Hampton Inn and Suites in downtown St Petersburg

 The Hampton Inn and Suites in downtown St Petersburg has just had a $500,000 renovation. It’s hard to believe that it’s been over 8 years since it opened. The 91 room hotel had a change in management as well. As of January 1st, Highpointe Hotel Corp is the new manager.

Since St Petersburg is an Arts City, they have commissioned glass blown art works. The goal of the lobby renovation was to make it more social. This is a common theme in hotel lobbies now, as evidenced by the Renaissance Vinoy lobby renovation this past year. Hotel guests no longer want to be secluded away in their rooms; they want to bring their laptops to common areas and interact with other guests. If Starbucks  and coffee shops are the Third Place, perhaps hotel lobbies are the Fourth Place.
