As your plane starts its descent into St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport (PIE) in The Big Guava, you will be comforted by the thought that your accommodation has already been organized. Welcome to Tampa!
As much as you might be fond of the energetic atmosphere that you find in an airport, spending the night in one is a different story. There's nowhere to stay right by the terminals, but a quick drive will bring you to 20 excellent options. Hop in a hot shower and then dive into bed at the St. Petersburg Marriott Clearwater, which has airport shuttle service and 24-hour concierge. Another comfortable getaway is the Hilton St. Petersburg Carillon Park.
You can enjoy a taste of the area while remaining within easy reach of the airport by reserving a room in one of the nearby neighborhoods. With 19 hotels to take your pick of, Feather Sound is an enticing suburb. Here, you should put the Residence Inn By Marriott St Petersburg Clearwater and the Homewood Suites by Hilton St. Petersburg Clearwater on your list.
Even though you may be just here on a layover, you should consider visiting the Salvador Dali Museum if you have time. After all, it's only 11 miles (18 kilometers) away.
Now you know where you're going and what you want to do, be sure to book your hotel as soon as you're able.
