My husband and I loved staying here. The room was small but in a charming way, it's an old building. It is in perfect walking distance to all of the restaurants, shops , museums and pier, and is connected to a wonderful restaurant! Cute updates to a historical building. The price was great! I would stay here again in a... More

My wife and I stayed here because it is across the street from the St. Pete Yacht Club. But so is the Hampton Inn & Suites (I didn't know that). I've stayed at "boutique" hotels, and many are quite charming. Not quite so here. A little charming, but not quite there yet. First interesting thing is that on 6th floor... More

I'll keep it simple. I have stayed here three times in the last 120 days. I will only stay at the Ponce De Leon when I visit the St. Pete, FL area. That's how much I love this place. First, the service starts with the Manager Michael who has assembled a great team and who himself is most personable. The... More

My wife and I recently stayed here. Before making reservations I read the reviews here and was amazed how reviewers went between loving it and hating it. So, I decided to see for myself. We stayed for two nights. The location is perfect if you want to be downtown and near shopping, eating and entertainment. We stayed our first night... More

I was looking for a place close enough to walk most places & this place filled the bill. I was within walking distance of Beach Dr. where there were numerous great restaurants, shopping, & museums. The hotel has a wonderful Tapas restaurant & bar attached. The staff was friendly & helpful.Each room has its own distinct character. The room was... More

The super location, the delicious and ambient restaurant and the fairly low price are the 3 best reasons to stay at this hotel. The staff at the front desk are very helpful and friendly, too! But if you're looking for luxury and a roomful of amenities, you may want to expand your search or book early somewhere else. You can... More

Terrible service, the ladies at the front desk took it so personal after explaining a problem. They kept saying it's not MY fault, and that's true but your at the front desk and your representing this hotel. The problem was check in was at 3pm which is already pretty late however after arriving back at the hotel at 5:30PM, the... More

An older hotel, remodeled some years ago in an attempt to convert it to a boutique hotel (i.e., funky, but cute). Lots of tourists, especially foreign. No room service. No parking. Price isn't bad for downtown St. Pete. Front desk staff pleasant, Would probably stay there again.

Room size good, but not decorated. No place to put luggage. No pictures on wall, No rug on floor. Tiny TV. No curtains. Bathroom - no place to put toiletries. No pool. No patios to sit on. Very few amenities. Parking is ridiculous. You are on your own.

hey say location is everything....but it's not. Granted, walking around the harbor and the shops on Beach Blvd was nice. But the hotel room was poorly outfitted: no alarm clock, night stand on only one side of the bed, reading lamp on only one side, no comfortable lounge chair, very small TV that did not even carry ESPN. There's no... More
