Lodging and Transportation

Lodging - Suggested

The room block for our wedding is being held at the Tradewinds Resort in St. Petersburg Beach, FL. The rates are $189/night for a standard room (sleeps 4) and $254/night for a suite (sleeps 6). Rooms with a view are also available for a slightly higher price.

5500 Gulf Boulevard West
St. Pete Beach, FL 33706
Mention the Gelormine/Romanski Wedding

Included is access to all of their pools & facilities, plus the facilities at their beach (giant slide, cabanas, etc). Additionally, you will be staying literally on top of the locations for drinks Friday night and transportation on Saturday! Please note that check-in is at 4pm and that the Tradewinds does charge $15/person after the initial 2 people per room. Additionally, rooms must be booked by October 1st.

Lodging - Back-up

The back-up hotel for our wedding is the Howard Johnson in St. Petersburg Beach, FL. The rate is $102 - $119 per night for a standard room (sleeps 4). The hotel is located two blocks from the Tradewinds Resort.

6100 Gulf Boulevard
St. Pete Beach, FL 33706

The Howard Johnson does have a pool, but you will not be given access to any of the amenities at the Tradewinds Resort. Since Howard Johnson is not in our official room block, we ask that everyone please consider staying at the Tradewinds before you book here. Also, the provided transportation for our reception will not be stopping at the Howard Johnson, so you will need to walk/ride to the Tradewinds to pick up the shuttle. Please note that check-in, like the Tradewinds, is also at 4pm.


If you are flying in we suggest you land at the Tampa Airport(TPA). The Tradewinds Resort in St. Pete Beach is a 30 minute drive from the airport. The three best options for transportation are:

1) Shared Van Service: For $23 one-way you can take a shuttle from the airport to the Tradewinds Resort. Click on this link to make your reservation: Shared Van Service.

2) Taxi: A taxi from the airport to St. Pete Beach will run around $65 one-way. Instead, we suggest you use the following link to book a car service, which is $60: Car Service.

3) Rental Car: You can rent a decent car from the Tampa Airport for as low as $30/day. We suggest using's "Name Your Own Price" feature HERE.

Transportation will be provided to and from the Tradewinds Resort and Isla Del Sol for the wedding itself. The buses will be departing the Tradewinds from 3:00 - 3:30, and will return from Isla Del Sol shortly after the reception (around 9:30pm).
