Yes, it's a classic. Yes, it's outrageously expensive and yes, some parts are a little worn, but forget all that, because it's worth it. We had always promised ourselves that we would stay there at least once, so we did, for two days in a January of dodgy weather. As it turned out, the Sunday of the weekend we were... More

I'm happy your stay with us was well worth it! Nothing beats a great Martini in the Lobby Bar, followed by dinner in Maritana Grille. And, I'm so happy that you got out and discovered the town of Pass-A-Grille, It's such a quaint and historic community with many unique dining and shopping options. Thanks for taking the time to share... More

My husband and I used to stay elsewhere on St. Petes Beach, but had always admired the Don. Three years ago we decided to celebrate an anniversary by staying there, and now it is the only place we stay, or will ever stay, when we stop at this great beach town on our winter trip south.

I booked this hotel for my partner and myself for New Year's Eve and New Year's Day after reading reviews and viewing pictures online I thought this would be perfect unfortunately on arriving we had to wait for our room to be ready which is acceptable but this went into hours rather than 1 hour,when we were shown to our...

The Don Cesar is a true Florida Grand Dame. Classic on the outside, with excellent service from the can-do staff, it boasts a pristine beach and pool area, and an excellent spa and fitness center. The only thing keeping me from giving them excellent over all is the tired look of interior hallways. It could use a facelift that matches... More

The King Charles room has beautiful natural light, which is great for a conference that has a lot of scheduled time indoors. The food was delicious, the vies were great, and everyone was really friendly and helpful. The staff was also great- Ashley behind the scenes was really helpful and the people on the floor were great. The captains Reggie,... More

This was our organization's second conference in this hotel and my first. The facility itself is lovely (though I understand it will be updated over this year and the next) and every meal function was excellent, with the lunchtime desserts especially noted by our attendees. Ashley Succow, our conference manager, was phenomenal throughout the whole process & the banquet manager,... More

We used the Don Cesar for our recent conference. We're a group of about 150 people so nothing enormous. Originally we used the hotel for the first time two years ago but had such a great experience we immediately booked two years out, for this January 8-11. Everything from the rooms, view, and staff were exceptional. I will be returning.... More

Spent almost a week at the Don CeSar. Very nice property and all in all, in good shape. Our room was somewhat small for a resort but it is over 80 years old. Smallest bathroom I have ever had. The 2 pools are nice and at least they have an adult only pool. Beach is very nice but getting chairs... More

My family of 5 and I just stayed at The Don Cesar for 6 days and I have not one complaint! The room was beautiful and clean, the staff were attentive, and the food excellent! The entire hotel was kid friendly which made our stay with 3 kids that much better! We are already planning a trip back!

Just returned from a week at the Don Cesar. This is a classic old hotel and certain aspects reflect that fact. We had a King Luxury Suite. It was nice to have two rooms so we didn't feel on top of each other for the week. The downside was the sitting room was windowless. The upside was that although a... More
