My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful two night "stay-cation" at the Casa Monica Hotel in St. Augustine, Florida on July 23 and 24, 2013. Aside from the delightful architecture, furnishings and ambiance of the Casa Monica (formerly the old Cordova Hotel) there are two huge reasons to stay here. First is the central location of the hotel itself. Most of the major hotels, restaurants and attractions in St. Augustine are within easy walking distance of this hotel, located at the intersection of King and Cordova Streets and across the street from Flager College and the Lightner Museum. Second is the convenience of valet parking. Okay, it costs $24 per day but just try finding a parking spot in the old city. Even if you do find a vacant parking meter for $1.50 per hour there is a three hour parking limit. Do yourself and your family a big favor and pay for valet parking; they will even haul all your luggage up to your room after you check in. Then go up to your spacious, well appointed room and if you have a street view you can watch the meter maids ticket the cars parked in expired meter spaces. Our spacious room was wonderful and furnished with a very comfortable king bed, a huge flat screen TV, a mini refrigerator, Starbucks coffee, extra pillows, two bath robes, an executive desk and swivel chair, and a sofa with a reading table. The air conditioning was refreshing and cold, but just a bit loud. The only other negative things I can say about the room were that it could have used a coffee table and they charge $9.95 plus tax for high-speed internet. NOTE TO MANAGEMENT: HOW ABOUT CONSIDERING FREE IN-ROOM INTERNET? Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay at the Casa Monica. Our room with a king bed and "preferred" view (of King Street) cost us $274.18 for two nights including room, tax and valet parking.
