Elevator was out of service and had to walk up to 4th floor. Not very clean. Dead roach on the floor was the topper.

The location is amazing but behind an old structure, it’s extremely noisy and poorly maintained. Parking instruction are poor.

No place to park to check in…had to park and take my bags a couple of blocks to check in. Room above nightclub in lower level so had to deal with loud music until 2am. Understand that this building is over 100 years old and has no soundproofing. Quaint building but not a real place to get a good nights rest.

This is a historic hotel in the middle of Downtown St. Pete. Convenient to everything. The hotel is older so it isn't packed with amenities, however, it was comfortable and very reasonably priced. This is the 2nd time I have stayed here and I had a nice stay both times.
