Beautiful hotel! Loved the Marilyn Monroe homages. The room we had was amazing! Almost like a suite with 2 Queen beds in different rooms. Would definitely stay again!

Nice hotel
This hotel wears its history well. It has a sense of faded splendour and has had to retrofit to adapt to modern expectations. So our room was a slightly odd shape to incorporate a narrow, rather awkward bathroom. But everything was very comfortable and very clean and the staff were all lovely - very welcoming and helpful. The room included a microwave, small fridge, hair dryer. There was an effective air con unit. It was quite noisy so we left it off overnight. The parking lot (free) was across the quiet side street and always had plenty of free spaces. The location worked well for us - 15 minutes drive to downtown St Pete’s but also good access going north or south. There was nothing of much interest within easy walking distance though. We’d happily stay here again.

Lovely place
The front desk and housekeeping staff are very friendly and helpful. We especially appreciated the helpful advice on how to access and use the local bus systems and for a delayed check out on our last day. The breakfast is awesome as well. Rooms were cleaned daily.

Crystal Bay Hotel
It should be noted that this hotel is not technically on the water, although one street off the bay with nothing in between blocking the view. It is a very nice little boutique hotel with very very nice people who took wonderful care of us. For us, we really enjoyed being the short distance away from all the activity in the resort/beach area on Gulf Blvd yet all was still accessible to us.
