Hotels on the beach for guests from out of town, where are some nearby but good hotels?

With the time of year and location of your wedding, you might want to book a hotel downtown St Pete. If your guests include kids, teens and adults, downtown has things to do that everyone can walk to for all ages. Otherwise, book in advance because Jan is prime time. Middle price for a nice place you might try the TradeWinds.

There are plenty of hotels on St Pete Beach to suit every taste and budget.

If you want something with a bit of character, check out (speak to Sheila and tell her Jeff from Simple Weddings referred you and she will take great care of you!)

If you want "upscale", check out the Don Cesar.

For mid-range beach resorts, my favorites are the Tradewinds Island Grand and the Sirata.

And for a "home away from home" feel, with kitchens and living rooms in every suite, check out the Residence Inn on Treasure Island.

We are actually members of a program where you can get pretty good discounts on these last few. Check out the "Florida Hotel Discounts" section at the bottom of our home page at!

And of course, good luck with your wedding plans!!!

It depends on how much you are willing to pay, or how much your guests can afford. There is anything from the Don Cesar to the Best Western.

Consider The Doubletree Beach Resort, it's clean, the service is amazing, and the views can't be beat! It's also pretty quiet at night, so you can enjoy the waves crashing and the birds, rather than the people, squawking at night!

There are so many options on St. Pete Beach. Like others have said it really depends on how much you want to spend. We have enjoyed staying a the Sirata in the past, but January can be a high season. Another thing to think about is, do you want a really quiet relaxing place or a hotel with a lot of activity and beach bars?

I definitely agree with [email protected] - The Doubletree Beach Resort has some reasonable options and is in a beautiful location. Also check out the Trade Winds Resort. The Grand Plaza is really nice and at the center of the beach so you are within walking distance of many activities and beach shops. Please feel free to e-mail me at [email protected] if there is anything I can help with or if you need some additional ideas.

You work very hard the whole year and you deserve YOUR holiday! Take your own time for yourself, to relax, to enjoy new nice places to visit or just stand on the beach in front of the sea!...
