We spend the past weekend at Casa Monica in St. Augustine.
The valet parking area is interesting, with a couple of classic cars on display. The valets were polite and attentive. I left my cell phone in the car, they were happy to run and retrieve it after they parked the car. The check-in was easy and polite. The room was clean and comfortable. The bar was intimate, with a nice jazz trio playing.
I do have a few concerns, however. We called housekeeping before leaving in the morning to ask for more towels. None were delivered, so when we went out for the evening, we stopped at the desk on the way out and asked them to have more delivered - again, nothing. More concerning, they charge $24 per day for parking. I assumed, incorrectly that they kept the car somewhere protected - I was wrong. We were out walking and passed a public outdoor lot and saw my car there. They charge $9.95 per day for internet. This on top of more than $250 per night for the room. Come on - internet access costs nothing, just provide it. Finally, be careful in the bar - they add 20% as a service charge and don't tell you when they present the bill.
The above notwithstanding, the place is classic, it's beautiful and the staff does try to make your visit enjoyable.
