St. Pete Beach
A luxurious beachfront stay at a glamorous hotel on the dunes, boasting a long list of illustrious guests
Discover a whole new meaning of "la vie en rose" at this glam getaway on the sands of the Gulf of Mexico. The Don CeSar is one of Florida’s most legendary hotels, known as The Pink Palace for its iconic flamingo-hued façade. But it’s not just the outside where things are rosy. Inside the St. Pete Beach hotel are 277 gorgeous guest accommodations with views of the boulevard, city or gulf; a wide array of dining destinations, from two grills to a chic café to a lobby bar; and Spa Oceana, with its waterfall-equipped Whisper Lounge. Younger guests love the kids camp, game room, ice-cream parlor and "dive-in movies."
The Don also proudly boasts one heck of a history. Dating back to 1928, it’s hosted everyone from F. Scott Fitzgerald to Clarence Darrow and made cameos on MTV and in Robert de Niro’s Once Upon a Time in America. In fact, it was one of the founding members of the Historic Hotels of America collection, back in 1989. Following a renovation in 2012, the AAA Four Diamond Award and TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner continues to be a favorite among travel-industry insiders, with everyone from Signature Travel Network to Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure having endorsed the blushing beauty.
