Hip, cool and casual are just some of the buzzwords lauded upon this lovely boutique hotel in St Pete’s Beach. Occupying a spectacular beachfront location on the west coast of Florida, very close to downtown St Petersburg, a short drive from Tampa and next to the warm waters of the Florida Gulf Coast, Postcard Inn in St Pete’s is a throwback to the bygone days of the great American road trip.
Calm and unpretentious, the Postcard Inn offers spacious ‘dorm-style’ rooms, each individually appointed, that evoke memories of lazy summer college days. Of course, these are no university halls, and each residence offers lavish comfort with plenty of lovely modern luxuries to boot, including large flatscreen TV and free Wifi. Alterntaively why not make the screen a social occasion with the outdoor cinema facilites.
The resort is populated by clean, kempt gardens, where fire pits are surrounded by deck chairs just begging to be used through the balmy evenings. The swimming pool centrepiece is charmingly designed in that inimitable ‘50s beachside resort fashion. Meanwhile the mouthwatering scent of brilliant burgers and sizzling seafood fills the air from the PCI Bar & Grill, and as the evening draws in, the PCI Beach Bar comes alive.
