Positive Reviews

Excellent downtown location..

Guests rave about the hotel's location, right across the street from the Salvadore Dali Museum and surrounded by restaurants and shops, including a pharmacy and Publix. Baseball fans love the free shuttle to Tropicana Field, a quick 2-mile trip.

Clean, comfortable rooms with an ocean view..

Guests often describe the rooms as comfortable and quiet with effective air conditioning, an important feature in toasty St. Petersburg. The mini fridges are also a well appreciated amenity. Rooms on the higher floors offer beautiful views of the city and Tampa Bay. The pool is also widely described as inviting, with guests noting that the area is partially shaded during the day.

Kudos to the staff..

Guests often describe the front desk team and shuttle drivers as polite, friendly, and professional. Compliments also go to the chef at Tangerine; guests note that there are plenty of nicely presented hot and cold options available at the breakfast buffet.

Negative Reviews

Small bathrooms..

Though it has been updated over the years, the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront is a few decades old. Guests often describe the bathrooms as very small by modern standards, and more than a few have run into troubles with the aging plumbing.

Parking costs extra..

Guests often report that the parking lot is full to the brim, which is particularly irritating for some as there is an extra charge to park and no valet option.

The nose knows..

Several guests have reported a "musty" or "mildewy" smell in the rooms or common areas. Though many arrive to find their rooms very clean, others have found housekeeping a bit inconsistent over the duration of their visit. Infrequent vacuuming and shortages on toiletries are among the top issues. Some who reported these or other concerns to the front desk have received an ineffective or even impolite response.
