This small historic hotel is right downtown across from the yacht club and next to Ceviche restaurant. The rooms are small but clean. Our corner room had a shower but no tub, and the tv didn't work. There are lots of good restaurants and bars within walking distance, and I recommend the food at Ceviche next door. There is only...

We stayed in a corner room with a view of the downtown. Location is close to downtown and close to the beach. The night club in the basement is great, the food is good and the music and dancing is great.

We enjoyed our stay and would stay again. The hotel has a rich history but is reasonably updated and located in the middle of a very interesting area of St Pete. While the parking is a bit problematic, there is a parking a short walking distance away.

This our first choice whenever staying in St. Petersburg. We "found" this little boutique hotel about ten years ago and stay there at least once a year. Beautifully remodeled and reminds me a 1940s hotel. Great, helpful staff.

I always stay at the Ponce (if it isn't sold out!) whenever I visit St. Pete. It's location cannot be beat. You can park your car and never get in it again til you're heading home. Farmer's market, museums, shopping and my favorite concerts at Jannus are just a few of the adventures within walking distance. Do yourself favor and...

Great little boutique type hotel in a great location downtown. Staff is extremely nice and helpful. Rooms were clean and nicely appointed. Kind of a chic vibe all-around. We went with another couple and shared a room - highly recommend!

Friendly staff, clean and could not be in a better location...in the heart of the action in downtown St. Petersburg. Museums, restaurants, music, and theater (professional & movie) within easy walking distance.

Our room was fabulous, and the location was perfect to enjoy St. Pete on foot! We never used our car the whole long weekend! Can't wait to go back. The only drawback was the lack of a pool. However, there is a local pool available, plus the beaches close by.

Really nice place, great restaurants within easy walking distance. We hold our partner meetings here, and it works very well. The staff accommodated our need for a location for informal discussions on the 1st floor. All in all, a pleasant experience.

This is our choice hotel for our visits to St Pete which are always designed to take in at least one Rays game. The stop for a complimentary shuttle to the Trop is within 3 blocks of the hotel. Shopping and excellent dining are very closeby as is waterfront. We love our outings here. The hotel staff is always pleasant...
