We stayed at the Ponce De Leon for 5 nights a week ago and had a positive experience (despite some of the reviews here, phew). 4th floor corner room facing Tampa Bay, lot's of light, plenty of room for 2, ok decor, the bed was comfortable and clean and the place had some charm, the fir(?) hardwood floors were a bonus. A really nice stay honestly, we would stay there again.. great shower/water pressure, had a fridge (a bit noisy)... only complaints, the drapes/blinds were a pain to operate, no fan in the bathroom (but a window) and they never emptied the garbage in our room, pretty minor; oh, and the (free) wireless was having intermittent issues towards the end of our stay... and yes, the free overnight parking they offer (you have to ask) is a long 3-blocks away, but who cares.. it was 75 degrees without a clowd in the sky!
I should mention the price was great (one night free on our stay). but the location was truly fantastic. and don't forget the tapas downstairs.. and their live music, top notch!
