Reviewed 31 August 2014 via mobile

I travel for work regularly and stay at the big brand hotels. The experience is satisfactory and predictable. This place blew me away. You get all the quality of a Marriott with the unique history, style and personalization of a boutique hotel staff that cares about every single guest experience. It is apparent that the staff and management pursue the highest standards. The locals love this place and come in for brunch and live music. Out of towners get the chance to be a part of something special, if only for the weekend.

The staff were very friendly and the room was clean a bit on the small side as there were 3 of us, ok for the couple of nights we stayed but I think a full week would of have been stressful. The refrigerator was iced up and not cooling properly and the kitchenette wasn't stocked very well with some essential items missing, and the wifi was unreliable.The bar and restaurant were very good the selection of beers was excellent and the food was of good quality and reasonably priced. There was also a very good live music act . The hotel is also pet friendly there were quite a few dog owners with their dogs. On the whole our stay was an enjoyable.

I can not think of one negative thing about this hotel! The staff was very plesant and helpful, the bed was comfy, the rooms nice, the food in the bar/restaurant good and not to pricey. The best thing? They offer free shuttle service to the Tropicana Dome for the ball games! We will be back!

Stayed at this Hotel during a business trip. The hotel is Located right near the heart of scenic Downtown St Petersburg, and is a short distance from St Petersburg attractions such as Tropicana Field home of the Tampa Bay Rays.

The hotel has been renovated and they did a wonderful job.

Others have stated it was loud, and it does have the normal pops and creaks like any classic place would, however we had no issues with noise. We stayed on the 2nd floor so that might have had something to do with it, but the Restaurant / Bar area was packed and we heard nothing while in our room. Speaking of the Restaurant, the Tap Room Located in the lobby area has a great line up of food, drink, and yes even dessert to satisfy.

If you're looking for a cookie-cutter national chain, this isn't for you. However if you're looking for a friendly, warm, clean, delightful place to stay that is close to downtown St. Petersburg, the Hollander is for you.

My girlfriend and I travelled in amny countries and we staid in hundreds of Hotels around the world but at the Hollander we had the worst experience ever had.
After the first night, from the luggage of my girlfriend disappeared 2 rings (one of them was a famous brand with high value) and a make-up case.
This is a terrible fact but unfortunately things like this can happen in bad places and we made a mistake to leave them in the room; the worst thing is that we explained the fact to the personnel and we have been threated in a very arrogant and unprofessional way.
We asked to check the video of the cameras on the corridors but we received a negative answer, then we have been threated not to call the police otherwise we'd been forced to leave the hotel immediately and to be obliged to go to a court in the future months.
At the end we left the hotel very disappointed and pained; for the fact but moreover from the "ambiguous" behaviour of the personnel. Instead of trusting on their guests and giving support, they threat them.
We told them that we'd have put a negative feedback on tripadvisor but the reply was that thay don't care.
We asked in dowtown and it seems that actually the reputation of this hotel is getting worst and worst in the recent period.
The towels in the rooms were dirty.
Avoid this hotel.

We are sorry for your misfortune, As the General Manager I addressed the situation personally .
When you first brought this to my attention. Levcolus and your girlfriend were not sure you had even had the rings with you upon you check in, She actually named 3 other places that they could of been left. I took care of your breakfast while I viewed the camera's per your request.
No one entered your room that morning except for your housekeeper to make up your room. She has been with us from day one and we have never had ANY problems. My Staff and myself are always concerned 190% about ALL our guests and their experience with us.. I do hope you find your ring and I wish you the best..

Sincerely, Nick

I didn't actually stay at the Hollander because I live in St. Pete, but happened to attend an afternoon writers' group there. This is a hidden gem, possibly even moreso for locals who need an hour or two of easy charm with snacks, wine/beer, and coffee! Easy parking, eclectic lobby/bar with an amazing craft beer list (on a big chalk board), a delectable selection of bakery items and espresso. If needed, I would have guests stay at the Hollander, but even if they stay with me, I shall be sure to take them there for lunch or a cup of pleasant ambiance.

Room Tip: I didn't actually stay here, but would like to. My take on it is that it is a charming, well sto...

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!
