Hilton St Petersburg Bayfront
Ranked #12 of 43 Hotels in St. Petersburg
Reviewed 6 December 2013

We've stayed here twice on our annual Florida vacation, part of a 3-4 week trip. This location is expensive, but it is very convenient to downtown attractions and dining options. The rooms with balconies are very spacious and very quiet. Breakfast was very good as well.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms are big, quite and comfortable.

Rude sarcastic and completely clueless
front desk. Dirty rooms. Constant construction waking you early in the morning, so you go to breakfast and enter an elevator filled with more construction workers. Human waste backing up in the tub and the front desks response .....Run hot water AND HUNG UP. HORRIBLE!! KEEP LOOKING, there are so many other hotels there.

Room Tip: GO TO ANOTHER HOTEL!! Look for one that is knowledgable. If you call the front desk, you can form...

We take pride in our service here and to hear that anyone at the front desk was or sarcastic is a bit suprising but something we will certainly look into.

Recently i spent close to a week at this property & it was by far one of the best properties i stayed in. I didnt dine in the hotel for lunch & dinner but the breakfast had a good spread of the hot & cold. Since it was walking distance to my work place, i found it real value for money.

The front desk seemed to be worried about checking in/out Not about helping customers. Room was only average,small bathroom was tight and no water pressure Construction work started very early Request for an additional blanket was forgotten by desk. Safe was locked without being closed so could no use. Good point was location. Could walk to all places along waterfront

This is a good Hilton that is walking distance to everything in the downtown area: restaurants, bars, the pier, Dali Museum, etc. The service was excellent throughout the hotel. The pool is large and clean. The parking can be a challenge when the hotel is full. Walking to dinner and not driving in the evening can help solve this problem. The Executive Lounge has great views, but is not large enough for this size of hotel. Overall, this is a really good hotel. I have stayed here 4 times over the past 2 years.

The hotel is very clean but the mattress was too soft for me because I have a bad back and need a reasonably hard surface to sleep on. The rooms filter the street noise but not from inside the building.

Rude front desk staff. You have to pay an additional $14 per day for parking and you may not even get parking as they have events in their hotel all the time. Making a reservation was difficult as I felt the lady was going to decide if I could stay there or not. This is the worst service I have received from a Hilton

Ruby Ann R,
We are all sorry for the service you recieved while staying with us. It should be noted though, that the secured parking fee(which for a city we find to be very fair) is always refunded if parking for some reason becomes unavailable. We do have many large functions that take place at our hotel. Alothough we man the gate to make sure that only guests are parking, the lot does still fill up sometimes. Pleas know that we are using your comments to better our guest experience in the future.
