We came into town during the St. Pete Grand Prix, so we weren't thinking much for rooms would be available, especially something to accommodate 3 of us. The location of the Ponce De Leon made it our first choice. It is literally right in the center of everything & they have an great attached restaurant bar called Ceviche. Instead of... More

Very fair value. Perfect location. Modern room. Amazing water pressure in shower. Good bed. What more can you ask for. On a side note, parking can be stressful for some who are used to private lots. You have to either street park or in the public garage, but when I was there the public garage had plenty of empty spots... More

Checked in a little earlier than the normal time but rooms were ready. Unloading zone out front; paid parking is across the street in a public garage. Well withing walking distance to a variety of restaurants and shops. Museums nearby. Trolley stop very close. Excellent tapas restaurant right next door. Hotel is old so rooms are a little on the...

I stayed three nights recently at the Ponce De Leon. Overall, I was impressed. But as others have said, there is room for improvement. Good Points: 1. The location is awesome in downtown St. Petersburg. 2. The front staff were uniformly nice and helpful. 3. Parking, at $10/day, in a nearby lot was fine. 4. My room, on the fifth... More

Not too expensive and we had good sized clean rooms. The main attraction is it is very central for the town's restaurants and bars and one block from the very attractive harbour front. Staff were helpful & friendly, and parking is free outside after 6 and only a dollar or so an hour otherwise. Pleasant.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. I was in town in looking for an apartment so I didn't need anything fancy, a pool or rooftop lounge. This hotel was in the perfect locations, clean, friendly staff and priced perfectly.

We are locals and needed a place to stay while we had some work done on the house. We found this deal and booked, but were skeptical, because honestly the front looks a little questionable. We ended up with a HUGE room (looks like 2 rooms were combined, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 closets). Kitchen area. The hotel was very... More

We spent Valentine's Day at The Ponce de Leon Hotel and really liked it. The decor was cool and modern and very unique. We loved the location downtown since we were there to go to the Dalí Museum.Only downside is that our room was right on the street and it was somewhat noisy in the morning.

Beautiful old hotel with all its classic beauty. Fully renovated and modernized Clean, comfortable , cute and classy! We will definitely stay here again. The Tapas restaurant next door is amazing. The hotel has a bay view and is in the heart of the downtown arrears!

I booked this hotel mainly because of the location near downtown (Beach Ave- which has all the best restaurants and music). The price was right, appr. $122 with tax for a double size bed. The room is small but functional. The mattress was horrible to say the least. It felt like sleeping on a piece of plywood with old springs.... More
