Dear Susan B,

I really appreciate your comments and for taking the time to provide such a phenomenal review to our Trip Advisor readers. The property is clearly unlike any other hotel or resort on St. Pete Beach. The design team truly found an incredible way to incorporate that “hip vibe” into the motif of the entire property. I am very glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back again soon.

I attended the ribbon cutting ceremony at The Zamora Hotel a few weeks ago and was so impressed by the ambiance and the friendly professional staff I returned the next night for dinner with friends. The food was amazing and the wait staff exceptional. Chef Ted Dorsey visited the table several times and presented samples of some incredible appetizers and desserts. I had one of the best steaks I'v ever experienced. We were a party of six and everyone was very impressed with the food and the service. I returned two days later with a different group of friends and they were equally impressed.. We were treated to a tour of the property and it is by far the best in the Tampa Bay area. The rooftop bars are unequaled for views and luxurious setting. I am in the entertainment business and have lived in the area for most of my life.The people I work with have a high expectation of excellence in both lodging and fine dining and The Zamora Hotel is the "Crown Jewel". I will be a frequent flyer and look forward to treating friends and celebrities to this excellent experience. Congratulations to the owners and staff for raising the bar, literally.

Room Tip: All the rooms are large and perfectly appointed. The views vary but all have their own charm.

Dear jonnygreen269,

Thank you for your terrific 5 Star Review. I am very glad you had the opportunity to dine with us on two occasions, with both exceeding your expectations. Chef Dorsey and his team are truly remarkable and have done a fantastic job creating a truly masterful dining experience. I will make sure and share your comments with them. You are absolutely correct; I agree that the property is the best in the Tampa Bay area and with time will continue to improve. I look forward to having you as a “frequent flyer” and appreciate your recommending us to your friends and colleagues.

After a few vacation-less months, I decided to have an unconventional July 4th at Hotel Zamora this past weekend and was pleasantly initiated into the world of the boutique hotel! The design is brilliant and inspired - the architecture, decor, vivid colors, and tasteful but sensual art all conspire to unconsciously transform your mindset into full vacation mode irrespective of whatever mental baggage you may have unwittingly dragged in the door from the workweek. The food, poolside and restaurant, was flavorful to the point of happily surrendering to overindulgence. The crowning glory however was the absolutely expansive rooftop; the venue offers its occupants plenty of uncrowded space to enjoy that daily magnificent panorama of sunset over water, wine in hand, which is the hallmark of Florida living. A wonderful weekend later, I'll gladly go back to work to do that again soon!

I was just at the hotel for 4th of July weekend and had an awesome experience and wished i could have stayed longer! The dining was incredible and pool side was nice. With this hotel only being opened for 3 weeks at this point it looks as if this place is well on it's way to becoming the hotel on the beach! It happened to be the first weekend that they had the rooftop open and the views and relaxed feeling you had from sitting and enjoying the sunset where phenomenal! The rooms are second to none on the beach and I have stayed at the Don to Post Card...will definitly go back!

Room Tip: would get a corner view that over looks the intercoastal.

I had the pleasure of staying at hotel Zamora this past 4th of July weekend. My expectations were blown away. Everything is brand new. The decor of the entire hotel is stunning and above all else the food was simply to die for. Lobster fries seemed to be a crowd favorite! The chef found a way to incorporate "home made" bacon into many of the dishes I had and it was just fabulous. The only thing on the down side is that since the hotel is brand new there were some very minor kinks to work out (e.g bathroom shower did not have a soap dish in it), but nothing that can't be resolved in a matter of days/weeks. Highly recommend this place to anyone that wants that boutique hotel feel that you get in South Beach.

Room Tip: 2nd floor is closer to ice machine and pool area.

Dear Sataylorant,

Thank you so much for your comments and great review. I am very glad to hear we exceeded your expectations. The Chefs lobster fries and home-made bacon are amazing and continue to draw rave reviews. I have actually just ordered corner shelf units which will be installed in all of the guest room showers to resolve the issue of nowhere to place bath amenities. As every day passes we continue to identify and correct small issues left over from construction. We hope to have you back to visit again soon.

I have had the priviliage to stay at The Hotel Zamora. I would have to say this is one of the most unique hotel experiences I have had in a long time. As soon as you pull up to the main portico entrance, you feel you are wisked away into another Country !! This hotel is breathtaking. The decor and style is like you would find in South Beach or in a trendy NY boutique property. The staff is charming and attentive. The restaurant - Castile - should become ranked as one of the best restaurants in Tampa Bay. The Chef has created a menu that needs to be expereinced. After the amazing hotel decor and restaurant, then you go up to the rooftop that has views of the Gulf of Mexico and Downtown St Pete. This will become the place to be in Tampa Bay. We will be back and would highly recommend it to everyone.

Room Tip: Corner suite with tub
