As so many other reviewers had mentioned, Tatiana at reception was lovely...helpful, polite and dedicated to making sure that we had a good stay. She made last minute guided tour reservations for us so that we could see the Uffizi comfortably and gave us several ideas for nice walks nearby.
Elena, Tatiana's counterpart, gave us a fantastic recommendation for dinner one night (Osteria del Cinghiale Bianco...make reservations and don't miss this place!). Thanks to Tatiana's suggestion, we had lunch at the central market (San Lorenzo Mercato Centrale) and had a fantastic time ordering regional specialties from the different vendors on the second floor...highly recommended.
The hotel is close to everything of note...shopping, galleries, museums and restaurants. We walked everywhere.
Our room was 105, which had a bedroom with separate living room...the kids (ages 14 and 10 years) shared a surprisingly comfortable sofa sleeper. We had an in-room Nespresso coffee maker and small kitchen area (we only used the fridge for stashing water bottles). The decor was nice, bathroom updated, had dual zone air conditioning and was very, very clean and quiet.
Although the hotel doesn't have a restaurant, we had a lovely, hearty breakfast each morning (delivered to our room by Tatiana).
If ever lucky enough to return to Florence, we will stay at Ponte Vecchio Suites and Spa again (we were too busy to check out the spa, which is an awesome problem, right?).
