Fodor's Expert Review Ponce Plaza Hotel & Casino
Calles Reina and Calle Unión, Ponce, n/a Puerto Rico, 00731, Puerto Rico
In a stunningly restored building that dates back to 1882, Ponce Plaza Hotel & Casino sits right on the main square. Six of its rooms preserve 19th-century architecture; they're dazzling, and by far the most atmospheric in Ponce. Black-and-white tiles, hand-carved furniture, and wooden balconies are among many stylish amenities. The other rooms in the more modern wing are a bit bland by comparison. Lola, serving Latin fusion cuisine and cocktails, is connected via the small pool area. Melao Café is a great place to start your day. On weekends there's live music on the patio.
- excellent location
- lively bar and restaurant
- regular rooms lack charm
- small pool gets foot traffic from attached restaurant
