Hotel was clean and staff were friendly. Business rooms were nice and internet worked quickly to allow work to be completed quickly. Hotel staff gave me a razor since I forgot one. Would definitely stay at the hotel again if in the area.

We stayed at this hotel for a Tampa Bay Rays baseball game and loved it. The rooms were modern, clean, and attractive. The highlight of this hotel was the staff. During check in we were greeted by a nice girl (can't remember her name, but she was from Amman, Jordan) who turned my mood from traffic into a relaxed, good mood immediately. We visited the HHonors Lounge, which was top notch. It's not often you go to a place where EVERYONE, including every housekeeper greeted you and were pleasant. Good job Hilton...we will be back.

My stay at this hotel was an overall wonderful experience. The location is great! The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The hotel itself was very inviting in appearance and service. The food was excellent. I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay again.

We spent two nights there last month so we could go to the Dali Museum before the Warhol exhibit closed. The location is perfect for that reason- it is directly across the street which saves you a $5 parking fee or a wait for the trolley. .

The front desk staff was very warm and welcoming. I was more than a little disappointed in the room. As Hilton gold level members, we usually get an upgraded room. This was not a deluxe room at all, despite the paper they handed me that said all gold members got upgraded rooms. It was the standard 350 square foot business type room with a single upholstered chair and one other desk chair. There is really no place for a couple to sit except for the bed.

The bathroom was tiny with the standard useless tub and single sink. The safe was also useless- a very small hole in the closet wall with a metal key that you would have to keep track of if in fact your could get anything in it.

The executive lounge was very nice and has great views of the water and the executive airport next door. It was very nice to sit there in the morning and watch the planes take off. I really like the 24 hour open lounge concept. There was a refrigerator with soda, juice and water always available.
The evening happy hour had free cheap beer and wine. (seriously) Both nights we were there they also had chicken wings. The continental breakfast was much better. Skip the evening fare and go down to one of the bay front restaurants.

One problem we encountered was the air conditioning. It didn't work. The room was stifling when we arrived. I put the thermostat to 65 degrees and waited for 30 minutes. It was slightly cooler when we left for dinner, but not much. We returned late and it was tolerable but still not cool. After a restless night, I reported it in the morning. They assured me that it would be taken care of immediately. It wasn't.

The front desk did send up a very nice plate of chocolate dipped strawberries to the room in recognition of my birthday. That kind of touch is the Hilton level of service that reinforces my brand loyalty.

Overall- I would give the staff great marks. The facility, not so much.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and your visit to St. Pete. I understand there were some problems with your stay, and hopefully I can clear them up. Gold members do get free upgrades, when available, but that is the key part; when available. We can't kick someone out who is paying for a suite in order to give you a free upgrade. Our honors lounge provides complimentary beer, wine and hot food every night for our Gold and Diamond members, as well as snacks throughout the day. As far as the AC is concerned, we will use your comments to see that the issue is fixed. Please come see us again soon!

The van and driver smell of body odor. Stay there if you like to hear other toilets flush. Do not ask for a refund, they will not do what is correct Management will take care of a problem. They will give you every excuse why they can not fix a problem. Try any other hotel in town, you will have a better time.

Nice hotel; clean rooms, big TV (channels weren't in HD though). Rooms have refrigerator, coffee maker and iron, but no microwave.

Downtown has many restaurants and bars and it's a short walk - seemed to be pretty safe as well. There's also a Publix supermarket / CVS within a quick walk.

Onsite restaurant and bar and a Starbucks, but it gets quite busy in the morning. Set aside extra time if you plan on visiting it.

Room in the parking lot for small boats and there is a ramp almost across the street.

WIFI is a bit slow, but is accessible.
