If you like to be self-contained and don't want the fuss of a 5 star property like the Don Cesar, try the Beach House. It gives you better value because you have a full size kitchen. The staff still treats you like a five-star property would, however.

Unique Quality: On the beach, great friendly staff; accommodating. Clean.

Directions: Right off of exit 17 from 275

In the Pink

The Don CeSar is a large, pink, but gorgous hotel located on Saint Pete Beach. Opening in 1928 it was a where all of society went, such as American writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. Today it is a St. Petersburg landmark and the nicest hotel in the area.

This hotel is very luxurious and I can highly recommend it for couples on their honeymoon or those just wanting to get away from it all. It is pricey but I think it is worth the money.

The hotel is also said to be home to the ghost of the developer Thomas Rowe. So if you stay here keep your eyes open and you may see him yourself.

Unique Quality: Direct access to St. Pete beach
6 restaurants on the grounds

We were unable to stay here because of the lack of funds. At present a one night stay with breakfast for two will run over $300.00 US. Thomas Rowe, the builder, died without a will and the hotel soon fell into despair. The US Army bought it and used it as a convalescent hospital, the VA used it as office space and then it was abandoned. In 1973 it reopened as a luxury hotel and now is a Pet friendly hotel that even furnishes pet massage therapy with a special pillow.

Unique Quality: Gatsby Era pampering. Five star dining.
