I spent a Saturday night at The Cordova Inn in beautiful downtown St Petersburg Florida. Location great for walking to restaurants, art galleries, concert venues,pubs,and most important beautiful waterfront. The hotel very clean, beds comfortable, furnished with lovely vintage pieces and a big inviting well shaded front porch. Wine and appetizers served at 5:00 , delicious as well as morning...

I went with 2 friends and the hotel is very clean and very elegant. We loved sitting outside on the patio at night and the complimentary breakfast is one of the best ones I've ever had, hands down! The towel exchange was interesting it was just unfortunate we didn't get clean towels on the last day of our stay despite...

Four days away from life led to St. Petersburg, FL and the Cordova Inn. The staff wanted to please, made lots of good recommendations on things to see and do. Inn right next to the free trolley stop and that's a good way to check out different areas of city. You can walk a block or two or four and...

My boyfriend and I enjoyed our stay, mostly because everything we needed was with walking distance. Our room was located on the second floor facing the Main Street; highly recommend!! The staff was very friendly and can I just say we were welcomed with complementary wine and hors d'oeuvre, yummmm.

My experience was great, the staff, in particular, was helpful, honest and thoughtful. This is a casual, boutique style hotel, not for everyone. The lobby is so beautifully charming...comfy vintage pieces along with a dining area that sparkles in the morning sunlight. My mom-in-law and I made use of the covered porch every morning to read, & the 3 wrought...

First of all I think whether or not you will enjoy this hotel is totally dependent upon what you ike and what you're looking for in a place to stay. This is a vintage hotel. The location is great! You can walk to all sorts of things: the beach, shopping, restaurants. There is a grocery store and a pharmacy not...

My wife and I tried this hotel during a visit to St Pete since we were unable to get a room at the place we love for part of our sty. The location and reviews for the Cordova seemed pretty good so we tried it. The location is great, the common areas are small, but OK. The rooms are rather...

whitehorsetravellers, Thank you for the feedback. We appreciate your business and the opportunity to communicate with you and future guests. The rooms at Cordova aren't huge but aren't tiny. The hotel was built in 1921 and back then the size of rooms and bathrooms weren't what we are all used to in today's new construction. The windows on the West...

The price was right & the location was perfect. Kayla was very friendly and helpful. We were lucky to get upgraded to a suite--furniture was old & antique looking but really enjoyed the room. It had a living room, 2 bathrooms, and a small bar area with mini fridge. The lobby is charming and outside is beautiful. We missed breakfast...
