“Great Weekend - Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

I met my sister here for a weekend visit. It was a beautiful property - even the valet "tunnel" is interesting with the antique cars parked! We loved our room with the arch details - plenty of space and we liked the nice jazz on the Bose system. Every staff member was pleasant and helpful. Great location to shop and eat - you can walk to so many nice places. We had breakfast in the dining room each morning - it was wonderful. Darryl was our server - He was great - we really enjoyed chatting with him. I would not hesitate to reserve at the Casa Monica again - and since we both enjoyed ourselves so much and have enough time to explore everything - - I'm sure we will be going back sooner than later!

Well, we certainly hope you visit soon and often, especially since Orlando is such a short and convenient drive. Thank you for your very kind comments and especially taking the time to recognize Darryl in our restaurant. He is a fine gentleman and I'm proud to have him on our team. There is so much more to explore and discover in St. Augustine. We look forward to your return visit.

Such a beautiful hotel to stay at. The location is perfect and you can see all of Old St. Augustine without using your car. We walk to all the location we wanted to see. The staff at the hotel could not have been more pleasant. Our accomadations were perfect. The room was very spacious and exceptionaly clean. A room refrig would have made the room perfect. The rooms have been upgraded and worth the price.

We enoyed the lobby lounge and the meal we had at the hotel's restraunt. I wish we could have stayed another night. We will definetly stay there when we go back.

We decided, almost on a whim, to swing by St. Augustine on our way to Sanibel. Using my Marriott points, I decided on this hotel. Man, what a great find. Perfectly situated near the town center -- and a great ambience and service. The hotel is one of the Kessler collection's and the same level of detail to both the interior and service were apparent!

The room was very cool -- not overly large, but it's an old restored hotel! We had one of the cool unique rooms with 1/2 windows -- bizarre but cool if you're into eclectic (and we are).

Cheap? Nope -- but very cool and worth the price if you want great service and a unique place with character.

I am so thrilled that you "discovered" Casa Monica and St. Augustine on your way from NC to Sanibel. You made mention of eclectic and the unitque windows. One of the nuances of our historic building is that no two rooms are exactly alike and if you stand outside the building and viewing from the street or plaza you can see all of the different window designs and shapes. Thank you for sharing,your comment and recognizing the Kessler touch. Please visit again soon.

Wonderful place to stay if you want to treat yourself to a view of the original St. Augustine, and to have quick access to the city center. Careful of rooms on 5th floor - very tiny. Parking very expensive...but drop off your bags and then park in the city parking garage two blocks away.

Room Tip: 5th floor is tiny - the cost difference for 'Premium' rooms is worth it.

Thank you for sharing. Your tip on premium rooms is a very good one especially if you plan to spend quite a bit of time in your room. The additional space along with a wet bar, refrigerator, and extra seating make the Premium rooms our most popular choice. For an extended visit the city parking garage is certrainly an alternative, keeping in mind it is approximately 4 blocks from the hotel. Your comments are appreciated and I do hope you you can visit again soon.

Casa Monica is right in the middle of old town St Augustine, which means it's easy walking distance to all of the sights. The staff was very accommodating, the room was superb, and the pool was quite nice, too. The only complaint I have is that the balcony for our room was in disrepair. Overall, if you're willing to spend enough to stay here, you'll get your money's worth. Here's an important tip: The side roads are difficult to drive on because of many blind corners. You can avoid this by using the valet parking around the side of the building. It's tricky to find because it looks like you're driving into the courtyard.

Thank you for your very kind comments, especially the mention of our staff. We dedicate significant resources to select and train our Grand Performers and love to hear acknowledgement of our efforts. I am aware of the balcony you mentioned and a complete replacement is being fabricated to replace the one in disrepair. I appreciate your review and hope you can visit again soon.

This grand historic hotel lives up to its reputation as it transcends time and offers a lovely stay. For discerning travelers who will enjoy being in the center of the old town, walking to nearby attractions and restaurants is a part of the charm. Stately, yet comfortable rooms with coffee, attentive staff and expedient and helpful (parking) valet service round out the pleasure of being here. The charge for internet IS disappointing, and I would have supposed a welcome chocolate.....but perhaps I am thinking TOO old world! Altogether, a stellar treat in a gem of history and elegance!

Room Tip: We enjoyed the quiet of the inner courtyard.

Good hotel. Stayed in march, 17.
Good location and close to many good restaurants and bars.
Wi-fi internet is not free and I can't believe that a hotel that costs U$$ 250 a night don't give internet for free to their guests. I paid the internet and can[t use, once the wi-fi signal was very poor in my room and they refund me.
Sleep quality wasn't good, once we can't sleep too much with a baby screeaming in the of next door all night.

Thank you for sharing your experience and its disappointing that we rated only a three star review. Many full service hotels and resorts do charge for in room internet but we offer complimentary wifi in our public areas as an alternative. I am very sorry that your neighbors disturbed your privacy. I do appreciate your comments.
