Staying in the Historical District

We are traveling to St. Augustine for the first time later this year. I am thinking that we would like to stay in the historical district where we can walk to restaurants and attractions, but I am am not sure where would be the most convenient (it looks on the map as if the hotels in the historical district are spread over a fairly large area). Which hotels would be in the best location? And might a B&B be a better choice than a hotel?

Try these places. They represent the best of the historic district lodging:

I have included 2 hotels and 2 B & B's. If they don't fit your budget or you want more suggestions, let us know.

If you're interested in the Casa Monica, they have a fantastic weekday special of $139 per night.

Just be aware of the addons to the 5 star hotels, parking upwards of $20, (it's cheaper to leave your car at a meter all day and get a ticket for $15), resort fee, internet fee, etc etc.

capnconrad,

Your point is well taken about parking fees, but this deal includes free internet (reg. $10/day).

The Historical district is only one mile from end to end. Any inn or hotel is within walking distance or the major restaurants and attractions. Parking is offered at most of the inns, so avoid the tickets and the meters. I'm pretty sure St. Augustine does not offer any proper 5 star hotels, but the inns are fabulous. If you see one tented for termites, just know they are protecting their property and guests. Termites are a fact of life down here for any building that contains wood. Especially the older ones. Stay in town. Eat and shop in town. Enjoy the town.

The Casa Monica is as close to a 5 star inn as St. Augustine has. Really a great place to stay.

What time of year will you be here? I think one of the best things about St. Augustine is the Bed and Breakfasts in the old town area. Casa Monica is also one of the best (if not the best) hotels in the city, but it is a bit pricey.

We will be in St. Augustine the weekend after Christmas. We will only be there two nights, which seems to limit us a lot with the B&Bs since many seem to require a three night stay. A couple that we seem to like are on Cedar Street. Hopefully that isn't too far from the center of the historic district.
