Exceptional 10.0
Charm to the max!
It was wonderful. We were treated like Royalty.
Marie, us2 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Definitely exceeded my expectations.
The Birchwood is a terrific hotel located off of Beach Drive in downtown St. Pete. The hotel is within walking distance of many shops, museums, restaurants and bars, as well as the New St. Pete Pier, a must-see for anyone traveling to St. Pete. The check-in process was easy and the staff was very friendly. The layout and traditional decor of the king suite reminded me of older and established hotels up north. The food and drinks at Birch and Vine restaurant downstairs was excellent. I did not make it up to Canopy, as the number of people waiting in line to gain access to the roof-top bar made me a little uncomfortable (even with masks) given the current Covid-19 situation. Overall, however, my experience at the Birchwood definitely exceeded my expectations and I will be back.

We are return customers to the Birchwood. The staff is wonderful here. During this Covid pandemic there was no exception to the prompt friendly service that we have come to expect when visiting. Everyone was wearing their masks, but you could see the smiles in their eyes as the greeted us upon check in. The food was fantastic, the views are amazing and the claw foot tubs are absolutely lovely. Thank you to the staff at Birchwood for keeping up the great work!
Tonya, us1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Great Stay. Just noisy.
The hotel is absolutely beautiful! Very romantic and in a great spot, which is why we booked it. Service was friendly, although they do seem to be understaffed. If you are in awe of the pictures of the room, it really is just as beautiful inside! The shower and bath were both awesome. The only thing I would point out was it is very noisy with the rooftop bar which sounds like a night club later in the night. It sounded like a club until about midnight, and then a bunch of drunk folk and teenagers were running around the halls until 2 am. Given that our trip was a getaway, it was fine. I just wouldn’t bring little kids. The rooftop bar itself is very beautiful, especially in the early evening. If you are concerned with COVID, avoid St. Petersburg in general. I didn’t notice any extra cleaning besides at the front desk, and most people are not enforcing any social distancing in the surrounding areas.

Great Hotle
Very nice rooms. Loved the tub. Beds were very comfortable. Good place to bring family and central to restaurants and parks.
Jennifer, us1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Great room with a few inconviences.
This is a very nice hotel. It would be closer to a 5 star except they miss out on a few basics. There are no laundry bags, there are too few places to hang towels in the bathroom. Only one chair, not two to sit in. Just little things that you automatically get in a chain hotel. Also, we were given a handicapped room, not sure why, and then we had to move after one night. But, we were moved into the exact same handicapped room in the floor below. It didnt make much sense.
