Friendly, helpful staff. Charming room (we loved the wood floors - no icky carpet), well maintained and comfortable. Location was perfect for visiting museums, restaurants, shops, without getting in the car. And the beautiful bayfront parks right across the street. What could be better?

Everything about our experience at this hotel was great. The staff were friendly and the location was convenient for walking to many St. Pete attraction including the downtown restaurants and shops. The hotel had a lot of character and I really liked that each room was modern and unique.

I spent a week at the Ponce de Leon in St. Petersburg and was very impressed with the service. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are modern and spacious. The location couldn't be better if you are interested in downtown St. Petes. Cerviche, the attached restaurant, is fantastic! Great room, great food, great service. At happy hour you can... More

Nothing special except the tapas restaurant was excellent and it is in a good location for downtown activities. Parking is at a ramp nearby so add another $12 per day for it. Staff seemed in their own world to nonexistent.

We ended up not going (due to weather we cancelled the trip) but the wanted to charge me the full night's... More

Charming older hotel in the heart of what's happening in St. Petersburg. Easy walking access to museums, restaurants(including attached "Ceviche Tapas") and events near waterfront. Room was small but adequate - bathroom was a bit of a joke - really teeny. Very pleasant, friendly,and helpful staff. Parking available weekdays on lot across the street for $4.00 per day; free after... More

Stayed here one night for the location as we had some festivities to attend downtown St. Pete. It was the cheapest hotel in the area and we were not looking for anything fancy. Took 30+ minutes to check in with only one other visitor ahead of us... The room was small and outdated with a tiny TV. Woke up several... More

I was impressed with my 2 night stay at this hotel last month. A very friendly staff is present to assist at any time. Rooms, though small, were very comfortable and uniquely furnished. Parking in public lot across street. Restaurant located in building was excellent and the downstairs lounge was comfortable and provided live entertainment. Would stay again on future... More

My husband and I had a wedding at the vinoy and decided to stay here instead because of the price difference and because we wanted to explore downtown st. Pete. However, we didn't get to sleep at all because the hotel is so noisy. You can hear everything going on all around you. I've stayed in boutique hotels before and... More

So I was supposed to have a studio but they gave it to someone else and didn't even have my reservation!! Was extremely unsatisfied with the 122$ price tag that came with a closet sized room. The only thing that saved it was the fact that it's so close to all the bars and restaurants in downtown St . Pete.... More
