Hotel Review: Hyatt Place St.Pete/Downtown

Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of staying overnight at The Hyatt Place St. Pete/Downtown.

I hope you were able to catch up with my adventures at the hotel via my Instagram Stories, as I spent most of my time documenting my stay on there.

See what I loved about this hotel and why you should consider staying here in the near future.

The Hotel Location

The location of this hotel is prime if you plan on going out at night in Downtown St. Pete.

The hotel is located across the street from Jannus Live, a popular live music venue.  Even if you don't have concert tickets to enjoy the music from the front row, you can easily listen on at The Hyatt Place for a similar experience.

You also won't need your car at all when you stay here! Park your car in their parking garage and explore the city on your feet.

Simply put on your best pair of walking shoes, or heels in my case, and start walking down Central Ave to find some bars and restaurants for the evening.

The location of The Hyatt Place in St. Pete is unparalleled. Compared to other hotels in the area, this one has the closest distance to nightlife, such as MacDinton's and The One Night Stand.

The Hotel Rooms

As you search for affordable hotels in the St. Petersburg area, be sure to add The Hyatt Place to the top of your list.

Each of the 175 rooms is available to accommodate you and your guests! All of the rooms offer insane high-rise views of downtown, no matter where your room is located for the duration of your stay.

The rooms feature a Hyatt Grand Bed, flat-screen TV, mini fridge, air conditioning, and our room had a cozy corner sleeper-sofa. The rooms are sophisticated, clean, modern, and offer tons of space for you to spread out!

The Hotel Amenities

Free Wi-Fi is a must in 2018.

The Hyatt Place offers complimentary Wi-Fi with your stay, and it's fast.

You can also access a giant pool on the seventh floor. Pack your favorite bathing suit to take a peaceful morning dip, like I did during my stay!

The pool sits on the rooftop outdoors so you can soak up plenty of sun as you lounge on one of their many expandable chairs.

They have towels and restrooms available near the pool, too. I wore THIS BATHING SUIT from Target, by the way! It's a new one-piece cut out suit.

The gym/fitness center also waits for you if you plan on getting in a quick workout before choosing your dinner destination for the night. The stunning city views of St. Pete will capture your attention while you lift weights for sure!

I did not check out the gym during my stay, but I'm sure it has your standard equipment for the perfect workout experience.

The Hotel Food

The HYBar offers a variety of tasty treats for you to snack on for lunch.

My sister and I tried one of their signature drinks, the Pink Streets Sparkler, and it tasted delicious paired with our BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders and Meatball Sliders.

Try one of their handmade cocktails and look over the menu before you decide on the right meal to feed you and your family or significant other.

The HYBar is located on the first floor of the hotel, so you easily stop by for a bite or drink during your stay. The bar opens at 4 p.m. and we were lucky enough to listen to live music on Friday night.

The drinks are also great if you want to experience a taste of locally crafted brews. On tap, you can find some favorite beers from Green Bench Brewing Co, a local brewery in town.

Free breakfast, anyone? If you wake up in time you can experience a buffet of classic breakfast items waiting for you down in the lobby. I started my morning right with a dip in the pool before heading down to grab breakfast in the lobby.

I had some freshly flipped pancakes, oatmeal, fruit, and yogurt in addition to a hot cup of my favorite Tazo green tea.

Add The Hyatt Place to your list of favorite hotels in the St. Pete area. The staff was welcoming and told me exactly what to expect during my stay. I would recommend Hyatt Place if you are traveling for business or pleasure!

Thank you to The Hyatt Place for hosting me for the night! All opinions are my own. 


  1. My husband and I love staying at the Hyatt Place! Always clean, friendly, and how can you beat tasty free breakfast
