I will say it again..charming... What a pleasant surprise in downtown St Petersburg. Historic building, just beautiful! Close to the Central shopping distict where you will find antiques and eclectic stores. Walking distance to the water and Tropicana field. The restaurant/ bar had good food at a great price, craft beers and outstanding drinks made the right way. Will definitely go back!

We had a wonderful stay at the Hollander Hotel. Room was better than expected, considering it's an older hotel. Renovated in last few years, quiet room with ceiling fan, microwave and fridge. Lack of counter space in bathroom and noisy hallways (or rude guests) are a minus. Very helpful, courteous staff. Overall clean room....did notice a few hairs in tub and drain and dirt around baseboard of dresser. We were going to games at Tropicana Field and booked because of the free shuttle. The shuttle doesn't run if raining and the line was too long after the game (people in line said it had been at lest 20 mins. since last shuttle left) so we wound up walking 1.7 miles back to hotel. I wouldn't book solely on convenience of shuttle so keep that in mind. Restaurant food tasty, especially Cuban pork quesadilla. We had it twice! Breakfast buffet was treat for $10. Really enjoyed the Sangria. Lobby area very interesting. Lively bar scene on weekend. I quickly understood why others suggested asking for quiet room (and was granted one upon request). Hotel is "L-shaped" and some rooms are directly over bar area. We were given 3rd floor (so no walking above us) Room 318 in wing away from bar. Would definitely recommend and stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for quiet room on 3rd floor.

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Hollander. It's charm and unique decor are one of the things that made our stay so great. The location to Tropicana stadium 1.5 miles made for an enjoyable walk as well as to the Delhi museum. The service is among the best I've had any where. The only thing that lacked was an iron in the room or a phone but that doesn't really matter. The meals in the restaurant are outstanding our server Dean was great. Looking forward to our next trip down here. Thank you....

Ok being a local we are a bit picky - you know we live with pixie dust! But what a GREAT hotel/staff/place. Went over for a one night stay and took in a ball game at Tropicana Field. From the awesome food to the friendly staff to the very chic room I was hooked!! We WILL be back. Soon I hope. Bottom line - best kept secret in downtown St. Pete!!!

Room Tip: Stayed on first floor and was happy!!

Lovely Boutique hotel just few blocks from Beach Drive. We stayed for two nights and received what we payed for. Overall a nice hotel with historic charm. But Housekeeping is lacking cleaning skills. Our room was lovely, and mostly clean, but small details like lamp shades and baseboards were covered in dark dust. Our mini fridge held dinner leftovers (crab cakes), from the previous guests, for us, pretty smelly surprise. We received a couple towels with holes and long black hairs attached. Front Office team was polite but not really engaging.

Come here if you love historic buildings with charm!
Overall we enjoyed our stay and would come back if the prize is right!

This was our first visit to the Hollander and we were a little hesitant. What a surprise the room was great, the food was good and my teen did not want to leave. Thursday night is trivia night in the restaurant/bar, so if you are in the house play along, but don't expect to go to bed early, as they get a little noisy. The hotel has a spa, coffee shop, restaurant and bar - all with a unique décor. The dinner on the porch was the best, watching the city go by. We would go back again no questions about it.

Room Tip: The first floor rooms can be a bit noisy at Thursday night trivia time 7-9pm. As an older hotel the...

We really loved our experience at the Hollander. I think the staff made it remarkable, they were really nice and very helpful. Nothing special about the rooms, they are not large but they are clean. Parking is easy and they even offer transportation around the area. A place to go back to.
