Charming lobby and great location for evening activities as well as convenient access to I-175 and Dali Museum. Room was average size but bath was small. Parking is the main drawback as there is no arrangement with City parking garage. Extra parking charges were not disclosed until we arrived.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Hollander Hotel. It's a great little place in downtown St. Petersburg with pool, nice bar and wonderful food. Our room was on the first floor, opening right onto the pool and bar. We were initially concerned it would be loud, but no fears. We slept like babies in our super comfy king bed. The bathroom was tiny but perfectly fine.
The hotel is pet friendly and while we didn't bring our dogs this time, we plan to return for a long weekend and bring them next time.
Definitely worth a stay!

This Comfort inn is a bit off the beaten path, but in the center of a lot of stuff, especially if you have plans in St Pete AND Tampa.
Check-in was pleasant, fast, and friendly, but apparently new staff or a bit disorganized as he didn't ask (and I forgot to offer after the long drive down) for my frequent stay card from Comfort inn.
I asked about a downstairs room (parking lot was almost empty on a Sunday) but was told there was only one room left. He found me after I got my stuff upstairs with the one luggage cart and said there had been a mistake and hat there was a room downstairs, but at that point it wasn't worth changing.
Getting upstairs, I heard the cleaning lady complaining with someone that this wasn't her normal job, but maybe staff turnover, so no biggie.
I went to get ice according to the room info, but not there, nothing. I asked at the desk and he said at the end of the hall, where I asked. The cleaning lady corrected him that the 3rd floor no longer has an icemaker and said to go to the ground or 2nd floor (I can't do steps so this took a while).
Jacuzzi tub is great, and for that price gets the room an extra star right there!!
Nice breakfast, but small room so one day we couldn't get a seat, had to wait for the crowd to die down, but staff kept plenty of food out despite the crowd, great job!!
Check out was easy at the desk, but no luggage cart.they seem to have lost one and don't want to look.

It was nice. Staff was friendly and helpful. In walking distance to many bars, restaurants and a nice farmers market every Saturday morning. I was annoyed with the extra hidden fees. My room total ended up being 50 dollars more than I had originally thought due parking, wifi and other hidden fees. No huge deal, just would rather know the real total when booking.
The Vinoy is a lovely old hotel and is in a beautiful area. It is a good place to park the car for a couple days and just walk around and enjoy the scenery and restaurants. There aren't many shops left there, mostly dining places, but the area is lovely. I think it is about time, however, that the Vinoy entered the 21st century and offered free wifi, at least in the lobby!
Many of St. Petersburg’s chief attractions are downtown, such as the Salvador Dali Museum. Jazz bars reside on Central Avenue. This major artery passes near Tropicana Field, home to the Rays, Tampa’s Major League franchise. The popular St. Pete Pier entertainment and shopping complex includes an aquarium and fishing dock. Don’t miss the 50,000 plant and flower species at the Sunken Gardens.
