I stay in a lot of Courtyard's and this is definitely an average minus. The bed was hard and the air-conditioner blows directly on the bed. It sounded like a jet engine and blew very cold air directly on your head. I woke up every time it happened. With the thermostat on the other side of the room it happen often and then it would get warm on the bedside. Parking is not free and it is a little expensive. Next time I will probably find something a little further out.

Thank you for staying at the Courtyard by Marriott St Petersburg downtown. I am sorry to hear that it was not to your liking. I understand the AC was of concern, and I apologize that we did not address your concerns while you were here. We certainly like to take care of any issues as quickly as possible. We are as well as all of the hotels in the downtown area, real estate challenged. With space in short supply it is necessary for us to use the services of an outside valet company to manage our guest vehicles which does have a charge attached. I do hope you will consider staying with us again in the future.

This was my third or fourth stay at the Courtyard Marriott. The staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming. The hotel recently underwent a renovation of the lobby and their cafe area, and it looks great. The cafe was nice to have as an amenity - the food was a little pricey ($9 for basic breakfast), but the convenience was appreciated, as I was staying with a group and we used the morning breakfast time to get together and plan what we would be doing that day.

The hotel is very close to downtown St. Pete, with lots of shops, entertainment venues and restaurants, and there is a free shuttle which will take you around the town.

As I was working pretty flat out, I didn't have a chance to use the amenities - such as the pool and exercise room, but I was very happy with my stay and am looking forward to going back!

I expect more from a Marriott. The hotel wasnt very clean and was rundown. It is located in a shady part of town and I didn't feel safe outside of the hotel. The walls were paper thin and we could hear our neighbors T.V.
I will not stay here again.

I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your stay with us at the Courtyard St Petersburg. We do have challenges in the operation of a historic hotel. I am pleased to share that we are confirming our plans for corridor and guest room renovation that will be taking place later in the year which will give all the rooms a fresh and updated look. We enjoy being part of the downtown community and are within 4 blocks of the major attractions and restaurants.

I've stayed at several Courtyards recently and this location is average at best. The rooms and lobby have been updated, but the hallways and elevator are quite dated, not to mention there is only one elevator. I will admit the price was very competitive and the shuttle was great, I just wasn't wowed by this location as I have by others recently.

Adam,
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at our property. We do operate a Historic Property which does present some challenging obsticles when it comes to interior decorating, although I am glad to say that we will be undergoing a renovation later this year that will encompass all of our guest rooms and corridors to further blend todays modern feel with the charm of our hisory. I also see that you only used one of our elevators. Because of the size of our building we do have two separate elevators one on each side of our building to allow our guests to move around quickly. Once again thank you for reviewing our hotel and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

I've been working with Ryan Tarrant and the Courtyard Marriott for several years during the Annual Sunscreen Film Festival. We have a large number of individuals from around the country and the world fly in to attend the event. The friendliness of the staff, cleanliness of the rooms and the hotel, the attention to detail and the effort to make every guest as happy as possible is second to none.

I cannot express enough how outstanding our experience is each and every year. You'll find no better spot in downtown St. Pete for your stay.
