Hello, My husband got this hotel for us last year for our anniversary in July 2013 and I finally had a chance to review it. The pictures look great online and from looking at it looks clean in pictures but in reality upon entering the rooms It is horrible with wood flooring and blinds were old and dingy and some... More

Incredibly small room, smaller bathroom, odd shower, realllllly uncomfortable bed, world's slowest elevator and small lobby. Food smells from restaurant downstairs drifted all the way up to our 5th floor room, which was kinda ick unless we blasted the AC. Great location though, and for a busy busy Triathlon weekend, great price. I liked the hardwood floors, and the place... More

Prime location for a third of the price of other chain hotels. A bit old but carefully updated with funky decor. Not much stuff in the room (no fridge!!) but the staff is very nice. No breakfast facility but there is a awesome Italian bakery around the corner. We came for a triathlon race. We will be back next year.... More

We thought this was a great room and perfect for what we needed. We also liked that the shower was the size of a regular shower with a tuba, but the tub was removed. The only real downfall, no continental breakfast! You do have to find and pay for your own parking though; so plan accordingly.

The reviews are so varied. It’s kind of exciting, waiting to see what you are going to get. We stayed for a local race and this hotel was the perfect location and an excellent value. The hotel was nice. The updates were well done. I don’t recall ever staying in a room with hard wood floors, but I kind of... More

We booked through here for our wedding that happened in April. We reserved 10 rooms in February for the week of the wedding in April so our friends and family could stay with us. We also reserved our room to be a regular room for the first 3 days and a suite on the last day for our wedding night.... More

It is interesting to see such varied reviews of this hotel. But I can sort of see why. I will be objective and hopefully helpful. I will finish with the parking debate at the end. Location is always going to be dependent upon what you are looking for. If you want to visit Downtown St Pete and be near more... More

My husband and I stayed at Ponce De Leon for two nights while we were attending a wedding. The hotel had a dirty odor to it. The sheets did not fit the bed. I kept getting up in the night to pull the sheet back over the bed so I wasn't sleeping on the matress. And no one came to... More

We have been to St Petersburg many times, but had never stayed the night there until the past weekend. The Ponce De Leon Hotel was a great pick for our stay. Beautiful Historic Hotel, Perfect location on Central Ave. Within walking distance to Tropicana Field and all the Bars and Restaurants along Central. We will be planning another stay soon.
