Positive Reviews

Full of character.

Ponce de Leon St. Petersburg is a quaint boutique hotel that is full of character. The hotel has maintained its original character despite having undergone some major upgrades. The rooms are small but tastefully furnished and decorated with a modern décor. Guests love the generous size of the closets as well as the fridges and microwaves which the hotel provides upon request.

Great location.

The hotel is located within walking distance of many fine restaurants, a marina bay, shopping centers, and other top tourist attractions including Salvador Dali Museum (1.5 km), Tropicana Field (1.7 km), Sunken Gardens (2.5 km), among other attractions.

Warm staff.

The hotel's staff is very warm and friendly with guests which feeds into the hotel's unique charm.

Negative Reviews

Botched reservations.

Several guests have reported that the hotel frequently fails to honor late reservations especially when during high season when rooms are nearly sold out. Guests who book several months or weeks in advance have also complained of the same thing.

Drunk guests.

Guests love to visit Ponce de Leon St. Petersburg to have a merry time which frequently involves drinking the night away. A few guests have reported enduring sleepless nights due to rowdy and drunk guests in the hallways, something the hotel's management failed to do anything about.

Messy parking.

The hotel lacks on-site parking and guests have to park their vehicles across the street which is not only inconvenient but quite messy too.
