My family has come to the Don for many years, lured by its grace, charm, beauty, history, and access to a kid-friendly beach with gentle waves. Now we have another reason to return: superb customer service. We had a glitch with our room (the first time ever), and Kathryn at the front desk put in a substantial amount of time... More

The Don Cesar is a wonderful Grand hotel. Yes the rooms are a little small because its a historic hotel but the restoration is gorgeous, the staff is truly wonderful and the best part of the experience. 5 star service at every level. The restaurants are the best in St Pete's. Really the best place to stay in the area... More

We couldn't say enough about this hotel. Everything was just perfect from our check in to check out. The staff was very courteous and they always wanted to know what they could do for us. Sitting around the pool with the gutair player, you thought you in the islands! Our room had two double beds and the mattress 'twas luxurious.... More

Been going to the Don since I was a kid and spend many Christmases there. Great tree and decor! This time we happened to be there on spring break. I was happy to see they are keeping up the property. New elevator decor and baths, new lobby furn and chandeliers. Great gift shops. Splash has great swimwear! There is an... More

Architecturally, quite the building. However, all modern rooms, very pleasant views, the gulf breeze and water are out the back door. There are limitations, the parking requires some walking and step climbing, there are some uneven surfaces in the hallways covered up by carpet, the elevators are slow. Overall, nice experience.

The hotel has beautiful rooms for business events. I just attended a small conference. What a treat. Wonderful location. Great weather. Beautiful beach. Great running. The conference room was comfortable. The breakfast and inch were very good. The facilities, grounds, restaurants and rooms were super comfortable. Wish that most of my conferences were here!

I found the Don Cesar to be a hotel that was well maintained from a facility as well as a property standpoint. Being located directly on the beach added to the overall attraction. My trip was a mix of business and pleasure so I got a feel for the excellent meeting rooms as well as the very nice pools and... More

I rarely write reviews but I had such a wonderful time these past four days I had to. I had a reunion with 2 college friends and this hotel was wonderful. The staff was exceptional and the services were excellent. Brittany at the pool couldn't have done enough to make our stay more enjoyable from getting our chairs, serving our... More

I have traveled around the world so know what to expect from a top rated property. This one has the location to be envied of for sure but the service is not top rate. It is hit and miss at the best. Surprising that management allows this. Also be aware that guest rooms are small.
