This is one of the friendliest staffs I've ever encountered. Not only was every staff member helpful when asked, most asked how my day was going and could they do something to enhance my experience. This is a great "family" environment. Would have liked for chairs and umbrellas on the beach to have been included with room rate. I felt... More

We recently stayed 7 nights and enjoyed our experience at the hotel. This was our fourth trip to the Don and it was a great time. This check-in process was much better than our previous experience and the staff was excellent during our entire visit. The hotel was well kept and overall we were very pleased and would return.

I attended a family member's wedding on the beach at this grand hotel and it couldn't have been more perfect. My stay was for 3 nights so I got a pretty good look around during the days.

A couple of years ago I lamented the art deco-ish look that is now the main floor/bar area. I didn't much like that the beautiful mahogany bar was removed and replaced with a white one. The bar area has grown on me, though. Although the tables and chairs are a stop up from Ikea they are at least comfortable. But... More

My teenage daughter, her friend, and I shared a one-bedroom suite at the Don CeSar in February while visiting Florida colleges. I have always loved this hotel as it was a favorite of my grandparents many years ago. I also adore a big, old hotel. The Don CeSar did not disappoint me at all. The room was very nice and... More

This hotel is the best hotel in St.Pete Beach. Dont expect a tropical experience but do expect good service, good food, a nice beach and a small room. No complaints but do some research about St.Pete before your trip. For families it's great. For a young couple your money is better spent on Ft. Lauderdale / South Beach. Overall though... More
