Great location, hotel needs work.Posted Jun 29, 2017
A hotel in Florida during the summer needs working AC! Checked in early and they gave us a room that was available. Entering the room, the heat was noticeable. We figured the previous occupants or maid turned the AC down. No problem, we were headed out so we just turned it up and left. Upon returning 3 hours later, it was even hotter in the room, stifling! Called the front desk and they were going to send someone up with a key to another room. After about an hour with several calls and trips downstairs, we finally got a new room. The staff didn't seem concerned about our wait even though we had a large party waiting for us to head out to the baseball game. The elevators need serious repair or replacement. The back elevator never came for anyone in our group and there was typically a several minute wait for the front elevator as you watched the dial creep through the floors, super slow! We were there Saturday night and the lounge never opened. Pick another hotel in the area until this one upgrades!

Nice hotel in downtown areaPosted Jun 28, 2017
Pros: Rooms were clean and comfortable
Cons: Front desk staff responsiveness to phones
Location: Great downtown location. Take advantage of shuttle to get to food, entertainment, parks nearby.
The room was clean and comfortable. The bed was plush and the A/C worked well (easy to adjust and cooled quickly) The door staff and shuttle drivers were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable (made great recommendations about places to eat, nearby) . So were the front desk staff, when I could reach them--tough to reach the front desk staff via room or cell phone. (I tried calling for several minutes from my room phone and got no answer. When I walked down and mentioned this, they said 'must be a problem with the room phone'. Then tried on cell a few minutes later and still no reply. I understand if they were busy, it was a busy PRIDE weekend. Would have preferred them acknowledging they were busy with other customers or were away from desk)

Business type hotel.Posted May 22, 2017
Pros: Quiet. Pleasant staff. Free wireless.
Cons: Should offer free parking
Location: Close to Tropicana field. Nice walk to beach and nearby park
Hotel is clean and comfortable. Staff is pleasant and rooms are excellent for sleeping. Exercise room and indoor pool are tiny, and there is no free parking. Bistro is freezing, so nobody there at night. Friends stayed one block away at The Hollander--free parking, and great bar scene. Depends what you want in hotel experience.

Worth it!Posted Apr 3, 2017 on Hotels
Stayed one night for a sporting event. Shuttle service was great. One girl working the counter was very unfriendly, when I went to check in she just stated at me! Did not treat me like a valued customer at all! Rest of the staff was awesome, especially the shuttle driver. Would stay again.

Not sure what to expect, boy we were pleasantly surprised. Every aspect was great. The lobby, staff and room was excellent.

Relatively Quiet Corner of St. Pete.Posted Feb 21, 2017
Whenever I have business in St. Petersburg I have to deal with the problem of finding a good quality hotel. Unfortunately, the downtown Hilton and Hampton Inns are usually fully booked. This time I tried the Courtyard by Marriott. The hotel is nestled in the northwest corner of downtown St. Petersburg, just outside the downtown entertainment area. The hotel is well placed for access to the developing neighborhood of boutiques and restaurants just west of downtown. I enjoyed sampling the many restaurants. The Palladium Theatre is nearby. This was the old Pennsylvania Hotel until Marriott took it over and expanded it into a newer building. The higher numbered rooms are in the new building. One problem I’ve had with other hotels in St. Pete, especially the boutique hotels, are the small rooms and teeny tiny bathrooms. At the Courtyard, I ordered a room with a sofa that is often called a junior suite. My room was really just a standard sized room with an added sofa designed to fit into a corner. Nevertheless it was clean and comfortable but for well over $200 a night I’d like a little more, think bigger. Staff was very friendly and helpful, plus I had the nicest housekeeper, Alicia. You had to pay for valet parking at $15 per every night when nearby public parking was only $5 per night. They also have a sandwich shop which serves liquor and a small pool and whirlpool plus some exercise equipment. I’d use it again on another visit.
