The Location: The property is very easy to find. It's at the end to the left of SR 60 (Gulf-to-Bay), can't miss the 16- story pink building as you are driving over the bridge (about 30 minutes for TPA). Parking: The hotel entrance is on the main road, Gulfview blvd and parking is just past the entrance to the right up on a ramp. Parking is $14 per day, wish they offer free parking to Diamonds. Check-in: Check-in was efficient and courteous, there are 3 check-in kiosks. We were greeted promptly and as Diamond, we were offered Diamond amenity (F&Bs) or points. We got upgraded to the one-bedroom suite (pics) as Diamond. Regency Club: Since the hotel does not have a Regency club, we were offered breakfast at the restaurant and the bill will be taken off at check-out. Breakfast menu choices include A la carte or buffet ($20/per). The Room: The suite has a full kitchen with dishes, blender, microwave and 2 full bathrooms, a dinning table with 4 chairs, 2 flat screen TVs, balcony with 6 lounge chairs, a pull out sofa bed. Excellent Wifi signal in room, coin laundry ($1.50) is available on our floor (10th). The verdict: Overall, very impressed with the property of this quality right on the beach. It gives the Don Cecar a run for their money on the Pinellas county gulf beaches.
