the maintenance crew came and attempted to resolve the problem, we took luke-warm showers for 8 days. The restaurant in the hotel is quite good.

    A truly boutique experience in the heart of Downtown St. Pete. Just steps away from great dining and shopping. Also, great to get up early and watch the sunrise over the Gulf inlet. The restaurant at the hotel is superb! The rooftop overlooking the Gulf and Pier is a wonderful view, great place to have a glass of wine at the bar to end your evening. The complimentary breakfast in the morning had a lot to offer.

    Property very nice and location great. However rooms sit above an outdoor dining area that was screaming loud (on a Weds!) until at least midnight. Maybe an anomaly but something to watch out for

    Nice place, staff was friendly and helpful. Excellent rooftop bar. Self parking options are limited. Only one chair in room and it was very uncomfortable. Bed was comfortable but the room was not suitable for much else.

    Great stay, staff was very friendly and professional. The room was nice and clean. The rooftop bar was very nice with live music during dinner and the view was breathtaking. The atmosphere was amazing as well. Will be back, plus everything around the hotel was nice, the pier and the shops, were just a happening place. Good location.
