We stayed here for one night and had booked through booking.com. Unfortunately it was late and to get to this location it is not the easiest as there are no signs. We originally had booked what we thought was the Ramada however when we got there realized it had changed name and no one ever contacted us to notify us of it. The room we got was in the building directly across from the parking garage which rooms are nothing like you see on their website. The decor between the old building and the newer building is drastically different. We booked this hotel hoping to get the old time feel, the French Colonial we learned afterwards, is a special request you need to make. The room we got was nothing like the pictures we see and it was completely disappointing. The walls are in need of paint and the AC in the room is not managed by you and runs on a low temperature all night, it was horribly freezing! The bathroom was dirty we took showers with flip flops and squatted to use the toilet, it was just not trustworthy. I would not stay here again unless I stay in a French Colonial room. No wifi unless you're in the common areas, it took the front desk a while to figure out the wifi password, pretty disappointing. Breakfast was included but nothing over the top, by any means.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ponce Plaza Hotel & Casino is located at the corner of Reina and Union Street, in downtown Ponce. The hotel has a unique concept that intertwines modern style and historical architecture. The historic facade dating from 1882 is regulated by the Puerto Rico Institute of Culture. It was built by the owner at the time, Mr. Francisco Roubert, who along with former ex-slaves conducted this valuable architectural gem and lived for many years with his family. In 1912, it becomes the Liceo Ponceno School, the first all-girl school. After many years as a commercial property, it was purchased by the Munoz family and restored to what today is known as the Ponce Plaza Hotel & Casino. The hotel amenities are, the Casino de la Plaza, Lola Eclectic Cuisine Restaurant, Melao Coffee Shop, Viva Bar and a swimming pool.
