    My wife and I went on our first vacation without kids. Wanted a nice place and found it. I only have two issues with the hotel 1. the pool is smal and was bathwater warm, I was not suprised given the age of the hotel and this did not bother me much since the beach was so close anyway. 2. the elevator was like an oven, this did bother me coming in from the heat and then standing in a hot box. The rest of the hotel was perfect. We were well cared for and arrived several hours before check in and there was no issue, they took us directly to our room and the staff at the front desk gave excelent recomendations on eating options since we had come directly from the airport and not had lunch yet. The staff was always helpfull even before we arrived I called the hotel and to ask about any recomendations for ground transport from JAX and they recomended a car service that was outstanding with a prenegotiated price for staying at the Casa Monica. The room is what I had expected and everything worked correctly. The breakfast at the 95 Cordova was the best I have had in a long time. In short when we return we will stay here.

    Unique Quality: Location this hotel is in the perfect location. You can walk to everything it is suprising how walkable this town is but the hotel is perfecly located.

    Classy Place Downtown

    by

    We used the special Florida resident rate and stayed here one night at a discount price. The room was nice -- large shower but no tub. The lobby downstairs is a bit small, but the coffee shop (w/Starbucks drinks) was handy. Room and lobby had free wi-fi; it worked well. Only disappointment was the rooftop pool area had a cold hot tub, and when we returned to our room two hours before checkout time, the key no longer worked. The desk clerk said they sometimes change close to check-out. He gave us new key cards; luckily we were not dripping wet. Not a great feature for a pricey hotel. I later mailed the general manager a comment letter about the cold hot tub and the key thing -- but got no response. Another drawback is the only parking is valet -- at $20/night. The location is great; you are in the heart of St. Augustine and can walk to everything. Not sure if I'd stay here again since nearby chain hotels are probably OK and half the price.

    Unique Quality: They include complimentary access to an upscale beachside resort but it's about 5 miles away, north of Vilano Beach. The sand was a bit rough and rocky with shells, but the pool areas looked very nice. Midweek, it was pretty slow....

    The rooftop pool at the hotel does have some shaded areas and also cushy cabanas.

    Directions: Downtown on the square

    Extravagance..

    by

    This is the crema de la crema of luxury in St. Augustine. This hotel is relatively new and all the shops that are on the street beside it as well are new...It opened its doors as a remodeled hotel in December 1999.

    When I lived here it used to be the town courthouse.

    Unique Quality: King Juan Carlos and Queen Sophia of Spain stayed here in April 2001.

    CASA MONICA HOTEL
    Built in...

    by

    CASA MONICA HOTEL
    Built in 1888 by the founder of the YMCA, Franklin Smith.
    We did not stay here but wandered through the lobby areas to get out of the unseasonably cold Florida weather, low 40's!

    Unique Quality: Looks like a Medieval European castle and has 5 towers. Moorish-Revival style architecture.

    Directions: Located across the street from the Lightner Museum & Flagler College.

Enjoyed Casa Monica

by TripAdvisor Member travelpaws

We stayed just one night at Casa Monica. The room was very nice, the bathroom quite large. Staff was very friendly. Hotel was convenient to walking around the small historic town. Really no complaints, except that hotels everywhere are adding parking fees of $15 and resort fees per per per dayof $10 total. Plus tax. It all adds up.

great family getaway

by A TripAdvisor Member

We recently spent 4 nights at the lovely Casa Monica with our 3 children. We loved the whole experience! The staff was very friendly and helpful. the hotel is in a great spot. We stayed in one of the "signature suites" and thought it well worth the costs. highly recommend this hotel, can't wait to return.

Fantastic!

by A TripAdvisor Member

We stayed at Casa Monica one night (Christmas eve) on our way back home from Orlando. Among many hotels I have stayed in US, Europe and Asia, it was one of the best. Of course, there are many hotels in the world that have more luxurious interior and more convenient amenities than Casa Monica, but its unique blend of traditional beauty and modern cleanness was something that can be hardly rivaled by any other hotel. (You know, there are many "historic" hotels that need substantial refurbishment.) Beddings were immaculate, room was clean and beautiful. Staffs were very kind and always ready to help (especially those in charge of valet parking, including "Joe"). I and my wife loved this hotel and promised to revisit this hotel in the near future. We also had dinner at a Spanish restaurant named "Columbia" five minutes walk from the hotel, and it was great as well.

Great Romantic Getaway

by A TripAdvisor Member

My fiance and I stayed at the Casa Monica over Memorial Day weekend 2004. What a great romantic find! The atmosphere is cozy and warm. Our room was somewhat small, but the bathroom was fairly roomy. Decor was exceptional -- felt like home. Very romantic setting. Linens were crisp white. Cleaning staff always said "hello". Staff in general was formal, but friendly. Location is great -- lots to do in the immediate area. Great place if you are looking for an elegant escape for two!
