This marina-side resort, complete with Hacienda-style Spanish architecture, is situated between Long Key Beach and McPherson Bayou, and is just six miles from John’s Pass Village & Boardwalk – a quaint turn-of-the-century fishing town, great for shopping, dining and activities such as shelling tours & dolphin watching. This is an ideal hotel for families or couples looking to make the most of the Gulf of Mexico’s excellent beaches, attractions, scenery and wildlife on their St Pete Beach holiday.
Hotel Zamora, a Kimpton Hotel is the latest boutique property to grace the St Pete Beach holiday scene and, while referencing the past with its whitewashed Mediterranean façade, also embraces today’s luxury travel trends with mod cons like free wifi, HDTVs and iPod-compatible clock radios in every room. A recipient of numerous awards, most notably Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice and USA Today 10 Best, this sleek, modern property comprises a framework of deluxe, spacious suites whose balconies afford superb vistas over the Gulf of Mexico and Intracoastal Waterway, while Tampa Bay’s fashionable restaurants and designer shops are close by too.
The best views in the house, however, are found at the 360º Rooftop lounge. Offering a unique panoramic perspective, it’s a thrilling venue from which to appreciate spectacular sunsets accompanied by a signature sundowner. Joining 360º Rooftop in the food & beverage department is the sublime Castille Restaurant. This destination eatery combines wild-catch seafood with culinary traditions from the Med and Mexico for eclectic dining. Castille Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner & cocktails in a casual setting that’s both sidewalk bistro and seaside grill.
