This is a quaint hotel located in downtown St. Petersburg. If you are looking for a cookie cutter chain hotel the Hampton is next door. We enjoy the ambiance this hotel offers. This is not a resort but if you are looking for a clean room in a great location you will like it. Downtown St. Petersburg is a great... More

This is a little boutique hotel in the heart of Downtown St. Pete. It's an old hotel but has a lot of modern charm. Convenient to all that downtown has to offer and close to the water front. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms and tv's are tiny. All in all you can't go wrong for the money.

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

We love staying at the Ponce de Leon, it is absolutely charming, the location is perfect with it being right across the street to Saint Petersburg Marina and lots of great shops and restaurants. We come every month to work on our boat and stay at the Ponce every time. Penny Nichols
