We stayed for 4 days and really enjoyed it. The hotel is just under new management, no longer under Loews, we hope they keep up the level of service. The miles' long white sand beach is right in front of the hotel with direct access from the hotel pool. Dolphins can be spotted daily while enjoying a walk along the...

A few friends and I stayed at the Don Cesar during the week and had an amazing stay. Such a beautiful hotel with a great view overlooking the gulf. We received exceptional service from Brian and his crew that made sure we were taken care of in a timely manner at our chairs/Cabana. They even pointed us in the direction...

We've just arrived, but so far so bad. TV doesn't work again ("no signal") after a visit from maintenance staff. Can't complain this time because hotel's phone system is down, too. In fact, no one answers when I call main number on my cell. We're told hotel is under new management. All we want is our money back...

My experience at the Don was great. The beach and hotel were very nice and the service was fantastic. Michael on the beach was a great help on my stay. He not only helped us with our setup on the beach every day but he also had great suggestions for tourist attractions and activities during our stay. Just one example...

My wife and I had a great stay over the Valentine Day week. Beautiful room, polite and helpful staff. Couldn't have been nicer. Elevators were out but the hotel responded by putting treats and coffee in the lobby. Big shoutout to Charles at the main desk and to Ernie and Fahron poolside.

I'm a fan of grand historic hotels that have been lovingly restored and renewed-- the Hotel Del Coronado, the Four Seasons Olympic in Seattle, Chateau Frontenac in Quebec-- and the Don Cesar is in that league. It's a landmark, its pink Belgian concrete facade visible above the horizon as you drive south to St Pete beach. Inside, the main lobby...

Beach is great. Soft white sand. Historic hotel. Tyler and Cam did a great job with the water sport rentals. Lunch at the pool was excellent and overlooked the gulf. Jazz band on Saturday night was very good. Nice lobby.

Was there for a few nights in February. It was nice but not great - the place is older and the room was small. Probably the best place in St Pete Beach though. Breakfast was good and service was good too. It was too cold so I didnt use pool or go to beach.

Stayed for a long weekend. Close to airport made this attractive to us. Hotel is classic Florida. Rooms are a little dated, but clean. Main bar is very small, but their is plenty of seating. Main dining room is big and modern.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)

Born in the Great Gatsby era as a playground for the rich and famous, the iconic "Pink Palace" has been revitalized and refreshed within, ensuring a future as rich and storied as its history. Enjoy newly redesigned 277 luxurious rooms including 36 suites, many with spectacular views of the pristine Gulf beaches or Boca Ciega Bay. Relax and indulge at Spa Oceana, featuring over 11,000 square feet of spa facilities, luxurious spa treatments, full service salon, and a stunning rooftop garden overlooking the azure waters of the Gulf of Mexico. ... more   less
