Postcard Inn On The Beach
Saint Pete Beach
For its vintage 1950s hang-10 style alone, the Postcard Inn leads the pack in St Pete Beach...
Shephard's Beach Resort
In for a penny, in for a pound. Do Clearwater right at Shephards, a very popular resort that keeps the beat with a lounge, nightclub and two tiki bars, all with live music and DJs, plus two restaurants and an all-you-can-eat buffet...
Gram's Place Bn B/Hostel
Named for Gram Parsons, this low-key hostel is as ramshackle as an aging country music star, and as charismatic...
The Pier Hotel

Courtyard By Marriott Tampa Downtown
Has 141 typically good rooms.
Westin Harbour Island
This Westin does a good job at convincing you not to leave the confines of its 177 acres – it’s that relaxing. Sitting on its own island in downtown Tampa it really is an urban oasis: stroll the private boardwalk to really appreciate your location...
Loews Don Ce Sar Hotel
St Pete Beach
Like the Vinoy, it's historical, posh and pink, but this one's located out at the beach.
Alden Suites A Beachfront Resort
St Pete Beach
This well-managed, well-kept property stands out as a great choice for families looking for a longer stay. The 143 good-size suites have standard decor, but are fresh, spotlessly clean, and come with nicely appointed full kitchens...
Tampa Airport Marriott
This intimate, Mediterranean-style hotel isn’t pompous or exclusive, but the waterfront suites have every right to be...
