Your positive review is certainly appreciated, and I thank you for sharing the positives including the views surrounding the resort. It was good to know that the redevelopment projects were well communicated and did not impact your stay at all. I hope we will have the chance to welcome you back again soon.

Swanky beautiful hotel, renovation in progress

This is a ritzy joint, and while I was satisfied with our experience, because we got a good deal online, had I paid full price I'm not sure I would have felt the same. Location is great, lobby is beautiful, our room was spacious, the health club is great. The pool was being renovated and thus was closed (perhaps contributing to us getting a good deal). But we had a weird experience of work being done - chlorine power washing with a fuming gas engine powering it - right in front of the veranda where people were hanging out on Adirondack chairs looking out at the beautiful marina. The smell of the fuel and the chlorine, not to mention the noise, drove us away. Why was this being done midmorning? (Although not sure when a good time would be to do this, since it's noisy.) Also, their casual dining place Alfrescos was pretty awful - a weird fishy smell inside, their signature beer was completely flat and their house Chardonnay was not good. If they bring the wrecking ball to Alfrescos and continue their renovations, it should be a great place soon.

Nice Hotel, close to water.

Pros: Location
Cons: Rooms were ok......nothing to write home about, considering the price!
Location: On the water, good restaurants, bars, etc. you can walk to!
Nice hotel, especially the location. Somewhat pricy for what you get! Nice area of St. Petersburg!

Overpriced small rooms.

Pros: It does have original design in tact from the 1920's.
Cons: Rooms are very small. Standard room is said to be between 330-425 square feet. FALSE. I measured my room and it was 264 square feet. No view.
Location: Revitalization of area still in progress.
Rooms are very small. Considering the hotel is twice the price of nearby hotels, it doesn't offer enough to justify the overcharging.

Cons: Contract valet parking took 40 minutes to deliver the car on a Sunday morning. Their apology was to say they had a difficult time finding the car!
Okay, except for contracted valet parking...see below.

This is an amazing hotel close to all things great in St. Pete.

Pros: Quiet
St. Pete is my home and this is one spectacular hotel. Close to all of the downtown attractions. Quiet comfy rooms with wonderful views of the Bay or Downtown. Staff is friendly and very helpful! If you can, book a massage or spa day. The massage was fabulous. I'lI always come back to this hotel!
