This small hotel is in the heart of St Pete. This is the second time I have stayed here and had good experiences both times. The rooms are a little smaller than other hotels as well as the bathroom and tv's. The Ponce is an older building but has been renovated. Walking distance to the water as well as multiple... More

This is a little boutique hotel in the heart of Downtown St. Pete. It's an old hotel but has a lot of modern charm. Convenient to all that downtown has to offer and close to the water front. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms and tv's are tiny. All in all you can't go wrong for the money.

My husband and myself stayed there, we have a few comments on our stay there: 1. At C/I there were two ladies at the Front desk and I guess the owner and they were more eager for the Owner to be proud of them than of the service they were giving to us. One of the ladies addressed us as... More
