The Hilton St. Petersburg is located in the downtown St. Pete district. It has 333 guest rooms and over 33,000 square feet of meeting space.
I have stayed in TONS of Hilton Hotels, and usually they create fabulous experiences. This one did not. Pluses: They were great with transportation in their vans. Minuses: While the Group Booking agent Deborah Sanders is great to work with, she can do little with their rates or their offerings. THIS IS NOT A HILTON OWNED HOTEL, it is a franchise. Therefore they do not follow Hilton policies. We booked out 23 rooms for 2 nights and did not receive a free room for the bride and groom, nor even a discount! We requested early check in, and our room was not ready - even after 2 calls to make sure it would be. They did not hand out all our out of town bags. We were assured their best rate given our Diamond Member status, and our walk in guests received a better rate than those in the group block. Rooms were okay, but many people commented on the semi-religious welcome left at the bedside. While I normally dislike giving a review if I do not have positive things to say, I feel I may save another couple the hassle we had. Please look elsewhere!
