Overall it was good but...

Late but I suppose typical check in at 4pm...the room was nice and clean but small. The hotel was built in the 1900's so I guess space was limited then. Not so bad, but the bathroom....T-I-N-Y. The toilet is squeezed in between sink and tub...your knees practically touch the tub. We had to sit sideways... Then at 4 am, after a visit to the bathroom...the toilet would not flush, the water came up to the top. Didn't sleep well all night.. the bed could be from the 1900's? Seemed like the coils were leaving impressions on our bodies. Woke up reluctantly because we had an 11am checkout...Shouldn't you get the room for 24 hours? Had to call the front desk for a plumber...after he left we rushed to get out just after 11. Everything else was great. The hotel is beautiful, the staff overall was pleasant..just a man at the front desk that doesn't seem like he should be in customer service, but otherwise everyone was great. The beach..to die for. white sand and the pool, outside restaurant and downstairs bar were great...good service and food. We will go back!

Everything 1st class

Don CeSar on St Petersburg is a wonderful place for a nice restful vacation but it still close to many of the local attractions and nightlife if you wish to partake. The staff is unbelievably nice and accomodating.

Luxury on St. Pete Beach

Everything was spot-on. Best help of any hotel I've ever stayed in and the Hotel as a whole is a gem. Great pools, bars, restaurants, beach, spa...well worth every penny

Simple but necessary amenities included.

We had a 3/4 beach front view from the fourth floor (room 466). Looking out we saw the beautifully landscaped courtyard, which headed west towards the inground pool which also afforded us a beautiful view of the gulf. The hotel had wireless internet, free use of the gym, free use of the pool, free self-parking,free use of suntan lotion and a few other "free" amenities. However, there is a required $22.00 per day surcharge to cover these freebies. The room had about a 40-inch HD LCDTV and single-serve Keureg coffee maker. Furnishings had granite counters (nightstand, desk, bathroom). The room was not that large but enough room for a romantic getaway for two. What I did not like was the noise from adjoining rooms. This had an adjoining room door which may have contributed to the noise. Otherwise, the service from the concierge, front door persons, to the front desk were exemplary. The really seemed to enjoy their work and eager to assist you. We were there first week of March, 2010.

don cesar working vacation weekend bash

bad weather on friday, gave seminar 8 hours, not great lunch on the lower level. room a little small for the price, but great LG hdtv and king size bed. really want a better weather weekend! sun came out on saturday, pool was great, all kinds of people checking on us, getting us food and drink, great pool deck amenities, umbrellas, good attendants and towels, bathrooms close by and clean, great bar and lunch area, and lots of nice people to meet! went to spa, had manicures and pedicures, pricey but very good. ditto main restaurant "meritana", fantastic food and atmoshpere, huge salt water fish tanks! hand and foot wait staff, great drinks. same deal on sunday, but worked out in spa in the morning. on balance, not cheap but superior service and quality than most. if you are going to spend the money, they made it worth it!

When you want a

This hotel is a blast from the past with great service and even though it is an old building, everything id updated and in great shape. Service is the best!!! The only downside is the size of the room, but that is to be expected with the age of the hotel. They do make the best of the space available and with the comfortable lounge area on the first floor there is no reason to spend time in the room. Private beach, pool, bar and restuarant at the pool, great fitness center, shops, Ice cream shop - what more do you need.

Skidders (Greek) and Snappers (seafood) restaurants. Both about a mile from the hotel. Have gone back twice and both times we were extremely satisfied.
