The Hitlon Bayfront is conveniently located downtown and within walking distance to the Mahaffey Theater, shops, restaurants, and more. There is a Publix grocery store across the street and a CVS a block away. They have a Starbucks Cafe in the lobby and a small shop in the lobby if you do not feel like walking across the street to CVS or Publix. The bar in the lobby is nice and the night we stayed, the barmaid was super friendly and thoughtful.
The hotel is pet friendly but there is a fee for bringing your furry children. We had two small dogs with us and we took them to the lobby bar. The barmaid brought out two bowls of water, without us having to ask. That is good service.
The rooms have been refreshed. Bedding is comfortable, carpet looks very nice. They have flat screen TVs and a nice desk with a lamp if work needs to be done. Bathrooms are clean and comfortable. The mirror has lights embedded in it and the lights could be a little brighter but over all the rooms are comfortable and nice. They have a nice pool area but we didn't use it during ouf stay because temps were too cool. Parking is a whopping $14 but it is not out of the standard for other hotels.More
