"Sweet suite"
There were three of us. We really appreciated the two room suite. Small but great for one night and more cost-effective than two separate rooms. Walking distance to Tropicana field with several cool bars on the way (and way back). We are going to make it an annual event when the Yankees are in town.

"Nice little place for a week me getaway"
All in all this is a nice, historic hotel in a great location in downtown St Pete. Rooms were quaint and kind of Art Deco/studio apartment feel. Only down side was the window blinds weren't very blocking of light so room was pretty bright day and night. Sounds travelled between rooms, but not unbearable. I would stay here again, and liked our room in general, but saw some other rooms with doors open and thought were a little nicer in terms of window dressings, etc, so would ask for a little better room next time.

"Pleasant time in St. Pete"
This was my second time at this hotel. The location is perfect: near shops, restaurants, three museums and the marina. Room was clean. Bed was comfortable. Staff was helpful. It's a boutique hotel in an old building, but has lots of charm. Breakfast at Ceviche on the first floor was delicious and relaxing.

A very nice boutique hotel, perfectly located next to all the sights. The staff was extra friendly, courteous, and helpful. The room smelled a little musty, but I expected that from and old building and that did not detract from the experience one bit. Some people feel parking is inconvenient, however, there is ample parking cadi-corner and across the street. Also - parking is free @ the meters over the weekend....and there are plenty of places to find free parking.

The hotel was so conveniently located for what we wanted. The free baseball shuttle and the bars and restaurants in the area. The hotel had cheap parking and provided great customer service. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would love to stay again.

"Disappointed"
We wouldn't stay there again. The room was super small and the television even smaller. There was no dresser or anywhere to put your clothes unless you hung them - hanging underwear is a little odd. Bed wasn't comfy and there was no art or decoration. The lobby was beautiful but that was misleading.

The ac in the hall was out, and the room didn't have a very powerful ac, took a long time for the room to cool. Also the placement of the coffee maker was weird. Had to move it in order for it to reach a plug in. Overall not horrible, good place to crash for quick sleep.

"Nice One Night Stay"
This was a brief overnight stay for my husband and I after taking our son to college. The location of the hotel is perfect, we could walk to all the great downtown spots and we could see the marina from our room. The bathroom is small and I really cannot comment on service as we did not ask for anything or need anything. It was kind of nice to receive a door key instead of a credit card key. I was concerned about the very firm mattress but it was the best night sleep my husband and I have had.

"I love this Hotel!"
This is the second time we stayed at the Ponce De Leon. We love that it is an older hotel that has been renovated yet keeping its charm.It is right in the middle of all the best downtown action. The staff is friendly, courteous and efficient... what more can you ask! The hotel restaurant is awesome! You have to try it for brunch, dinner and the downstairs night life... quite an experience. You will get a great downtown urban experience.

We loved the area. The room was small which we knew going in to the stay. It was REALLY small. The bathroom was the so small. There were no shelves. You had to leave soap on the shower floor which is odd. I found hair in the bathroom and bed which was not mine. The room was quiet. Reception was kind and helpful.

"Bait and Switch Hotel. Be careful!"
I booked this hotel twice now and both times they provided a different room than what was booked through hotels.com. The first time they were able to correct the error but this past weekend I show up, was given a different room, and because they were entirely booked, was forced to stay in the cheaper room FOR THE SAME PRICE AS THEIR SUITE/STUDIO.

Not a hotel for anyone on vacation. More for young people if they are they're for a party weekend looking for a cheap place to stay.. It has not been updated in a very long time and rooms and beds looked pretty bad. A/C was a wall unit not turned on when we looked in our room and that caused an odor in the room. Frankly, we did not stay in the hotel that night. Booked another room elsewhere.... Also there is no parking, you had to pay at a public garage down the block. Also in valet !

"Nice Room, But Not as Advertised."
The hotel was nice, however, the "2 Queen Bed Suite" is a bit of a misnomer. While there ARE 2 beds, one is a regular sized bed and one is a Murphy bed. Also, the shower and the toilet are in the same physical space, literally next to each other without any separation.

