Close to downtown
This hotel is close to downtown St. Petersburg. You will have nice views, Saturday Morning Market (seasonal), festivities, bikes, shops, food, night life, and parks. Plenty for singles, couples, and families. Any downtown races are easy to get to and normally within walking distance, to and from. Forget parking, this hotel will afford you walking distance to all. Also, if you’re interested and in season you’re right by Al Lang Stadium (soccer) and Tropicana Field.
I’ve completed MCM twice, multiple halves, paced halves, 15k, 10ks, 5ks, and Ragnar. I’ve ran trail, obstacle, and road. I’m working towards my first Sprint Tri and expanding my trail running this year.
