Staybridge Suites St. Petersburg Downtown
Ranked #6 of 43 Hotels in St. Petersburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 April 2014

I recently had the opportunity to stay in this hotel in St. Petersburg. This hotel is very nice and it's new and if you have not heard of it you should check it out. It is modern with a bit of a European flair. The complimentary breakfasts have lots of choices and the coffee is excellent. Without exception, the staff was friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The complimentary happy hour with snacks was great after a long day playing tourist and visiting friends. And, oh by the way, the fact that downtown St. Pete was within walking distance was like icing on the cake. I would definitely stay there again if we were in the area.

This is a new motel just opened a month ago. Great location, close to beaches, Tropicana field downtown etc. The rooms are spacious with lots of amenities. Breakfast and evening reception were great. BUT..the best part was for sure the staff! I want to especially give credit to Jackie, front desk supervisor, Shannon the GM who was very visible, even worked in the kitchen, Victoria and Lara at the front desk were absolutely amazing. Donovan the shuttle driver was busy doing things all the time. Virginia and the others in the kitchen area were super. These employees are the reason I would go back again and again. They always were smiling and very helpful. Recognized you each time you entered the bld. Cant say enough about them!

We had a great 2-night stay at Staybridge Suites. As other reviewers have said, everything is new and clean. We love the suite layout as we had a lot of camera and computer gear to deal with. (We didn't use the kitchen facilities other than to make the complimentary popcorn and coffee.) The beds were very comfortable, the air conditioning mercifully quiet, and the staff helpful and courteous, especially Victoria at the front desk. There were a few minor start-up glitches - no shelf for soap in the shower, no folding stands for suitcases, and the batteries died in our keyless lock for our room - but the staff was very responsive in dealing with the problems. We arrived on a Thursday and were able to take advantage of the free beer, wine, and snacks offered M-Th (our night: sliders and salad), which we made into a meal as we were too tired from photographing birds at Fort De Soto Park to go out for dinner.

The location is a big plus for us, as we were 20 minutes from Fort De Soto and next door to a city park. We did not notice any restaurants within walking distance of the hotel - not a problem for us. It is right across from Tropicana Field, which might lead to traffic or noise problems during home games, but for us the traffic was very light. We were reassured by the security in the parking lot. And of course, we stayed for free thanks to the IHG Rewards points we had accumulated by staying at various Holiday Inns.

Room Tip: Several groups of kids stayed while we were there. The breakfast area was thus a bit noisy, but you...

I was torn on writing this review, but felt I needed to be honest with others looking to stay here. First of all, the staff was really friendly. Everyone made us feel welcome. The hotel is new, and that contributes to some of the other pros and cons we found.

First of all - the cons. I was surprised at how, for a new hotel, it seemed quite dirty. When we checked in, the front desk kindly moved us to an upgraded room after we found hair (and lots of it) on the bathroom floor/closet while putting away our luggage. We checked in at night, and I attributed the dirtiness of the common areas to the cleaning staff not being on duty yet. However, in the morning - and for the rest of our trip - we found hallways in desperate need of a good vacuuming and dirty elevators with discarded beverages in them. Additionally, I've included photos in which you can see open electrical sockets in our room - as the kitchen seemed still "under construction". Fortunately, we spent very little time in the room, and didn't have any use for the kitchen. Additionally, I found the breakfast really inedible. I was nervous to eat there because of the overall lack of cleanliness I was seeing in the rest of the facility.

With the great staff, and overall nice design, I think this hotel could be something really great. I think they are probably working out some of the kinks that come with opening a new facility.

The Pros - I was very impressed with the room size and layout. Also, although it was a small thing, I think it was GREAT that they offer a complimentary laundry room. Also, like others, I found the beds to be clean and comfortable to sleep in. Finally, the location was outstanding. Like I said, we spent very little time in the hotel, and appreciated the convenience of easy freeway access and overall location.

What a great, new hotel. We have just started staying at Staybridge and have had great experiences. This place is new, clean, the beds are comfortable and so are the pillows. The bathroom towels are soft and are a great size. The staff was very nice.

This hotel is brand new, just finished building and opened in late February, 2014. Everything is new, you can still smell the new smells of everything. We stayed there for 4 days to do the St. Petersburg Antique show at the Coliseum.

The hotel is directly across from the Tropicana Field stadium (see my photo's). So its a great place if you are going to an event there. PLUS they have a free shuttle that will take you around to where you need to go and pick you up. The first night they drove us to the Texas Cattle Steakhouse & picked us up when we called. Another night I was looking for chinese food and they offered to drive me & wait while I picked it up. But I found a place that delivers since I didn't want to bother the hotel with dinner delivery.

All the rooms are suites, so you have the comforts of home including a kitchen. We were in room 509 and they were still working on the rooms and adding furniture & TV's to them. Plenty of room for everything.

The only thing I could recommend which I did at checkout was add a shelf to the shower since you have to put your shampoo/soap on the small shower runner near the floor. But no big deal to me, its a very minor thing.

They have a breakfast buffet in the morning which is free. Good for a grab & go. Coffee is good, no starbucks or any of that junky coffee.

The parking is free (unlike the hotels downtown that charge $16+ a day for parking). The parking lot is huge with 2 entrances & your safety is not an issue since its not located in a bad area.

We will be back next year if we decide to do the St. Petersburg Antique show again.

Room Tip: High floor if you want a view.
