Terrific accommodation

Centrally located. Walk to most points of interest in downtown St. Augustine. Clean and spacious. Pleasant staff well maintained property . Internet connection was a daily charge and there were no outlets near the desk which made it inconvenient to work.

Delightful

The Casa Monica is the epitome of staying at a Kessler property. Art and music abound. Rooms are clean and safe. The location cannot be beat; within walking distance of most everything. Room service was fresh, friendly, and efficient. Front desk staff were helpful and welcoming every moment. Even the fitness center, while small, was quite nice, having modern equipment and needs for just about any "on-the-road" workout. The restaurant, 95 Cordova, has phenomenal food; dinner service was enjoyable with really good staff; while the breakfast menu was nice and delicious, the breakfast staff was quite poor, I had to practically beg for coffee refills, service was slow, not quite friendly nor attentive, and plenty of complaints at the tables around us, too. All in all, the hotel is a delightful experience.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Use the free tourist map and take a self-guided walking tour from the hotel each day. Almost everything is in walking distance.

Perfect Stay

The hotel was beyond expectations and the location was perfect. We really enjoyed our stay. The swankiest place around and still affordable. Well done.

We had a great vacation with the kids. This hotel was located in the perfect location right in the middle of downtown and walking distance to everything. The staff was very nice and the room was very clean. Overall I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

Casa Monica Hotel

We like this hotel and we like the restaurant, especially the five course tasting menu. This was our third stay here while passing through the area. We had two minor problems this time. The worst was that the sink did not drain. We didn't discover this till the evening so we didn't report it until check out. It eventually drained after a few hours. The other minor thing was that the bathroom door needs to be adjusted so that it stays open. The location is great and the staff was nice so I'm sure we'll stay here again.

Don't go on a wedding weekend!

We booked only a week before going and I didn't know or think to find out what else might be going on the weekend we were there. Turns out there was a wedding booked at the pool/hot tub area so we couldn't use that most of Saturday. The management offered to write off our (small) room service bill for our inconvenience, which was nice, but considering how much we paid for the room it wasn't really enough. We really wanted a relaxing weekend and this is probably not the best hotel for that.... the street and hallway noise were surprising. That being said, the restaurant and bar were lively, there is a coffee shop just off the lobby, the decor and rooms were nice - just as advertised. Next time I will find someplace a little quieter though.

There is a nice bakery/cafe/breakfast spot called "the Hot Spot" just across the courtyard of the Lightner Museum from the Hotel. Also the Cuban Restaurant "La Herencia" on Aviles, has good coffee and tres leches cake.

Gorgeous hotel in prime location

Casa Monica is a beautiful hotel steps from the many of the landmarks that St. Augustine has to offer. The staff performed impeccably and I felt that I was in good hands throughout. I missed the cafe which was under construction, but there was no shortage of stores, cafes and restaurants to try in the area.
