Nice size room and very nice large bathroom. Thick plush towels.

Location, amenities (restaurant and 2 bars)

Perfect downtown location right across from the water and a park, with beautiful view of the the pier. Can walk to everything. Very clean nice room. Rooftop bar. No pool. Upscale Eclectic vibe. Would recommend. We will be back.

Property is located in a perfect location for walking around downtown with easy access to shopping, restaurants and night life. The hotel property is historic, but not outdated. Our room was spacious, clean and beautifully appointed. Staff were very courteous and helpful throughout our stay. Our only complaint about the room was there were too few towel racks in the bathroom, but that is hardly major complaint in my view. Just keeping it honest.

You always feel included in the night life at the Birch, even if you just want to have a drink in your room and turn in early.

Check in was awkward...especially given staff concern with waiting car. Access to room was limited to entry around restaurants and staff member questioned our access to hotel elevator. Room was comfortable and clean and hotel location was excellent.

Oh my god. So nice. Thought I died and went to heaven. I’ve eaten at the restaurant other times- amazing. Breakfast was so so. Staff- excellent. Location-excellent. Upstairs cocktail bar- wonderful. My room was large, beautiful. Had a bit of trouble with the tv but I’m bad at that sort of thing. Would go there again and again. Wish it was less $$$$

This is an excellent boutique hotel conveniently located on the St Pete waterfront. The hotel is nicely appointed and the beds are super comfey.

We spent 2 nights at The Birchwood. Our suite had a dirty laundry bin and room service trays outside our door. The interior lighting was very poor and we had difficulty reading in the room. Our last night consisted of very little sleep for there was an altercation outside our suite with 2 women (staying in the hotel) and 2 men with throwing of glass bottles; obviously a lot of alcohol had been consumed. The authorities had to remove the men and then we tried to sleep! The roof top bar may be a problem with so many people consuming lots of alcohol. It is not a quiet place!

This is a special place. Our room was fabulous with a led rainfall shower and a spacious claw foot bathtub.
