For visitors who have more than beach time on their mind, the Hilton Bayfront in St. Petersburg places them among the city's other charms -- perhaps it's not right on the sand, but other activities are walkable. To clear up the beach question right away, the popular Gulf Coast shoreline is about a 20-minute drive west. The hotel is on the city's bayward side, about a block inland from Tampa Bay, with great water views from many of the rooms. Tucked in a courtyard is a heated outdoor pool shaded by palm trees.
A 10-minute walk down the road ends at the DalíMuseum, an angular concrete structure wrapped in a sinuous glass atrium. It's a fittingly off-kilter home for a collection of original paintings and other works from the surrealist master. A 10-minute walk in the other direction -- past a yacht basin bejeweled with luxe schooners -- ends at the Museum of Fine Arts, which displays classics like Matisse and more modern workers like Rauschenberg. Within a 10-block radius of the hotel are many restaurants and company headquarters, as well as the Florida Holocaust Museum.
