Amazing time ‼️

We came down for a family vacation to the Don Cesar as we always do. The rooms and front desk staff was amazing and always willing to help. On the beach jukobi was beyond helpful when it came to getting us chairs and umbrellas and he have such a positive attitude. I can’t wait to return next summer!

One of the nation's leading resorts

Chicago, Illinois

Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig once stayed at the Don CeSar. And remember Robert DeNiro and James Woods frolicking on the beach, in the Gulf of Mexico, in front of the famous Pink Palace in the movie "Once Upon a Time in America?" Opened in 1928, the Don CeSar at 3400 Gulf Boulevard on St. Petersburg Beach on Florida's West Coast is one of the nation's leading resorts. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. For our three-day stay, my wife and I reserved a fourth floor, Gulf View suite with a balcony, mini-bar, two 42-inch HDTVs, king-size bed, luxurious two-sink bathroom, spacious living room with sofa and desk with chair, separate bedroom, iron and ironing board. How often do you compliment a shower? The hotel includes two excellent restaurants, a popular lobby bar, an outstanding ice cream parlor and several retail shops. And there is easy access to downtown St. Petersburg and the world famous Dali Museum. If you're visiting St. Petersburg, the Don CeSar is the place to stay.
