The Mari Jean Hotel is an upscale, adults-only, gay boutique hotel catering to the gay community of any gender and/or identity. While the hotel’s theming and décor pay homage to the male physique, Guests do not have to be gay or even male to stay at the hotel. All are welcome provided the primary Guest on the reservation is at least age 25 and secondary Guests on the reservation are at least age 21.
Check-in is at 3:00 PM and checkout is at 11:00 AM. Please let us know what time you expect to get here so we can prepare for your arrival. Simply email your confirmation number and ETA to email@example.com.
Located on the ground floor, Matteo’s offers house-made pasta dishes and a breadth of Italian options including individual pizzas cooked in a wood-fired pizza oven. Open most days beginning at 5:00 PM, check first before going by calling (727) 851-9114. For a look at their menu and to order ahead online, visit: https://matteotrattoria.com/. Other nearby options can be found on our website: CLICK HERE and scroll down to ‘Restaurants We Love’. Door Dash, Uber Eats, and other similar food delivery services may also be options to consider. Just be sure to meet the courier at the hotel’s front doors since access is restricted to only hotel Guests with room keys.
The hotel parking lot offers limited spaces for our hotel Guests who plan ahead. A valid Mari Jean Hotel Parking Permit is required and must be displayed in your vehicle’s driver’s side windshield to prevent your vehicle from being towed. A nightly permit fee of $25+ tax ($26.75) is applied to your room account. No-cost streetside parking is available on community streets near the hotel wherever the City of St Petersburg has not posted signs limiting or prohibiting parking. Which you choose is your decision but please know parking can be challenging to find from time to time, especially during weekends, holidays, and special events.
While our Staff members love pets, the Mari Jean Hotel does not permit pets. For information about service dogs, please call us directly at 727-289-1298 anytime between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM Eastern Time
The option to choose which clothes you wear will always be yours to make. However, you must wear something unless you’re in your room where you can be as naked as the day you were born! Just remember, the windows in your room are made of glass and not tinted.
While our rooms do not have refrigerators or microwaves, ice is plentiful from any of our Bartenders at our clubs to keep your beverages cold. Similarly, hot water is available for anything you need to warm up that can be warmed in a hot-water bath. Wattage requirements for these appliances are greater than the hotel’s electrical system can safely handle within the limitations of its 1926 construction modernized over the past century. Please plan accordingly if you travel with medication that requires refrigeration by bringing a cooler and/or dry ice to safely store your medication.
The Mari Jean Hotel benefits from being poolside at The Wet Spot Pool Bar & Day Club, open daily to hotel Guests for swimming between 8:00 AM and 9:00 PM. Pool towels are available at the pool with your photo ID and room key beginning at 11:00 AM. For towels earlier in the morning, please visit the hotel’s front desk.
Most definitely! Reservation requests are accepted in advance of your stay. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your confirmation number, date, and time you’d like to request a reservation. One of our Staff members will follow up with you on availability, cost, and other details to confirm your cabana reservation. For details about our cabanas, CLICK HERE and scroll down to the Cabana Hammock section of the page.
Not only is the Mari Jean Hotel an ideal location to host Guests attending a local wedding, anniversary celebration or vow renewal, our pool deck offers an amazing backdrop for a ceremony and our speakeasy on the bottom floor of the hotel can host the reception for Guest lists of about 50! For more information, email email@example.com with details of the experience you’re interested in creating and know your Guests will take home memories that will last a lifetime!
Currently, while this is not possible, please be sure to carry valid, government-issued photo ID and your preferred method of payment with you when visiting our clubs and merchandise shop, The Back Room by ZaZoo’d.
The primary difference is the location of the room. Aside from the beds (e.g., King, Queen, or Full), most rooms are about 150 square feet in size not including the bathroom, closet, or entryway, and are decorated with the same tantalizing themes and décor for which we are known. Rooms with Full-size beds are slightly smaller, do not have a separate closet or a ceiling fan, but are well-suited for single travelers or a couple who loves to take turns being the big spoon and the little spoon!
Whether for work or pleasure, yes, the Mari Jean Hotel offers Guests complimentary WiFi in your room and throughout public spaces including the pool and clubs. Ask the front desk for details.
Yes; you may have Guests in your room provided you greet your Guests downstairs on the bottom floor and accompany them to your room and back downstairs after they visit. Unescorted, unregistered Guests are not permitted to enter the hotel for your security and privacy. If you have a Guest who happens to need a place to sleep and you’ve been kind enough to offer the other side(s) of your bed, please be sure to register your Guest with the front desk. A valid, government-issued photo ID is required. When three Guests are staying in one room with a King bed, a $25 +tax per night charge will be applied to your room account. Rooms with a Queen bed or a Full bed are limited to no more than two Guests. Fire safety codes prohibit use of roll-aways or cots in any of our rooms.
We are as excited as you are that you want to wear a COCKtail T-shirt to show off your pride and maybe inspire envy among your friends and coworkers. Although online ordering is not available, please call the hotel’s front desk between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM Eastern Time at (727) 289-1298 to see what options may be possible through the assistance of one of our Staff members.
Our goal is to make availability open to book for the next six rolling months from the current date. Although details for holidays and special events may not be available when booking, as soon as they are, our future Guests will be among the first to learn about them. Rooms booked for dates more than six months from the current date will hold the room for you with your deposit, but rates are not guaranteed at the time of booking. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and share the dates of your anticipated visit.
Personal effects found in the hotel are turned in to the front desk and catalogued in our lost & found and on the reservation for the room where they were found or in our internal logs for those found in our hallways or the lobby. Please inquire with the front desk at (727) 289-1289 or by email at email@example.com.
Check-in is at 3:00 PM. If you arrive earlier, please check with our front desk to see if your room may be read earlier than 3:00 PM. We don’t want you to have to wait longer than is necessary for us to prepare your room for your arrival. Checkout time is at 11:00 AM. Even though you will be leaving your room, you are welcome to enjoy our property’s amenities including the pool throughout your last day with us.
When you stay at the Mari Jean Hotel, enjoy peace of mind knowing that your room will be thoroughly cleaned prior to your arrival and throughout your visit. During your stay, you can expect housekeeping services throughout your stay. Here is the schedule:
When staying 1 or 2 nights, your bed will be made, your trashcan will be emptied, and your room’s carpet will be vacuumed.
When staying 3 nights or more, every 4th day your linen and towels will be changed.
If you wish to decline housekeeping service at any time during your stay, you can opt out during the online check-in process by speaking with a member of our team in person or by placing the “STAY IN” sign on your door.
If you require additional housekeeping amenities or have specific housekeeping requests, please visit the Front Desk or contact Housekeeping via your in-room phone.
