Since we were there for the fun of downtown and the game, the hotel offered what we were looking for and expected. The hotel is a little older but it is updated as well as it can be.... More

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

Seldom do we return to stay at any one location, except for the Ponce de Leon. We love it, and all the friendly people who welcome us back each time! Located in the heart of downtown St. Petersburg, the Ponce is in the best area nearest to the Yacht Club, and water front. At the end of Central Ave, there... More

I booked a suite through Booking.com that was supposed to have 2 queen beds and a sleeper sofa. There was no sleeper sofa when we arrived. The lady at the front desk said that Booking.com had the description of their other queen suite, but that it was already occupied. She indicated they had to honor what the website described to...

She then proceeded to have a conversation w someone on the hallway until sunrise. We called the front desk and they did nothing to relieve the situation. If... More
