I Visited This Facility

We really like The Princess Martha, especially the room that was available at that particular time. It's right on the pool level, but in the corner. Being a one-time elegant hotel, it looked very hotelish on the first floor, but once you go beyond there it's more homey. The staff who assisted me was very friendly and very accommodating. There are a lot of more activities like a fishing club and nightly poker. Of course, they have more flexibility than assisted living as far as the activities where the residents initiated some of those activities. We would have chosen this place as an ideal independent living community, but in reality, we are concerned about my dad's memory, so that's why we didn't consider them in the end.

I liked The Princess Martha a lot. That's #1 on my list. I liked the location since it's downtown, and you don't have to drive far to do something. The person who took me around was a very fine gentleman who answered my questions, showed me everything, and did a beautiful job. I thought everything was good there.

I Visited This Facility

I visited The Princess Martha. I thought it was decent, nice, and in the middle of Saint Petersburg. They were setting up where they were going to get parking, which would have been helpful. They didn't have parking at that time. They were going to get indoor parking. The older building was close to 100 years old.

I Am/Was A Resident Of This Facility

I lived at The Princess Martha for about a year and a half. I needed more care and theirs was quite expensive. The facility itself is antique grandeur. It's old and styled in the '30s type of design inside with tall ceilings made of wood, and it's very high class. You get that impression from the moment you walk in. They offer amenities and activities and have a pool on the second floor. The building itself is so old that everything needs to be repaired on a regular basis, so they had a myriad of issues. You're paying a lot of money for a very old building.

I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

My brother feels very comfortable at The Princess Martha, and he feels like he's in his own backyard. Transportation's good, and it's a good place for him. The staff was wonderful and very kind. One particularly great person is Alan Martinez who did a really fine job of making us feel comfortable. The rooms had some problems with plumbing, but they came and fixed those things immediately and have been very responsive. They have a great pool, and they're starting to construct a parking garage. It's very friendly and people work very hard to keep you happy. The place is clean, and the food is good. The staff is good, knowledgeable, helpful, stay on top of everything, and seem to work well with each other. The only real complaint I have about it is the stairways. I want to offer to help paint the stairways. They need to be upgraded because they're pretty grungy.

Facilities and location were excellent. Staff was extremely helpful and supportive. Personally did not require healthcare assistance, but did observe caring and reactive staff.
