This hotel's location in Downtown St Augustine is wonderful..close to everything and lots of sightseeing and restaurants that you can walk to. The front desk a little indifferent..we had to check in early as we had an early flight..we check in at 9..while I did not expect to check in at that time, I had hoped that they would have...

Dear avamariaPhiladelphia, I appreciate you taking the time to review our property, and I hope you enjoyed your stay other than not being able to check in early. The front desk staff was following the proper procedures to allow the housekeeping department enough time to clean the rooms properly. Housekeepers have the hardest job at the hotel, and work really...

We are long time local residents and decided to celebrate our anniversary with dinner and hotel in our Ancient City. Even though the BW Bayfront is absolutely perfectly located, we always passed it up because of a very old fashioned look. But SURPRISE SURPRISE, it is wonderfully updated, still reflecting a bygone era, but lacking no comfort. The retro feel...

Dear Carol B, Since we are in the Downtown Historic District of St. Augustine, there is a ton going on during the day and into the night with all the restaurants and bars around the property. The guest rooms are definitely smaller than a newer, more modern hotel. Our building is over 60 years old, and it's difficult to make...
