Fenway Hotel in Dunedin, Florida is a classic US Gulf Coast hotel and embraces its music history past, reflected in their tagline of A Place Humming With Soul. The first radio station in Pinellas County broadcast from the third floor of the historic Fenway Hotel in 1925. A jazz singer performed in the lobby as we arrived and there is live music almost every night.
Fenway Hotel is a sister property to Epicurean Hotel in Tampa Florida, about 30 minutes away.

Fenway Hotel in Dunedin FL: Relaxed Luxury on the US Gulf Coast
Where is Fenway Hotel
The Fenway Hotel is located less than 25 miles from both Tampa and St. Pete/Clearwater airports. It is a short walk into lovely downtown Dunedin. Be sure to stop and admire the majestic oak trees (#USGulfOaks) in Edgewater Park on your route to Dunedin Coffee Company & Bakery for breakfast, Strachan’s for Tampa Bay’s best ice cream, or your stroll around downtown Dunedin.
Situated across the street from St. Michael’s Bay, Fenway guests can enjoy great sunsets by walking across the street or from the Hi-Fi Rooftop Bar (see below).
The Fenway Hotel website encourages guests to leave their cars at the hotel and catch the Clearwater Jolley Trolley—to Clearwater, Palm Harbor, and Tarpon Springs.

Fenway Hotel provides complimentary tea and coffee in the lobby. US Gulf Coast Travel Tip: I found it more convenient to grab a cup and head to the pool than making it in the room.
I loved that Fenway Hotel provides a cool music themed Amazon Echo device with instructions on ways to use it. Ask Alexa for directions or suggestions for meals, to play music, or to set an alarm.

HEW Parlor and Chophouse at Fenway Dunedin

In addition to their chops, cuts, and other amazing food items, HEW serves creative craft cocktails and local craft brews. I loved the Great Buzzbee cocktail.