"Great Location but Lacking in Other Areas"
Hotel was conveniently located. The room was ok, but not the cleanest. The bathroom had mold and hair. The front desk staff continued a private conversation when I was passing through, some of which was NOT appropriate for little ears. The restaurant, Civieche, was wonderful and the only thing I would highly recommend.

"Spend your time elsewhere"
The room was adequate but something I might expect of a hostel, not a "boutique hotel" in downtown St. Petersburg. Although the staff was friendly, the building is in need of serious updates, especially something to cut the noise from the hallway. I could hear every single thing my neighbors were saying or doing. Also, when a hotel advertises a fold away bed, I do not expect the cheapest, most uncomfortable futon fold down. I would not stay here again.

"Disappointed!!"
This hotel needs a complete renovation. Very old furnishings. No luggage valet, No dresser draws. Rickety closet bathroom sink was in the sleeping area, the mattress and pillows were soft and terrible. Bathtub was clean, but drain was rusty. No amenities such as a clock, tissues, horrible lamp. Lighting was inefficient. I will say the staff was friendly and helpful but the only thing going for this hotel is their location. Close to everything and the Tapas restaurant attached to this hotel was fabulous!

"This place was a disappointment"
The hotel is very historic. The room I stayed in was very small with an A/C unit in the wall like an old motel. It was loud at times however kept the room cool. The bathroom was small but it did have a walk in shower that was comfortable to be in. There was a small TV in the room with many channels to watch. The comforter and pillow shams smelled like they needed to be washed. The maid went into our room as we were checking out and she didn't take the comforter or shams off of the bed. Only the sheets. I would have rather stayed at the Hampton Inn next door. I would not stay at this hotel again.

"Ok for this trip, but won't stay here again"
The boutique style of the hotel was nice and the location to all of the major nightlife in the St. Petersburg area was the best thing about our stay here. Unfortunately, there were a few hiccups. When we arrived and we're looking through the room's hotel services booklet, we read that there was breakfast provided. So, our first morning we went downstairs and asked where breakfast was served and the hotel staff said breakfast is not included in your stay. When I told her that their room services booklet says that it is included, she said that is old and they forgot to remove it. Additionally, I initially booked the room on my credit card. However, when we arrived at the hotel I asked to change the card on file to a debit card, which they did. Upon our departure, I asked the hotel staff to double check that the card they were going to run the transaction on was in fact my debit card and not my credit card. They confirmed the debit card information. However, the hotel made the transaction for our stay on my credit card, and not the debit card that I requested them to use. We enjoyed our stay well enough, thanks to the ease of location, but will not be staying here again.

"Smelly and dirty but great location"
The hotel itself is in a perfect location, in the heart of everything. BUT!!! The second you step in the elevator, IT hits you...the SMELL!! There is a horrible moldy, wet carpet smell that is in the elevator and the room. All our clothes smelled and it's so bad it is nauseating! The bathroom was dirty. The shower knobs, floor and walls were covered in some kind of mildewy slime. Had to shower with flip flops and even the shower head was covered in brown gunk! Really gross and makes you feel dirtier then before you took the shower. Very unfortunate because the lobby and room (though old looking) had charm and a cute style. The bed was another issue, was very uncomfortable and lumpy. The headboard and 2 pillows had different hairs and some old white crusty stains. Threw them on the floor and didn't use. The place would be great if they actually kept it clean. Didn't even mind the smallness of the room or bathroom. They just really need to clean and use air freshness (if they can't get rid of the smell). All floors are hardwood so the damp, moldy, wet dog/carpet smell in the room is unexplainable. Wanted a place in the heart of downtown to walk around and not drive, for this it's great. Oh and parking, well there is none. You pay to park either on the street and then have to move it in the morning or pay to park in a shared garage on the next block. Usually I don't write reviews but that smell and dirty bathroom, were just unforgivable.
