On the final stop of our girl’s getaway trip to Florida we headed to St. Augustine. None of the four of us had ever set foot in St. Augustine so we were excited to see the city. We were also tired. There was a lot of driving involved in visiting three cities in six days and we were crossing our fingers that St. Augustine would be comfortable and accommodations would be quiet, restful and clean.
The St Augustine Tryp Hotel didn’t disappoint. It was a lovely, clean, newer space. Tryp is a brand owned by Wyndham and it is affordable and family friendly. There are numerous locations of Tryp by Wyndham around the world in many popular tourist destinations. A new one is currently being built in Fort Lauderdale too. In the St Augustine Tryp Hotel the rooms are extremely spacious. Lobby is clean and decorated with modern colours and styles.
It was located on Ponce DeLeon Boulevard Sebastian St Augustine. Looking out onto a marina, the Tryp Hotel St. Augustine has a nice view out back and ample parking as well. Rooms facing out front lack a view of anything exciting other than the roadway, but if you can overlook that then it’s not that big an issue. Although we faced the road I found it quiet and was able to sleep well for the two nights we were there. Of course the fact that we raced from event to event and toured everything possible meant I was super exhausted at night.
For me, St Augustine Tryp hit all the right notes. It was my kind of space, clean, comfortable, affordable and family friendly too. Amenities are what you would expect in a mid level affordable chain – fitness room, pool, hot tub, outdoor patio, restaurant with breakfast (extra) and also a small business centre. Free wifi of course and also bottled water in the rooms.
Outdoors, the pool was lovely and a decent size to play in or do some laps. Warning – it was chilly in October actually. Hot tub is clean and on deck near the pool. Ample seating on the patio. Nice view and good location for the pool.
Everything here at St Augustine Tryp Hotel is new and clean. That makes me happy. Cleanliness should be the standard for all accommodations in every city in Florida. And while many are, we recently had one negative experience that made us a bit apprehensive. However everything in St. Augustine was exceptional and enjoyable.
St Augustine is quite drivable and also easy to get around in. The location is about 10 minutes from downtown by shuttle or driving on your own. There’s a ton of activity and so much to see. Many inexpensive shuttles operate in St. Augustine. Ask the desk how long you need to plan for if you have reservations and then ask them to call the shuttle to get you there. Highly recommend a visit.

The Tryp Hotel St. Augustine is one hotel I wouldn’t hesitate to return to and stay at again. Great for families or girl’s getaways too. It would even suit multi-generational travel.
We were guests of Visit Florida and St Augustine Ponte Verda in Florida’s Historic Coast when we visited the area this past month. All travel costs were paid for and accommodations and meals covered as well. My opinion is all my own and it is also truthful.
