We were treated like second-class citizens because we used “Expedia”. We reserved a king size bed and they said that you all sent it over 2 twin. They did not care. They did not try to make it right. They would not show us proof that that is what you are sent over. We left & did not stay. We were going away for a romantic night together and we had two twin beds in a dirty room

I'm so sorry about your experience with us, this is not how we treat our guests and we do not treat our guests any differently on the method used to book your room. Our time is precious and when you look forward to getting away together and I can understand the disappointment. Please reach out to me so I can make it right for you. Best regards

Did not understand Travelocity policy about nonconfirmation of Room type until check in. We thought we had reserved a room with two beds when we made the Travelocity reservations about 7 weeks in advance. However, at check-in we were given a room with only one bed and grown son was staying in room. The nice Hilton desk clerks explained that with Travelocity you are not guaranteed your room type (even though you are stuck paying for that original room type-we paid $295.67 each night plus $38.44 each night in taxes) (the hotel was completely full when we checked in and they had no more rooms with two beds) We will not use Travelocity in the future—it is an extremely flawed system.

Great Value

Great value but the best part was the hotel staff. Everyone went out of their way to help us (including fixing us up when I made a booking error). We stayed in a king suite with lots of room for less than many other small rooms. Location is great to enjoy local area shopping, restaurants and activities.

Hotel Stay

Pros: location
Cons: shuttle service back maid service hotel bar is below average
Overall this hotel is just status quo if not maybe a little worse in the 3 years or so that I have gone. They advertise free shuttle service on hotel website but do not. Overall service is okay but go ahead and look at other options. They do not go out of their way for you.

Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, shuttle service is no longer available and I will follow up on the miscommunication issue you spoke of. Wish we could have spoken prior to your departure. It is certainly not the usual experience for us, as our team is dedicated to top-notch service. Look forward to having you back to show you what we are all about. Have a safe trip.

Okay hotel close to downtown st.Pete

Rooms are a bit small for the price, but being downtown is a plus.

My room needed to be updated. The shower leaked and flooded the bathroom and hallway carpet. It was a large suite which was nice

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Hotel lobby and facilities were attractive and the staff were helpful. Didn't use the pool. Decent fitness room. Main concern was the bathroom. It was designed for the handicapped so there wasn't a ledge...the grading unfortunately caused a major leakage described above.

I'm so sorry to hear you experienced issues during your stay regarding the condition of your bathroom. We are currently scheduled for our guestroom bathrooms and hotel lobby to be renovated in the next 6 months. Our guest rooms received a full renovation less than 12 months ago and updating these last two areas of the hotel should provide a more updated look throughout the hotel. We sincerely hope to have the opportunity to serve you in your lodging needs again in the near future and provide a more positive experience that will exceed your expectations!
