Oh, and we never mentioned anything about all of us being there "together".....but trust me, management knew because we were given the bill under the door while we were all being somewhat....."noisy". LOL The next morning, the manager asked the four of us if we enjoyed our stay. We looked around and said "Yep....It was perfect". He winked and said "Great. If you ever need a room in the area again, let us know." So......yeah.
I love hearing good things about my local places. There are a lot of good rates in Pinellas County (St. Petersburg, Largo, Tarpon Springs, Pinellas Park, Palm Harbor, Clearwater, etc.) Many tourists have been scared off by the oil spill. BTW, it has not landed on our beautiful beaches... yet.

I know. No oil on our beaches! We live in Tampa.

"Oh, could we have 27 keys for that single?"

My experiences have been similar; barring really outrageous/ludicrous room packing, as long as you don't steal the towels and furniture, are reasonably discreet and don't disturb the other guests (too much), the hotels really don't care.

A little update: We've made a reservation at Sybaris, which is a chain of pool suite hotels in the Chicagoland area. Their website says couples only, but I wrote to them about it, and they were great about it, and gave me a special manager to call for a reservation for three. She was SUPER nice, and even apologized for only being able to take down birthday info for two people. She also went so far as to say that if we didn't all want to come into the office to sign the liability wavers that one of us could bring them back to the car for the others, and that the staff would be notified ahead of time. Very discreet and understanding.
I will let you know how we like our stay.

Wow, those aren't even that expensive for what you get. I wish we had them in New England.

Those aren't expensive!
I checked out the website and sent for a brochure!

Please do come back and give us an update on how it goes!

I'd love to go there with Maca or GG. I'd LOVE to go there with Maca and E too.
Looks beautiful!

So, are you and GG back "together" again? I must have missed something.

We’re back! Sybaris was mostly great. The staff was totally professional and courteous to us, and when we reached our suite, we found they had sprinkled the bed with rose petals. This is generally an extra charge, so it was a really nice gesture that made us feel welcome. They ended up being a fun plaything, as well.
We were in a “Majestic Pool Suite.” The pool was nice, and featured color-changing lights which we thought would be cheesy but actually really enjoyed. The “waterfall” was a bit silly and also a bit cold. It reminded us of those funny oil lamp cage things with the oil that runs down fishing line to look like rain. The hot tub in this room is 5x7: it was big enough for three and comfy, but probably wouldn’t fit four very comfortably. The hot tubs in some other rooms are 4X6 and different shapes, so consider what you need on that score. The best part was the steam room. Our friend produced an oil-salt-sugar scrub, which led to the most brain-meltingly smokin’ hot make-out I have ever had the pleasure of participating in. Holy cow. I highly recommend this activity.
The rooms are all separate little cabins, so they are totally private. Our room was also mirrored on three sides, and above the bed, which made it feel a lot bigger. There’s a sex swing/sling in the closet that hooks up above the bed. It was one of the most unattractive, hilarious things I’ve ever seen, but if my husband and I had been there alone we would have tried it anyway. We’ve been married long enough to accept hilarity as part of sex.
The room was a little dated feeling, with oak trim on everything and cheesy palm tree wallpaper around the pool, but we mostly had the lights dim and weren’t looking at the décor much. It did not feel “old.” Everything was clean and functional, and the linens and carpets and things seemed new.
The biggest misstep was the bed. It was lumpy and uncomfortable, the pillows were only available in the huge, puffy, firm variety, and the sheets were some scratchy synthetic blend. We didn’t sleep well. If we go back (which we are totally game for, but we are moving across the country shortly), we would bring our own sheets and pillows, as hilarious as that seems, just to be more comfy. They really should improve this aspect of the hotel, as it really detracts from the luxurious feeling.
We found a coupon online for $75 off our stay. They did not charge us extra for a third. Apparently they send out discounts by email and on your birthday, etc, so sign up online ahead of time to score a discount if you are thinking of going.
Overall, definitely recommended.

Wow thanks for the review. As a part time traveller for work and a hospitality guy I love seeing reviews

Bummer about the beds. One of the most expensive items to buy in a room and not replaced very often. Always sucks when they suck but I know why hotels do it.
