Casa Monica Resort & Spa, Autograph Collection

This hotel makes you feel as if you are a movie star or celebrity. I got top notch treatment and everything is 5 star here. The hotel is a piece of history itself. Incredibly rustic and at the same time modern and fresh rooms. I had a great view of the Plaza and Flagler College. You can't get more central location then this! Apparently Bill Clinton stayed here earlier this year. Good choice Bill!

Room Tip: ask for an upgrade during the week - they might have it available! Very friendly staff.

A wonderful review. Thank you so much, especially the comments about our service. We do consider ALL our guests celebrities although we do get our fair share of those that may have that "official celebrity" tag. Among the many we were indeed honored to host former President Clinton this past March. I hope you visit again soon.

The Casa Monica was a very nice hotel, but you pay a lot to stay there. It has all of the basics you expect from a nice hotel: clean room, good service, etc. However, almost everything in St. Augustine is within walking distance so you can stay at hotels with similar amenities for less and still be near everything.

Thank you for sharing.There are hotels and bed and breakfasts in the immediate area that are nice and honestly, less expensive. We want your visit to Casa Monica to be an experience that provides the value that is worth the difference. I am disappointed that while you enjoyed Casa Monica you didnt perceive the value to be what you expected.

This is probably the most high-end hotel in Saint Augustine's historic district. Easy walking distance to St. George Road (main street through the town), the waterfront, etc. Staff was very nice and offered suggestions for meals. The hotel itself is very unique and pretty. The lobby is small with a lovely lounge and attached restaurant. We came back after dinner out and a jazz band was playing. It was my young daughter's birthday and they played "Happy Birthday" to her. My only issues were that the hotel layout is a bit strange in that our room was quite a walk from the central elevators. If you have trouble walking, ask for a room near the middle elevators. Also there was no refrigerator in the room but one was brought up promptly upon request. Summary: if you like nicer hotels and want to be in the heart of St. Augustine this is a good choice!

Thank you for choosing Casa Monica to spend your daughter's birthday. I am glad we were able to provide a refrigerator. As I have mentioned in previous responses, the Premium room types offer more space and come equipped with refrigerators and wet bars as a standard. I agree that if walking any distance is an issue to please request a room nearer the elevator. Due to the configuration of this historic building, the layout is a bit different from a "normal" hotel. These little nuances, including the fact that no two rooms of the 138 are exactly alike, are what make Casa Monica such a unique experience. Please visit again soon and I do appreciate you sharing your experience.

This hotel is so beautiful and different from your typical hotel. The art work that hangs on the walls through out the hotel, even on the guest floors is beautiful. Even though the pool is not a typical Florida resort pool, for the limited space the hotel has it is very well done, and relaxing. My kids couldn't wait to take a dip in the pool after touring the forts and streets on this hot July day. Everyone we encountered was very friendly from the check in to the housekeepers. The rooms were very clean and nice. I look forward to returning again.

Room Tip: I would recommend getting the larger regular rooms if you are traveling with the family. I saw the k...

Your tip is a good one. The larger premium room types are much more accommodating and popular for families because of the additional space and seating, not to mention the wet bar and refrigerator that are not available in the standard room types. I'm thrilled that you appreciate the art in the Casa Monica. Many of these artists' works are featured exclusively in our Kessler hotels. Thank you for sharing and mentioning the staff. It is truly appreciated and means a lot to be recognized for their efforts.

The Casa Monica is located very conviently in St Augustine. It is a beautiful hotel and very clean. It is within walking distance to shopping restaurants etc. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a queen room with a sitting area and had ample room for 4 adults and a toddler. I would recommend this hotel highly if you are looking to experience old St Augustine and learn of some it's history.

By your description, I believe you stayed in one of our Premium rooms. These cost a bit more but are our most popular type of rooms because they are much more spacious than the Standard room type. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit. I never tire of walking through St. Augustine and discovering more of its history each time. There is so much to absorb and learn. Please visit often. Thank you for taking the time to share.

We have been to Casa Monica several times and have never had any complaints. The staff is always friendly and the rooms are nice and clean. The beds are comfortable and we have enjoyed everything from the pool to the restaurant. The location is ideal and it has always been quite when we visited. My only complaint, we had some virgin drinks at the pool and felt they were a bit expensive, over $7. You do have to pay for parking also.
