5/5 Excellent

Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We had a very nice stay. Our daughter’s place was a 1 block walk from the hotel which made it super convenient! Staff was always very kind and helpful There is so much to see and do in that area and you can walk to all the sights in downtown St Pete. It is on a busy street but we never heard any city noises from our room. I would highly recommend.

Staff was excellent in all areas. I do not like to live out of a suitcase when on vacation. But yet Tru Hilton helped me do just that! No where to put your clothes/underware. Three hooks, a bar, and intructions to store our things under a bed isnt going to cut it. We checked out day early

1/5 Terrible

Traveled with partner, Traveled with family
Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Amenities
We ended up going to a different property. The rooms are so tiny and nothing special. It gave me motel vibes... not the Hilton vibes that we love. Also, they dont have their own parking, so you have to use valet and its third party and you have to pay for it. We like to just do our own thing. We arent valet people. We understand some hotels are valet only, it just wasnt advertised. Also the lobby is on the 3rd floor and luggage carts were scarce and tiny which made unloading our personal belongings on the side of the road very frustrating and akward. This just wasnt for us. If you are a solo traveler that is taking a taxi and has one bag... this is for you. I just want to give a really honest review for those that arent familiar with the Tru brand. We werent. And it wasnt the hotel's fault. The manager, Dillion, was super nice about it. He allowed us to check out and did not charge us for any deposits or any part of the stay that we had reserved since we decided it wasnt for us. So, we thank you Dillion for your great customer service and understanding. We will be sure to thouroughly review all hotel details before booking again!
