Hilton St Petersburg Bayfront
Ranked #11 of 43 Hotels in St. Petersburg
Reviewed 5 June 2014

With a slew of hotel choices in the St. Pete area, the Hilton stands out for me because of it's amazing customer service, excellent value, and prime location. I would recommend parking your car in one of the public parking lots, though, to avoid the $16 parking fee. (It's only about 2 blocks away and is a fraction of the cost.)

Great stay, great room service and helpfulness of all staff. Highly recommend for the price and location! Close to the Dali museum. Quiet comfortable rooms and good fitness center. Definitely a great value and experience for the price!

We spent two nights at the Bayfront at the start of a ten day tour down the Gulf Coast. Finding the hotel was fairly easy and there were plenty of parking spaces available and just a short walk to reception. The welcome at reception was excellent, quick and effihcient. We were handed a bag with two bottles of water and a packet of snacks. As it was my birthday the next day the hotel said that they would not charge us for the parking.
The room 905, was on the ninth floor and more or less on the corner of the property looking out northwards and over the Tropicana Field and bay. It was at the end of the corridor and exremely quiet. The room was perfect with all the basics. I did find the safe a bit difficult to use as I am only 5ft 2 and the safe was about 5ft 5 off the ground so I was a bit scared of leaving something. There was a coffee maker with plenty of tea and coffee although the cups were paper. It took us a while to set up the wi fi but it was fairly fast. The bathroom was't huge but well maintained and there were plenty of towels and toiletries. The shower was how it should be, hot and plenty of pressure.
We had breakfast included in the room rate, which was the buffet. It was fairly good, the fresh fruit was excellent but I thought there were far too many pastries and a bit heavy on fat. There was no soy milk, no soy yogurts and no non wheat alternatives. The temperature of the restaurant was very low. I had to wear long trousers and a cardigan to enjoy breakfast. Due to the extreme cold we didn't have dinner at the hotel but preferred the restaurants nearby.
The swimming pool was a lovely place to cool down after a day of sightseeing and was nice and quiet. We did find the towels there rather small, you needed at least two each to cover the lounger!
The Bayfront is ideally situated, we flew into Tampa Airport and within 30 minutes were at the hotel. It's just a short walk from downtown St Petersburg and there are lots of restaurants nearby. There is also a Publix supermarket almost next to the hotel. It's a great base for exploring the Gulf coast, we visited St Pete's Beach and Clearwater and lots of other lovely places.
The Hilton Bayfront is a lovely hotel, well maintained, with very attentive and pleasant staff. The situation is ideal with lots of places to eat within walking distance. I willl certainly return.

Great location but not so friendly or welcoming to the average guest. The dining was so slow for a "quick" lunch and we waited over 40 minutes. So we didn't bother to go back for other meals. Too much smoking around the grounds to sit outside ourselves. Hotel should have an area for that and keep the grounds clear for rest of guests.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am sorry to hear that you did not feel welcomed by our staff. We strive for, and are often praised for, our friendly and courteous staff. I am sorry tyou did not experience that. Our hotel does have a designated smoking area located near the entrance to the pool, with benches and ashtrays, however some guests do choose to smoke in other areas outside the property. Unfortunately, for the non smoker, as long as they are not in front of the hotel entrance there is nothing we can do.Please come back and experience us for what we really are. Hope to see you soon!

This is an updated Hilton with a great location! I would still like to see Hilton spend a little more on the bathroom amenities. The staff is friendly, accommodating and helpful! I have stayed here before the remodel and this is a major improvement.

That is all. Your valet service is much appreciated and your drivers were personable and accomodating.
We did have to wait a short while for our room to be ready, 15 minutes or so. We did get the adjoining rooms as i requested. Maybe that why it took longer to get our rooms ready.

We liked the Hotel as it is very well located and the facilities that we used: lobby, room, pool, restaurant, shuttle service were all up to Hilton standards. The Restaurant is not so good. The service and the cordial and helpful attitude of the people working there is nothing short of outstanding but the quality of the food leaves a lot to be desired
