    Wonderful hotel and experience

    We loved the ambiance of this historic hotel. The staff are very accommodating and do pamper guests. . The vibe is upscale but Florida casual and family friendly. We had a great time lounging by pool and beach. This was a very relaxing stay in a beautiful hotel and setting.

    Most restaurants on site are expensive. Would have appreciated breakfast Included even if continental. Had to rent a refrigerator for room. Would think for price of rates would have included one outside of minibar.

    great location

    Food is just awful. The eggs Benedict were just horrible. The guacamole was not made inhouse and again was terrible. the chicken wings? Blech. The Nachos were something you would expect to get at a high school baseball game. Seriously, now you know why people flock to The Frog Pong for breakfast or dozens of other places to eat rather than the over priced dreck at The Don The resort is way overpriced for what you get. It has turned into a wedding factory with music blaring late into the night. Oh and parking... If you valet, you pay $25 per day. If you self park, they charge you $15 per day. Huh? Loews ran a tight ship there. Now, it has slid way down hill. One of my favorite things - In the gym, they had several magazines. The latest edition was a Men's Health from Jun 2015 - and the address on it was Pasadena Car Wash. Oh and the other three magazines? Two were Ski Magazine (from 2014) and one was called 32 Degrees also about skiing.... Not going back soon with so many better - and cheaper- options in the area.

    My stay, wedding guest

    Great staff- helpful, cheerful, funny, kind.

    way to soft beds and pillows- food prices are very high for what you pay for high priced room, and would have been nice receiving free coffee when ordering meals.

    I was local and my AC went out so I stayed at this hotel. Very nice and comfortable. A little expensive for a Tuesday!

    beach attendants very helpful and accommodating, especially Earnie

    Extra charges in the last few years such as parking and newspapers placed at doors in the morning.

    Great stay.

    Directly on a beautiful beach. Easy to find. Everything you need is in the resort.

About

Overview

The Don Cesar is a luxury hotel located on St. Pete Beach, Florida. This impressive venue has won a Reader’s Choice Award from Condé Nast Traveler. Built in 1928, this over century-old hotel has a glamorous history and has even hosted such famous names as Clarence Darrow, Lou Gehrig, and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Today, The Don CeSar is part of the National Registry of Historic Places. The Don Cesar has been nicknamed Pink Palace, as its building facade has a soft pink hue. It features 277 guest rooms, 36 of which are suites. Each one has a sea-theme to match the nearby beach. There are 17 room types to choose from, as well as queen and king suites. One of the most luxurious rooms is the Grand Gulf View King with Balcony. It has premium views of the Gulf of Mexico, a lovely balcony, a work desk, and a plush king-sized bed. The suites are great for larger parties or families sharing a vacation together. When staying at The Don Cesar, there are a variety of amenities to take advantage of. The heated pool and Jacuzzi are great for rest and relaxation, as is the beach that guests have direct access to. Those looking for activities to take part in can play ping-pong, shuffleboard, poolside games, and much more. Rentals of wave runners, banana boats, and paddle boards are also available. For drink and food, there are four eateries and two bars to enjoy. The Maritana Grille is an award-winning restaurant where a chef’s table and private dining room are available. Those looking for something casual should try the fare at Sea Porch Café. And for a tasty cocktail, there's a glamorous Lobby Bar and a fun beach bar called The Rowe Bar.
