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.

The city of St Petersburg Florida was once again named the #1 Arts Destination for Mid-Sized City by the American Style Magazine. For the second year in a row, St Petersburg won this honor. 1-11-1111 the new Salvador Dali Museum opened. The new Chihuly Collection is very successful and of course the Museum of Fine Arts continues to shine. Come for a weekend and experience what St Petersburg has to offer. In between the Dali and the Chihuly is our Simms Team at ALVA International, Inc. real estate office. Stop in and say hello.
